Life is a classroom. You hear it over and over again. 

And yet, you get frustrated (and who wouldn’t?) when you have to learn seemingly the same lessons over and over again. 

It’s at this point where you have to be aware of the pitfall of pride, that may trap you and threaten to cut off your ability to learn and grow. 

You’d like to think that you have some graduated from this part of the program. It’s always tempting to believe that somehow you are immune from the “basics”, or the fundamentals. 

You want to believe that you are beyond these lessons, that they are below you. 

It is better for you if you resist these thoughts, and humbly accept the teaching and the lesson, as if for the first time. 

If you can embrace what life wants to teach you, you can always keep growing. Stay open, stay humble. Learn and move on.
