I was reading Real Simple Magazine on my flight today and found some really interesting and entertaining articles. Since I’m totally jet lagged right now and can barely form a coherent thought, I thought I’d share a really cute one with you.
Here are 10 Life Lessons From Childrens Stories (see if you can guess where each saying came from - answers on bottom of post)
- Never, never, accept candy - or shiny red apples - from strangers.
- Invest wisely, so the elements can’t huff and puff and blow your house down.
- Lying doesn’t pay much. Sure, it might not cost as much as a nose job, but it will save you a whole lot of sea trouble.
- Always test a matress before purchasing.
- When you’re in a jam, think outside the tower for the solution. You probably already possess the tools to free yourself.
- Venture outside your comfort zone every once in a while. You might be surprised what you find.
- Never take a bet you’re not willing to lose - unless you’re the cheating type.
- You have to kiss a few frogs (and moles) to find your prince. Plus: Good things come in small packages.
- Strive for a combination of athletics and brains. Even the fastest runners can lose at something.
- If left unchecked, greed can grow and grow, and eventually your whole (giant) world comes crashing down.
