7 Life Lessons Learned from High School

I can't speak for everyone when I say that High School sucked.

(In my defense, there were moments in my school that felt dang-near apocalyptic. At one point, we needed metal detectors to get in the school... and out!)

But I would be lying if I didn't say that High School taught me a thing or two -- ya know, about the stuff that really matters.

So, here are the 7 things High School taught me that I'd love to pass on to you:

1. Don’t be afraid to shine your light just because everyone else is pressured to do otherwise.

Be like the sun and shine on everyone. :)

2. Think outside the box (or outside the high school ‘matrix’) of what it means to be 'popular' and consider re-defining it on your own terms.

3. Respond, don’t react to situations (especially trivial things that probably don't matter in the grand scheme of things).

4. Nobody actually cares -- as much as you think they do.

I swear, I just remember thinking all eyes were on me all the time when that couldn't be further from the truth! Nobody cares. I can just... let go and be myself. Phew.

5. Make an effort to focus on character development just as much as career development.

Talk about the things that really matter? JK, career is important too, but you know what I mean.

6. Read, read, read and take autonomy over your own learning outside the main subjects that are taught in school.

Because we live in the age of information, so... why not?

7. You will never have it all figured out. I wish I could tell you you will. But nope. Embrace the uncertainty!
