40 Lessons Of 40: #31-40

In thirty days I am turning 40-years-old. I am counting down the 40 lessons that have helped me to live, to love, to laugh, and to cope with loss.  These are lessons that make my life easier and more peaceful now, and lessons that would have made my life a lot easier and more peaceful when I was in my twenties.  They may not change the whole world, but I guarantee they will change the way you see the whole world.

So please help me celebrate forty years by coming back and reading these life lessons.  If you like, please share on Facebook, Twitter, whatever mode of communication you enjoy the most.

Lesson #32: When In Doubt Ask How To Help
Lesson #33: "Young People Today" Are No Different From Young People Yesterday
Lesson #34: It Is Insane To Argue With The Weather
Lesson #35: Random Acts Of Kindness Can Save The World
Lesson #36: Liberation Is Having The Audacity To Ask, "Why The Hell Not?"
