I am a great believer in that people show up in our lives for a reason. I love the song in Wicked that tells this beautifully:
“I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return ”
Recently – I have noticed that even in my life, people are showing up to help me on my journey. Some are staying, and others come in and leave when necessary.
What is surprising me more, is that people in my life now are showing me different parts of me – that I didn’t realise were there! I had a conversation at work with someone, and I found that I was getting very irritated and annoyed at what was being said to me, and how they couldn’t follow my simple instructions.
I then realised, that all that was happening – was I was not following someone elses ‘simple instructions’. So I have learnt a great listen in watching how I get irritated, and what I need to do to correct that behaviour, a reflection of myself in one way or another!
