Learning the hard way

“Never regret. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience.”

– Victoria Holt (1906–1993), British writer
Everyday we’re learning something in life, whether it’s new tip or trick, or learning something new about someone else, we are always absorbing knowledge, even if we try not to, its just natural and a constant learning curve, if you master something, we still want to learn more and be even better it’s about self improvement and becoming a student of life.

I have always had a tendency to be somewhat of a student of the school of hard knocks.  The tuition is typically cheaper, but the lessons learned often cost more in the long run.  This certainly has been the case for me this week. 

Two important things I learned this week:  never count your chickens before they hatch.  And, never take your friends for granted, they may not always be there.  My friends are a very valuable asset to me and I was so hurt when I learned that my actions had upset one of my friends.  I was so afraid to pick up the phone and say "I'm sorry". But in the end, that is exactly what I did.  Fortunately, I was able to make this situation right. As for the other lesson, that one is the most costly and will not be as easy to fix, but I'm hopeful that it will be corrected VERY SOON!!

What life's lessons have you had to learn the hard way??


  1. I like this post! I thought I'd better come check you out....and I am now a new follower :D YAY! I love thinking that life is one big journey where the point is to learn lessons and evolve as human beings.

    I have learned too many lessons the hard way but the most recent one is don't have pre-marital sex and if you do, use a condom ;) lol but I love my son!
