17 Books Filled With Life Lessons

Learn about life from someone else’s years of experience.

Books are the closest thing we have to telepathic communication. It is just amazing that someone could record their thoughts, observations, and experiences on the pages, and then someone else, completely unrelated to them, might just read them and learn from them hundreds of years later! Just think about it, It’s crazy!

By reading books, especially non-fiction books, we can pick apart the author’s brain and actually learn from their experiences. Experiences we probably never had, and might never have, but the knowledge of which we acquire and leaves us with the wisdom to confront similar situations if they ever happej. There’s no exaggeration in saying that by reading these books you can learn valuable life lessons to apply to your own.

#4 Poetic Justice: Lessons of love, life & relationships by Tami Belt

Lessons of love, life & relationships by Tami Belt
These pages hold a lifetime of lessons learned about love, life and relationships. Poetic Justice is not a typical book designed for reading from beginning to end but as individual pages that beckon your soul at a particular moment in time.

Chapters are organized by topic, not chronologically. Like a diary entry, each poem represents my innermost insights and feelings during a moment in time. Each entry is anonymous because lessons live on unlike some relationships.
