Sometimes it’s just living that teaches the best lessons.
Maybe that meant learning the hard way that you shouldn’t run beside a pool. Learning that people will absolutely let you do everything for them without reciprocating if you don’t set boundaries, first. Perhaps that dating the “bad boy” always ends badly. Or that you have to advocate for yourself in seeking a promotion because your boss might not actually want to let you go. That molasses is not an adequate substitute for honey in cooking. Even better that you need to “trust but verify” when someone gives you information.
We live and we learn. And, if we’re wise, we let these lessons mold us into a more enlightened version of ourselves.
Today I am grateful for life’s lessons. Even the tough ones. What are you thankful for today?
Have a wonderful day, everyone!
