Do you ever feel like you keep learning the same lesson over and over, to the point where you finally say something like, "When am I going to learn?" Do you ever find you are frustrated with your self or your circumstances because you feel like you are on repeat? I would challenge you to learn. Don't just keep living your life... learn from it. Life is constantly offering us great opportunities to learn and to grow from. We don't grow when we do not learn. Challenge yourself, the next time you go through something, especially involving great discomfort or loss, ask yourself what you learned from it, and also what you could have or what you will try to do differently next time. We are in such a hurry these days that we do not take the time to learn and to grow. It does take time, time to reflect and to slow down so we can observe and think about what it is that we are learning and doing. Journaling is a great way to begin to track and make sense of ourselves and our experiences. Tracking your mood is a simple and easy place to start. Each day at the bottom of your calendar, draw a face or a symbol of your overall mood and then jot some notes (even bullet points will do) about your experiences that day.
We hope you are encouraged to keep living and to go a step further, LEARN.
Thanks for reading and take care everyone!
