Life Lessons Teach us to Change, to Grow, and to Become Better Beings!!!

Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking about the people who have walked out of my life because of who I used to be in the past. One time someone even told me how they didn't know my husband anymore, because he wasn't the same person he was when he was growing up and living at home with his parents. Well, I have to say that I am glad I am not the same person who I used to be when I was living at home with my parents. I was a child back then, and I was naive and my views of the world and people were very limited. If I were still the same person at 40 years of age who I was at 18 years of age, then I would have never learned any of life's valuable lessons.

With each new day and as the years pass by, we become different beings. We hurt, we struggle, we learn, and we grow. Life forges us into new creatures every single day. If a day goes by and if we have not learned a lesson, then we are not paying attention to what life is trying to teach us. I am grateful for who I used to be, because it led me to who I am today; however, the person I am today will lead me to who I will be tomorrow! Ever-changing! Ever-learning! Ever-growing!
