Lessons Everywhere

“Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t”.

Think back on everyone you’ve met. The people you like, the ones you don’t. Everyone has something to share with you and I think this is a very valuable lesson. So next time you meet someone you don’t relate to, try to find something they can teach you. The more you learn the better a person you’ll be. Looking at it this way seems to make it easier–at least for me.

This is true with life as well. I’d like to believe that everything happens for a reason and good can come out of even the worst situations-you may learn something.

Expiration Date

From what I’ve learned, everything–good or bad, has an expiration date. Whether it’s anger, scandal, love…everything fades. No matter what you do to preserve it (or settle it) the best thing to do is just wait it out. I figured this out this year. Every time a rumor would go around about me or I’d get angry with a friend but not want to confront them and start something, after about a week it would be gone. Think of it this way: It’s like December. For so long you enjoy the autumn colors not really thinking twice about them and before you know it they’ve disappeared. There still there but not like before–the chaos of all the different colors has gone leaving only an elapsed brown shadow. Just interesting that’s all.
