I am 32 years old and, although still young, have lived a lot in my years. When I was younger, I had a utopian ideal about life and learned many lessons the hard way. I would not trade any of it, for it has made me who I am today. However, if I could go back and tell my younger self anything, these are the “Life Lessons that Nobody Teaches You” that I would pass on.
Be present. Enjoy the moment. We waste far too much time on the past and the future. There truly is only this exact second. Learn to truly appreciate every bit of it - the smells, the sights, the sounds and the people who are with you in it. This is a true gift once achieved.
Through our weakest moments and our saddest times in life, we grow unimaginable inner strength. It is not those who do not cry or struggle who have true strength, but those who fall down and make the decision to rise again who learn the true meaning of courage and strength. No matter how many times we fall, we must always get back up again. It is in this decision to rise that we find our inner power.
Failure is inevitable, especially if we are to succeed. This is a lesson that we are often never told—especially in today’s world, where everyone tries to be “fair.” The truth is, you will fail many times and at most things you do. You will fail at work, love and life, but through that failure you will learn what you want, who you are, what you deserve. Subsequently, that failure leads to success, because you will grow into exactly who and what you are meant to be.
This is one lesson I believe in to the core of my being. If we set our hearts and minds on something, it is attainable. Too many times we hold ourselves back with the “what ifs” and “can nots.” ANYTHING is possible. Never take no for an answer and never make excuses. There is always a way: We just have to find it and make our dreams and decisions for our life happen.
This may seem contradictory, but the fact remains: I have lived 32 years and I have no regrets—though I have made many regrettable decisions. I now try to live my life more wisely. Taking better care of myself, and thinking before I act—yet at times being spontaneous: Live life to the fullest, but always be aware of the consequences. We only live once, this is true, but there are others who we live for, besides ourselves. So be carefree, dance in the rain, sing at the top of your lungs, love without abandon and run wild and free. But take care that the decisions you make today are the same decisions you would make ten years from now.
Life is filled with “The Big Things” such as divorce, marriage, death, birth and work. But the beauty is in the “in-between,” as well as in the big. The beauty lies in seeing the stars at night, taking time each day to remember why you fell in love, the buzzing of the bees, the laughter of your children, the sparkling of the sun on water and the feel of a loved one’s touch. Take time off from your busy schedule so you can relax, even if for 10 minutes a day or one week a year, to truly breathe in all of the world’s wonders. This is truly a lesson needed for our survival.
Too much of our lives is spent stressing about money. Where it will come from, how we will spend it—it dominates and stresses our entire being and society. It is an essential element to our survival but in order to survive we must remove its power. In order to do that, the key is to remember the rest of these lessons, such as number 8…
Through my life, I have had great tragedies occur and now, looking back, I see that the tide always turned. With faith in a new day, that something new was just around the corner and that all would be alright in one way or another, I survived and ultimately conquered. There is no point in worrying or stressing about our situation, for it just wastes energy and gets us nowhere. Have faith that something will happen and, if there is something you can do to change your situation now, take action. Otherwise, learn the power of surrender and have trust that tomorrow the sun will rise on a brand new day.
This has been said before but it’s a saying that deserves repeating. Learn to love yourself, truly, madly and deeply. You are a perfect creation just as you are. Stop dieting, criticizing and obsessing about yourself. Start praising and loving yourself, and being your best friend—even if you have to fake it at first. Your mind listens to your own voice the most. Walk with confidence, take care of yourself, say nice things about yourself and you will start to love yourself. Then and only then will you truly be able to love another the way they deserve and be loved by another the way you deserve.
We cannot control what others think about us and the most important factor is what we think of ourselves. With self-confidence you will care less and less. No one can control you and you cannot control others. Free yourself from this self-inflicted prison. The relief you will feel is untouchable and undeniable. These Life Lessons that Nobody Tells You are ones that I’m sure you will read and possibly ignore, because let’s face it, that’s what we do. We must live life to learn life. But hopefully some of this has sunk in and you can walk around today a little taller and possibly a little more confident in who you are as a person!
