Live Learn and Grow

Oct 2nd 2014 at 11:30 AM

Gandhi once said, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow.  Learn as if you were to live forever.” 
I love this quote.  There’s no doubt that every day is a gift, and the gift is an opportunity
to live, to learn, and to grow.

Be a student of life.  Indulge in it and absorb all the knowledge you can, while you can. 
You may have to loose some things to gain some things, and you may have to learn some things the hard way. That’s OK.  All experiences are necessary.  The purpose of your life is to live it in full, to partake in it to the utmost, to reach out with an open mind and an honest heart for the newest and richest experience being offered.

“People never learn anything by being told,
they have to find out for themselves.”
―Paulo Coelho

The 7 Important Life Lessons I've Learned the Hard Way


1.  The people you lose remain a part of you.
You never really stop missing someone special who’s gone, They will live on in the warmth of your broken heart that doesn’t fully heal back up, and you will continue to grow and experience life,
even with your wound.


2.  The pursuit of happiness is about finding meaning.
The pursuit isn’t all or nothing; it’s all AND nothing, with ups and downs and worthwhile lessons along the way. In other words, happiness comes most easily when you know what you’re doing, believe in what you’re doing, and love what you’re doing (and who you’re doing it with), regardless of how things turn out.


3.  Seeking validation from others invalidates YOU.
The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.  Prove yourself to yourself, not others. You are GOOD enough, SMART enough, FINE enough, and STRONG enough.  You don’t need other people to validate you; you are already valuable.  The words and opinions of others have no real bearing on your worth.


4.  Regret hurts far worse than fear.
It’s better to look back on life and say, “I can’t believe I did that,” than to look back and say, “I wish I did that.”

5.  Life is too unpredictable for rigid expectations.
When you stop predicting and expecting things to be a certain way, you can appreciate them for what they are. Ultimately you will realize that life’s greatest gifts are rarely wrapped the way you expected.


6.  When you try to run away, you end up running in place.
Running away from your problems is a race you’ll never win.  Move TOWARDS something instead of AWAY. Rather than trying to eliminate the negative, focus on creating something positive that just happens to replace the negative.


7.  Unanticipated hardships are inevitable and helpful.
Nobody in this world is going to blindside you and hit you as hard as life will. 
Learn what you can, laugh often, live for the moments, and know that it’s all worthwhile in the end.
