17 Lessons Spongebob Squarepants Taught Us About Life
Be Prepared for Whatever Life Throws at You
The world of Spongebob is full of surprises. The show always zigs when you expect it to zag. Oftentimes, it’s Spongebob himself who causes these surprises. He jumps out of mailboxes to greet his mailman and finds ways to surprise both Patrick and Squidward.

Embracing the randomness of life is the best way to lead a happier, more meaningful existence. Spongebob taught us that.
