Life teaches us many lessons, sometimes we get it, sometimes we don’t. The times we don’t, that’s when the lesson is taught over and over again, getting more and more difficult each time with hopes that we learn from our mistakes and move on to the next task. I read interesting quotes somewhere that read “if we fail to learn what life is trying to teach us. Then, we are no more.”

Here’s some of what I’ve learned……
1. Life isn’t always easy, but you either roll with it or get rolled over

2. Love is a simple thing

3. As long as the sun rises in the morning, there’s a second chance to start over

4. You can be a victim or a victor, but you can’t be both

5. You may be good at many things, but great at just one thing

6. We become our parents

7. You gotta believe in something, if you believe in nothing then nothing will ever exist for you

8. We can’t change a person, we can only change ourselves

9. Everything my grandmother told me about life was true, I was just too young to understand

10. What goes up, doesn’t always comes down, sometimes it gets stuck to the ceiling

11. Smoking weed is only bad for you because Society says it is

12. Children will suck the life out of you if you let them

13. Pigs may not be able to fly, but they can swim

14. It doesn’t matter your circumstance, you can rise above it

15. Someone’s perception of you doesn’t define you

16. Some people simply can’t see past the forest for the trees

17. Walking away is sometimes the hardest, but more often than not, the best thing to do

18. A College degree doesn’t guarantee success

19. If you can quiet your minds to the point of hearing your own heartbeat, anything is possible

20. Revenge is not a dish cold, it’s a dish that shouldn’t be served at all

21. Procrastination will be the death of us all if we let it

22. Everything in the world was once a simple thought, start dreaming

23. You don’t get out of life alive, live your life to the fullest

24. Never give up on life, because life doesn’t give up on us
