There are so many lessons in life that I struggle against. I want to feel that it is someone else’s job to study…not mine. “They”should change what I cannot accept.
Do I think I can escape the lesson if I resist it? Not really. I realize by now that if I dodge what is put before me, it will appear in another way at another time. Life is good at pop quizzes.
And I have such peace when I relinquish the struggle and am still. I am learning this along the way. To live my life, be mindful, and wait.
It is a waste of my mind to let it travel down the same roads over and over, looking for an answer that is evident if I stop searching for a way out and begin learning.
The answer always comes.
“Look to yourself,” it says.
