Life is a Succession of Lessons


From the day you were born, your life has been and will continue to be a succession of lessons about your changing self. This rapid change will continue for a few more years as you enter young adulthood. You will learn to form adult relationships, develop a mature self-concept, and choose your life’s’ work. For most people, however, change becomes more gradual as they grow older.

It has been said that life is the most patient teacher. You will be presented with the same experience over and over until you learn the best way to deal with the situation.. This is not because life is cruel. Rather, it is because things have a way of coming back to haunt us when we don’t deal with them. One form of intelligence is the ability to learn from mistakes. When you are presented with a painful experience, take the time to think about how you can avoid it in the future.

Life is the sum of experiences that we encounter as we go through life. Day to day struggles and triumphs are experienced by all of the world’s creatures. As human beings, when we encounter a challenge, we have freedom to choose how to react. Every decision that we make leads us down a different road. We will never come to exactly the same crossroads. Every decision the we make has significance. The tiniest choice that we make reverberates throughout the entire universe. This is an example of a lesson learned.
