Life has taught me...............

When i was still a veryyyy small girl (cant remember how old i was then sha), i use to browse thru different copies of Vanguard newspaper to get to my favourite section, which was "what life has taught me", and in my head, thinking that when i grow up i would send my own contributions, Ndi nkem na so i begin ask any big person wey i know say 'what has life tot u??? some of dem go just look me laff waka go but some go answer me, and i go write am down, if d one wey i nor fit spell' i go tell them to write am by dem self :-)
omo u need to see my jotter, It was my special scrap book.
newayz i dont think that section still exists (abi?) but over the years, life has taught me so much.... from my home, neighbours, school, friends, novels, work, nollywood even from blogger, Here are some of them :

# Life has taught me not to rely on anyone except God
# Life has taught me that everything happens 4 a reason

# Life has taught me that prisoners sometimes become kings eg Obj

# Life has tot me that some people will walk over the top of you to get ahead

# Life has taught me never to do anything that can warrant a mother's curse

# Life have taught me that I have not failed, I've just found another way that won't work
# Life has tot me that your mindset influence your action and your action determines your life.

What about you???????

Your #1 life lesson is also my number one.

It's funny how we fall in love with our "other halves" but yet they cannot complete us. Borrowing & revising the line from the Maguire movie, "God completes me."

"Life has taught me never to put a 100% trust in the abilities of any man." When disappointments come, I am already predisposed to the idea that we all have flaws...and big ones too.

Some of life's lessons are tough though. Wow, u must have been a very dedicated lil woman...making a profound scrap book like that! Lol.

Jaycee said...

life has taught me never to rush out of the bathroom to answer a call, the phone stops ringing

lifes taught me that the ps in a letter always holds the most important Ps i love you, or're in trouble with mom when u come home

lifes taught me that nothing beats going on your knees in prayer to calm a troubled heart,

lifes taught me that(well when i was a teen) guys only hug you just to see if you're wearing a bra.

oh and my absolute fave...
lifes taught me that embarasing comerials like 'always sanitary pads' always comes on when you're in a living room filled with guys. not lilke it matters, but sometimes, somethings just cant help but

i know i should have gone into the deep ish, but i'm tired of thinking deep, so imma leave you with the gooffy lessons.

Wow I can relate to almost everything you wrote. Except the failure one. Im still bad at taking failure well. What has lif taught me?:
1. If it doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger.
2. People will only treat you the way you let them treat you.
3. Confidence is everything.
4. Maximise every today- tommorow might never come
5. Nothing is ever as bad as it seems...

Life has taught me that learning how to let go will go a long way.

Life has established that if you can control your mind, you can rule the world.

Life is such a brief phase. Make your stamp in it. God expects us to.

And finally, Life has taught me that serious trouble comes just before you win the prize. The devil knows what he is doing!

Life has thought me to expect the unexpected, and expect nothing from man, but everything from God.

You are saying pastor? HA! let me tell you, a man in austria was found to have imprisoned his daughter in his basement for 24 years AND HAD 7 KIDS WITH HER.

Life has taught me to be strong for myself cos that's all I can do.

It has taught me that a man showing me his thing does not mean we are getting married or even in a relationship.

it has taught me that if you are patient enough, even your father who called you foolish will come to you for advice..

It has taught me alot.
