"The Real Voyage of Discovery consist not in seeking
new landscapes but having new eyes"
Recently me and my husband discover all this online thing,
We discover how online marketing works,
We discover how to get your first gig, first client, first job.
I realized I still need to learn a lot of things, sometimes I want to stop,
Doubting myself If I can do it, but at the end of the day my desire to improve myself better always wins.
According to Robert Kiyosaki the author of the Rich Dad, Poor Dad best seller series which my husband and I have read it multiple times already.
"School is important but the street is a better teacher".
I remember, mom used to tell us (me and my siblings) that we should learn how to blend with different kinds of people
Because in reality the world was full of people with different character, background, and belief.
As we grow older mom used to send us to different relatives just to learn how to mingle.
Back then I never understand why and what she is trying to do to make us feel uncomfortable.
The challenges were painful but after so many years of existence, the lessons I've learned was priceless.
Now that I am bringing up my own children I am trying my best to teach them the proper way on how to face the world with dignity and integrity.
I know there are pros and cons of how my mom raised us all her children, but I believed it is with our own good and benefits.
And now that I am a mother and I am getting old and much wiser, I want everything for my children to learn.
So I compiled this Life Lessons so that when I am gone they have something to always look back.
When life is not fair they have some reference that life will never ever be fair. But it's worth it.
When things doesn't go their way, they will always remember that they have a mother who despite life is not fair she tried her best to live her life to the fullest.
That these lessons I am about to share, I've learned them along the way. I experienced 99.9% of them
Actually the article (Life's Lesson) was adopted from Freemans newspaper. I've read it when I am still single.
I clipped it way back in 1999 while weeding out some paper files I used to read.
I consider the article useful and I want to share them to you and to my children for future reference.
Hope you will learn something from them too just like me.
