It dawned on me with last week’s blog post that I just kinda faded off on the tenth lesson for life without really providing a wrap up. But thankfully, I remain teachable and used that “oopsy” to instead provide you one last bonus value. There might be a hint as to what that is in the sentence above…
There are so, so many lessons we learn in our lives. When I started down this “10 Essential Lessons for Life” rant, I had no idea how deep it would go or even what I would pull for every lesson. Honestly, there are so many more than just ten. I wanted to pull insights, however into some critical components here. Possibly so great that I need a printable for you:
“There are no mistakes in life, only lessons to be learned.” Robin Sharma
On this blog series journey, I shared with you not just what we want to teach our children, but how our openness to their own brilliant minds has allowed us to connect in a deeper way. When I look at my daughters, it’s not just me running the ship and telling them how to live and think. It’s a two-way street of learning, and I offer them respect and humility as we walk through this together. I may be a guide, but I never, ever want to be above learning.
Always, always remain teachable.
“When you talk, you are merely repeating back what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new.” (Dalai Lama)
I hope you’ve enjoyed these life lessons. What other lessons can you add that you’ve learned through experience? What have your children taught you? Your parents? Your enemies?
Remember, learning has no limits beyond your own mind. Namaste!
