Assuming the Worst – Life Lesson #111

Assuming the Worst – Life Lesson #111

Assuming the worst seems to be such a worthless endeavor, though we all do it, sometimes. Well. Fine. I won’t speak for all of us. But assuming on anyone or any one thing does happen. And it’s worthless. We haven’t had a life lesson in some time here on Informed Sharing. And while the title for this post was not originally a life lesson (more of a “this is what happened this summer”), I figured we could all use a good life lesson and assuming the worst (or … Read more…


Don’t Do, Teach! Life Lesson #71

Don’t Do, Teach! Life Lesson #71

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a life lesson and I’m excited to share this one with you, today. That’s not to say we’ve not been doing some learning around here, always. We began this month with sharing (informatively) all about Mags Room Challenge 2015 and this life lesson #71 goes along with that. Don’t Do, Teach. While I have been plenty able in many other areas of my life to adhere to this rule, in regard specifically to Maggie and her room, I have failed time and … Read more…

No More Wires Crossed with Dual Cable Clips +BONUS USES

If you are anything like me, you’d rather keep it neat when it comes to your cables and wires.

Rushing to the End, Do Not Miss the Journey – Life Lesson #18

Do you sometimes (or even most of the time) find yourself rushing through this thing we call life? So intent on getting to the end of (whatever) that you are paying no mind to all the treasures along the way… Stop. Stop rushing to the end. Do not miss the journey. There, that was easy. Pfft. If it were that easy, we’d all slow down and…well, that’s why we’re HERE today, with this life lesson #18. I’m compelling you to take a moment and listen (read) the words … Read more…


Mean People Suck – Life Lesson #104

Mean People Suck – Life Lesson #104

I was reminded of this life lesson recently, and had to share – mean people suck! They do. Beyond the fact that they are mean and that part sucks about ’em. Mean people suck. They suck the positivity out of situations, they suck good energy, they suck from the universe all that is right, nice, and kind. They just plain suck. The reminder came about when a few of those mean people decided to pick on my kid. Mean People Suck. Mags is a pretty normal (average?) middle … Read more…


You Are Such a Liar – But So Am I! Life Lesson #204

You Are Such a Liar – But So Am I! Life Lesson #204

You are such a liar – but so am I. Now that we’ve got that settled, everything is right as rain, yes?! Well, maybe I should explain why I’m going around calling us all liars. There is no getting around it, we lie. You do it, I do it, we all do it. And if you are sitting there shaking your head and mumbling that you’ve never ever lied in your life – not even once – then good for you; or not. Because you are probably lying. … Read more…


Listen to Engage, Not to Reply – Life Lesson #402

Listen to Engage, Not to Reply – Life Lesson #402

How well do you listen when you’re in a conversation? Do you listen to engage or simply to reply? I don’t want to bum anyone out with this, but it’s a powerful life lesson and one that we often (as humans) really mess up. We don’t listen properly. I know for sure that I’ve listened only to reply – having heard the first thing, but perhaps not the second or third thing(s) and then without paying any sort of attention to (whatever) was carefully crafting some brilliance in … Read more…


Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged: it’s not what you think – Life Lesson #63

We’ve all heard the phrase “judge not lest ye be judged”, or some variation of it – coming from the Bible and found in a couple of places; most popular (if that’s a thing) in Matthew 7:1. I am not now a (conventionally?) religious person, by choice; however, I am human and do follow a spiritual path that I believe is a good one. I’m stating this for the record, though I don’t have to. My point here is that this post is about those who judge, having … Read more…


There are Two Sides to Every Sheet – Life Lesson #62

There are Two Sides to Every Sheet – Life Lesson #62

Goodness, this life lesson should be one we all remember – that there are two sides to every sheet of paper (every sheet). And yet it is often forgotten by us willful humans as we navigate our lives, anxious to have our story heard or read or as we are writing it… There are two sides to every sheet of paper. I have to credit the learning of this life lesson to G (that AWEsome Sauce husband of mine); who learned it from his Uncle a very long … Read more…


Sometimes It Does Just Plain Suck – Life Lesson #2

Sometimes It Does Just Plain Suck – Life Lesson #2

Call “it” whatever you want, sometimes it does just plain suck. Whether you’re talking about life, love, happiness in general, or any other specific thing – you may come to a time where something doesn’t or even nothing seems to be going right. It happens. And I’m here to tell you that it’s actually okay. Sometimes it does just plain suck. In life, in all things, there has to be a balance. And even though I do believe you can achieve perfection in your life, you will go … Read more…
