The Most of life

Posted by Patrice Smith

I sat here thinking about what to blog and inspire you with today. Of course, my blogs are inspired by my everyday activities and the lessons I've learnt. As I sat here, I started thinking and asking myself about life in general. What is life? what makes it so special, and what makes everyone's experience so...different. As I thought about that, a famous quote by Hellen Keller popped into my head. She once said, "Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood." In one quote, all my questions were answered.

Some of these life lessons have been compiled in the beautifully designed slideshow below. Enjoy!

    Patrice,

    What a lovely post. I'm so glad I discovered your site. Life is about lessons. I think if we focus on the positive to be gained from siutations it would help us immensely.

    You sure are right Kim. Life is a succession of lessons... from everything we come across daily, there is a lesson to be learnt - if only we payed attention more.

    I'm happy you found my site! please follow. Keep in touch!

    -Pat

    Thanks for coming by. That quote is so true. I've definitely learned that thru parenthood. No matter how many times I warn or urge the kids to consider another way because of a personal experience...they still look at me like I'm a little crazy...and do it there way to discover the same outcome I warned them about. Live and learn...for yourself. Holly

    Definitely Holly! Parents always try to "protect" their children by not wanting them to make mistakes (sometimes which the parents themselves had once made). That's all and good and well, but the lesson is often times better learnt from one's own experience(s).

    I'll definitely be stopping by on Sunday - can't wait!
