Life Lessons from the 80's

I love Huffington Post and all of the wisdom it brings to my day. Today's gem of a post comes to you in the form of the brilliancy of a few 80's cult classics. I pride myself on being a child of the 80's and found this article to be 100% relatable and true.

Give it a quick read. I bet you won't regret it for one minute. Who knew all of those hours spent with ET, Duckie, Molly Ringwald and the Goonies clan would prove to be some of the best life lessons a little girl with hair sprayed, crunchy "mall" bangs could find?

And if I could add a few more, they'd be that:

Money Can't Buy You Love. It might for a moment, but it won't be real, true love until you let your guard down and see if it happens on its own. It CAN buy you bacon McGriddles from McDonald's, which feels a whole lot like love, but it won't buy you the real stuff. Wait for the real stuff. It'll happen when the time is right. 

You should never underestimate a group of determine girls based on their outward appearance or background. If given a challenge, they can do anything they put their minds to especially in times of crisis, all the while looking fabulous as they go. Just ask the Wilderness Girls from Troop Beverly Hills. And when the chips are down, that's when you dig in even deeper and rely on those around you. We're all in this together in the end.

Sometimes you have to stand up and fight the bad guys, even when you're the underdog. Spend hours practicing how to fight fair even if you know your opponents will most likely rely on the cheap shots. You'll come out stronger in the end, although bruised and a little worse for the wear, but good always trumps evil if we're prepared and ready for it, Daniel son.

Enjoy, fellow 80's lovers!
