Today I’m talking about little life lessons. I’m about to turn thirteen April this year. When I write this post it is currently February 22nd. Today I thought long and hard about what I want to post next. I thought of a book review, but nah. Those are for another time. I did, however, come up with 7 little life lessons that you can say I learnt in 7 years. I was inspired to do this when I saw Mila’s post on 18 Things I Learnt in 18 Years. Also, a lot of these are lifted off from her blog, just because some of the little life lessons she mentioned are also little life lessons I’ve learnt over the years.
SEVEN LITTLE LIFE LESSONS
AT 5 YEARS OF AGE
Humans are not all bad. Some of them are good. Even those that are bad, there is some part of them that is good. So one thing doesn’t define a person, doesn’t define if they are good or bad. It’s everything in them, not just the bad or the good part of their body – but it is both parts that define them.
AT 6 YEARS OF AGE
Be positive ALL THE TIME. If you keep thinking about the bad, everything will be bad. Focus on the good, the pros. Find the light in the dark. The flower in the thorns. Find the good in the bad. Take everything positively.
AT 7 YEARS OF AGE
Being wrong isn’t a sin. I know you’ve heard this but people make mistakes and learn from them. Because once you make a mistake, you won’t repeat it. I speak from experience, trust me. And besides messing up and then laughing at yourself is fun.
AT 8 YEARS OF AGE
There’s people out there, who are like you, who you can talk to and relate to. Those people can be found on a thing called the World Wide Web. But if you can’t find them, you can find yourself.
AT 9 YEARS OF AGE
Saying no is not a bad thing. Sometime, you need to say no. When something doesn’t bring you happiness, you don’t have to say yes just to keep another’s heart. Though it’s a good thing, it’s not a bad thing to sometimes say no either.
AT 1O YEARS OF AGE
It doesn’t matter what people say or think about you. It’s not important that they talk crap about you behind your back. They’re behind for a reason.
AT 11 YEARS OF AGE
Apologise when you can. Don’t let your pride or arrogance cloud your actions. Because if you don’t, and you let’s yourself consume you, it might be too late.
And that’s it. That’s seven things I learnt in seven years of living. I hope you got some resolution ideas from this post. As usual, thanks for reading, I’ll see you next time. Bye!
