Friday Fifty on Tuesday

This past Friday I posted my first Friday Five, a new weekly series. What better way to start than with 5 thoughts on how to live a better life?

1. Follow your gut. Always.
2. If it seems too good to be true, it is.
3. Put in the work.
4. It is okay to say no.
5. Always be authentic. Always

All you wonderful people added your own thoughts to the list in the blog comments and on Facebook. Totally printable and absolutely helpful on one of "those" days, here is my updated list of the Friday Fifty, including your additions.
