    That there is always something to be grateful for, and that trust in a divine power takes away the pressure to be perfect.

    The most basic lesson that life has taught all who may read this is . . . lesson (1) . . . how to stay alive.

    That none of us know how long we have here on earth. We should be grateful for what we have and live each day as though it's our last. Life is too short to hold grudges and we should treat people as we want to be treated ourselves.

    To be humble... At every age, no matter what we have learned, there is still so much more to learn, that we can never claim to know it all or act like that.

    The world doesn't owe you anything, so you need to work extremely hard and get a little lucky to be successful.

    many.....one is to 'keep on keeping on'....when adversity confronts one....
    ....to live each day to the fullest
    ...to not form hasty decisions about others.....
    ...be still. listen. learn...
    ..'.what goes around, comes around'
    ...truly....treat as others in a manner you wish to be treated...

    On the top of my list would be patience and gratitude. We should be patient with people and situations and wait to see what we can learn from them. Gratitude can keep us focused joy, if we can learn these two things we will have a wonderful life.

    That the only person that you can ultimately depend on is yourself. If you have something important to do, don't give the task to anyone else, no matter how close you are to them. It is always better to take care of it yourself.

    It is not that I do not understand your question, or disregard it.

    The way that it is worded, or perhaps, the way it found me,
    strikes my 'humour bone'.........please, allow me........

    ALL of the lessons that I have learned, have been through life
    and living.........all of them.
