”Imagine that every person in the world is enlightened but you. They are all your teachers, each doing just the right things to help you learn perfect patience, perfect wisdom, perfect compassion.” – Gautama Buddha
I love this quote! And I truly believe in living by it. Everyone can teach me something if I slow down enough to look for it and if I am humble enough to receive it.
My daughter teaches me about laughter and play on a daily basis – and to not take myself so seriously.
My sons teach me about pride, the passage of time, and how to hold each precious moment.
My husband teaches me spirituality, patience, perseverance, commitment, and how to stand up for myself.
My friends teach me consistency, trust, and how to be a friend.
My counseling clients teach me compassion and gratitude.
My coaching clients teach me discipline, courage, acceptance, and letting go.
My family teaches me forgiveness, self-awareness, and love.
Strangers remind me that I don’t know everything, and how powerful something as simple as a smile can be.
What will others teach you today?
If I can do it you can do it!
