This I know ...

A McDonalds dinner box does not contain dinner

Subway stores are not restaurants

To lose weight, you have to eat less and exercise more. It's not rocket science. (And yeah, I don't necessarily follow my own advice).

Some men are wankers. So are some women. Avoid where possible

It is possible to be too rich and/or too thin

Celebrities and royals are just people. They are not better than anyone else. Often richer, in some cases more talented, more famous, and/or more screwed up. Sorry, but there it is.

You can't always have what you want. But you can give it a bloody good try.

Sometimes life sucks. But it can rock as well. Treasure the good times because they keep you warm during the hard times.

The more you avoid an issue in life, the more likely it is to bite you in the arse when it is not convenient. Deal with it and be done with it.

If God had not wanted us to be happy, She would not have given us gelato. Or chocolate. Or sex. Or whatever rocks your socks.

When the chips are down, some people you thought cared about you will take off with the whole packet. A real friend/family member will buy you a new pack and share them with you.

Kids really do grow up too fast.

Readers, what have you learned in life?

My late Nanna told my dad this when he was very little 10% of the people you know care about you, 10% will hate you and the remaining 80% don't care either way. so forget about 90% of people and spend all your time caring for the 10% who ARE important. That has given me clarity!

Thats all so true.

Lady Estrogen said...

It's so true, especially the biting you in the ass thing. I'm a big fan of denial, so that one is a toughie for me ;)

I always abide by the rule, Never expect anything and then you can never be dissapointed x

Mrs Woog, that's what my grandmother used to say.

Good post. All true.

I have learnt that I keep learning every day. Especially when I think I've reached a new understanding about the meaning of life.
I guess that's what keeps it all interesting :-)

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella said...

Amen! :D I've learnt that there's always a lesson in things-even if it does completely suck at the time :P

Jen said...

I love your comment about celebrities, so true!

I've learnt that you shouldn't always treat others as you would like to be treated yourself, better to go with your gut instinct!

Thanks so much ladies. Another thing I know is that women are wise - and I'm always learning new things!
