LESSONS LEARNED! (Again!)
If there is a day that goes by when we don't learn a lesson, then we are not paying attention to what the Universe is trying to teach us. I know, I know! I sound like a broken record. I've said this exact same thing in previous posts. However, it is the truth! Each day brings valuable lessons, but we need to be receptive to these lessons.
So, what kind of lessons did I learn today? I have learned that there is no need to reach out to people whom God has closed the door on and has blocked completely out of our lives. If they were not right for us in the past, why would we think that they would be compatible with us in the NOW? Some people are not meant to stay our friends forever! People change and that is okay! Not everyone is going to like us forever. I have accepted this lesson, and I am leaving certain people in the past where God wanted them. There is no need to tell those people about the problems that we are facing today. If those people were nasty with you in the past, chances are that they will be nasty with you in the NOW regardless of the dark situation you may be facing.
Another lesson I have learned today is there are people in the world who think the world of you! Sometimes we forget this fact. God has a way of reminding us of this fact when we feel that we are all alone in this world. We are not! There is at least one person in this world who loves you dearly! You should remind yourself of this fact every single day!
One last lesson for this day! When we are facing a struggle, a dark cloud, a troubling situation....whatever you want to call it.....don't think negatively about your circumstances. As humans, we sometimes tend to think that the worst is going to happen. We immediately want to tell everyone what we are facing. We want sympathy from our friends and family members. We want people to care what we may have to face in the near future. However, what if we never have to face the circumstances that we invent in our own minds. So, the last lesson I learned today is we don't have to share every detail of what we are facing with everyone around us. Once we receive the final outcome then we can share the information with our loved ones, but why worry them if the sun shines through our dark tunnel more quickly than we anticipated!
