There are so many lessons to be learned in life.   We all need to learn them and we don’t all learn at the same rate.   Some of us repeat mistakes over and over again until we finally understand the lesson.  Then again, some lessons we learn are done so by watching others and their failures.

I have been thinking a lot about this as I prepare my talk for tomorrow.  My struggle with what I am going to say is real.   I want to save some people the heartbreak.   But what I am learning is that you can lead a horse to water but you cannot make them drink.

Lessons to be Learned

That you can reach out, but then you need to respect that each person has free will.   They may not do the things we wish that they do, that we know would make their lives easier.   We need to allow them to make those mistakes.   We also have to hold our comment “I told you so” when they admit to you that you were right.

Part of the human experience is to make mistakes, sometimes on a colossal level for our soul’s growth.  So the song Row, Row your boat comes to mind.   Perhaps my talk needs to be completely different…   We will see how it comes together….
