In less than three months, this year will be over! We asked 14 women, the greatest lessons they have learnt this year and here are the responses we got.
I have learnt to appreciate the gift of life. And I also learnt that it is important to cultivate the habit of saving money.
Everything on earth is vanity. There is more to life than going to work and making money. We should appreciate the gift of life, family, friends and loved ones.
Within a blink of an eye, everything and everyone can change. Save money.
To always plan ahead. To help people from the little you have. No matter how busy you are, create a time for you and your family to catch fun.
Live your best life today. Don’t take anything or anyone for granted. Isolation lifestyle is not good, no one is an island. It is important to have savings. Love God, love self, and love others.
This year taught me never to procrastinate. Whatever you want to do, do it immediately
Learn to save a little of your income for rainy days. Appreciate life as you see each day. Family is everything after God.
I learnt that now is the best time to do whatever I plan to do and to be grateful for what I have.
I learnt that in the blink of an eye everything can change. I learnt that I should be more kind to people. Never take anyone for granted. Everyone matters
Stop taking life and great people around you for granted. Have many streams of income.
No one knows tomorrow, make today count. A good and peaceful home makes life easier.
Speak up and get help with whatever issues you have instead of constantly dwelling on how terrible it is and how it makes you feel. It won’t go away that way.
I learnt that I can trust myself. I’ve survived so much and I will survive whatever is coming next. I also learnt that I don’t need a lot of things to be happy. I realized that all I really want is to live a simple life without worry or stress.
The biggest lesson I learnt this year is not to force anything; conversations, friendship, attention and love. Anything forced is not worth fighting for. Whatever flows, flows, what crashes, crashes. It is what it is.
The greatest lesson I learnt this year is that, knowing God personally is important. No matter how connected your pastor is to God, no matter how fire-branded he is, it is important that I know God for myself. Because a time will come in one’s life that only one’s personal relationship with God will sustain a person.
This year, I learnt to run my own race.
This lesson came from my wedding. I got married this year and during the preparations, my husband’s family left him to carry all of the responsibilities. Meanwhile, during his elder brother’s wedding, everything was provided for, including the outfit she wore for the events.
At a point during my own preparations, my husband’s family made it known that they were not going to contribute anything. It was so painful but I just kept calm. After the wedding, my mother-in-law called my mum and apologized for how they behaved. According to her, they didn’t expect me to be calm about everything.
For me, it just taught me to run my own race because I could have decided to outshine my brother in-law’s wedding, by all means, thereby, incurring debts that could be avoided.
