A Sure Thing

The more you learn about yourself, the more you will be faced with challenges that will stretch you.

That's what life is about.

Learning is a sure thing.

Learning and change are constant.  They never take a break.

Like when you were a child and you started to read.  As soon as you mastered the easy books, you moved up a level and began to read small chapter books.  Once that level was conquered you could move on to bigger books with smaller typing and more indepth storylines.  You didn't stop.  You kept going, challenging yourself to the next level.

Now some of life's challenges are a bit more intense than the challenge of a new book, but they are necessary in moving you forward.

Recently, I've done some waking up to truths about myself that need some addressing, and just like magic there were experiences that showed up to help me along.  Challenging?  Yes.  Exhausting?  Yes.  Frustrating?  Yes.  Necessary?  Absolutely!

Have you ever experienced a sudden onset of one thing after another after another?  First, your washing machine breaks, then you are snubbed by your best friend, you bump your head or you experience a fender bender on your way to the grocery store.

All of these seemingly little things have come into your reality to help you cement what you have learned about yourself.  Maybe you've just realized you love to over react, maybe you find you make a mountain out of a mole hill all the time (I myself suffer from this affliction quite often) and you want to change that behaviour. 

"Oh good!" says the Universe.

And then WHAM, BAM, Thank you Ma'am you are thrown into situations that have you 'practicing' non-reaction.

Isn't that GREAT!  {smile}

So, if you have been walking along, minding your own business when suddenly you've been smacked with an onslaught of disturbing situations.  Take a look at what you have recently discovered about yourself, or what you have been praying for guidance about. 

Things don't just happen.  They happen for a reason and most often than not we are the ones who have asked for them to happen (though we thought they would look a bit differently than they do).
