31 Things I've Learned In 31 Years {My Birthday Post}

We all have to do things we don't want to do

Family is everything

Be the king of your castle, no matter what your castle is.
There is a solution to every one of life's problems!
Be a bow-tie man, its just classy.

FriendsR4Life! Til' the wheels fall off!
Put on a tough face but be able to take a punch!

There is no such thing as a spoiled kid. {Yes, that is me on my 3rd birthday riding my new pony}
Tattoos Hurt & Last Forever

I can only hope to be the second best dad in the world.
Bad things happen but you HAVE to keep your sense of humor!

The things you do today will be what you look back on forever.
A good old school pomade can make ALL the difference.
NEVER grow up!
Just because you grow old doesn't mean you have to get old
A picture is worth 1000 words {or an $800 ER Bill}
If you act cool your dad WILL ruin it for you & enjoy doing it!
Even if something makes you uncomfortable, give it a try.

Enjoy the quiet moments!
Dress for success, a good suit can change everything!
Again, it happens

Music, it heals all wounds

Walk softly & carry a big stick

Chicks dig a slick dude

We all get scared sometimes! Be brave!

Keep calm & play it cool when ever possible

P.S. I lost count & am now not sure that was 31, in fact I'm pretty sure it's not 31. Shut up...it's my birthday! Cut me some slack!
