In fact, most of the time
I don't have a clue what I'm doing.
My personal mantra this month is:
"Quit complaining, see the good, move forward."
And it stems from something that happened to my daughter 2 weeks ago:
She was late for the bus, because she was dismissed late from class - all due to the epic snowstorm and postponed Valentine's class party, and a late-start for school. And, well everything happening late.
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that."
I stood stupefied and asked more questions.
"It's a quote" she said "from Martin Luther King Jr. And I think what he meant was, to try and see things from the other person's view. And getting angry at my bus driver would've just made things worse, so I thought the only way to make things better was to show her love. So I gave her my Valentine's candy, and thanked her for waiting for me today. Even though it was wrong for her to have yelled at me, and to have treated me that way. I wanted to show her kindness, so she could be kind to others."
That day. My nine year old daughter taught me a life lesson. (As she often does.)
Learning comes in all forms. So pay attention and listen.
Your teachers, your gurus, and life's inspiration surround you always. You just have to open your heart and listen.
