Our most persistent teachers

“Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.” ~Pema Chödrön

If you’re anything like me, you have probably found yourself facing a given challenge over and over and over again in slightly different guises until you finally learn whatever lesson it is that the challenge can teach you.

I’m finally learning to save myself a bit of heartache by seeking out all the lessons I can from each challenge the first time around to minimize the number of times I might need to repeat it. It not only makes life a bit easier, it keeps me learning all the time!

What lesson is life teaching you right now?
