      I am still living by The Grace of Allah.
      Learning, for the Muslims, begins in the Cradle, and
      ends at death.

      I've lived for over 40 years and I've learned that Life is fairly simple to understand and that people who make it complicated, more than actually needed.

    I learned that just because you like ramen noodles AND peanut butter does not mean they will go together. Oh and it's a bad idea to pick the biscuits out of the oven without mitts no matter how fast your reflexes.

    I've learned that I have always known myself, though I have allowed others to distract me along the way.  I am my own best counselor.  There really is no place like home.  And much of the world's beauty forms in response to a wound.

        One of the things I seemed to learn at some point, if I remember it correctly, is that wishing for impossible is futile smile

    I have learned to be positive always, despite the hurdles, even that shall pass.
    Enjoy every moment that I have. After being through some tough situations and overcoming them you just begin to be grateful for what you have I guess..

    but this learning has made my life extra special! smile smile smilesmile

    I keep learning every moment!!

    Even when things around you seem hopeless... ALWAYS be grateful. That you have a roof, over your head, a friend, a partner, family, a job, a career, a child, food in the fridge... and the list goes on.

    Interesting question and worth answering:

    Looking at life in one's youth is much more different then viewing it once one gets old.  Things I took for granted like the sunlight shining down on the trees, on the grass and on the buildings are a beautiful sight, the air filling my lungs is intoxicating the sound of voices, swirling leaves plus free of pain for hour, a day is a wonderful thing, so I say to myself how much I'm going to miss this all.

    I have learnt to hope for the best but believe in the worst, like that, every time things work out ideally is special, but when they don't, we are prepared to cope.

    That life is a learning lesson,you should forever be willing to learn about something new,even if you don't use it.

    Knowledge is power!

    Example: New zodiac sign chart,nice to know but I'm sticking with the sign I was born with

    I have learned that life is a battle. You have to work hard and struggle. There are times you are happy and sad. Life is a mystery.The best thing is to trust in God.
