Life lessons

I remember on an episode of “Modern Family” in which Haley is off to college and Phil gives her a book of Phlisophicals, it is one of my favorite episodes till date!! Today during lunch I read this Article on Scoop Whoop, which was on the same lines as the episode – Life lessons. It was really nice, so I started to think about what would I add in my life lessons list. Well, the list started out really slow and within no time I got to 60 and then I had to stop!!! So here they are :
