It seems to me that we are stubborn students of life.

Life seems to tell us: here is a situation you need to face for your own development, and yet, most of the time, we will try to avoid the lesson.

Why? Because it’s too damned hard! The curious thing about this is: the lesson we try to avoid seems to come back to us in many unexpected ways. Somehow, we can’t escape it.

I heard of some couple who had a baby with heart problems, the baby had to spend most of the first year of his life at the hospital. This situation had put a lot stress on the parents. Their mariage couldn’t resist. The parents divorced. The guy met another woman and she became pregnant. When the baby was born, the baby boy had a similar heart problem. It seems to me that this father couldn’t escape this particular situation.

When we focus on the moment and accept to face what we have to, it can be very difficult, but it is one of the best ways to grow as a human being.

It is probably one of the best ways to outgrow this unwanted situation or circumstance.

What does this post have to do with time or life management?

The sooner we understand this concept and put it in practice, the more time we will save to do other activities that we really enjoy.
