Life's journey is full of experiences from which we can and should learn wisdom. Sometimes these experiences will knock us to the ground and force us to reconsider our beliefs and values. Sometimes we will have to learn the lesson multiple times before we gain the wisdom to move on to better opportunities and new lessons. Sometimes we fail to gain the wisdom and will repeat the same mistakes again and again.
Wisdom comes not from simply living in the moment, but from deep reflection and introspection. Wisdom comes from questioning what we do and analyzing why we behave in the manner in which we do. Life gives us many opportunities to grow in wisdom and understanding. Each life lesson teaches us to become better individuals and to open our hearts to the wisdom that is given.
Sometimes the lessons that life throws our way will force us to lose our faith and push us toward giving up. We become discouraged and depressed. We enter a world of darkness and unhappiness. We must keep to the path and not lose sight of the goal. We must not let the pessimism of others defeat us. We must keep going despite how we feel. Keep in mind that on cloudy days the sun still shines. We must learn to fly above the clouds and experience the joy of the sun's rays.
May you seek the wisdom that comes from experience and the faith that restores the heart.
