If God is not in the forefront... 


we don't need to take another step.

God is the wisest and Greatest.


God's majesty defies 


comprehension and explanation. 


God's majesty is incomprehensible.

We will be challenged and tested throughout our lives. 

Our courage, strength, integrity, and faith will

 be tested along the way. Life does not ask us 

what we want. Every day, life presents us with a

 new page filled with new opportunities, challenges,

 and acts of kindness to emulate.

Formal education broadens, sharpens, 


encouraging the development of alternative


 skills, and stimulates the intellect. It is a 


source of information that enables us to 


learn in a structured manner.



Learning theories through formal education 


is important, but experience... learning to have 


courage in the face of adversity, understanding


 the positive aspects of aging, realizing and


 making time for what is important, and


remaining curious can be a profoundly fierce 


teacher.

Some of life's most difficult and 

darkest times can teach us the 

most valuable life lessons.

Lifelong learning is essential 


for healthy aging! 

Life lessons are those times in our lives


 that are the most challenging; yet, they hold


 great opportunities for learning and for 


realizing our fullest potentials. The lessons 


can be uncomfortable and even painful at


 times. Some lessons are hard to learn.


They have the ability to stretch and push 


us to our limits... which is a good thing, 


in the long run.

A life lesson is just what it sounds like... lessons


 learned in life. Life lessons are based on the idea 


of learning from our experiences and mistakes.


These lessons could be described as defining 


moments that are remembered. In many ways, 


our life’s purpose is our lesson, and vice-versa.

“Life lessons” are called “Life lessons”

because we encounter and observe a wide variety of 

occurrences in life, daily, that we can heed, study, 

run from, or learn from. 
Life can be a herculean journey comprised of joys,

hardships, hellos, goodbyes, and lessons that can

ultimately lead us to a greater awareness and

understanding of God, ourselves, and the world in 

which we live.
One of the greatest lessons we can learn 

in life is that as long as we live... we still

 have so much we can learn. As a lifelong

 student we are able to push ourselves to learn 

new things, acquire new skills and capabilities. 


We adapt and evolve as we foster the continuous

development and improvement of our knowledge 

and skills. Curious individuals learn whatever 

they want whenever they want... continuously

 digging into topics we find interesting.


So, let us be lifelong learners... and pay 

attention to the lessons that life is constantly 

teaching us.

Once in a while, we can all be aroused, 


triggered, awakened, and taught 


invaluable life lessons, even if they are 


learned through pain, need, or faulty action. 


All life lessons are not


created equal.

Pain can become a great teacher.


There’s a reason that expression exists: 


because it’s TRUE!


God can take a terrible situation and turn 


it into a blessing. The Phoenix can rise from 


its ashes... transformed, strengthened and renewed.


What satan meant for evil... God can turn it into


 a blessing. From darkness springs light. 

The only thing permanent in this world is change. 


Our painful phases can fade away with time. It 


is important to give ourselves time and have the 


patience to wait for the result. Our trials and 


tribulations can actually shape and create the


 blueprint for a much better and meaningful life. 

Much of the worry, regret, heartache, suffering,


and unhappiness in people’s lives is caused by


 an unwillingness to learn from mistakes. Some


 people are notorious for doing the same things


 over and over again... expecting different results. 



If we do not learn from the lessons that


 life is trying to teach us, then, they will be taught to 


us again and again until we do. Much of the suffering 


and unhappiness in people’s lives is caused by an 


unwillingness to learn from mistakes.


It is wise to see the blessing or lesson in 

what could snowball into major stressing. 


To put it simply, life lessons can teach us not


 to make the same mistake twice.

Illnesses, broken relationships, persecution, 


death, grief, betrayal, divorce, 


mistakes, regrets, blues, and financial 


struggles are some of the trials and 


tough times that can inevitably cause us to 


emerge from sleep. 


When all is said and done, we may come to 


realize... there are scores of us, regardless 


of our station in life, who have endured 


many of the same hardships.

We are all prone to making mistakes and


sometimes repeating them. Life can be a


 persistent teacher. No matter how much


 experience we have... there is always 


something new to learn. 



We have come to realize that many of the extremely 

difficult predicaments, we find ourselves in, can push

 us to gain focus and clarity. This focus and clarity can 

play a key role in our overall productivity and

experience of life.


Life lessons are ready to be taught whether we are

 ready for the lessons or not. We can sometimes 

overlook the importance of being a life-long pupil. 

We believe one needs to always remain teachable... 

keeping defenses down and pride in check. 


By viewing our lives from the perspective of being 

lifelong students, we gain a higher consciousness

 for what it really means to live a meaningful life. 

As we live to learn... we truly learn to live.


Life is about how to understand and interpret

 our mistakes and make the best possible use of

 time and resources to make a smarter move, which

 will take us one step closer to our hearts desire.


May we come to realize that mistakes can be 

valuable life lessons that can profoundly change 


our lives... if we learn from them... and take the 


lessons forward.

Life lessons can serve to help us understand 


ourselves better. Many of our lessons learned 


are through the consequences of our actions 


or reactions. Many of our life lessons can help 


us gain insight into how we can be mindful 


of our thoughts, ideas, and reactions to


 situations. This helps us to determine the


 validity of a situation or how much time 


or energy we should be giving to it. 



The importance of learning


 life lessons can not be 


understated.



Life-long learning has repeatedly shown 


the utmost worth. It has continually proven itself to 


be a tremendously beneficial aspect of life 


itself. This is why, with great intentionality, 


we should try to remain teachable and open to 


lessons in everything we do and experience.


Failure is an incredibly 


powerful tool for learning. 

Much of the suffering and unhappiness in 


people’s lives are caused by an unwillingness 


to learn from mistakes. Most of us can agree 


that some of the hard, disappointing, painful,


 and difficult personal experiences we have 


gone through... have become incredibly 


liberating, transformative, valuable life and 


character building lessons we would not


have learned any other way than through 


experience... going via the quiet crucible 


of testing and suffering.


Our life lessons have played a vital role in shaping

 how we think about ourselves, our values, and our 

behaviors.


Our most effective life lessons were painfully

 gained, but they provided us with experience 

and a heartfelt willingness to seriously examine

 our sufferings, overcome them, learn the lessons, 

improve ourselves and our outlook on life.

Be careful when we blindly follow the 


masses. Those who follow the crowd will 


usually get no further than the crowd. The 


one who walks alone, knows that he is 


never alone, and will likely find himself 


in places no one has ever been. 

Some of our life lessons provide us with wellsprings of 

understanding so that we can further our knowledge and 

develop mentally, physically, and spiritually.

The importance of learning life lessons can not be 


understated. 

Many of our life 

lessons learned 

have been from

our up close and 

personal knowledge, observation, and experiences. The 

educational and experiential knowledge we have gained... 

has better equipped us to understand ourselves and make

more informed decisions.
 

The Word of God teaches us about life. It is a 

complete guide for life. Reading the Scriptures 

and attentively observing life makes us wiser. In the 

Scriptures is where all wisdom begins. A teachable 

person will listen and feast on God's Word and 

change direction... accordingly.


The wisdom we have acquired, by the grace of 

God, has helped us seek the truth coupled with the 

appropriate decisions as to what course of action 

should be applied to our given circumstances. This 

wisdom has given us the ability to live in a more 

godly way.


Because we think and act using knowledge,

 experience, understanding, insight, truth, 

patience, and common sense... we are better 

equipped to see, examine, and decipher 

practices, people, situations, and the 

perspectives of others in ways that we did 

not see before.


Many inspiring life lessons have been learned

 from our mentors who had their own rich life 

experiences. Our mentors generously passed-on 

to us... wonderful pearls of wisdom... treasure

 troves of truth, beauty, and pragmatic advice that

 has stood the test of time. Observing our mentors

 as they passed through their ebbs and flows of 

life has been invaluable.
 

On the flip side of our chosen mentors, some 

of our most tremendous teachers have been 

those who have opposed us, criticized us, 

rejected, betrayed, and hurt us the most... 

and oh my goodness... what painful; yet, great 

teachers they have been!!!
  As we transition into a more knowledgeable, 

experienced person... we start looking at

 what is really important in our lives.


As we grow in awareness, we seek to know 

truth, that deeper meaning to life, and what 

it is all about. We seek our truth, to fulfill our 

purpose, to somehow have our lives make 

sense in the context of everything that is 

going on in the world. We ask ourselves 

all-important questions, such as: 

What is my mastery and purpose in life?



We never know where life will take us or 

what life will teach us. But more likely than 

not… each day of our lives will, in some way, 

present us with difficulties, challenges, tests, 

and life lessons to be learned.


Everything in life happens for a valid reason. 

Sometimes, people and situations come to 

teach us painful lessons that we would not 

have learned any other way. They can usher

in extraordinary teachable moments, though 

the full impact of those moments may not be 

realized until many years later. They can, 

knowingly or unknowingly, motivate us so

we will not become immobilized and stuck 

where we do not belong. 


Life is full of inexplicable, incomprehensible,

unexplainable situations and random events. 

When we are in the middle of the most chaotic, 

challenging times of our lives… we are actually 

in the midst of some of the most valuable 

learning opportunities of our lives.


If we can start looking at those trying times 

in our lives as opportunities to grow, we will 

find that these life lessons can provide us with

 a wellspring of understanding that can be 

eye-opening and helpful to us.


Understanding this can help us see past 

any anger or frustration that we may have 

with people in our lives. It can bring us to 

place where we can objectively observe

the issue at hand. Once we can do this, we 

are well on our way to learning a life lesson.


Learning from our life lessons and staying 

open to learning can heighten our 

comprehension, and equip us with greater

opportunities, while cultivating and 

improving our quality of life.


Through the process of observation, 

research, investigation, and experience...

 we are able to acquire wisdom, and insight.

Undesirable consequences, reactions, repercussions, 


after-effects, punishments, and/or fallout have no 


deadlines and never seems to lose an address. 


The negative energies, when sent out into the universe, 


will reap an equivalent or more of that. It can and more


likely will come back.


Whether we are striving to further the level 

of our spiritual development or we are just 

starting to discover our spirituality, there are 

important life lessons that can be learned. 


Our spiritual growth clearly involves human 

exertion. These life lessons can ultimately lead 

us to a greater awareness and relationship with 

God.


On our journey through life, we can learn

lessons that will help us develop as individuals 

as well as prepare us for future endeavors. As 

we become spiritually, mentally, physically, 

and intellectually wiser… our portion expands. 


What was previously beyond our 

comprehension… has now become much 

clearer. We have become better equipped to 

work out what God has richly deposited and

worked in us.


Our purpose in life is to make the most of our 

time here on earth, to complete our life plan, 

and to learn the lessons included in our life plan. 

When we see life as a journey of learning and

 embrace the concept of being lifelong students… 

we open ourselves up to a more enlightened

and productive life.


Our hands-on collection of life experiences
 
have allowed us to have a deeper appreciation
 
and clearer perception of God and life.

Through each life lesson... we have consistently

experienced... God's amazing grace.
When we look back and examine our life 

experiences... we can see God's grace all over it.

"We were blind, and now we can see!"

John 9:25

When we are constantly on the go,


immersed in mundane activities, 


life can get away from us very 


quickly!

The older I get the more I enjoy the many benefits 


that comes from spending time alone. Freedom is 


considered to be one of the benefits of solitude;


freedom from the distractions of the world has the 


potential to spark creativity.


I appreciate and find solace in solitude and take 


advantage of all that solitude has to offer. I 


find it wholesome to be quiet and free of outside 


opinions, constraints, influences, and distractions. 

Quiet time affords us time to connect with God. 


It is a time for reflection. It is a time to meditate on 


our innermost thoughts and feelings, which can 


generate greater self-awareness. It is always 


spiritually enlightening, when we take the time


 to quietly ponder the meaning and purpose of 


our existence and our calling in life. 

There is a time for silence. Being alone is


 not a death sentence. Alone time, with 


ourselves, gives us the chance to develop 


the self, focus, recharge, clear out the mind-


clutter and think clearly. Quiet time gives us 


an opportunity to become clearer and more 


advanced in our thinking. It allows our minds


 to escape distractions. 



It is difficult to hear, to research, read, reflect,


 or unleash creativity and produce with ongoing 


distractions and busyness. Solitude has the 


power to decrease negativity in life while


renewing and replenishing us. 


Solitude can be thought of, by some, as 


undesirable because it is often linked with 


loneliness, but there is a significant difference... 


a world of difference between the two. 

For me, solitude does not entail feelings of 


loneliness. It is essential. It is a chosen state 


of being alone... without being lonely. It is a 


beautiful, pleasurable... very enjoyable, positive


and constructive way to regain perspective,


 maintain some semblance of balance, explore, 


know and grow ourselves. Solitude can lead 


to peace of mind and personal growth. 


welcome it.



Solitude provides an exhilarating experience


 for the mind, body and soul. And as quiet as it is kept, 


we all need periods of solitude, once in a while.


Life lessons learned can bring us to a place 

of humbling and grounding where we come to 

realize there is something greater than the 

material world we inhabit. 


We sense, at some point in our lives, that 

there is something important for us to do, 

or learn, or experience. We understand that 

there has to be something more than just

living day to day.


 
Every day is a gift, a fresh start, and an 

opportunity to learn, to live, and to grow!
Some of the important life lessons we have learned,
 
through perspectives, mistakes, and experiences,
 
are being passed on to the next generation,
 
and anyone else, so they may avoid costly mistakes
 
and have a deeper and better understanding of life.

All of us are heirs blessed by many determined


 people, nations, and cultures of past generations.  


We are the inheritors of all the rich deposits our 


ancestors left behind for our edification. 



We believe, just as our ancestors, we are blessed 


by God in order that we might be...a blessing to 


others.


We believe when blessings and life lessons are 

passed on... the wealth of experience, guidance, 

and inspiration can possibly help future 

generations to improve themselves and the

 world in which they live.

One of the biggest lessons we can ultimately


 learn is that while we can't control everything, 


we can control our response to things.


We, sincerely, believe blessings and life lessons learned

 
should NOT be placed under a basket,

 
but passed on...
from one to the other.

We believe other people can benefit from our life 

experiences and the lessons we have learned. We 

believe when blessings and life lessons are passed 

on... the wealth of experience, guidance, and 

inspirationcan possibly help future generations to 

improve themselves and the world in which they 

live.

Life is very brief and unpredictable and can blindside

 us in a heartbeat. It is our prayer that our readers will 

indulge in these Proverbs, perspectives, illustrations, 

quotes, and posters and glean all the insight they can... 

so they will be better equipped to effectively navigate

through life... and experience a greater future.
