Happy Blogiversary to me! #6 Baby!

Today, this Sky Fishing Dragonfly blog turns six years old! Hard to believe More than 1,000 posts about life, love, family, friends, ups, downs, curves and stops have all been shared here...This tiny corner of the world where this Dragonfly is perched upside down for all to see.

In the last six years, I've learned a lot about what I know and what I didn't know that I knew. (cue James Taylor's "Fire and Rain") So, in honor of this blog turning six, here are a few lessons I've picked up along the way...(Only six even though there are more like six hundred):

1. Be thankful every single moment.
Living with a grateful heart will open life to so much possibility.

2. Be nice.
No matter where you are, live with compassion and kindness for the world around you.

3. Good friends are good for you.
I am here in this very moment because of amazing friends.

4. Place meaning on taking responsibility especially when it counts.
No one is perfect. Everyone fails.  It's important to admit it, apologize and move on.

5. Sometimes I just don't know that I know.
It's true. We're smarter than we think.

6. When in doubt, WRITE through it or blog it.
The power of writing has never failed me. Not once.
