Everyone we come across in our lives has the potential to be a teacher to us. Some lessons are enjoyable to learn. Other lessons involve pain, grief, and misery, and may take us many years to learn. That’s okay! It’s about the process, not JUST the end result. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US WILL ALWAYS BE A WORK IN PROGRESS.
It is important to remember that there is a lesson in all things, and that every person in our lives is there to help us learn something.
It is important to approach each day with a feeling of gratitude-especially towards others and their role in our lives as teachers.
Teachers introduce new things into our minds, and they remind us of things we have already learned. They are there to inspire and influence us.
Some of the best teachings in my life have come from moments shared with my children, where I thought I was teaching them something, then actually learned more from them than I ever could have taught them.
Relationships are filled with lessons. So is every-day life. Look for the lessons. Be grateful for the teachers. I have a growing belief that miracles are worked through others who are in our lives.
Today’s challenge for myself: Today I will thank someone in my life who is a teacher, who has taught me something new, or reminded me of something I already learned. I will express gratitude to anyone who has inspired or influenced me positively in any way.
