School of Hard Nox
When I was in school, I hated it. I hated getting up in the morning, the early morning showers, and getting dressed. I also did not like home work, and foolish me got by without hardly doing mine at all. To this day I am suprised I graduated. The School of Hard Knocks or University of Hard Knocks is an idiomatic phrase meaning the (sometimes painful) education one gets from life's usually negative experiences, often contrasted with formal education Apparently I am one who has had to spend many years in this school. One does not appriciate what they have available to them till years later,and or they also loose them. This applies to relationships,things,and oppotunities we may have. Ofter the Dreamer has had to go through years of hard nox to learn many things about themselves,and how to make better choices
Responsibility Many learn as children through chores, school, then later in a job about responsibility We develop habits early on to be lazy,procrastinate, or to be diligent,work hard,be on time,care about what you do. If we do not learn, we learn the hard way through consequences, failures,loss, being broke, etc. Sometimes being responsible means doing things we do not feel like doing all the time, or even like. 2.Finances Either we learn how to be responsible,save,spend wisely, or we do not. Then life steps in. I can tell you every time I have really spent needlessly, or foolishly, something has always come up where I really needed the money, and had no other resources. I am today in debt because I am still having to learn this lesson. Did you know it is true, the borrower is servant to the lender. Credit, credit cards is a door to slavery if your not careful, and responsible. Debt is a major cause of divorces, of trouble hardships in family. In fact it has been cause of major stress so bad some end up ill, and some even end up in the hospital. If we cannot be faithful in small things, why would life allow us more?
Priorities- We are responsible when it is important to us, truly. Ask what is really important, what do you value most? I have had to do lists now and then to remind me of what really should my priorities be. Lessons this Dreamer has learned in the school of hard nox; 1.Becareful what you share with people. Know your friends well. Sometimes what you share is used against you. 2.Becareful what you say, gossip always comes back to bite you in the arse, in time. 3.Becareful with whom you share your real dreams and vision with. Not everyone will celebrate, or may be for you. 4 Not everyone is who they seem to be. 5 Developing character is more important than how many friends one has, or even impressing anyone. 6.Character is developed over time, and in hard times. 7.Who you are will eventually show. The masks eventually slip
