This is probably ridden with clichés but I just couldn't help myself.
I’ve learnt to be thankful;
For big things,
For little things,
I’ve learnt to be patient;
Knowing that things will definitely and always work out.
I’ve learnt to believe;
In myself, knowing that anything I set my heart & mind to, I can do.
In God, knowing that everything I ask in faith, He can do.
I’ve learnt my strengths and my weaknesses;
Knowing to accept the things I can not change and striving to make better the things I can.
I’ve learnt to persevere;
Knowing that I’ll come out stronger after every hurdle.
I’ve learnt that though we are separated by boundaries, borders and language;
We are all the same.
I’ve learnt to make meals from almost anything,
And ‘veggies’ aren’t so bad.
I’ve learnt to listen more and talk less;
There’s a lot to be learnt from holding my tongue.
I’ve learnt to forgive;
Life is too short to dwell on things that don’t matter.
I’ve learnt that there are good people and better people;
Why worry about the not-so good people?
I’ve learnt that;
To receive, I have to give and
To give, I have to receive.
I’ve learnt to focus, aim and shoot;
With my mind and my camera.
I’ve learnt to let go;
Knowing that the universe is watching over and will take care of me.
I’ve learnt to Love;
Others, Life, Myself, My sister, My family and My God.
For without love, I am nothing and have gained nothing.
