Lesson of the Moment: Digging Your Way Out
They say learning lasts a lifetime. But why does it have to be so difficult and painful?
Have you ever had a moment when you plan something wonderful, and then it blows up--in your face? I'm sure we all experienced that.
The funny thing is that when we know we're in trouble, it's usually too late. It's much like the housing bubble (pardon the economics analogy): economists, consumers and investors don't realize a bubble has overblown until it pops.
But the other funny thing is there's always an exit route. Often, we don't recognize them or we blatantly disregard its existence. I had an exit route but the stubborn me ignored it. Hence, I dug an even deeper hole for myself.
I find it baffling that when I try so hard to solve things, that's when I get myself into deeper trouble. Yet, when I declare powerlessness do I encounter God's safety. I think that's when divine intervention kicks in.
The end result? Lesson learned. Oh and here's a bonus: a stronger, better, more experienced me.
Anyway, here is my current theme song "Hard" by Rihanna. Just because life is hard, but very rewarding. Take care everyone!
