Struggle: Learn your lesson the first time.

Life is easier when you… learn your lesson the first time. Well that’s easier said than done.

There has been a recurring theme in one aspect of my life that pops up every once in a while (vague – I know). Well, it came up again this week.  I needed to make a decision to follow one instinct or another.

I was reminded of something Tom Shadyac spoke about in his class at Pepperdine (that I totally crash).

We were analyzing the movie, Groundhog Day.  (I am sure you all know Groundhog Day.  Bill Murray keeps living the same day over and over again. Until, he learns his lesson and finds his true self.)

Tom Shadyac pointed out that, “Life’s going to throw the same obstacles at you until you get it right.”

Today, I followed the other instinct.  Yay me!

Take a look at your life and see if there are any recurring obstacles… Maybe you haven’t learned your lesson yet!


  1. Yay you!!! xoxo
