This year, I asked people to write about Lessons Learned.
And I wasn’t talking about lessons that you learned in school.
Although you might have learned them in school.
I mean people learn lots of things in school.
But preferably not.
Because we did that.
You could share a lesson that you have learned that has stayed with you. Like:
Always nap when you go to the movies with your kids. The flick is going to suck anyway, so just make the most of that eight-bajillion-dollar ticket.
Sneaking out at overnight camp to meet your boyfriend is fun, but make sure he walks you back to your cabin. Otherwise, it’s just you, the raccoons, the bats, and your shame. And no matter what they say, even if you follow the treeline, you will walk into a lot of trees.
It doesn’t have to be pretty, but it has to be honest.
If you think you have writing chops, I would love to read your words.
