Lessons I’ve Learned This Week That Could Change A Persons Life

lessons learned We all learn lessons every day if we pay attention to them, here are some of the major lessons I learned this past week through various readings and experiences.

1. When you create the intention within yourself to do something, do it as soon as you can, don’t delay or someone else will get the credit. There are many variances to this number, not only will someone else get the credit but you may forget, or worse yet, you may never do it because you waited so long you talked yourself right out of doing it.

2. When you cause someone else to suffer, you set in motion the effect of suffering the same way or more than what you caused. Many call this karma or reaping what you sow, it’s a law of life, you cannot plant corn seeds and get pumpkins, life just doesn’t work that way. I can see this all over the news at the present moment, people are spreading hate but yet want love and respect in return, it doesn’t work that way, you cannot spread hate and get love in return, only when you spread love will you receive love.

3. How much are we focused on others? This was a huge lesson for me this past week, I found that I am focused too much on other people. For example, I get upset when people don’t put in the same amount of energy I do, like when my husband doesn’t help out around the house as much as I do. I can get upset when people at work don’t try their hardest so some jobs only get half done. Why am I focused on them? I am in this world to do my best, not to sit and become emotionally upset because others aren’t living like I want them too.

4. Do you have a problem remembering the lessons you’ve learned? This was another huge lesson as I found that what I had learned wasn’t as fresh in my mind anymore, like how our memories fade over time. I’m not sure how to help this situation yet, writing the lessons I’ve learned down does help as long as I can remember where I wrote them down at. Trying to make a routine out of it for a while really seems to help but there are days that routines don’t work and you end up flying by the seat of your pants.

If anyone has any more tips on these subjects, feel free to add your comments and I will share them so they can help others. Life doesn’t have to be challenging, we can share our experiences and what worked for us and hopefully what we share will help someone else.

About Mimic Nature

Hello everyone! I’m so glad to see you! I’m Jana, I’m an eccentric wife and mother; I work 2 jobs and homeschool my kids. With all this going on in my life, I want to focus my attention on the things that make me happy, and the one thing that has made me happy ever since I was a little kid is nature. As my life progressed and changed through my teen years and my early married life, I lost my connection to it. Life took over and here I am living disconnected from nature because of work, bills, and every day events that keep me away. So the next chapter of my life will be dedicated, at least in some small part, to reconnecting to nature; I still have a mortgage, work, and a family to take care of, but now, I will be more aware of nature and my place within it. Each day, I will find some small way to not harm nature. Not long ago I was introduced to something called permaculture and I fell in love with it. Basically, it’s building a small ecosystem in your own backyard that is based off of what nature would do naturally. In turn your backyard helps you, and you help your backyard…with minimal work!! At first it may take more work, but over time, your backyard will become self-sustaining and you won’t have to work as hard…other than harvesting. I love the life lessons that I learn from nature, so what I promise to do is share a lesson that I’ve learned from nature each week, share what I’m learning about permaculture, and share my own personal progress in changing my homestead into a permaculture Garden of Eden. And since it’s hard to make any changes in life, I want to have some free giveaways once in awhile…all nature themed of course, to help all of us remember our ‘green’ family. Read a few articles, see if you like what is there, if you do, go ahead and subscribe. If you don’t like what you see, that’s ok, I’m honored that you took the time to get to know me a little and see my vision for my blog and my life.

    Thank you for sharing your insights. Seth talks a lot about compassion. For me sometimes I view compassion as surrender, when what I really want to do is snarl. I also viewed compassion as a middle finger to anyone who has been slighted by systematic and recurring injustice. I’m still grappling with the idea of compassion as being a strong point, but gosh is it hard to lay down arms.

      I completely understand Jazz, I’m not a saint when it comes to compassion as I can feel myself getting angry because things are not done the way I want. Compassion is hardest at home for me as I want things done my way.
