10 Random Life Lessons


Some life lessons you learn by simply observing the way others live, by reading books, listening to talks or by being told straight to your face by someone wiser.  

Most life lessons come from first hand experience, which needless to say, those you learned the hardest way.

Often, we take things for granted that we fail to see their value until it's too late. 

Here are 10 of those random life lessons that may be trivial, mostly overlooked or common knowledge for some, but are helpful nonetheless.


10 Random Life Lessons


1. Sometimes we are so busy looking for someone or something better we fail to realize we have what's best for us all the while.




2. Those who seldom talk can speak words that can change the way you look at things than those who blabber all the time.




3. Love is not always enough to sustain a relationship. It should always come with respect, trust and hard work.




4. The person who brings you happiness can be the very same person who could bring you pain. Tweet




5. The world will not stop and grieve for your heartbreak. You need to get up and carry on with your life no matter how heavy your feelings are.




6. You either think before you act, or act before you think. The first will save you a lifetime of regrets, the second will earn you temporary happiness and a lifetime of grief.





7. Telling a person not to be angry is like saying he does not have the right to feel hurt or that his feelings are invalid. Often behind the mask of anger is a really hurt soul.  




8. You have to master the skill of listening to what the other person is NOT saying. That's where the truth hides.




9. Your partner will always be flawed, just like you. Accept her.



10. It doesn't matter how many books you've read or how many degrees you've earned. There is always something new to learn every day. Tweet

  19. All the points are great but number 10 is my favorite. I am always trying to learn new things. It doesn't have to be the most important thing -- sometimes it is just learning the names of the characters in the book series your granddaughter is reading or the name of each of the Little Ponies!

  20. Looking interesting!

  35. those are all true! Very much so!
    The truth I learned is that you don't have to change in order to be loved... that everybody deserves to be loved just for being them... no need to be richer, hotter, slimmer, younger. taller..... funnier....

  41. I love all of your posts so much! This is yet another great one. #5 is on of the most important things I need to learn over and over again. Self pity will not help you at all and the world frankly does not care about your struggles or pain, sad but true!

  44. Hello,
    Fabulous post. Every single point you have listed contain immense wisdom.
    For example the first point. Yes, we are always looking for something better and we are not satisfied with what we have. At the same time we fail to see that many other people envy what we have and would do anything to have what we have. Perhaps novelty wears of with use and therefore we want something else which we think will give us better satisfaction or more happiness. However satisfaction and happiness is short lived because happiness comes from within and nothing or no one else can make us happy unless we want to be happy.
    Is it necessary to have things to make us happy and satisfied? Some people are happy with minimum things for them to get along in this life where as there are innumerable who want to have more and more and yet not satisfied. For instance, the other man’s wife is more prettier, or the other man’s car is betteror the other man’s house more grand or the other man’s dog is sweeter and so on.
    You have clearly underlined the fact that we have every thing that we need to be happy and we don’t have to look for something else to make us more happy.
    Looking for something else will only make us unhappy and inadequate.
    I would have loved to dwell on each one of your fabulous points at great length.
    Best wishes

  45. Hi, dear Luxie! I have just returned from a one week blog hiatus. I needed to entertain a house full of family members who visited us from out of state. Thank you for waiting patiently for my return. I also want to thank you for continuing to support my blog in my absence and for leaving a nice comment for guest host Janie. We both appreciate it!

    These are all good life lessons. Many people like to run their mouths, engaging in small talk, or worse, constantly trying to prove they are right or that they are the smartest person in the room. I prefer quiet people who are good listeners and only speak when they have something worthwhile to say. Everyone has a right to experience upsets w/o others judging or condemning them. An angry person is hurting inside and instead of shouting them down or avoiding them, we can choose to help them by acknowledging their anger and eliciting specific information to get to the root of the problem. Every new day is an opportunity to live, to learn and to love.

  46. Brilliant tips, Lux! My favourite is #4!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Absolutely beautiful post, Lux. Yeah, an angry person truly does suffer from a hurt soul.

    ReplyDelete
  48. These are all so very, very true. And I love the memes that you put with them--perfect!

  49. Love these life quotes! My favourite is number 2.

  50. Hi lux, this is really a true and very valid post here. I'm learning from here and i made me question my life as well as to how i actually learn everyday. :)

    for me, as a church worker, i learn to hear and understand people even if it's hardest to understand them. :)

    i love No. 1, 2 and 3 list, as these are the shows that i saw as well, from 1, to that heartbreaking moment of groot who seldom talks and that heartbreaking scene of no. 3 in the notebook, also no.4, those people that we love hurts us most. True indeed!

  51. Great Post. My life lesson I learned is I am not the Holy Spirit and God does not love me best in relationship to my husband. I loved your post, your neighbor at the weekend brew. Diana

  58. Oh Lux... such important truths for us all! I agree with every single one of them... and know firsthand these lessons learned! Sharing this amazing post, my friend!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I read a quote once that said, "You've never truly missed someone unless you've sat next to a person you love, knowing you can never be together." Something like that. I had that situation in my younger years and it was TOUGH! But I found out later I was better off without him...the internet has taken away our ability to wonder about the one that got away. Often we know they turned out to be not such a good fish, after all!

  60. Great points to ponder. Thank you for sharing at The Weekend Brew.

  63. These are incredibly important lessons, Lux! Thanks for the reminders. I'm working on number 9 right now. My hubby and I are about to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. We're still learning about and figuring out how to respect each other's flaws :).

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think one of the lessons I learned this year is that my partner will always be flawed. I've come to accept that fact <3

  67. I absolutely loved reading this. I am the type of person that constantly listens to what others are not saying. I never knew someone else thought the same way until I read. Beautiful post.

  68. I love reading them all ten and learn from there:). My life of passion is biggest than my life of fashion is. Fashion is come and go but life is there with me every day, however, respect, kindness, love, caring, being honest is the best of my all......

    Wish you a peaceful into week:).

  71. Great life lessons here! I know one I learned the harder way was that to care for myself is not the same as to be selfish! :)

  72. Good choice of statements Lux,

  73. Great life lessons. Thanks for sharing them at TGI Saturdays.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I have to agree with this list completely! It is hard to keep all of them in mind all the time, but they are truthful. People will be flawed and are allowed to be hurt as well. Especially the point about listening to what they are not saying as well.

  83. Your lesson # 5 is the hardest one that I have learned. I say that moving on is really an art for it takes some creative efforts to really get over it. But afterwards, I felt refreshed, renewed as if I can take any blow that life can throw to me without breaking down.
