Life's Lessons

The past is never a determinant of who we are today and who we will be in the future. I think (and I believe) that what we do today determines who we are and who we will be. It is not acceptable to judge a person based on what he has done in the past. We should not also make an impression out of the mistakes of the parents. Everything changes. Everybody should be given a chance.

Do not let other people's criticism pull you down. Make it a habit to check on your inner self every now and then. Meditate and reflect about yourself. Take criticisms as sign to improve yourself. Remember, it's all about perspective.

Love yourself first then love others. You can only love other people when you truly love yourself. Let go of the imperfections you see on yourself. Let go of all the worries. You are created in the image and likeness of God. Be thankful. Love should start from within. It should be from the bottom of your heart. If you love yourself well, love will overflow and will be felt by the people around you.

Be yourself. Don't pretend to be someone else. People love you not because you are ideal but because they see truth in you. Keep your communication lines open especially to family members and closest friends and the people you trust the most.

Listening gives wisdom. Always lend an ear. This will give you additional information and knowledge. Be open-minded when listening. If you must, take down notes.

Do not let your left hand know what your right hand has done. Do not broadcast when you help other people. Help them in silence. Giving donations are great and will really help other people's lives. But when you do it for other people to see then that's not help at all. That will be called publicity.

Pray harder. A person who knows his God and who prays to the Almighty pleases the Lord. Always thank the Lord for He has done to you and for what He has given you. Always pray for the strength He gave you and also for the breath of life. Pray for wisdom so that you will better understand.

~Till then
