Here Is Your Assignment [December Newsletter]

We can’t believe it either – but happy December mums! Scroll further below to see what is happening this month on mumbox,

BUT FIRST – we found this amazing piece below while on Pinterest, it says written by ‘anonymous‘ so were not sure where or when it was written.

However, the words hit home (especially No 4 and 7) so we really wanted to share it with you too, see below.

Have you seen this before mums? Comment below and let us know which ones really stood out for you x


1. You will receive a body. You may like it or not, but it will be yours for the entire period this time around.

2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called life. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error, experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately ‘works’.

4. A lesson will be repeated until it is learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it, then you can go on to the next lessons.

5. Learning lessons does not end. There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

6.”There” is not better than “Here”. When your “there” has become “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will, again, look better than “here”.

7. Others are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need, what you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

9. The answers lie inside you. The answers to life’s questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen and trust.

10. Whether you think you can or you can’t. In either case, you’ll be right.

    8. What you make of your life is up to you. .. this one really hit home because after all I have a choice in almost everything as long as I’m still alive … choice is always there

      What you make of your life is up to you. I relate to this so much,the past 2 years has been a Rollercoaster for many of us,I was Retrenched last year and for the 1st time in my life I just didn’t know how I will survive but I just had to be positive and decided to register so I can continue with my studies and guess what ladies I got a job I’m starting in January. So it’s really true what you make of your life it’s entirely up to you,I could have chosen to stay depressed and do nothing but I chose to do something so my life will change for the better.
