September 25th - learn as you go

Some things cannot be taught; they must be experienced.  You never learn the most valuable lessons in life until you go through your own journey.

Roy T. Bennett

I fully agree that experience is the best teacher, when we do something over and over it becomes well known.  Just like practicing our handwriting when we young.  We had to do it over and over again until we got it right.  

There are many lessons to be learned from what we experience in life.  Life is a continuing learning experience .  No matter how much we learn from reading books there is a difference between the proctical and theoretical experience.

Ive learned to never let somone elses goals and dreams influence my own vision of life.  Its your own path and you decide where it takes you.  Ive also learned to Seize the day.  More often than not, if we fail to act due to a lack of confidence or courage, then well regret it.  Hesitation keeps us from moving forward and makes us wonder what might have been later on.  

Ive learned that good things dont come easy.  Its up to each one of us how much effort we put into every day.  No one is going to fight your battles for you.  We each have to do that on our own.

We should never fail to try more.   A lot can be done if we only try.  We dont want to put limits on what we can or cannot do.  We won’t know what we can do until we give it a try.

One of the most valuable lessons Ive learned is to make every moment count.  Time goes by so fast. You think youll be young forever, and then all the sudden youre not.  Live your life to the fullest extent because life is short and we never know what tomorrow will bring.

Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.

Oscar Wilde

Experience is the best teacher.

So true, Ma. We think we are going to be young forever and one day we wake up and realize we aren't and that it went by way too fast! I like your motto to seize the day! Its a good way to approach all the days we are given to live!

So true! I still don't believe it's me when I look in the mirror. The time has just flown by!

Again, I'm reminded of what our friend Rick once penned: "Every day is a school day."
Sure, when I look in the mirror I regret not having taken better care of my skin years ago. But. Like Frank sang, "Regrets? I've had a few; but then again, too few to mention." Seize the day!

A life lesson we all should learn, and pay attention.
