50 Things I have learned in 50 years – Day 37

There is less than a month until I turn 50. As we enter December and my 50th birthday looms like the shiny lights all over my house, I feel even more compelled to share what I have learned. Sure, some lessons have been better than others but lessons learned nonetheless.

I know you’re thinking, ‘Did you learn anything about life and stuff?’ Which brings me to #37

Niño que no llora, no mama.

The baby that doesn’t cry doesn’t eat.

Look, if you don’t ever ask for what you want how will you ever get it? You don’t have to cry (unless you want to) but you need to say what you want. You can sit there and hope that someone asks you to dance or get up and ask someone yourself. If you want to dance, make it happen.

So, go dance. If you want. I’m dancing with or without you.

Come back for the next 13 days and see what else I have learned.
