Making mistakes because you do not know any better is one thing, but to make them over and over is another. If this sounds familiar, you may require a needed course correction. If you are still wandering in the wilderness and cannot find your way out of the thick fog of Mistake City, maybe it is time to learn from the mistakes of others. It just may be time to take advantage of the wisdom from those who have been there and done that.

Time to stop recycling the same old mistakes, Life Lessons to Last More Than a Lifetime
By Ruby Hillsman
Ruby shares a collection of stories that people shared with her and things that happen to her. At the end of each story, she shares what she learned from them. Many stories are sad, some are happy and include stories that we all can associate with and understand. By being a listener, she has learned from her own mistakes and from others. She is making a point that if we learn to listen to other people's stories we can learn from the mistakes they made and learn from our own mistakes, life can be better and we will not make the same mistakes over again.
The stories she shares are all from life situations and most likely you may be able to relate to some of them from your own experience. The book is well written and enjoyable to read. For the young reader who may never have the opportunity to hear these stories, to the older reader who may have heard simpler versions of them, there something from all to learn and apply to their life.
Ruby encountered a large variety of people throughout her life. She met people at work, she was a nurse, people she met at gatherings and everywhere she went. Her goal in writing this book is to share these stories and things learned from those around us.

She shares from experiences in her own life as well as encounters with others. Many times, life gives us a break, e.g. when hospitalized, and during these times we get a chance to think and reflect about our lives. Sometimes the turning points come during a particularly hurting time. Ruby has put together many lessons from a wide variety of people, lessons that come in handy in many of life's situations.
Below are some of the things she writes.
Take the time to get to know people before formulating opinions of them. That first impression is not always what a person is about.
Making assumptions or forming opinions of others without knowing the facts is easy to do, but it's not necessarily a good quality to have.
It is important for a person to feel as good on the inside as they do on the outside, and that make-up is not to be a mask to hide what is within or for unresolved feelings and issues. Make-up is the icing on the cake should a person desire it.booksneeze
Giving others a second chance is a good thing to do. After a bad second encounter, I am not so sure.
If we learn to get in touch with our guts early in life, we can always depend on them, even when things do not make sense at the time. I have found that many of us usually regret not listening to our guts.
It is a good read, even for reading in bits and pieces.
