Blog Exercises: Life Lessons

Blog Exercises on Lorelle on WordPress.We all have life lessons, lessons from a life well-lived and experienced, we carry with us. Some we learn on our own, and others are taught to us by others.

In “Lessons Learned from Dahni, The Eyeless Wonder Cat” I shared some powerful life lessons taught to me by this little blind cat who was with us for such a short time and changed our life deeply.

When we humans chase our goals, isn’t it amazing how the smallest obstacle can stop us in our tracks? How many times have you been halted in pursuit of a worthy cause only to stand there and wonder why you were doing this, was it worth it, what good will it do, and why bother? Or maybe you think that this was some “sign” that you shouldn’t be going in this direction and another one might be better? Or you just stand there, frozen and unable to figure out what to do as all the options might keep you from your goal or might help you actually achieve it? I know I’m guilty.

What if we humans, the supposedly more superior animal, lived our life like Dahni, letting nothing get in the way of accomplishing our goals? Wonder what our lives would be like?

If a blind cat can teach me profound lessons and change my life, you can do the same for others.

Since the beginning of time, our stories have molded the world around us, influencing our community members (when you see that big cat, run in the opposite direction) with our shared experiences, the stories we tell of how we interact with the world and survive to tell the tale.

Consider your blog the fire pit of the modern world, a place to share stories.

Blog Exercise Task from Lorelle on WordPress.Your blog exercise today is to blog your life lesson(s).

It may be a single life lesson, something that you learned that changed the course of your life and will benefit others. Or it may be a list of things.

Share with your readers the lessons you have learned in life over a single post or multiple posts in a series. Take them on the journey of how you learned the lesson, the struggles that brought you to this life lesson, and what you learned and how it impacted their life.

You never know who is paying attention to your posts, and this one could change the world as well as a single life.

If you blog your life lessons, remember to include a hat tip link back to this post to create a trackback, or leave a properly formed link in the comments so participants can check out your blog exercise task.
