Feel Good Friday: Life Lessons…

Okay, I went a bit crazy with this week’s Feel Good Friday post, but I couldn’t resist. Since I have SEVEN videos (yes count em…SEVEN!) I won’t write too much. Here’s what happened…

I began my search for today’s article and, on a whim, typed into my search “life lessons from a toddler”, and the first video popped up. I instantly knew that “life lessons” was the theme. I thought to myself, “If I’m truly going to do LIFE LESSONS, then I need lessons from all age groups.” So I have videos all the way from a toddler to an 80 year old to lessons about death.

Here’s a few of the lessons you’ll find in the videos:

  1. Have patience and don’t give up.
  2. Be grateful for what you have.
  3. You are a unique and rare beauty.
  4. Be aware of every day you’re alive.
  5. We teach people how to treat us.
  6. Potential can be explored, even when you think it’s too late.
  7. Be willing to seek help from others.

Onto the videos…So grab a cup of coffee or tea, sit back, relax and learn some life lessons. Whether you only watch one or you watch all seven, I hope you learn something and I hope you enjoy. Let me know which ones you watched and which was your favorite.

 God bless 🙏 Namaste!

About Tamara Hoerner (1349 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

    • Thank you so much! I truly appreciate your nomination. Technically, I am supposed to be award free, however, someone else nominated me for a different one not long ago, so, I’m going to accept. Thank you again, SO much. I do appreciate it. Look for my post next week. I’ll let you know when I post it.

      • I’m so sorry, I didn’t me to confuse you or anything. Let me try to explain. As you do these awards, you’ll find that many bloggers call themselves “award free”, for different reasons. For me, I like the awards to go to smaller, lesser known, beginner blogs. Having accepted several awards, I understand there isn’t an obligation to accept. Because I am “award free” I normally, politely, decline these awards. However, on occasion, I accept and use the opportunity to shed light on wonderful, smaller, beginning bloggers, such as yourself. An experienced blogger did that for me when I was just starting out, and I like to do that for others, as time permits. I hope that helps. Anyway, I’ll try to write the post sometime next week. Thanks again for the nomination. It truly does mean so much to me, honestly! God bless and have a great day! Namaste!

      • Hi Tamara, I am quite new only been blogging for 6 months but I have never actually heard any of the more experienced bloggers use the term AWARD FREE, so that is why I found your response odd. No worries, again no need to apologize, I was just curious to see what you meant by Award free. 🙂 Namaste!! Loved doing Yoga and ending with the word Namaste 🙂 Have a good one!!!


I'd love to know what you think!
