Thank The Universe For The Lessons It’s Given You

Each day you can wake up in the morning and go about your day is a gift and an opportunity to learn. Within that day holds potential and the promise of the unknown.

Within that day holds several lessons, too.

Thank the universe for the lessons it’s given you.

Thank the universe for the tiny lessons, the big lessons, the monumental shifts that change the course of your direction, and the overlooked moments that shape the direction of your life.

Thank the universe for the lessons it’s given you.

Thank the universe for teaching you how to be patient. It cannot be spring all the time – winter must come so that your favorite flowers, and trees, and people to grow. Instant gratification feels delicious at the moment, but there is something beautiful and lastly about the taste of slow success.

Thank the universe for the lessons it’s given you.

Thank the universe for teaching you what love means. Sometimes love looks like our own version of a Nora Ephron movie. Sometimes it’s a different picture, with a different package altogether. Love is anything but black and white – it’s a million shades of grey, and all the colors of the rainbow, too. It’s about knowing how to say thank you, and I appreciate you, and I adore you, and yes, I love you. It’s tiny moments of quiet and gestures of grandness, too. It’s two people finding one another in the chaos of the world as it spins by, and figuring out how to fit with each other.

Thank the universe for the lessons it’s given you.

Thank the universe for teaching you how to trust your own resiliency. You are bone and blood, and bits of stardust, too. A million things had to go right to make you, and there are a million things right about you. When you are inevitably faced with a mountain to climb, water to tread, and a marathon to run – remember that you are capable of getting to the other side, and asking for a life vest, and getting to that finish line.

Thank the universe for the lessons it’s given you.

Thank the universe for teaching you about what matters – the things that keep us going are often the things that money cannot buy – like faith, and hope, and health and love. You cannot hold these things in your hand, or pick them off of a shelf – but they matter more than all the wealth in the world, and therein lies the greatest lesson of them all.
