Gleaning Wisdom from the Past

In any quest, a person must overcome significant challenges.  Sometimes linking to the past to learn from it may seem painful. 

Have you ever had occasion to look back at your life at times when you were the most challenged, in seemingly insurmountable ways, only to find you learned the most about yourself?  Did you find you could be strong and resilient?  Did you gain the knowledge about yourself that you could, indeed, do difficult things, over and over if necessary?  Did you learn you could be kind during the process of difficulty?  If you were not kind, did you determine that you would like to work on that?  Did you learn that there were unexpected friends along your path to help strengthen you?  Were your eyes open to see the blessings and opportunities along the way, or did you feel blind in the struggle to survive?

 If you were able to conclude that your difficulties were your teachers, and using that perspective, found some personal benefit or strength growing out of the pain or trouble, THEN you were able to learn wisdom from the past.  Congratulations!   If not, let us continue to help.  Visit www.familytreequest.com
