The No.1 Lesson I’ve Learned in 2011.
I have learned many lessons this year but one stands out the most. I can’t get away from it; everywhere I go it keeps popping up.
The last straw was at the women fellowship I had in my house in October. Finally, I got it and received it.
I can’t help wondering, why did it take me till October to finally get it? All along it was staring me in the face though?
I know the reasons why it took that long. I got busy with life and wasn’t paying attention. The other real reason was I didn’t want to face the truth.
Towards the end of each year I take a review of the entire year. I am doing exactly that around this time now.
There are many lessons to be learned this year, if you and I have been paying attention. If you have been present and honest in your life with yourself, you must have seen at least one lesson.
Well this year is no different from the rest and one particular lesson has been staring me in the face. I can’t avoid it any longer; its voice is getting louder and louder, calling my attention to it.
I mentioned in this post that we are the biggest obstacles to our personal growth. We give too much credence to the devil and blame our friends and family unnecessary. If we are truly being honest with ourselves we can easily see that we are the one standing in our own way.
Well I have discovered this year the No.1 reason why I get my feelings hurt. I see a common thread, common denominator in my life this year.
This year I have also learnt that I am not my feelings. I learnt to recognize my ego, pride at work especially when they are bruised and to understand that I am not my feelings. If we are paying attention to our feelings and don’t allow each of them to consume us, there will be less stress, misunderstanding, and noise in our lives.
So what is the No.1 lesson I have learned this year? Read all about it in the comment section!
