“Some lessons can’t be taught. They simple have to be learned.”
~ Jodi Picoult
“There are certain life lessons that you can only learn in the struggle.”
~ Idowu Koyenikan
“There are so many things you can learn about, but you’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.”
~ Dr. Seuss
“The past is a place of reference, not a place of residence; the past is a place of learning, not a place of living.”
~ Roy T. Bennett
The past many months have been daunting, in heaps of ways and with volumes of change. And the pages continue to turn with the opportunity for new reflections. I’ve been asking myself countless questions. How do I edge my way along and to what? What lessons did I learn or did I miss the lessons? Am I okay? Do I want or need the same old same old? Is this a time to make significant transformations or to quietly adjust? I’m questioning relationships, obligations and responsibilities. What can I let go of?
Lessons span our emotional, intellectual and physical being and can affect our internal and external experience. Lessons are an important component of changing the world. Lessons are a way to welcome new paths. This is a time to learn from the past, make room for the present and create a thoughtful future.
