It's actually quite freeing when you give up the idea that you're being taught a lesson. Or worse, when you've decided you will wield the flaming sword of justice & teach someone else a lesson. HA. Consider it a reminder for yourself, or other people in your life who're learning that particular lesson about there being no lessons...;-)
It's one of the stories from the new book, Bring Your Life Back to Life & it's available as an 11x14 print on acid-free paper with white/black double matte, protected in a clear poly sleeve.
Nothing is teaching you a lesson, or teaching someone else a lesson. There's only this: who do you want to be, and are you being that?
