> Good Read: '45 Lessons Life Taught Me'

You may have seen this list floating around on the internet before. There is a misconception that it was written by a 90-year old.. After some research we can confirm that this is not true. The list was compiled by Regina Brett who is even still fit enough to be on Twitter! That is because she is only in her 50's. If you want to know what else she has been up to, click here to go to her website. But now, let's get to it:
