28 Words of Wisdom to Live By
28 Words of Wisdom to Live by including some of my very own lessons learned and things my mom told me. Life is funny. Things can be rocking right along and out of nowhere, shit hits the fan. In those moments, how you respond, is really what determines the next step. I hope you read them all. If you look up the definition of wisdom you will get several versions depending on the dictionary. Wisdom encompasses so much; knowledge, common sense, experience, judgment, and understanding are just a few examples.
Be Kind. Random acts of kindness make everyone feel better.
Live for today. Stop living for tomorrow or worrying about the past.
Never look back. The past is your past for a reason. Leave it there.
Stop overthinking. Overthinking will destroy happiness every time.
Think before you speak. Words are powerful and cannot be taken back.
Don’t worry what others think of you. That is none of your business.
Don’t ever compare your life to others. It will eat you alive and you really have no idea what that other person is going through either.
You own your happiness. Keep that key in your pocket.
Never, and I mean never settle. Life is huge, this world is huge. Never settle for anything less than you deserve or want. That goes for relationships, jobs, etc.
Compromise. Know it, live it, preach it. Life is all about compromise. Even trees bend when the wind is strong. Learn to bend.
Time does heal. Give it time.
If you don’t have the answers, that is fine. It will come to you when the time is right. Pray about it.
God is in charge of timing, not you.
Do not let money control you. Money is a necessity. Work hard, pay your bills and live simple.
Never count your chickens before the eggs hatch. Another ward, don’t make plans. God makes plans. You make choices.
Never let someone tell you that you cannot do something. If you want it, go for it.
Giving up is for babies! If it is hard then you are on the right road. Nothing worth having comes easy.
Know marriage is hard. He or she may be your best friend and lover but they are also human. There will be good times and bad times. If your marriage is easy, then take a closer look.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Or question someone. It is better to know all the facts then to look like a fool later. Ironing out the details is always important to.
Grudges are poison. To you. Not the person you are holding a grudge towards. Stop poisoning yourself.
Do not judge. You aren’t God.
Do not gossip. It speaks a lot about your own character.
Own your mistakes, and learn from them. You will make mistakes. That is the way we learn.
Treat your wife/husband like you would want someone to treat your child. You know the whole plane safety thing? Put the oxygen mask on the kid first before yourself.
Respect your elders or old people in general. They may be annoying the hell out of you but anything they have to say will be important to you one day. So listen and file it away. I promise you, one day you will remember it and be grateful.
Spend time with your loved ones. You never know when they will be called to the pearly gates.
Make your own decisions. Know the difference between taking advice and letting someone pull you around like a puppy dog.
Always give it to God. He is the King of all things. He is a miracle worker. Trust Him, pray to Him.
