There is the type of
education we get in school and there are life lessons we learn along the way. Both are important. The only problem is that life moves us far along before we figure out what's going on and the wisdom we hope to have gained is sometimes late in coming.
Lesson 7: Life is a
marathon, not a race. This lesson may sound cliché, but most of us try to sprint through life whether we realize it or not. Concentrate on fulfilling your own personal goals in the timeline that is right for you.
Lesson 8: Learn to enjoy
the whole process. We can become so focused on the end result, that we miss the little miracles that happen along the way.
Lesson 9: Nurture your relationships.
At the end of your life you’re never going to say, “I wish I’d spent more time working.” But you will say, “I wish I told them that I love them more often.”
Lesson 11: Treat others as
you wish to be treated. Never do something to someone else that you would not want done to someone you love or yourself.
Lesson 12: Make friends with
yourself. Treat yourself like you would treat someone you cherish. We spend far too much time being our own worst enemies.
