3 unusual life lessons I have learned so far!

Life is wonderful, until it’s not , When it’s not we must seek inspiration.
In the time I have spent on earth I can say I have learned quite a few invaluable life lessons and made some wonderful memories. I have also gained a fair amount of experience and come to learn that while life is transient and evolving some things are unchanging and absolute.

We all have a few scars to show for our sojourn through life, and we must have learned so many valuable life lessons, but here are 3 very unusual life lessons I have learned so far.
They may resonate with you or seem totally out-of-place but they are certainly worth the read.

1. You are your choices!

Your Life is made up of the choices you make, so choose wisely!
Big choices, small choices and even the seemingly inconsequential ones that we make every second are all crucial to the eventual outcome of our lives. Whether you choose to read a chapter of a book everyday or to sit and scroll through your Facebook timeline all day long, wether you choose to start pursuing your goals today with the limited resources available to you or you choose to sit and wait for a miracle job to land on your lap! Every choice you make is important and would play a part in determining how your life is going to go! What choices are you making today?

2. People cannot really understand what they do not experience

Us Humans no matter how understanding or empathetic we may be can never truly grasp or appreciate the depth of certain things unless we also experience it. This is why support groups are really helpful for people going through certain mental or physical difficulties,because only a person who has walked the road can truly understand the way it bends.

No matter how informed or educated on the subject of pregnancy and delivery, a person who has never  experienced conception and birth would never truly understand the intricacies and emotions involved, no matter how empathetic they may be. People who have never struggled with their weight may never know what it feels like to eat a spoon of rice and gain 10 pounds(lol). A person who has never experienced a certain illness or disease would never truly know the emotional and physical difficulties sufferers go through. Sadly this still doesn’t deter people from offering their expert opinions.


3. You are responsible for the outcome of your life

Oh the sweet “blame deflection” there is always enough blame to go around, and it is  always so convenient to point accusing fingers at others,the government or even the universe at large(sometimes rightly so) but in the end we must all accept that despite limitations, obstacles and barriers, we ultimately are the architects of the outcome of our lives. Your reaction to an issue is more important than the issue, as the reaction would determine how that issue progresses.

Even the most religious people at some point come to the realization that there are certain decisions that must be taken by us. The ultimate power of consent or non consent may not always lie with us but our reaction to even the most unpredictable and out of hand situations is often the real decider of the final outcome.

There are so many invaluable life lessons  but these 3 are invaluable and quite unusual..
