It's not a matter of surviving the storms in life,,,; but whether you can learn to dance in the rain.

Default Re: Lessons in Life

Someone on reddit wrote the following heartfelt plea online:

ďMy friend just died. I donít know what to do.Ē

Many people responded with words of encouragement, but one response in particular, by an older gentlemen, really stood out from the restÖ

Alright, here goes. Iím old. What that means is that Iíve survived (so far) and a lot of people Iíve known and loved did not. Iíve lost friends, best friends, acquaintances, co-workers, grandparents, mom, relatives, teachers, mentors, students, neighbors, and a host of other folks. I have no children, and I canít imagine the pain it must be to lose a child. But hereís my two cents.



I wish I could say you get used to people dying. I never did. I donít want to. It tears a hole through me whenever somebody I love dies, no matter the circumstances. But I donít want it to ďnot matterĒ. I donít want it to be something that just passes. My scars are a testament to the love and the relationship that I had for and with that person. And if the scar is deep, so was the love.

So be it. Scars are a testament to life. Scars are a testament that I can love deeply and live deeply and be cut, or even gouged, and that I can heal and continue to live and continue to love. And the scar tissue is stronger than the original flesh ever was. Scars are a testament to life. Scars are only ugly to people who canít see.

As for grief, youíll find it comes in waves. When the ship is first wrecked, youíre drowning, with wreckage all around you. Everything floating around you reminds you of the beauty and the magnificence of the ship that was, and is no more. And all you can do is float. You find some piece of the wreckage and you hang on for a while. Maybe itís some physical thing. Maybe itís a happy memory or a photograph. Maybe itís a person who is also floating. For a while, all you can do is float. Stay alive.





In the beginning, the waves are 100 feet tall and crash over you without mercy. They come 10 seconds apart and donít even give you time to catch your breath. All you can do is hang on and float. After a while, maybe weeks, maybe months, youíll find the waves are still 100 feet tall, but they come further apart. When they come, they still crash all over you and wipe you out.

But in between, you can breathe, you can function. You never know whatís going to trigger the grief. It might be a song, a picture, a street intersection, the smell of a cup of coffee. It can be just about anythingÖand the wave comes crashing. But in between waves, there is life.

Somewhere down the line, and itís different for everybody, you find that the waves are only 80 feet tall. Or 50 feet tall. And while they still come, they come further apart. You can see them coming. An anniversary, a birthday, or Christmas, or landing at OíHare. You can see it coming, for the most part, and prepare yourself. And when it washes over you, you know that somehow you will, again, come out the other side. Soaking wet, sputtering, still hanging on to some tiny piece of the wreckage, but youíll come out.



Take it from an old guy. The waves never stop coming, and somehow you donít really want them to. But you learn that youíll survive them. And other waves will come. And youíll survive them too. If youíre lucky, youíll have lots of scars from lots of loves. And lots of shipwrecks.

My daughter in law shared this with me ..so I'm sharing it with you.

---

I'm walking into 2018 with a clear heart and mind:
•If you owe me, don't worry about it - you're welcome.
•If you wronged me, it's all good - lesson learned.
•If you're angry with me, you've won - I let it go.
•If we aren't speaking, its cool but I’m still sorry about it. - (I wish you well).
•If you feel I've wronged you, I apologize - it wasn't intentional.
•If you used me to get something - I hope you enjoyed it.

In all honesty, life is too short for all the pent-up anger, holding of grudges and extra stress or pain!

Here's to 2018!!!

Remember, forgiving someone is for you not the other person, so please don't block your blessings from above!

Here's to you in 2018 !!!!
Happy New Year !!!

I think we need a new thread for certain political posts: "Do As I Say, Not As I Do". Not all political stuff would go there, but things such as this would fit better in such a thread than anywhere else!

BTW, great find Doc!

Seems to me “lessons in life” is a good place for a video on how not to rob a store!
