      Life lessons....hmm....

      -always be yourself. You don't want people to like you for someone you're not. The best friends and lovers in life are the ones who fall in love with you for who you really are. It takes no effort to be yourself, it takes more effort than it's worth to be someone else.

      -my parents were right.

      -No matter what is happening in life, and mountainous your plate seems, you can handle it if you decide to.

      -This too, shall pass.

      -Life is too short for drama, crap, deadbeat friends, abusive partners, and self-inflicted limits.

        Ladyface: Always staying to yourself, seems to be the best mantra for making major life decisions as well.

      Give second, third and fourth chances.
      Don't be afraid to talk about spiritual things, and relationships.
      Don't break friendships. Nurture them instead.
      Love your wife and children. Sacrifice for them every day.
      Give to others before buying toys for yourself.
      Take care of your health when you're young.
      Seek to understand why you were made.

      All I have control over are the thoughts I allow myself to think. Everything else is more or less uncontrollable. And even this control that I have, I have to excercise regularly, or my thoughts wander all over the place and lead me on endless wilde goose chases, if I don't reign them in.

      But when I manage to keep myself under control, my life is controllable and it goes very well.

      Make lemonade out of the citrons live throws into your lap.

      There's a golden nugget in everything, I just have to look for it.

      Our children are our best teachers.  If we pay attention and give them the chance to show us what they know; we often discover that they are much wiser than we could ever hope to be.

      Hah. Isn't that the truth. That's a good one. Stupidity and weakness.

    Probably my biggest life lesson was the revelation that I am not a body, a mind, or a conglommeration of emotions, but the Observer of these.   The Observer which is the real us continues to look out through eyes whose molecular content has changed a myriad times as we grow older, but we still have this sense of 'me' or 'I'.   This is because our physicality, our thinking patterns, and our emotional responses are subject to change, but the real I is not.   

    Why?  Because the real 'I' is life itself.  Maybe we take on the rest simply for the experience.  Maybe it's to learn things.  Frankly, I don't know.   I do know,though that "I AM."

      Life is an illusion. It is all about what we think and perceive. We believe our thoughts implicitly. We rarely challenge our beliefs.  We live our life based on our thoughts and beliefs, and so does everyone else.  If what we think is an illusion, than I might as well make my thoughts good and positive,so  the illusion  of my life is good and positive.

    Some really good ones.  I especially like Bel Marshall, I totally agree.  I will check some of your hubs out about life lessons.  I find it interesting and inspirational to hear what others have learned.

    What a great topic Sher! I'm still relatively inexperienced, in my 20's here, so I'm not sure if I have much to contribute. So far, I've learned that your loved ones will let you down. From my mother's experiences, I've learned to develop my own hobbies and identity outside of a partnership. From my father's mistakes, I've learned the value of patience and appreciation.

    Teach!! If you can help someone with knowledge you have, teach it, but teach it in a fun, down to earth way!

    Also, if your parents were good to you growing up...that is if they didn't beat you and made sure you had all you desired then be good to them, call them every now and then and tell them you appreciate their guidance.

    Life is too short not to be fabulous. If you are not happy, take steps to make sure you are, if the steps you take do not make you happy, change your path or change the way you think about those steps.

    What other people think of you is none of your business. This is the wisest lesson I have learnt. The reason is that it teaches you not to give a hoot what people think about you, because seriously, the only people that matter are you, you and you.

      Opticuillusions-Thanks and I think we all have things to pass on, no matter what your age. Slim_helmi-I think you are right on with that.  It makes so much sense now. Thank you both for reading my hub.

    That life isn't fair. Just accept the hand your dealt and make the most of it. It's not the things that happen to us, but rather our responses to life's toughest challenges that form our character and will create a better future for ourselves and loved ones. Getting caught up in the "Why me?" "What did I ever do to deserve this?" attitude will only drag you into the depths of depression, but moving forward with your faith, love and compassion still intact will lift you up. I read a most beautiful hub by Ladyjojo today about the death of her 5 year old brother which was amazingly uplifting, despite it being incredibly heartbreaking. It illustrates what I'm trying to say here.

      The name of Ladyjojo's aforementioned hub is "In Memory of My Deceased Brother." It can teach us all about the most important lesson in life- unconditional love and acceptance.
