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 ♥
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
Cliché 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.
