Passing the Class

Happy Friday to you! If you’ve had a challenging week then this is for you. If you’ve had a challenging month, year or life then this is for you.

I’ve had a challenging last 3 weeks. My three weeks have included a fender bender, being locked out of my home, breaking a light fixture, breaking my favorite candle, spilling the biggest container of laundry detergent, breaking and spilling an entire bottle of garlic powder, and finding out my mailbox locked was broken. Do you see the pattern yet?

Being in the school of hard knocks sucks. I didn’t pass at least 6 times. It was during the lockout that I sat down in front of my locked door and talked to God about what was happening. Why were the craziest things happening to me? I said it as if I was a victim having a pity party. The answer came immediately, slow down. Each one of those things happened because I was in a hurry. I was moving too fast, and I was impatient.

And when my locksmith came I received another answer. His wife had colon cancer and was battling her health not only due to cancer but treatments from chemo. As I listened to his story I realized that all those crazy things that had happened to me were nothing. They were like grains of sand that didn’t compare with his wife’s health.

What class are you in today? Are you getting it or repeating it? We will always repeat what we don’t learn. If you feel like a victim and are having a pity party that is fine too but just like all parties, it has to end because nobody stays around parties or people after the fun ends. Hope you pass class today and have a perfect weekend.
