    What has life taught you?

    Hi Collegenet,

    Happy Friday :)

    My question for you all today is:

    What has life taught you?

    Life has taught me to always be patient because great things don't come overnight but takes time to get to where I am. Rushing will only make things worse and I won't be happy with the end results if I decided to rush everything in my life. I also learn to never give up but trust in God. Believe that I am able to do many things through Christ who strengthen me.

    How about you guys? What are some lessons that life taught you?

    -Thanks for reading my forum and have a great day!

    Unique,

    I have gone on a journey, that I do not wish on anyone. I have seen, the good and bad of both human nature. I have also learned a few things about myself. I am no longer the same person, I was about 2 years ago when I left the military. Every day is a new day and I am learning new things. The main thing that I have taken from my experience, is that we have to learn to live life in the present moment. The past is the past, as painful as it might have been. The future is still not written. Why create anxiety? I live in the moment now. while ensuring that what I am doing now will help me in the future. Live life and be happy.

    Hey Unique!

    Thank you for sharing some great lessons!

    I needed to read your post on having patience today- I'm 38 weeks pregnant and my patience has been low the past week or so. I'm super anxious to meet my baby, but like you said everything will come at the right time, and as Oscar wrote above it's important to stay in the moment and enjoy every moment, and trust that everything will come at the right time.

    I've learned to try to live without expectations. The more expectations you have, the more you're disappointed. Many times, the expectations that we have are all ego based anyway, and we think we want things that we really don't. We can't control how other people act, we can only control how we act and what we are responsible. As I'm learning to live with less expectations, I have less stress, more authentic friendships and relationships, and more happiness.

    Thanks for a great post! Have a great weekend!
