I’ve only been a member here at Virily for 18 days and I can already tell that everyone here has something very special to share with the world 🙂 Everyone I’ve met here is absolutely amazing and I am greatly humbled by the great friends I am making <3
The best life lesson my 43 years has taught me is that, no matter what happens, you have to keep your head up and keep pushing forward; because, if you don’t, no one else is going to do it for you. They can’t. I’ve been through A LOT. Depression is a horrible thing and it can take you down so low that you’ll think you will never get back up. However, if you continue to think this way, you really won’t get back up. You’re going to have to push yourself through it at all costs. Your life truly depends on it…
Can you share your best life lesson with us? I know we’re all here to try to make some extra money; but, while we’re at it, we can also help one another by sharing our wisdom <3
Much Love & Many Blessings,
Windy Grace <3
Windy grace…. Superb post
Thank you <3 🙂 Do you have any life lessons you'd like to share?
The realistic topic for all.
Thank you, Pradhan! It’s a pleasure to meet yoU! 🙂
Hello, I’m Andre’ Hartslief “I finally discovered, that man’s whole purpose in life, is not to do the right things in life or to be good, to be successful or famous. Our entire purpose in life, is to express divinity unto everyone and everything . How we do that, is by transforming ourselves completely, from an old state of existence to a new state and if we start removing those limitations piece by piece, It is only, then, that the Supreme intelligence, who is God, the one gave us all life, will begin begin to express himself, unbridled through us.
Hello Andre’. I agree, up until we get to the “expressing himself” part… You see, I think anything that creates life MUST have both male and female characteristics, whether in separate or one combined vehicle. This is proven in all of nature. In the efforts of world peace and awakening, we MUST allow woman to become an equal part of the “club,” boys. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, Andre’! You’re awesome! <3
What I’ve learned most about life is that it isn’t about me, it is about God. As long as I do as the bible commands and put others before myself, giving love frequently and lavishly, and place my problems in His hands, I’ll always have all that I need and the true peace to enjoy it.
My beliefs refer to God as the Universe and the Bible’s commandments as common courtesy, but I completely agree, Rex! <3 As my dear friend, Jason, says, "Just be excellent to each other." It is so much simpler than some folks make it out to be. Excellent advice! Thank you for all of your wisdom, my friend. I'm glad we met here 🙂
I thought of another truth. “It is better to be kind than to be right.” Nearly all arguments are pointless because people who believe something will rarely be persuaded to believe differently because of an argument. Even if a person uses logic and ‘proves’ that they are right, all they will do is cause bad feelings. Arguing also shows arrogance and pride rather than humility. Truly loving each other doesn’t happen amidst an attitude of arrogance and pride. It can only happen when we are humble.
This is a truism that I must remind myself of often. I try to teach and edify people but if someone wants to disagree or refuse to understand, it is best to not argue. I can teach people, but I can’t ‘learn’ them. Thus, it is better to be kind than to be right.
I absolutely agree! <3 The older I get the more I lean toward speaking my truth and leaving it at that. Beating a dead horse is a complete waste of time, and some people only like to hear themselves talk anyway lol Listening is where the learning comes from. That's why we're taught early on to listen to our elders.
How we respond to people can also have a huge impact. I don’t know how many times my wife has related an event that is inaccurate, when I’ve simply said, “I don’t remember it that way, but okay.” No argument occurs. If I said, “No, you’re wrong” I’m almost guaranteed that there will be an argument. lol
It is like a comedian said some time ago, “There is always more than one way to say something. If I tell my wife that she has a face that would stop a clock, I’d better be ready to duck frying pans and other flying objects. If I tell her that when I look at her, time stands still, I’ll probably get a hug and a kiss. Yet if you think about it, I’ve said exactly the same thing.”
LOL! I’ve never thought about it that way before! It is basically saying the very same thing. I guess I should really consider that when my guy friends around here put their foots in their minds lol It’s a constant! Your wife sounds a lot like myself. I love women with backbones! 🙂
Every day living has amazing potential 🙂
Yes! It is what you make it, isn’t it, Paul? <3
Nice topic and post!!
Someone once told me Assume is making the ASS of U and ME.
So its best not to assume things!
Great advice, alibb! Thank you for stopping by and sharing with us 🙂
There is so much I could say. I guess one is… It is what it is. …. We cannot change others… It doesn’t matter what others think of us…. Life is short…. Take nothing for granted.
All great advice, Carol! I couldn’t agree more, especially on it not mattering what others think of us. If we constantly worry about what others think, we never become who we are! <3 Thank you for stopping by and sharing your wisdom <3
I doubt that I’ve learned anything that hasn’t been learned thousands of times before…
Possibly, but not by everyone who reads this 😉 You could be the one that spares them…
In that case, I will go with “Live for yourself- if you try to live for anyone else you’ll just end up disappointing the both of you…”
but I expect it has been said better
No, I think you said it best, Alex; and I completely agree! Thank you!
You are far too kind but also most welcome
Very nice and such an encouraging post. Life provides us with so many lessons and experiences. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for stopping by, reading, and commenting, Teila 🙂 It’s a pleasure to meet yoU!
Wonderful post and some great responses! One thing I try not to do is judging people too quickly. We should try to understand each other’s reasoning before sharing our opinions.
Thank you so very much, Ellie <3 I completely agree! I don't believe we were given this life to judge others, but to be our best possible selves and ASSIST others when we can. Judging is no help to anyone. It's actually the polar opposite.
You summed it up much better!
I’ve gone through a very difficult period in my life.My motto is, what does not kill you, tote the fighter..
Amen, Branka! <3
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
Strider’s spoileriffic song is a favorite of mine
I hope, your 18 days with us all in Virili is the fun days. Speaking of sharing the wisdom of life, I think sometimes I feel I have been talking too much about such things in almost all of my posts. However, since this is your will, little I want to say is that everything about the world begins with how we view the world, as black or white, as a source of suffering or learning process, as a curse or a fortune. Our dominant perspective will have a major impact on how we respond to all that comes to us or that we go to. It will also greatly affect our paradigm in placing happiness; as a destination or as a way.
These are the best days of my life, Albert <3 Never is there a better day than one spent with kindred spirits and genuinely great people. Your posts are amazing! Not enough can be said on this topic until there is a world-wide awakening leading to world-wide peace. I'm so happy and humbled to have met you <3 You're AMAZING! <3
So far I have felt as an average person who has no special advantages whatsoever, it turns out that now I realize my only advantage; I can fly! And it can only happen by your compliment!
Awh! <3 No, my dear, you were flying just as well without me! I'm just the wind that speeds the sail 😉 lol
Hi Windy! Great post, and only 18 days? I feel I know you better, and that is thanks to your wonderful posts and comments you’ve made on mine. I couldn’t agree more with you. As far as life lessons..That’s something to think about. I am now 55 years old, my kids raised… I could only be halfway through my life at this point or I could go tomorrow so saying that I don’t know really. I guess what I have learned so far is that be yourself, and don’t care what others think of you. Take time out of your busy schedule for yourself at least once a week. You are strong enough to get through the toughest times, life is really short so live in the present. Laugh often.
Good Morning and Happy Sunday, Kim! <3 Thank you for your compliments 🙂 It's been a rough couple of weeks for me so I'm just coming back, trying to pick myself back up. Great advice and I SOOOOO needed to hear that right now!!! You are such a huge blessing, Kim <3 Now that the eclipses are over, I sure hope this wild energy is going to slow down! I definitely feel like we've known one another for a good, long time 🙂 Virily truly has an awesome community here <3
Oh good to hear you are back! Sorry about the rough weeks, It has been rough… Is it over? I feel better today, well actually starting late yesterday. What was that??? Geeze. It would of been a good time to just stay in bed right? I am always arguing about the moons energies, but there just are too many coincidences. I always tell my Reiki friend who feels EVERYthing, I feel fine. I don’t know what you mean. Full moon pish posh. Giggles. Thank you for the huge compliments as well. My dad always used to say you will meet people like this, when you do, you say, “So, we meet again” !
Definitely! So, we meet again! 😀 <3 Love it! <3 <3 <3
Considering we had NO Full Moon for the entire month of February, plus a solar eclipse right at the Dark Moon, it's no wonder we've all been proverbially drug through the mud :/ I'm sooooooo glad that's over! I think we're on a much better path now that we have a Full Moon in Virgo (both my Sun and my Moon sign) TODAY 😀 Welcome, welcome, March 1st! lol
The solar eclipse, during a month without a Full Moon, really showed its butt. I won't get too much into the so-called "gender war" here, but it was definitely emphasized throughout February, with egos off the charts! 🙁 I witnessed one last shebang last night on Facebook, as a childhood ex-boyfriend of mine attacked a much younger fellow on one of my posts for absolutely no reason except I was giving the younger fellow some attention on one of my posts about marching to the beat of your own drum. It was innocent enough, but Mr. Mulletman we'll call him has been trying to get my attention for a while to no avail. I talk to him just like anyone else on Facebook; but he wants a date and I have no desire because he constantly beats on his chest like Tarzan just like he did this time lol But, that's not all February brought to the table. It seems everything that could go wrong, did. I'm hoping it put all the bad stuff for 2018 into one month and now it's over lol Let us pray!
Are you finding Reiki helpful? We had a very nice Life Enrichment Center here, but it got shut down by a religious fanatic mayor… Small town America is a tripp!
It's always a pleasure talking to you, Kim! <3 Sending awesome vibes and healing light your way! Happy March! 😀 😀 😀
Well, that makes sense. I am virgo as well. lol on the Tarzan man.
I can always tell when my friend does a session for me, she doesn’t live in my state. I can tell the next morning. Sorry about the back woods Mayor, we can’t have that hippy dippy stuff in our county. lol Around here people are a bit more tolerant, but you still run into those people. Thank you Windy, Happy March to you too!
The American Dream is a bullshit lie. Never get married, never have kids. Anything you do in life the government will find ways, be it thru illegal taxation, or the JDR family court systems, will find ways to suck you dry if you ever get divorced, and make your life a living hell for it. You PAY for marriage, then PAY even more for divorce. As if they are GOD> There is no fairness, someone less qualified will be hired for the job you applied for because they have darker skin and scream Oppression till laws like Affirmative Action are passed to give them a head above you no matter what. Then remember we live in a mixed society in America, with everyone being a minority by race or sex….But WHITE MEN!! That’s right WHITE MEN, everyone gets minority tax discounts, and better chances than you for loans, and grants….you just get the heaviest tax load bill to pay for it all. That is Truth!!
To be completely honest and fair here, I think what you’re experiencing is the leveling of the playing field. I’m sorry to have to say this, but now you understand what it feels like to be treated like an oppressed minority. Maybe now, as white men speak out on oppression, something will actually get done! 🙂 You know very well that I adore you, Jason; but, being a mixed-racial woman, oppression is nothing new to me… And there are still attempts to oppress/censor me every day, in one way, shape, or form; and, most especially, on Facebook by white men.
The one thing that I have learned in my life is that above all else the only person you can definitely depend on is yourself. If you truly believe in yourself and never give up on yourself no matter what happens in your life you will go far and be able to achieve amazing things.
I absolutely agree! Thank you so very much for this very sound advice, RasmaSandra! <3
