Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2008.
If there is something you want to do or try, do it. You don't want to look back on your life when your old and regret not getting on that bull! - Leaving that one from last year as I still agree with it, but adding... Don't ever be afraid to put yourself out there, how else would you ever know you were capable!

Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.
