Good Friday - What's the Lesson?
This week I talked to one of my mentors about different life scenarios, happenings, etc. At the end of every conversation, she always ask me, "Vonne, what is the lesson you got out of this?" I think about it and always find myself learning something new.
As I've matured in my thinking and have been adding more notches to my wisdom belt, I do know for certain that there is always a lesson to be learned in every situation, whether good or bad.
So with that being said, with all of this "quarantined time," I truly believe that this is the time for everyone to reflect/hash out certain ares of our lives and to grab the lesson(s). We live in a society that is so hell-bent on the narrative of "being productive, you need to be hustling 24/7, burning the midnight oil, #TeamNoSleep" that it bothers us to actually sit still, both physically and mentally.
I'm not saying sleep every day away, eat everything you want and to go completely rogue. But, what I am saying is to take this time to think through personal things and to organize your thoughts/plans. Sometimes we carry more mental weight than we realize because we're constantly on the go.
I can't speak for everyone else, but for me personally, I'm going to come out of this more whole and healthier, and I don't mean just physical. Everything is going to work out. It might not be how we envisioned, but it will all come together. Small steps each day, and that's perfectly fine.
On that note, with it being Good Friday and such a beautiful day, think about the goodness of life itself, how strong you are and how far you've come as a person. This is just one bump in the road - that's life. And once you can understand that, life will start to become peaceful for you.
What's the lesson you're going to bring out of this?
Sending love and positive vibes your way,
