Things I’ve Learned in Life!
I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.
I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life”.
I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.
I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.
I’ve learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you. But if you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others, your work and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.
I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.
I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I do not have to be one.
I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love that human touch – holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.
R and R Sunday
Since I've returned from our family vacation there has been much rest and relaxation here around my house. I needed a vacation from my vacation it seems. I know that I have had put the THINGS I'VE LEARNED IN LIFE in at least one of my previous entries in this journal but I guess I needed a reminder so I put them there for you to see again today.
My whole life has been full of lessons and I'm still learning something new every day. One thing I learned this week was about Maslow's List. I'd never heard of it before and saw a reference to it on a friends blog. So I checked it out.
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is an important psychological theory orginated by the American psychologist Abraham Maslow. Ref: A Theory of Human Motivation. In general, values reflect one's judgment and helps sort out what is important in life. Maslow described what he considered important values that defined one's Being.
SUNDAY RESOLUTION: Remember the most important task God has for us today may not be on our to do list
