I won’t lie. I’ve only been on this planet for twelve years. I can’t say that I know every single little thing there is to know about life. But however you like to think of it, no matter how many years you’ve been on this Earth, you’re going to learn something- and loads of these things will be life lessons. I decided that today would be a good day to get all ‘deep and meaningful’ and to reflect on the lessons that I’ve taken away from life- so far.
SCIENCE PRAC REPORTS SUCK. I know that isn’t exactly ‘Nobel Peace Prize’ material- but it’s important information. PRAC REPORTS SUCK. Okay, we’re clear on that. Let’s move on.
NOTHING LASTS FOREVER. Remember how sad you were when you were eight and didn’t win the stuffed bunny at the school fete? (Holy moly it rhymes.) You got over that. It didn’t last forever. Hopefully. So, the friendship problems you’re having right now or the sadness of your dog dying- that won’t last forever. Just as how the joy you felt when winning the talent contest went away- eventually. And, yes, unfortunately, a chocolate bar won’t last forever either. Oh what a heartless world we live in. The moral? Keep the happy times and memories close to you, and remember that the sadness will go away.
IF SOMEONE’S GOING TO THROW YOU TO THE WOLVES, THEN YOU MUST COME BACK TO THAT PERSON LEADER OF THE PACK. What do I mean by this? I mean that you need to recognise the amazing traits you have and use them to TAKE OVER THE WORLD. Okay, maybe don’t go that far but if something bad happens to you, use it to your advantage. Learn something new. Show the world that you KICK BUTT.
YOU’RE IN CHARGE OF WHAT LIFE DOES TO YOU. You can’t control what happens in life, but you are in control of what it does to you. You can take anything that feels negative and just turn it into a positive lesson. With this kind of attitude, your life would actually be #goals. No lie. Keep this close at heart and you’ll go all the way with a smile.
DO ONE OF THESE THINGS EVERY DAY: Compliment someone random if you think they look/are cool, come up with a crazy idea, take the step you were always too scared to take, re-arrange everything into something better- physically or mentally, or let everyone have the blessing of you being completely and utterly you. When you do this, you instantly feel awesome and it’s a pretty awesome habit and trait to have. Live life a little more and take whatever you are given. It’s yours to cherish.
MY BIGGEST PIECE OF ADVICE THAT I WILL NEVER, EVER FORGET- YOU ARE NEVER ALONE. Notice how I made the ‘never’ really noticeable? Take the hint. I mean NEVER. EVER. I think you get the point by now. No matter what you want to say, no matter how bad you think things are, you are absolutely, never, ever alone. There is always someone you can talk to. There is always someone who cares. There is always someone who loves you and will listen. ALWAYS.
Do you have any life lessons that you will always keep close at heart?
