The saying “the more you live, the more you learn” is so true in every sense. There are some things you just have to experience in order to fully comprehend;with these experiences, no matter how hard they may be, they all serve there purpose. I may also add that some experiences are quite fascinating and the ride is so much better when these experiences allow you laugh so hard or fill your heart with joy.
life has taught me :
1.Nothing last forever- no matter the situation you face, whether is quite challenging or depicts joy and laughter, they are all momentary and should therefore be embrace. Challenging situations make us stronger, they build us as a person, allow us to know that we can withstand challenging time and that temporary situation will never determine who you are. The happy times you share with family or friends should never be taken for granted. These are moments that may come around once in a lifetime and should therefore be cherish. Nothing last forever; we may go through certain situations for a long or short period but however you look it at, or how last it last, it never last forever.
2.There are much more good than evil in this world;evil things are always highlighted because it seems flashy and everyone wants to talk about it and with the use of social media , images and messages are easily broadcast but that does not mean that there are not tonnes of good being done. There are families out there fighting to save each other, doing everything they can to help their families and those in their surrounding. There are organizations out there helping families to empower themselves, spending millions to allow the less fortunate to stay in school or doing what they can to help communities together.
3. An education/qualification in a programme or degree does not guarantee a job in that field; I for one can attest to that. There are so many persons out there working in a field that does not match their qualification however, they are doing have they have to stay employed during these challenging times.
4.Supporting others will not dim your light or take away from who you are or what you will accomplish in life. Helping others show how supportive and humane you are. It also gives you the drive to work harder so you can help others.
5.You owe it to yourself to love yourself unconditionally. Everyone is fighting for themselves, love who you are,sometimes it may take a while but accepting who you are is the first step in self love.
6. It is essentially important to take a break. I call this the reset period. Take a moment from your busy schedule and relax; this may mean spending sometime by yourself doing something you love or just hanging out with friends or loves. Resetting allows you to appreciate you, evaluate your situation and start afresh .
These are just a few, i might do a part two situations that are more difficult but until then love yourself and stay safe.
