Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
Don’t miss out on today’s learning experiences
They won’t come again. We will never have another day exactly like today, so let’s take advantage of the lessons we’re offered.
We don’t like to make mistakes, and we don’t like to be in situations that are fraught with stress, but mistakes and distress seem to go along with being human and alive. Both can be turned into sound learning experiences.
We don’t learn if we try to deny or ignore the situation we don’t like or don’t handle well. How much better if we can accept the difficulty, see how we have contributed to it, and arrive at a positive course of action. And how often it helps to talk about the problem with someone else instead of pridefully insisting on muddling through alone. Very likely, we will discover that today’s richest learning experiences are those we share with others.
I will accept the lessons today offers and share them with someone else so that we both can grow.
