What Has Life Taught You?
Maya Angelou is renowned for her wise words - here she shares some of the things she has learned ~
"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.
I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.
I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life."
I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.
I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.
I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.
I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.
I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.
I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
Life teaches us many things ~ some are easier lessons than others. One thing that I have learnt in life is that it is always my choice how I word my thoughts, how I word my lessons, how I choose to interpret every single thing I experience in life.
The freedom to chose the language we use in our mind is one of the greatest gifts life has given each of us. The pictures that we paint with our words have a knock on effect in every area of our life :)
So out of interest how do you handle these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights?
In Gratitude and Wishing you a Wonderful Day :)
