I’m a firm believer that we are put into this life with certain people because they teach us qualities that we need to learn. My theory is that we are given a vessel, a spirit, that starts out empty. With each life we fill that vessel up with more knowledge until one day we’re full-up and we move on to something more. I know I still have a lot to learn.
Janie and I had an argument today. We don’t argue often, but when we do intend to look at it as an opportunity for learning. I try to answer one question, “What is my part in this?” I’ve learned over the years that one lesson I will learn in this life, one of the many I will learn from my partner, is that of admitting when I am wrong and apologizing. I’m not very good at it yet. If there were training wheels for something like this, mine would be screwed on tight. I’m still wobbling my spiritual and emotional bicycle down the sidewalk and my helmet is on.
