Tag Archives: Lessons we learn
Today on social media we do hear a lot of influencers. Lots of people also want to impress others and want to give others a negative feeling about themselves. In this world were there is so much materialism and so many are envious of what others have, we should be careful not to let those negative people influence us.
Let us not forget what Buddha once said,
‘we are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think.‘
Having others imprinting their thought about us on us, they could be le to pull us down in the depths of a negative spiral. Because our thoughts and actions are directly related we should
choose our thoughts wisely
and be aware of each thought that crosses our mind. Sooner or later those same thoughts may transform our whole life.
Binita a qualified teacher, who seems to be on and off jobs looks at life and talks about
She has learned many lessons in her journey so far in life. Most of these lessons she learned from her own mistakes, like most of us do. Though many are afraid to recognise their mistakes or to look at them and learn from them. Benita dares to say she is
not ashamed of any of them. Some I have also learned from bitter experiences of life and a few others from observation.
Have a look at what she put together
the list of 9 best lessons in an effort to help me not just remember but also implement them in life. Hopefully, the list will be of benefit to some of you who are reading this as well.
And look also at
1. What you think, you become!
2. Don’t take life too seriously!
3. Count your blessings!
4. Live in the present!
5. Be self sufficient!
6. Don’t think about other’s opinion of you!
7. Learn to say no!
8. If you want others to accept you, accept yourself first!
9. Listen to your heart!
I truly believe
that everything that we do
and everyone that we meet
is put in our path for a purpose.
There are no accidents;
we’re all teachers
– if we’re willing to pay attention
to the lessons we learn,
trust our positive instincts
and not be afraid to take risks
or wait for some miracle
to come knocking at our door.
