I've Learned

In just a few days, I will be celebrating my 55th birthday. This has caused me to do much reflection these last few weeks on what have I learned during this past half century plus? What lessons have I carried through to share with others? Who have I loved and who have I lost along the way? What mistakes have I made and how have I turned them around to work to my advantage?


I have lived a very rough life throughout my years. I have had failures, massive mistakes and hurts beyond explanation. I have experienced more negative aspects of life than most families combined do in a lifetime. Then I ask myself, 'Why me?" And the answer comes back the same, "Why not me?".


My experiences all had a purpose, even if I didn't see it at the time. My life had a purpose, again, even if I didn't see it at the time. My lessons (which is the word I use instead of mistakes or life's tragedies and atrocities) have been exactly as it was mapped out for me. All of these lessons were necessary to create the person that I am today. All of these lessons are a part of me that gives me the ability to have compassion and to hold others in my realm. My lessons have taught me how to love, to forgive, to heal, to give, to receive and to share.


Each one of us has something that we have carried through our life and many still have not let go of the past. When you finally get the energy or the courage to let it go, watch out as your life will dramatically change for the better. Some people don't know how to live with an uncomplicated and messed up life. Some people enjoy being in that state - if they didn't why then don't they just forgive the situation and move on?


I can wholeheartedly say that my life is amazing and my life is going in the exact direction that I desire now. I am doing the work I love. I am teaching, counseling, loving, giving and sharing. It is a truly inspirational and peaceful life. Why didn't I learn these lessons sooner - when I was a child? or when I was a teenager? or when I was a young adult? Why wait until now?
