Boy have I learned things from my yesterdays ….. lessons learned, some huge hurts, and the ability to shrug things off and move on. This is what life is all about.
As Einstein said “The important thing is not to stop questioning”
I could not agree with him more on this piece of advice.
It is quite a process to do the work to find out who you really are – your authentic self. To learn to set great boundaries, and to learn to let things go that are not so good for your overall well being. I was not real good at setting boundaries and at times felt as though I was walking on egg shells trying to keep my balance. Often it’s the deepest pain which empowers you to grow into your highest self. As you do so it opens up space to let the things in that really matter to you. Not what others think should be important to you.
Walt Disney said: We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
I have learned to enjoy the journey I am on with all of it’s twist and turns. Some times not so pleasant but needed just the same. Sometimes moments of pure joy like the birth of my grandsons and being allowed to be right there when they blessed this world with their presence.
I have learned to celebrate each moment for it is a gift. With that gift comes the ability to learn, forgive, compassion, love, letting go, understanding, and non-judgement. It’s there, we just have to remember it’s our gift to use.
My journey is not over – I have much to learn, experience, and enjoy for this path that I am on is a lifetime process.
