Life Lessons via Mister Rogers

From the man who taught us all so much...

Years ago, I read a book titled, The World According to Mister Rogers: Important Things to Remember. It was an amazing story, full of lessons in life and motivation. It doesn't matter how old, or young, you are; I think everyone needs a pick-me-up of motivation now and again. The following are a few life lessons that I think we all can identify with at some point in our lives. Enjoy. :)

* How many times have you noticed that its the little, quiet moments, in the midst of life, that seem to give the rest extra-special meaning?

*All our lives, we rework the things from our childhood, like feeling good about ourselves, managing our angry feelings, and being able to say good-bye to people we love.

*Solitude is different from loneliness, and it doesn't have to be a lonely kind of thing.

*I'm proud of you for the times you came in second, or third, or fourth; but what you did was the best you had ever done.

*The thing I remember best about successful people I've met all through the years, is their obvious delight in what they're doing...and it seems to have very little to do with worldly success. They just love what they're doing and they love it in front of others.

*Love isn't a state of perfect caring; It is an active noun, like 'struggle.' To love someone is to strive to accept that person, exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.

*To err is human, even good people sometimes do bad things.

*There is only one thing evil cannot stand and that is forgiveness .

*If we've ever wanted someone's love, then we've known what competition really means.

*One of the deepest longings a person can have is to feel needed and essential .

*The greatest gift you ever give is your honest self .

A very wise man was Mr Rogers, and this example of things to remember is very helpful. In fact I needed to read a couple of them right at this time. Thanks Alyssa.
