The greatest lesson in life is that life is a lesson. – Jay N. Forrest
It is not that life is designed to be a lesson, but rather life is best lived as a series of lessons. Approaching life as a student opens us to learning from it, rather than suffering from it.
Think of the difference of mind between someone who is teachable and someone who isn’t. Wisdom is not something that arrives at your door in a nicely wrapped package. It is more like a rock that falls through your roof.
Life is a series of lessons only if you are a student of life. Life can be a hard taskmaster just as well. The magic is in your attitude towards life.
