On the eve of her 45th birthday, Regina Brett wrote down 45 lessons she had learned from life. For some reason, these got shared around the world as life lessons from a 90 year old woman, making people remark at how young Regina looked! 🙂 When I turned 50, I wrote a post on my blog too – 50 Life Lessons From 50 Years.
What Are Life Lessons?
Life is always teaching us something, if we’re open to learning. Experiences, both good and bad, can be great teachers.
H Jackson Brown wrote a book called ‘Live and Learn and Pass it On’ which is basically a list of contributions from various people – kindergarten kids and teenagers to senior citizens. In the words of the author, this is what started off the book : “On the morning of my fifty-first birthday, I thought it would be interesting and maybe even enlightening to jot down a few things more than half a century of living had taught me.” He decided to ask his friends and acquaintances to contribute their ideas and they in turn asked others to join this effort. “Editing their entries convinced me that wisdom knows no age.” Jackson says.
“Regardless of how much we know, it is never enough. School is always in session, and life challenges us to excel at being both insatiable student and inspired teacher.” – H Jackson Brown
Today I’m happy to bring to your our very first edition of the Write Tribe Mag – a compilation of posts from the members of the Write Tribe Facebook Group, all sharing their life lessons. You can download it here.
This is our first attempt at putting a Mag together. If you spot any errors or have any feedback, do let us know. We’re learning all the time.
PS: The results of the #PeriodPride competition will be out tomorrow. Please watch our Facebook Page (you’re welcome to ‘like’ the page too!) for updates. Thank you for your wonderful response. You did a great service to the cause.
Another week and another round of #WritingWednesdays. We look forward to you telling us about topics you’d like covered here.
There’s no prompt this week. We invite you to add links to your posts from this week. The linky will be open until next Tuesday.
Please do the right thing – comment on the posts of others and share the love (use the hashtag #writingwednesdays). Thank you.
