Life Lesson We Learn Too Late

Posted by Lil' Sue at 4/17/2013 10:46:00 AM

Before you know it you’ll be asking, “How did it get so late so
soon?” So take time to figure yourself out. Take time to realize what
you want and need. Take time to take risks. Take time to love,
laugh, cry, learn, and forgive. Life is shorter than it often seems.
Here are some things you need to know, before it’s too late:

1. This moment is your life – Your life is not between the moments
of your birth and death. Your life is between now and your next
breath. The present – the here and now – is all the life you ever
get. So live each moment in full, in kindness and peace, without
fear and regret. And do the best you can with what you have in
this moment; because that is all you can ever expect of anyone,
including yourself.

2. The sacrifices you make today will pay dividends in the
future – When it comes to working hard to achieve a dream –
earning a degree, building a business, or any other personal
achievement that takes time and commitment – one thing you
have to ask yourself is: “Am I willing to live a few years of my
life like many people won’t, so I can spend the rest of my life like
many people can’t?”

3. When you procrastinate, you become a slave to yesterday
But when you are proactive, it’s as if yesterday is a kind friend
that helps take a load off your back. So do something right now
that your future self will thank you for. Trust me, tomorrow you’ll
be happy you started today.

4. You are your most important relationship – Happiness is
when you feel good about yourself without feeling the need for
anyone else’s approval. You must first have a healthy relationship
with yourself before you can have a healthy relationship with
others. You have to feel worthwhile and acceptable in your own
eyes, so that you’ll be able to look confidently into the eyes of the
people around you and connect with them.

5. Small acts of kindness can make the world a better place
Smile at people who look like they are having a rough day. Be
kind to them. Kindness is the only investment that never
fails. And wherever there is a human being, there’s an
opportunity for kindness. Learn to give, even if it’s just a smile,
not because you have too much, but because you understand
there are so many others who feel like they have nothing at all.

6. Behind every beautiful life, there has been some kind of
pain – You fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you live, you
learn. You’re human, not perfect. You’ve been hurt, but you’re
alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think,
to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. Sometimes there is sadness in our journey,
 but there is also lots of beauty. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other 
even when we hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just around the bend.
