Everything is a lesson

This is quite possibly the best thing I’ve heard in a long time.

Everything is a lesson.

You can take from this anything you want – It’s positive, negative, indifferent, motivational, and even demotivational. It’s something that happened today/yesterday at work, at home, on the way to the corner shop or at the gym. It was something expected and unexpected at the same time, an unusual event or a predictable disappointment. An uplifting experience or a message or call from an old friend.

I’ve heard of lifelong learning, and even taken part in conversations about it, but that seems more formal than ‘everything is a lesson’.

Everything is a lesson.

What does it mean to you?
