I had a great correspondent in our school. And he used to say that the small small things for which we dont pay great attention are the important things in your life. And now I realize that what he said was true. So have you had any of those experiences?????Please share.....

for me, the greatest lesson i learned from school is that, no one can ever help us all the time but ourselves only. i ponder to this idea before, and i realized that it's only to myself whom i can depend on. i cant depend to others all my life, instead, i depend to my own self. i also learned that the best lessons in life are learned through experiences that we can never ever forget till we get old and die.

Well, i always remember what my teacher said about the lessons we learn inside the classroom... she said that it is not how we memorize or how we answer the questin... it is knowing the discipline of how to succeed inside the four corners of the classroom that we will take with us... when we go out in the world... and i think she is totally right...

I learned that standing up for the underdog is good for the soul. I was an underdog myself and one day I watched a group of guys group up and start to harrass a fellow student. This upset me so much that without thinking about my own safety, I confronted the group about their behavior. Before that time I was afraid of what others thought of me and I was very quiet. As my daughters were growing up I taught them the lesson that I had learned and they are practicing that lesson today. I also learned that some of things that a teacher said to me were wrong and that I really was capable of going on with a higher education. I wonder where that teacher is today and if she ever regreted saying that to me. Have a wonderful day!
