life advice according to keith

January 3, 2012

Happy 2012 readers! I hope this year is great for all. Oh, this is Keith. I should probably mention that. 🙂 I will tell you, and Kelly will too, that she and I are like a yin & yang. She is planned, methodical and type A whereas I am unorganized, spontaneous, and very laid back. I always joke that without me Kelly would never have any fun or break any rules and without her I would never get anything done and would be a total mess. So we work. We work really really well together.

And since it is a new year with new beginnings Kelly wanted me to share my thoughts on life. Since that is probably the most ambiguous topic ever, (really Kelly? My thoughts on life??)  I thought, in line with my personality, to do things a little differently. So here it is, life advice from me, a person who’ve never met and probably never will. (sometimes this blogging thing is really strange to me).

Never Take Yourself Too Seriously

Get a Pet

When You Can, Buy A House (and try to do some of the home repairs yourself!)

Put Good Food Into Your Body 80% of the time.

Find Exercise That You ENJOY Doing!

Be Nice To Your Parents

Say I Love You Often

Kiss and Hug ALOT


Don’t Be Afraid to Look Stupid. (You might miss out on amazing experiences!)

Marry Someone You Can Laugh With

So that’s it. Of course there are many more things I could say but I am not one to go on and on and on. Besides those are some of the more important things. In the end it all comes down to this:

Trust Yourself, Take Risks, Be Thankful and Enjoy Life!

    Great advice.

    Is that Down to Earth store in Maui? If so, we went there at least three times on our honeymoon!

    I love this! I definitely think you two are one of the cutest couples I’ve ever seen. I cannot stop laughing at the scuba gear picture, it reminds me of something me and my boyfriend would do!

    Great post Keith! And honestly, you’d be surprised how many people you meet that you never thought you would – I ran a race on Sunday and there were other bloggers there that I follow, and had no clue they were running with me! Meetups are great!

      Me too…although a Baby Bruneman would be fine with me too! 🙂

    Love this! 🙂

    I try my best at never taking life too seriously. It’s too short…

    Love it. What an amazing post. 🙂

    Such good advice. I love it all. Especially not taking yourself too seriously – I think that’s so important. Life is no fun if you’re serious all the time. I feel like I’m re-learning that right now.
