Lessons in life

There's a bloghop that I've seen around the traps called Wordless Wednesday. I haven't participated in this one, I do one or two hops, but find I just don't have the time to give all the contributors the courtesy of visiting them and making comments, hence I only participate in one or two.

The reason I mentioned this hop is because tonight I had a complete mental block on what I wanted to write, I was wordless and it was Wednesday and a wordless Fi is a very rare event in my household and something that my family will attest to. I have opinions and I'm usually not afraid to share them. My lack of words (despite the lines of writing here) is the result of total exhaustion and a mind that needs a rest.

So I thought about what I wanted to share with you and figured that some of life's lessons might be a nice share when my brain is too tired to think. My life is all about learning, about growing and becoming a better me, so here are some thoughts for you to ponder.

I have learned:
  • That it’s hard to determine where to draw the line between being nice and not hurting people’s feelings, and standing up for what you believe.
  • That it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you also have to learn to forgive yourself.
  • That you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be a person who can be loved. The rest is up to them
  • That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.
  • That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
  • That it’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.
  • That it’s not what you have in your life but who you have in your life that counts
  • That people will forget what you said, and people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
I found this share on this website. There's some great inspirational and moral stories, if you want to check them out.

Now I'm off to rest my tired and weary brain.

Cheers, Fi

Life is never going to be perfect and you need to realize that. People you thought you knew are going to turn into strangers. The one you thought you loved may be the person you hate the most someday. You’re going to be happy and you’re going to fall. You need to know life isn’t perfect and that’s what makes it best of all. Live your life for today and don’t forget to believe in yourself.


  1. Wow -- this list is brilliant Fi. Well done -- really brilliant!
