We are all in it Together.

For the past several posts, I have shared with you several of the people who have had a significant impact on the course of my life. To do so I have shared some of my story. We all have a story and a collection of wonderful people who have helped to shape our lives. If there is one thing for sure about this life; it is that we are all in it together. For this post, I am going to share ten lessons about life I have learnt thus far. I am sure you will relate to them.

  1. We have no control over the time, location or situation of our arrival in this world. But having arrived we have both a purpose and responsibility.
  2. There is no way to live this life perfectly. We will not always make choices that work out well. But that is OK. We all are human.
  3. We will experience pain, heartache, loss; we will grieve. But that grief will carve a furrow deep into our hearts which in due season will overflow with joy.
  4. Some things we will never understand. But we must accept the situation as it is anyway and come to some terms of peace within ourselves.
  5. No one is going to knock on our door with this wonderful once in a lifetime opportunity. If they do be careful; it is most likely a scam.
  6. But we need to knock on doors. Not every door will open but for those which do, look inside. Do we want to go down that path?
  7. We need other people. People can and do help one another. Be humble enough to ask for help.
  8. Regardless of the risk of being hurt, keep an open heart. It is only an open heart which can give and receive.
  9. It is important to know how to receive and to express gratitude for our blessings. When gratitude is front of mind, blessings simply multiply.
  10. With out being foolhardy, take risks. I will close with my paraphrase of Ecclesiastes 11:1. Cast your bread on the waters and in due season it will return to you, buttered.
