If one is open and willing, life has a way of teaching us many things including patience
As this work week comes to an end, here’s to hoping everyone has a beautiful weekend ahead.
Today, I was thinking about my time in Homeopathic College. By the end of my formal studies (homeopathic education never really ends, it is a life-long learning journey) I thought that I had acquired “super powers” and that I would be able to “save” the world. I’m not sure what I thought I’d “save” the world from…perhaps itself. Everyone I’d meet was seemingly struggling with a health issue and I would think “there’s a remedy for that…you can be helped”! .
As the years passed, I “grew up” (and growing up is hard), and I have come to accept that I can’t really save the world after after all. Looking back, that idea came from a place of ego, I would say. This was a tough pill to swallow for a young Homeopath. If one is open and willing, life has a way of teaching us many things including patience, surrender, acceptance and understanding.
Here’s to hoping that we can get on with life gracefully, with patience and understanding to help others when we are called and to know our limits.
