Is there a common theme to the life lessons you are learning lately? I find that when I’m being taught something important, the message is usually repeated in different situations throughout my life. That way, I’ll pay attention – even if I don’t want to!
This happened recently at a personal development seminar where I was a participant. We were asked to list personal obstacles in our life journeys. Like a reflex, I wrote down ‘COURAGE’ and circled it. Though I didn’t understand why this word mattered to me, I was soon to get inklings.
Participants were asked to discuss the meaning behind what they had written down with others close by. We helped one another; I was shown that my ‘courage’ meant developing the strength to speak my story on a general level.
