Life is too short to spend the majority of it in the "Serious-Mode".

Relax. Laugh. Smile.

This life isn't a dress rehearsal ... you only life once; and hopefully at the end of your days, your regrets are few.

How do I rationalise this. What is the most important "life lesson"? All I can say is be the best that you can and treat others the same as you would like to be treated

The most important life lesson I've learned at 23 is to Love.

Trust your intuition.
Platitudes are unhelpful and annoying.

Trust has to be earned.

Keep your eyes open for new adventures.

Learn from past mistakes.

Don't treat your next like your ex

Anything you think is sweet, I'm a little more than that.

Always follow your gut instinct. And if you say yes then exciting things happen sometimes

never be jealous again. Take life as it is.

Well that's just my opinion, sorry if you don't like.

Sometimes the things we desire the most aren't the best thing for us.

Trust your gut instinct!

Dont live with regrets. Whatever you have done is done. Just move forward and make the best of any situation.

Treat others like you want to be treated yourself because Karma is a bitch!

Well I'm only 23, so I still have tons of learning to do. But I'd say the biggest thing I've learned so far is that you shouldn't spend your life striving to please everyone. It's impossible.

As Nietzsche says "Amor Fati." IN English that says, I love my Fate, and also, my Fate loves me.
So I made up this ditty:
Amor fati
I love my fate
and my fate loves me.

In short, if you love life, it loves you back.

There is never just one, I'm still learning.
But this sums up pretty well most of them, I think.

Wow...so many lessons I've learned over the years but here are just a few of my favourite ones...

1. Always treat people the way you want to be treated - otherwise karma will kiss your ass!
2. Never settle for anything less than you deserve
3. Life is too short not to be completely happy and fulfilled
4. Everything happens for a reason even if you don't understand it in that moment
5. Be generous with your 'I love you's' because you may not get the another chance to say it

Seriously, the list could go and on and on...
