Some time ago I wrote an article, that if the same things keep happening to us just about everywhere we go, then we have to take a look in the mirror. That it's not the world against us, it may be us against ourselves.
I think many of us had to learn this lesson or at least learn some version of this lesson that it wasn't all about us. Some of us needed to get a revelation that it was us who needed to change in order to grow. I know I learned a few lessons that I simply had to do things differently for different things to happen. I'm continuing to learn as I go and the fact that we are still learning is a great thing. Nothing wrong with that at all. Continuous learning should be just that, continuous, no matter how old we are. It puzzles me when people don't want to change and their rationale is, 'I'm just being me" or "I'm too old to change" or "I'm stuck in my ways" or "It's them, not me and I'm not changing.' Wow, so is what I'm hearing here, that we are always right and everyone else is wrong? Everyone else? Really?
Free our minds and the rest will follow.
Nobody has arrived and all of us can learn something new no matter who we are. We would be surprised what happens when we just open up and listen to people. If we're hearing the same things everywhere we go, we should take self-inventory and ask ourselves, what can I do differently? Our world can open wider and we can do the things we never thought we could do, go places we never thought we would go, and be the people God always had for us to be.
That involves us having an open attitude and working on ourselves, not expecting others to.
