25 Wise Life-Learnings

I recently found read some pretty cool 'Life Learnings' that made me smile, smirk, and sad in equal measures. I found myself nodding and agreeing with most everything, but here are the ones that hit home hard. 

Btw, I found this from a really cool website. Some of the stuff in there is worth the read. Especially if, like me, you're one of those introspective (read over-analy-zy) types!

  1. It is a hundred times more difficult to burn calories than to refrain from consuming them in the first place.
  2. The cheapest and most expensive models are usually both bad deals.
  3. A good nine out of ten bad things I’ve worried about never happened. A good nine out of ten bad things that did happen never occurred to me to worry about.
  4. When you break promises to yourself, you feel terrible. When you make a habit of it, you begin to hate yourself.
  5. You can’t change other people, and it’s rude to try.
  6. If everyone in the TV show you’re watching is good-looking, it’s not worth watching.
  7. Whenever you’re worried about what others will think of you, you’re really just worried about what you’ll think of you.
  8. If you never doubt your beliefs, then you’re wrong a lot.
  9. Nobody has it all figured out.
  10. Whenever you hate something, it hates you back: people, situations and inanimate objects alike.
  11. People embellish everything, as a rule.
  12. Putting something off makes it instantly harder and scarier.
  13. Nobody knows more than a minuscule fraction of what’s going on in the world. It’s just way too big for any one person to know it well.
  14. Everyone you meet is better than you at something.
  15. Knowledge is belief, nothing more.
  16. There are not enough women in positions of power. The world has suffered from this deficit for a long time.
  17. What makes human beings different from animals is that animals can be themselves with ease.
  18. If you aren’t happy single, you won’t be happy in a relationship.
  19. “Gut feeling” is not just a euphemism. Tension in the abdomen speaks volumes about how you truly feel about something, beyond all arguments and rationales.
  20. It’s easy to make someone’s day just by being uncommonly pleasant to them
  21. Nothing — ever — happens exactly like you pictured it.
  22. It is worth re-trying foods that you didn’t like at first.
  23. Anyone can be calmed in an instant by looking at the ocean or the stars.
  24.  Life is a solo trip, but you’ll have lots of visitors. Some of them are long-term, most aren’t.
And one of my absolute favourites:

25. When you’re sick of your own life, that’s a good time to pick up a book.
