Life teaches us new lessons everyday.
If we are open to see the lesson.
If we are open to experiencing the lesson.
Yet often we are not present to the lesson.
The lessons come to us in different ways.
They can be challenges.
They can be new relationships.
They can be misunderstandings.
Most of the time we create our own challenges.
Through the choices we make.
Through how we show up in the world.
We decide whether we will be difficult or easy with someone.
We choose to drop our expectations, or not.
We learn to open up, or close up.
Life will bring us what we need to grow.
Life is our medicine.
It is up to us to take the medicine.
It is up to us to learn the lessons.
It is our free will to decide to grow or stagnate.
We all have the choice.
We all can choose to ignore the lessons, or to embrace them.
Yes, it may not be easy to embrace the lessons.
Yes, it can be painful to take a real, close look at ourselves.
And yet if we do, the reward is a more fulfilled life.
A more joyful life.
A more actualized life.
