Do you realize how many things you learn every single day? They are not all super big life changing amazing transformational things. But we learn things every day we exist. Paying attention and acknowledging them is part of your journey to knowing what works and does not work in your life.
See, we can divide what we learn into two neat categories: what works for us and what does not work for us.
It truly is that simple.
What did you learn today that you can now say works for you?
What did you learn today that you can now affirm does not work for you?
A few years ago, I was one of the drifters through life who picked up learning like dust molecules – not actively aware they were there and mindlessly brushing them off periodically. Feeling of missing something began to appear in my life. I felt like I was just not doing and being exactly what I ought to be, and clueless as to what to do about it.
I found myself at the beginning of an awakening within.
Actively engaging in the experiences already in play in life, learning naturally followed. And this time, there was no nagging dust bunny sensation. It was a full color energetic enlightening.
Each day I consider the experiences, sometimes as they arrive, sometimes in the middle, sometimes after they have passed. The gift is knowing my assessment of what I learn is as authentic as it can possibly be from where I am in time and place.
Today I learned that cranberry juice still works to stave off a urinary tract infection. I also learned that I can watch Trailer Park Boys, 3rd Rock from the Sun and God is Not Dead on Netflix all in the same day and connect with each one of the ideologies portrayed.
I also learned that not eating regularly does not work for me, it gives me a headache. I also learned that missing a class I love and having to listen to the recording is not nearly as satisfying.
Spend some time and ask yourself daily:
What did you learn today that is working for you?
What did you learn that tells you what is not?
