Things I've Learnt

I have learnt...

I have learnt that to be a man, a REAL man, is definitely not a day's job.

I have learnt that a degree certificate (of whatever level) is just a piece of paper. Necessary, yes, but a frigging piece of paper nonetheless. Well, in Nigeria anyway.

I have learnt that beauty and brains aren't enough, and that money and connections may still not do it, either. Luck - good, old LUCK - and God's favor are what you really need.

I have learnt that there's absolutely nothing amusing about being broke.

I have learnt that disappointments will come - small ones, big ones, REALLY big ones - over and over again. You just have to get used to them.

I have learnt that a big smile and a bit of humility can save you hours, or even days, of procedural bottlenecks.

I have learnt that helping out a complete stranger is a blessing in itself.

I have learnt that sometimes, following my heart instead of my head, is really the wise thing to do. It may not bring me profit, or respect, or even love...but it gives me peace.

I have learnt that one of the saddest things that can happen to a man is having no money to send to his mother.

I have learnt that being angry with your lot in life is a huge waste of time.

I have learnt that having just one good friend during trying times makes it a lot easier.

I have learnt that sometimes its ok to be an idiot; nobody is created perfect, anyway.

I have learnt that true happiness lies somewhere between inner peace, the touch of a loved one, and a couple of bucks in your pocket.

I have learnt that life is useless if you don't have anyone to share it with.

And lastly, i've learnt that in the long run - in the long, long run - love truly conquers it all.

I like this post. I'd say its hard to get used to disappointment so I think the thing to do is to learn to handle them when they come, cost come they will.
