I believe that in this “School of Life” we are here to learn lessons. There are many life lessons for us to embrace before we “graduate”. That’s precisely why we signed on for this earthly journey. We wanted to grow more loving, more tolerant, less addicted, etc. We find ourselves in designed situations giving us options to choose. Our life is made up of choices, small choices we make everyday to become a better person and be a better earthly citizen. And if by some chance we miss an opportunity to learn and grow, life gives us second chances until we GET it! Here is a small example. As I was on my morning walk I noticed a dirty plastic cup on my path. I glanced at it as I walked by rationalizing that I didn’t want to get my hands dirty carrying around this germ-infested cup. Who knew who drank out of it? Totally missing the opportunity to be a “good citizen” I continued on. About 30 minutes later I almost fell over a beer can directly in my way. I had to laugh as I picked it up finally getting the lesson. God, in His all-loving ways, will give us as many opportunities and as many lifetimes that we need to GET IT. As I wrote “A Change of Habit” I was overwhelmed at the many missed opportunities to learn the lesson of “where is God”? I kept looking for Him “outside” when all the time He was “inside”. I think I may be a slow learner. I pray everyday that I will learn my lessons quickly and easily. The book “A Change of Habit” was featured at the “I Can Do It” conference in Melbourne, Australia on August 18-19th. This book gets around more that I do!
