Focus on What’s Right

Standard

We will experience many obstacles in life.  Usually, our first reaction is to resist what is happening.  We also want to know why it is happening.  What we really need to do is focus on getting though the situation and to think positive about what we can learn from it.  It’s a growing experience.  We may come to find out later or we may never know.  Our faith is being put to the test.

Greatest Teacher

Standard

Do you ever wish you could go back to a younger age in life?  I’ve heard many people say they wish they were younger but only if they knew then what they know now.  What do you know now?  Have your learned from your past experiences?  Experiences can sting us and teach us not to do that again or positive experiences can motivate us to keep doing what we’re doing.  We learn more from our experiences than anything no matter if they’re good or bad.  Experiences are our greatest teachers.  Oscar Wilde wrote this great quote:

“Experience is the hardest kind of teacher. It gives you the test first and the lesson afterward.”
