All Relationships are Mirrors

All relationships are your mirrors and all people are your teachers.

I am so thankful for everyone who has crossed my path and impacted my life. From the friends, family and strangers who support my crazy aspirations (and those that don’t)  to the co-workers who work my last damn nerve and everyone in between, I thank you!

It never ceases to amaze me how the right person will always show up at just the right time to offer a piece of advice, an ear to listen to me vent or even just a smile that can so easily brighten up a crap-tastic situation. I’m honored to be able to offer the same in return. It feels to great to know I have made an impact (no matter how small and seemingly insignificant) in someone’s life.

I truly believe that all relationships are your mirrors and all people are your teachers. Welcome them in, immerse yourself in their teachings and grow from the lessons…

The world is nothing but a school of love;
Our relationships with our husband or wife, with our children and parents, 
with our friends and relatives are the university 
in which we are to learn 
what love and devotion truly are. 
~Swami Muktananda

    I love your sentiments here, April! I feel the same way. We need to schedule our outing so we can talk more about this, and life and travels. :) — Michelle

    Talk di tings, April!! Definitely speaking truth on this one. I agree with you that it’s amazing how the right person or situation presents itself when we need it the most.

    • Yes, it is! Always try to stay open to anyone and everything that crosses my path.

  • Yup, over and over again. When I think about, each person at home and on the road regardless if the interaction was good or bad has impacted the way I thought, increased my motivation to keep doing me, cause me the rethink or change somethings about myself or my thoughts. And that goes for you too Ms. JanCan. We will def have to link up soon. 18 days!!!
