Life Lessons and Wisdom

We all learn something new everyday, right? Whether it be in the workplace, at school, at a friend’s house, or in the comfort of our own home: we all learn something new every day.

Aside from the obvious fact, I wonder, how often do we take the time to reflect on all the things we’ve learned, and spread the word to our peers? Sort of like…spreading the knowledge. Giving others the 4-1-1 on stuff we each personally find important. I know we all think about our lessons, but do we talk about them enough?

We all hold wisdom; and this is true for absolutely every single person on this planet. It doesn’t matter how old you are. The idea is that we all experience the same life, but with different eyes…a different mind…and a different soul. We all take different paths but see, it doesn’t matter which path we are on- it doesn’t matter how we differentiate a good path from a bad path. We are all still faced with challenges, and obstacles; opportunities and freedom. And guess what? We gain wisdom from it! Along our life path, we take what we have learned , or experienced, and create a perception in our mind of a lesson learned. It doesn’t have to stand true– it is purely on the basis of what you believe is true about your own particular circumstance.

I want us all to share something we have learned so far in this life. Take the first lesson that pops up in your head and put it into words. Share it! I am curious to know what other people find important β™₯

I want to share with you just nine lessons I have experienced so far:

1) Avoid taking advantage of your health
Notice I said avoid? Some of us, like myself, enjoy a puff of tobacco every now and again, or maybe a shot of vodka. But the lesson is, don’t over do it. Breath in and breath out. Appreciate your good health while you can.

2) Take your studies seriously
Knowledge is power. You never lose anything each time you decide to read a book. Education is also very powerful. You may lose a few hundred bucks; but it’s worth every penny. And if you’re smart…you will use your knowledge and education and make money with it.

3) Never ever overwork yourself
Always take a lunch break. Take a break. Don’t overwork yourself. Will it really matter how hard you worked when you’re retired? You’re still going to retire. You’re still going to get to that point in your life when you won’t have to work anymore, so don’t stress yourself out. I know it gets stressful–I work in an office– but always take a break.

4) Appreciate your family
ClichΓ© isn’t it? Can’t say this enough though…appreciate every moment with your family. Blood related; or not.

5) Always take pictures
You won’t regret it when you’re older.

6) Take care of yourself.
We only have one face, one body, one image. Take care of it.

7) Take note of good memories
You will cherish it in the future. Write a quick note and stash it away.

8) Be original
This may sound a little uninspiring but think about it like this- don’t live your life trying to impress anyone. Follow your heart wherever it takes you and don’t ever second guess your mind. It’s one thing to second guess what flavor of ice cream you want, but be mindful that the people you surround yourself with have the tendency to influence your originality. 

9) Choose your friends wisely
If you want an idea of where you’re going in life, take a look at your friends. Those aren’t my words by the way, I saw that on the internet somewhere. I believe it is so so so important to chose your friends wisely. These people are the ones who know you best. Theoretically, they are supposed to be supportive, inspiring and good-natured toward you. If they aren’t…it’s time to reevaluate what they’re good for.

    1. Thank you so much! I put a lot of effort into my blog. I can’t wait to look back on it 10-20 years from now.
      Your life lesson is good to know. I believe in Karma. What goes around comes around, that’s for sure!

      1. You’re welcome. Your effort is definitely seen, and you can be proud on yourself even right now πŸ™‚ Honestly, I’m curious too because I can see the difference already now, almost after a year. But 10 or 20 years later – that is insane πŸ™‚ I don’t know what will be tomorrow πŸ˜€ Nonetheless, good luck, and I hope all your dreams will come true.

      2. Hahahah yeah 10-20 years is a long time isn’t it! But, think about it. What were you doing 10 years ago?? I remember what I was doing…and it just seemed to fly right on by. The next 10 years will be here in no time, sadly. Thanks again!

      3. It definitely is πŸ™‚ but it’s an interesting idea and personally, it encourages me when I’m sad or depressed. But you’re right. 10 years will be here soon. I don’t know about you but I’m scared and excited at the same. The life is always full of surprises πŸ™‚ Have a nice day πŸ™‚

    1. Very nice! I agree with that. We shouldn’t try to impress others. Especially in our later years. It’s one thing to be somebody we aren’t when we’re younger, but we should be growing out of that “stage” as we grow older. Thanks for sharing!

      1. A few of the lessons I’ve learnt are definitely to be original and to choose my friends wisely! I’ve spent most of my time doing what others want me to do, and doing things just because it’s what most people are doing. I’ve found out that now I don’t really have much of an idea of who I am, so I’m trying to do things the way I want to and mainly trying to be more confident in this “epic quest” called life. As for choosing my friends wisely… at school, everyone picks their friend in their very first year, and they form their own groups and don’t really interact much with anyone else, especially with people they don’t really care much for. I made the mistake of letting someone latch onto me, and that someone jeers at near to everything I do. Sometimes I’m just so tired of all of it (maybe a minor reason why I obsess in books, movies and such), but there are many other sources of happiness in life, and this, I feel is important.

        (Sorry for such a long comment!)

      2. Thank you so much for sharing. I understand the challenge with figuring yourself out. It doesn’t come easy and it takes time. It takes years to figure out who you are. You seem like you have creative talents. You’re good at identifying what you know isn’t aligning with who you are. I noticed you mentioned your friends. That’s a good place to start. Your lesson learned is definitely a start to finding your happiness. You’re right, there are hundreds of sources. The challenge is finding it, but we all eventually do; even if its temporary happiness. We all eventually find it. Thanks again for sharing! It isn’t a long comment, it is a detailed comment. I appreciate it.

      3. Thank you too! I find it’s more easier for me, even if just a but, now I’ve shared this. I guess in life, we just keep trying and doing the best we can, and not to give up.

    1. I know I noticed that our blogs are similar too. I try so hard to find others who post stuff I can relate to. Thanks for sharing your lesson! We shouldn’t let jealousy or anger override the kindness within us. πŸ¦‹

  3. A lesson I’ve learned is “Not all people that come into your life should be trusted.” I don’t know how many times I’ve opened up to somebody who came into my life and they completely screwed me over. Slowly, I’ve learned not to open up to all my friends, only 2 of them will ever know everything. Everybody else can’t be trusted.

    1. Girl… yes. Thank you for sharing. It’s so true! It happens to the best of us. We all experience heartbreak and low self esteem and the sad part is, it’s because of our friends! Or…other people closest to us. I am also very cautious of who I spend time with and who I open up too. You’re absolutely right and I don’t blame you. Thank you for sharing your lesson!
