“If there’s a single lesson that life teaches us, it’s that wishing doesn’t make it so.”
Lev Grossman

I suppose “life lessons” are called that for a reason. You need to experience life in order to learn the lessons. And the more life you experience, the more lessons you accumulate. However, some extremely valuable lessons came from other people, blogs and books read as well as from friends and family.

.

Here are some things I have learnt over the years;

.
We keeping waiting for that amazing thing to happen in the future that will be the key to our happiness. But this is it. Right now. Life continues to be a series of right nows. Begin to learn to love right now, and you will experience a more amazing life.

.
Most of the things we fear never happen. Or if they do happen, they are rarely as bad as we fear they will be. For most of us, fear is the worst thing that will happen to us. Reality is not as painful.

.
Exercise is power. Exercise needs to be be a daily priority for everyone. It makes you physically, mentally, and emotionally stronger. It improves your health and your outlook. It is wonder drug for improving your prospective on life.

.
It is not the big wins, the great accomplishments, or the status in life that really count. It’s the accumulation of little things – the quiet moments in nature, special time with our children, seeing the smile on a friend’s face. Appreciate the small things more.

.
To build a better life we simply need the curiosity and desire for self-awareness and personal growth. Once we learn the lessons, we can apply them in our life at any age and see the benefits to our happiness and well-being.

.
Life is available only in the present. That is why we should walk in such a way that every step can bring us to the here and the now.”
Thich Nhat Hanh
