One of my favorite little places to get motivational pick-me-ups is from a great publication called Bits & Pieces.
Here is something that was published in the September 2011 issues (and yes, I am behind by a month reading them).
No Matter Your Age, There Is Always Something To Learn
(published in the magazine but left anonymous)
- I’ve learned that our dog doesn’t want to eat my broccoli either. – Age 7
- I’ve learned that if you want to cheer yourself up, you should try cheering someone else up. – Age 14
- I’ve learned that silent company is often more healing than words of advice. – Age 24
- I’ve learned that if someone says something unkind about me, I must live so that no one will believe it. – Age 30
- I’ve learned that the greater a person’s sense of guilt, the greater his or her need to cast blame on others. – Age 46
- I’ve learned that motel mattresses are better on the side away from the phone. – Age 50
- I’ve learned that regardless of yur relationship with your parents, you miss them terribly after they die. – Age 53
- 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. – Age 64
- I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with kindness, I usually make the right decision. – Age 66
- I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. – Age 82
- I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.
I’ve always believed that no matter how old we are, we have all learned something, and will continue to until the very last day we are on Earth. And, what to do with that wisdom but share it.
