It’s nice to work when the majority of the world are taking some time off – I can get time to catch up with bits and bobs, read those mails and look at the sites I’ve been meaning to look at for some time. I found this site on Gimundo and thought it was worth sharing. As we head towards the end of the year, reflecting on things that have happened this year and planning for what we’d do better next year, this site has a list of things that people have learned. here are a few of my favourites that have made me think:
11. Mary Jane C 9/18/2007
I’ve learned that 99% of what I’ve ever worried about, never came to pass and all that worrying was for nothing….
69. Heidi S. Morgan 9/18/2007
…that letting go, and accepting is so much more enjoyable and peacemaking than having to stand my rigid ground in every small matter…
224. Debbie T 9/18/2007
to let go of grudges and bad feelings because they serve no other purpose than to spoil your own mood
260. Martina A 9/19/2007
I’ve learned that even the smallest act of kindness makes someone smile.
413. Brooks N. 9/20/2007
I’ve learned that those around us put a lot more weight on what you do than what you say in evaluation of your character.
420. Ann W 9/21/2007
I’ve learned that I should be myself – everyone else is taken.
425. Stefanie C. 9/21/2007
Let go of expectations – People do things for a reason, look at the obvious. Seek understanding first and the rest will follow.
598. Marilynn P. 9/28/2007
I’ve learned that a positive attitude will get you much further in life than a negative one.
624. Lola P 10/1/2007
I’ve learned that hanging on to the past won’t make my present better.
And what have I learned this year?
Everything happens for a reason – we just don’t know at the time what the reason might be.
I’ve also learned that people are much more important than email – so if you’re reading this outside of work hours, put the PC down and go and spend time with those people who really matter to you…
