Benita's lesson for the day: "Life is the best teacher. Once you learn a lesson from life, you'll never forget it."
There are times in our lives that no matter what people say to us, we won't learn the lessons until we experience them for ourselves. It's not always a good thing because some lessons are more costlier than others. Sometimes the raw experience is the only way you'll learn a particular lesson. If you can learn from others' mistakes, it's always good to save yourself heartache, pain and disappointments. If not, life will teach you the lesson. It's not always pleasant or easy. The good news is that lessons are here to put us on the path to wisdom. Knowledge is power.
