When I taught career development to single parents and homemakers, we always tried to sneak in a little uplifting, motivational segment to help everyone stay emotionally healthy. Going through some old papers, I found one which was titled, “What I’ve Learned.” Here are six from the list that I particularly like:
I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he or she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
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 learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.
I learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.
I learned that making a living is not the same as making a life.
I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn!
The pictures I included are just flowers from around my house. This year, they seemed to thrive. Flowers are uplifting to me, especially in times like we are now experiencing. I like to stop and smell the flowers and appreciate their beauty.
