Lessons learned in life is my story of stubbornness and immaturity because I was not always in a spiritual place. 

There was a time and {I expect it happens to us all}, that I thought I knew what was right for me only to learn that I spent most of my life in self-sabotage. In some way I guess I knew that I was not on the path I wanted to be on but I did not know how to get there.

In my consciousness, I knew that there was more to me than I was experiencing. I knew what I wanted to do I could see it but I did not have the right guidance to get there.

The lesson is that you can still make mistakes and be forgiven.

Lessons Learned In Life!
So what did I learn?

I learned to get out of my own way!

I wish it was that easy but it did take time and humility. As much as I hate to admit it, the advice my father gave me was mostly right. Why?  Lessons learned in life. I do not know about you, but for me, I was a handful from my first memory.

I believe that we may never know why we did the things that we did and I am not sure it makes a difference. It seems like I spent a lifetime not living up to my potential, then another lifetime wondering why. Then another lifetime trying to change. It was not until I Let go and Let God, that I was able to start learning about myself. 

I once heard someone say: Everything you ever needed to know you learned in kindergarten.

I believe that we all know the right path, although sometimes we find it hard to get there. When we struggle it would be nice to have a support system Someone we can talk to and work things out with. Someone who is important to us, maybe a friend that will be honest with us.

I know from personal experience that walking away from all my friends that I grew up with was not easy. For me, it was necessary for me to find the support I needed to change. I needed to push past what seemed like another life and learn to live in a new and different world.

Yes! there are lots of wonderful gifts waiting for you when you are ready to accept them. Yes! I do see the world and my place in it differently now.

All the things that were once important to me no longer seem to fit with who I am. Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll were for someone I no longer know.

My best friend is my wife and I do not need outside stimulus to have a good time.

I wake up every day knowing that I am going to have a good day. I know people will come into my life and help enhance it. { They have always been there I just did not know to look.}

We can really make our dreams a reality, you just need to learn to let go.

Learn to expect the unexpected. Look at everyone that comes into your life as a gift. Either you will be the giver or you will receive. Yes! it is that easy if you train yourself to let go.

You really are someone special with special gifts. It is our birthright. We all need to learn to accept it.

The important thing is to learn a lesson every time you lose. Life is a learning process and you have to try to learn what's best for you. Let me tell you, life is not fun when you're banging your head against a brick wall all the time.
