Reinvent-tage Retreat Day 19

Today's Intention...experiment by failure...smart failures are life lessons...



Failure, if you learn the lesson it teaches, is a smart failure...and smart failures are always worthwhile...

My life journey has been strewn with learning experiences, small...and large...and huge. You can see the wisdom of the lessons learned written on my face.

Life lessons are wonderfully poignant. The lessons below spring from a potent inner wisdom I learned at a young age when a terrible accident changed the course of my life forever...I learned to be alive...because life is short and...

  1. Everything happens in its own time, exactly as it should.

  2. Trust your instincts, vibrations, and gut feelings...it is God's way of speaking to you.

  3. Focus on being of value.

  4. There are many perspectives to any situation.

  5. Hold those you love close.

  6. Courage comes from our spirit.

  7. Once the future becomes the present...it is perfect.

  8. Develop soul power so that when your world unravels...your self will remain intact.

  9. There are no ordinary moments.

  10. Forgive everyone everything...including yourself.

  11. You always have choices.

  12. It is NEVER too late.

  13. A lesson is repeated...until learned.
Everything in your life has a lesson to teach...


I am off to Chicago today...teaching a lively bunch of artists the business of art...be back soon...

See post here for your invitation to join the Reinvent-tage Retreat...and to see how the process works...

    Yes, safe trip.

    I absolutely LOVE this, it's true, true, true.

    Doesn't life teach us so much when we slow down and listen, when we learn by living.

    Thanks for this, it's wonderful.
    Have fun and come home safe.

    Have a great and safe trip! Take pictures!!

    You are absolutely right in what you're saying here today. My middle school history teacher used to tell us all of the time that until we learn the lesson, history is bound to repeat itself. That was 20 years ago and I still remember that. I try to apply that life lesson to my day-to-day living. Failure happens for a reason. Learn the lesson.

    Love,
