June, the month of graduations. For at least 12 years we attend school, take exams to see if we learned the material that was taught and then advance or do the lesson again.
Life is a much larger school – education is more extensive. Helpful tools to use while navigating life school are introspection, self-awareness and action to be the best person we can be. If we pay attention in life school, we continue to get lessons; some easy, some difficult. We are tested over and over again to see if we’ve learned what can be applied to a different situation down the road.
When life school comes to an end we inherently know if we failed, graduated by the skin of our teeth or did well. Our behaviors and self-knowledge through the years becomes our diploma.
Congratulations to all the 2018 school graduates. And to those paying attention in life school, I wish you easy lessons ahead!
