It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, succeed or fail. There are lessons to be learned along the way.
When we are young, we are continually learning. Most of us have some kind of preconceived notion that once we finish school, we will stop learning and begin living. The opposite is true. We are living when we are learning.
Life is a journey, and along the way, if we do what we are supposed to, we will grow in wisdom, faith and love. These are not necessarily independent.
When we fail at something, we must figure out what went wrong and try again and be successful. It may take many attempts, but eventually, we will have learned what we need to, and we will succeed. With that success comes growth in knowledge. We know more than we did at the beginning of that particular journey.
When we succeed, we are also learning. We must learn to live in a new light, not as someone who has tried and failed but as someone who has succeeded. Many people understand that initial success is temporary, and we need to keep taking action if we want to continue to be a success.
We also need to learn how to live our success. What we do with it is ultimately up to us, but nothing is more rewarding than giving back and helping others in their journey. We learn that we can afford to be more giving, more charitable.
Wisdom only comes by doing; we do, and we learn, and we increase our knowledge along the way. As we begin to understand what works and what doesn’t, what brings joy, and what brings pain, we grow in proficiency.
The same thing comes with faith. As we get older, if we continue to study and pray, we grow closer to God. We become more loving and compassionate, and we start to understand that life is a gift and we are meant to serve others, to use our talents for the benefit of others.
Ultimately if we pay attention, we also begin to love ourselves for who we are. We accept every struggle, every hurt and pain as part of our journey, leading us to where we are. These are the things that make us stronger. We are all beautiful and loved, not despite of but because of our imperfections. They are what makes us unique.
There are a plethora of lessons to learn as we journey through our life. When we do not learn the lesson, we repeat the events until we do. Sometimes, this can be painful as we struggle to overcome the challenges presented to us.
Once we have learned the lesson, we move on to the next piece in our evolution as human beings. This is how we grow in wisdom, faith and love.
Remember, in everything you do, every year of your life, for as long as you live, there are lessons to be learned.
