Life has important lessons to teach you today. Some of those lessons will be enjoyable, many of them will be a bit painful, and when the day is over you'll be wiser for them all.
Each person you meet today has something to teach you. Though they may make you somewhat angry, impatient, uncomfortable or frustrated at the time, those lessons are sure to be of much value.
Every situation in which you find yourself has something to teach you. Keep that in mind as you work your way through them all, and look for the positive value that you can retain.
Life becomes increasingly fulfilling when you choose to learn each lesson it has to teach. As you grow in wisdom, the difficulties will become less difficult to live through, and the joys will become more profound.
In triumph, in tragedy, in joy and in disappointment there are always valuable, positive lessons you can learn. As you learn more of what life has to teach, many of the things that once held you back will lose their power to do so.
Choose to respond to each encounter, each situation, and each challenge of this day in a way that will enable you to learn something new. Accept the lessons that life offers, and you'll quickly find them to be of great value.
