My Top 3 Lessons I Learned This Year

#3….You can’t and shouldn’t try to change people!

Yes, I know you think you can save them a lot of heartache because you’ve “been there and done that”! But the key point here is THEY HAVEN’T BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT! Think about it, what is the first thing a child will do if you say don’t do this or don’t do that? Yep, they can’t wait to do it……….(must be great if you don’t want me to do it!)  Don’t touch that stove it will burn you……………I know because I’ve done it……..just trust me! Yeah, right!

We learn by doing. Each person learns in a different way. How do you know what cold is if you don’t know what hot is?

We are on this planet to learn. So you do your learning and let others do theirs! Give suggestions if asked, help if help is really what they want, and don’t finance and expect them to follow your advice just because you threw some money into the pot! Don’t enable!!!!! PERIOD!

When you are no longer helping………………get out of the way!!!!!!!!!!!

#2. PROOF OF HEAVEN! YES! THERE REALLY IS PROOF!

PROOF OF HEAVEN BY Eben Alexander…..A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife.

Actually, the book itself didn’t convince me that there is life after death….I already believed that………BUT it validated what I already believed.

The book  started a book club of people who had read the book and were interested in talking about the book’s “lessons” and that led to other areas such a “quantum physics” …..the NEW physics that isn’t new but few people know about it. It put all of my beliefs into perspective and made everything I believe fit into what I’ve always believed to be the TRUTH of who we are and where and how we got here!

SO GET THE BOOK AND READ IT…………..GOT COMMENTS? GOT QUESTIONS? SEND THEM TO ME BY E-MAIL….ralawson@knology.net …

#1 KNOWING WHEN TO LEAVE!!!!!

THIS SIMPLE SENTENCE IS PERHAPS THE MOST IMPORTANT GIFT WE POSSESS! Somehow I have always known when to “leave”. In relationships, partnerships, family arguments, jobs, volunteer work, friendships, etc.  I JUST HAD A “FEELING ABOUT IT”………….and after I left I had this wonderful sense of relief like a cloud had lifted from over my head!

Oprah Winfrey was interviewed on her program several years ago about what in her life had made the biggest difference in getting her to where she is now (WOW! At the top of her game!). Her reply was, “I’ve always known when to leave!”

I’ve thought long and hard about that and I believe that we “know” when our lives are not in the proper alignment by having “that feeling” that something is wrong and we “feel” bad. AND on the other hand when things are going “right” we “feel” GOOD about it. That “knowing” is our gift of GRACE! If we learn to listen to our intuitions (feelings) and act on them……………then we walk in GRACE and learn to walk in the paths of righteousness and fulfill our life’s plan.

NOW THINK OF YOUR TOP 3 LESSONS OF THE YEAR AND PLAN MORE FOR 2016!!!!!!!!!!

BLESSINGS OF LOVE AND LIGHT TO ALL OF YOU!

  1. This was a really good post. Now I have to think about lessons learned , where I’ve been , and where I’m going, and get back here to post!

  2. Oh, I just Love when you post because you ALWAYS make me sit up and Listen, then Think and then Do!!!!! You have made such an impact on my life and I can not thank you enough. I have had to face things and deal with things that I would not have done if it had not been for you opening my eyes and heart to things I just could either not deal with or was in denial!! I save these so that I can go back and reread them to remind me that there is a better way if I will just do something or sometimes do nothing about a situation. Thank you for being in our lives and teaching us that not everything is easy, but sometimes necessary for us to be happy. Like you say, ” I choose to live a Happy Life!” Love and Huggies!!!
