Lessons for Life - Sharing Life's Greatest Lessons

What are the three things you wish you knew when you were younger?

Ellen, 40, Drummer, Venice Beach, CA

  1. You can never make people feel the way you want them to. Love your life and your friends and whoever stays for the ride is yours!
  2. You don’t need to know who you’ll be when you grow up. Take your time. The most interesting people I know do things on their own schedule.
  3. First, put yourself in a place where you’ll be happy - a place where you’ll wake up every day and say “Yep, another day in paradise.” Then, PLAY FOR KEEPS. Take your time meeting people and you will have love around you for the rest of your life. Laugh and be light!

  1. High school doesn’t influence the rest of your life - it gets better!
  2. Everything I need I can find within myself. I don’t need to look to other people for approval or acceptance.
  3. There isn’t a certain age when suddenly you’re a capable adult and have everything figured out. The excitement of life is not knowing, because it’s a constant journey of discovery.
