8 Lessons Learnt…

chrstal blue ball2

I have found that everyday in life there is a lesson to be learnt, sometimes its subtle, sometimes apparent other times it comes in a whisper on the waves of a loved one preparing you and contributing in your growth as a person or it may come flying out of the mouth of someone who cares little about you or your feelings, either way the lesson comes and if we are in the right state of mind of readiness we get it and if not it passes us by only to come again in another place, another time, another circumstance.

This New Year has reignited some truths of lessons learnt. It’s gentle reminder begs for mindfulness to not forget or become complacent less the course in relearning will commence.

A Gentle Reminder of lessons learnt:

  • To remain open to learning new things
  • To be willing to teach what I have already learnt from roads travelled to those willing to listen
  • That at any given time in life regardless of circumstance, socio-economic standing, geography, religion, tradition, culture or ethos we will be in either of two positions: mentor/teacher or student/apprentice and those positions can shift indiscriminately .
  • To be astute enough to understand that what we learn, if we are prepared to learn it and share if we willing to share it, is determined by our readiness to be accountable, embrace change while leaving space for the acceptance of things as they are and not as we desire, will or assume them to be.
  • That all things big or small in our lives is influence and transformed when we exercise our free will and choice on how it will impact and determine our future.

    "To be astute enough to understand that what we learn, if we are prepared to learn it and share if we willing to share it, is determined by our readiness to be accountable, embrace change while leaving space for the acceptance of things as they are and not as we desire, will or assume them to be"

  3. I think sometimes you have to learn how to learn. You have retain the lessons that are presented to you. It's like the old saying about heeding the lessons of history. If you don't, you are doomed to repeat the same mistakes.

  5. Very, very nice! Learning to count is good but learning WHAT counts is even better. Life has many lessons to teach us and we should embrace them all. Plus, every time I learn something new it pushes some old stuff out of my brain! :)

  6. True, each day brings to us a new lesson for growth and betterment. No day is ever wasted, be it simply sitting by the window and watching a mother bird feed her brood or feeling the breeze on our face. There’s a lesson tucked up in there somewhere. Ours is to seek it out and be taught by it.

    Lovely post. Thanks for sharing. God bless you and your family.

  7. Beautiful post – very reflective and hopeful! This section resounded the most for me: “That at any given time in life regardless of circumstance, socio-economic standing, geography, religion, tradition, culture or ethos we will be in either of two positions: mentor/teacher or student/apprentice and those positions can shift indiscriminately .” – I had a coworker once tell me that they were proud of never “needing” a mentor in their education or career because they could do everything they ever needed to do by themselves or they’d just teach themselves how to do it… as if there was nothing that could be learned from someone that you couldn’t find out for yourself. It really changed how I viewed them from that point forward.

    I hope you had a wonderful holiday!
