“A lesson will keep repeating itself until it is learned. Life first will send the lesson to you in the size of a pebble; if you ignore the pebble, then life will send you a brick; if you ignore the brick, life will send you a brick wall; if you ignore the brick wall, life will send you a demolition truck.”
I have been thinking a lot about this. This idea of learning from life experiences is really meaningful to me ( and probably to a lot of my post-grad peers) right now. Life seems to be coming at my fast and furious and sometimes I feel like I can’t quite figure which way is up. It makes me want to give up, call in sick and hide under the covers until someone tells me what the hell is going on next, but we all know that’s not really an option….most of the time.
The mis-matched life I’m currently leading has lead to some amazing, disappointing and fun lessons that I think I need to pay a bit more attention to. I need to work on squeezing a bit more JOY out of the pulp of life. Really make it work for me. Really fight for the europa in the regular.
I don’t know, I think it’s a phase, but I guess it’s better to learn from the phase before that demolition truck comes a-knockin’… right, people?
