Remember your life is YOUR classroom...

"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

I just finished looking at this blank page for the past 20 minutes, and although I knew exactly what this post was going to be about; I had the hardest time wanting to set it on paper.
Yesterday I got to talking candidly with one of my friend, about live, love, my beliefs, and her beliefs…beautiful conversation! In the mist of it, I told her “for me life is a classroom, every situation is a learning experience, nothing happens in vain and the only mistakes we as human make is not to learn from those mistakes and repeat them. We are predestined for a life of happiness and greatness but only “we” can take ourselves through and to our destiny”

In one of my earlier post I talked about “never elevate your partner on to a pedestal because you will be setting them up for failure as the steps leading to the platform of that pedestal are YOUR expectations, YOUR ideology of who they should be, YOUR conformities…”
I knew this applied to everyone in my lives not only my better half, but I choose to hang on to a few people who I believed belonged and deserved to be elevated. I modified the lesson I had learn for “exception” but yesterday I was proven again that ONLY GOD can stand tall at all time on and above any pedestal.

I stumbled hard and the visual of the disappointment I’m feeling is as if I’m looking at them falling down a 10 foot ladder and breaking no bone, but the reality is that I’m the one with disappointing feeling I’m the one with a broken feeling and all because instead of learning from my own lesson I chose to hold on to just a few whom I believe would never do wrong and could stay way up on that pedestal…I let myself down and that hurt.


“This is the beginning of a new day.
I have been given this day as I will.
I will use it for good because I’m exchanging a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever leaving in its place something that I’ve traded for it.
I want it to be a gain and not a loss. Good and not evil, success and not failure in order that I shall rejoice in the price I paid for it.”


As you begin your day, think of the new start you are about to create for yourself. What are you willing to leave behind for a better use of this new day to come?

Tap into your soul and remember to love always,
