Life's Hard Lessons, and Why They Hurt So Bad.

BACK AT IT WITH FULL FORCE!

First of all, I would like to apologize to the die-hard fans...   I did a post yesterday on my new facebook page for my audience that I would write and I did not.  Just know that even for me, life gets overwhelming.  Never think that sharing my thoughts with you is not important to me.  It is!  So my life has just been overwhelming that is why I have been missing.  

We all go through things that teach us lessons.  Embrace these lessons and learn from them.  

I believe that the harder you fight to not learn the lesson, the harder the lesson is going to hurt.  So even during the struggles you face, try to find the lesson.  Try to find the "thing" you are supposed to be learning.  That is what your struggles are for.  

Things do not just happen to people.  LET ME SAY THAT REALLY LOUD.

Things do not just happen to people.

Every terrible thing that has ever happened in my life has taught me something.  Realizing that I was learning lessons, that comes with age.  Unless someone says it out loud.  I want to say things out loud to help you be happy.  That is my goal.  TO HELP YOU BE HAPPY.

I believe that happiness will come to you even in struggles if you can learn to look at the lessons.  You can still be happy when you struggling if you understand there is a lesson to be learned.  Quit pretending that you know everything.  The lessons are going to hurt really bad sometimes.  

I don't know everything, you don't know everything.  Learning is a constant thing.  These lessons can range from learning to love yourself all the way forgiveness and empathy.  Look at the reasons that these things happen in your life and learn them.  





So my story goes:

Freshly 18.  Dating my first husband.  I was living in an apartment in Angola, and it was my first real lease.  I was working, he was working, and we were just children.  So many events occurred during this time and I was being evicted for non-payment.  This was a very easy lesson to embrace.  DON'T PAY YOUR BILLS YOU DON'T HAVE A PLACE TO SLEEP.  It's an important lesson you need to learn as an adult.  

I embraced this lesson because I love my personal space, and didn't really have a place I could just live and mooch.  I never ran into another situation that I was being evicted.  





Now think about someone that you actually know that has not embraced this lesson in life.  The older they get the bigger the situations are, the more people they involve, and the more pain they cause.

Fast Forward 26.  Miserable.  Working hard day in and day out.  At this point in life, giving was all I did.  I gave everything I had in my energy to everyone and everything but myself.  Situations that drained me were presented steadily at that time.  Over my entire adulthood up to this point, my life was trying to teach me the importance of taking care of yourself first.  

Obviously, I did not embrace this lesson.  AT ALL.  I dodged it for almost a decade.  My life just cycled out of control.  This is a hard lesson to learn.  I think that there are actually people who never learn it.  A close friend of mine said it took her decades to learn it.  The longer you take to learn this lesson the harder it hurts.  I PROMISE.

I have watched many people learn this lesson.  The older they are the harder it is for them to make the changes that are involved with this lesson as well.  So my advice to you is to stop shying away from life lessons.

Step back and look at the lesson.  Learn it.  Live it.  Then you can move forward.

That is all I have tonight.  If you want to comment please do anywhere.  I am really grateful for everyone and their support.  I love sharing with people.  Anyone who knows me personally knows that I can speak, ALOT.  Always remember my goal is to share things with you that will help you find happiness.

MY GOAL IS HAPPY.  IF I CAN FIND HAPPY, YOU CAN TOO.

Love You.
A.Levesque
