Life will smack you in the face. Period.

I know you've heard this one before, but there is no avoiding it.

It happens because someone (or something) is trying to teach us a lesson. Not an I'll-show-you! kind of lesson. But one that we should really learn from, that can really better our lives and ourselves.

When I get smacked—and trust me, I do—I take a moment and, as painful as it is, think about:
  • What are my gains? What do I stand to learn from this?
  • What is the risk of not learning the lesson? What will happen if I choose to ignore the lesson?

There is always a lesson to be learnt. Always. At the end of the day, it's all about becoming better people. Better as fathers/mothers, husbands/wives, friends. And we do this by learning our lessons...

Go learn.
