Waiting for the Lesson :: Weekly Inspiration 12

Pema Chodron quote, learn from your life, there's a reason things don't go away


Nothing every goes away until it has taught us what we need to know. ~Pema Chodron


Those lessons that keep repeating themselves, over and over again, are there for a reason.

Even though I curse them, like my shoes that I still never seem to put away and trip over again and again, swearing that one of these days I will learn to put them away, the lessons remain until I learn what they aim to teach.

Messages I want to remember. But don’t.

Mistakes I continue to make. Even though I feel like I should know better.

Patterns I keep repeating. And repeating. And repeating.

Then, suddenly, mostly when I don’t expect it, the clouds part and the solution is right there in front of me, shining bright as the sun.

I can take a step forward, tentatively, ready to greet the world with fresh eyes, changed, if only in a small way.
