My Challenge Today:

Lessons which must be lived …

By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC


Life is a succession of lessons

which must be lived to be understood.

~ Helen Keller



Lessons are sometimes learned the hard way – through our own personal experience and sometimes we are fortunate enough to learn from others so that we don’t have to suffer through challenges ourself. I prefer to observe the experiences of others and learn by osmosis …  a little less painful. And then there are those lessons that we must learn the hard way, by going through the experience, it’s the only way to fully understand.


We learn the ropes of life by untying its knots … when we encounter a kink in the road, a challenge to embrace, we are faced with a learning proposition. I have to remind myself that I am always a winner when I am learning — sometimes that in itself is a challenge. I don’t always have a good attitude, sometimes I have to listen to my negativity and consciously turn that around into a more profitable, positive point of view, it takes practice.
