You really shouldn't eat ALL those cherries...
Quit complaining and fix it.
Don't sell your stuff
Never quit a job without having another one lined up.
Boy howdy, that one really hits home.
You can be right and be unhappy or you can say that you are wrong and be happy.
Some people are just not nice... not even deep, deep down.
You can't go back
Don’t think with the wrong head.
I went through a 10yr stretch chasing different hobbies. Lots of money, lots of time, and nothing to show for it.
I wish I had that time & money back, and/or I wish I would have invested that same time & money into something with more lasting value.
Treat every good-bye as if it were the last one you will have with that person because that may actually be the case.
When I was in college, money was tight, but I always had a few bucks. I was driving home from NC to DC and I stopped for gas. This guy was in a U-haul with his wife an kids and didn't have money for gas and asked me if I could spare a few dollars. I just said no and walked away. That haunts me to this day. I could have filled his truck up and given him money for lunch and it wouldn't have hurt me one bit. I was just a dick.
On the other hand, about 10 years ago I was riding my motorcycle to Florida and stopped at a rest stop. Some woman came up and asked me for gas money. She pointed to her car and there were a couple kids in it. I can't imagine how desperate she was to come up to a big long-haired, bearded biker to ask for money. I gave her $40 (almost all the cash I had) and she almost cried. She said I was the only one that wasn't rude to her. I guess I put a little in my Karma bank, but I've got a lot to make up for.
among many others: don't decide you're going to "quit music" and sell all your gear including that one special guitar. because in about 2 months you'll have to buy everything back, but that special guitar will not come your way again.
Almost every lesson is the hard way for me.
I must enjoy pain.
You'd think I would've learned this the first dozen times.
My mate's favourite saying:

Nothing like mistakes can teach you better.
Have become moderatly wiser since. I was younger.
Had some common sense for starters.
But it needs daily training and reminders.
So I always go like this: you are an idiot, what can you do differently?!
I know. I need to quit making the same mistakes. Time for new mistakes!
