Life Lessons We Learned
From the Internet
From the Internet
Fridays are wonderful days for reflection on the week behind us. Looking back at some of the best gifs on the Internet this week, we think we might be able to learn some valuable lessons to carry with us into next week.
Let’s take a look at nine of the best gifs from this week that taught us valuable life lessons.
1) Stay focused on your goals.
It’s obvious the man in this gif let his guard down and paid the price. Whether you’re riding your bike or finishing a project at work, stay focused on your goals and never get distracted. Otherwise you might end up on the side of the road like this guy.
2) Don’t trust everything you see.
These frogs were easily tricked into thinking they found a feast of worms. Once one frog was fooled, others followed and fell for the same trick. Don’t trust everything you see; if something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
3) Follow your dreams.
Every once in a while we need a reminder that we can do anything, no matter our age. The man in this gif, who we can only assume is the father, didn’t let his son’s age stop him from shredding on his skateboard. Whether you’re still in diapers or about to retire, don’t be afraid to pursue your passions.
4) Don’t wear yourself out.
Obviously this kitten is trying a bit too hard to get comfortable. If something isn’t working for you, try looking at it from another angle or take a break from the problem and come back to it. No use working yourself to death on a problem that can’t be fixed.
5) Be a friend to everyone.
You never know where you’ll find your next best friend. This guy was brave enough to befriend a lion and it looks like it worked out for him. We’re not suggesting you make friends with predatory animals, but don’t be afraid to branch out and meet people you otherwise wouldn’t.
6) Stay positive.
Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, things don’t seem to go our way. Life will often knock us off our feet or throw us to the ground. Learn a lesson from this mascot and keep a smile on your face no matter how many times life gets you down.
7) Share kindness.
The next time you want to shout at a co-worker or send a flaming email to your boss, remember this sheep who turned his anger into a touching moment. Take a deep breath and turn your anger into kindness and you might just make a new friend..
