One of my favourite sayings is “When we know better we do better” by Maya Angelou. It is okay to make mistakes, we all make them…. but it is a real shame not to learn from them .
We need to increase our knowledge and in particular our self-knowledge. The more we know and learn about ourselves, the better equipped we are to make it through life and it’s challenges. As we grow, as we age, as we make mistakes….we learn. Without knowledge we can not improve. The more we listen to others that we trust, learn from our mistakes, learn more about ourselves , learn from those who have been through tough times, read and investigate the better prepared we are to face our own life. Here are some sayings that I like to remind myself to keep trying and keep learning:
Knowledge is power Sir Frances bacon……………….
Be not afraid of growing slowly; be afraid only of standing still. Chinese Proverb
The happiest life is that which constantly exercises and educates what is best in us. Hamerton
If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.
Fear less, hope more, eat less, chew more, whine less, breathe more, talk less, say more, hate less, love more, and good things will be yours.
“When you know better you do better.”
Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
Do you feel like you are improving with age?? Do you feel like you are getting happier? Can you make some changes to improve your situation? I would love to hear from you on what you have learned that has helped to improve your happiness?……..
