Fandango is the host of Fandango Provocative Question
Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question.
From the early days of our youth we are taught valuable lessons from our parents, grandparents, and other family members. As we grow, we learn from our teachers, our friends, our clergy, our spouses, our bosses, and maybe even from our own children.
So this weeks provocative questions asks you to look back at your life and ponder this question:
What is the most valuable lesson you’ve learned in life and who did you learn it from?
Life has taught me lots of lessons. Lessons that have helped me tremendously in coping with what was coming next.
There are many who have helped me learn valuable life lessons. The first one was my father. He taught me the value of love and kindness. He was the kindest man I know. Always concerned about everyone around him and trying to help whoever needed or asked for his help. I learned from him how to be humble and humane. After the loss of my mother, he was the one who filled that gap. All the values that have been ingrained in me came from him.
When I got married, I found another great teacher in my late father-in-law. He was a unique personality. His mission in life was to tell people how they could live the best life. He wasn’t a preacher, but a teacher who wanted to share his life experiences with others. What I learned from him was how to train my mind so that I can live a better life. He always advised me to do my best and leave the rest to God. Under his training, I stopped being hypersensitive to the vibes around me. I learned not to stress out too much and have faith in God.
I was very lucky to have a generous and very loving mother-in-law as well. She loved me like a daughter and my children were loved so much by her. She set up an example for me. A very kind woman who never spoke ill of anyone, ready to enjoy life and laugh out loud at jokes.
These are some of the people who have influenced me in my life.
