The gift of receiving life lessons from unlikely places

The average lifespan of a laptop is five years.

This baby is over eight years old :

Seasoned Laptop

 

Now that you are finished laughing at her appearance, consider the following:

She’s not as young or as shiny as she once was, but thanks to consistent tender, loving care, and choosing to make the very best of where she is by accepting a little help in those areas that don’t function quite as well as they used to, and accepting her older, now somewhat altered appearance, she’s still up to snuff. She’s still living the laptop life.

Have you figured out the lesson in this propped up, a little worse for wear, but still going strong laptop story yet?

Well, here it is:
Better to embrace and use whatever you need to continue to do as you wish to the best of your ability, than it is to bemoan the natural progression of time, and/or keep wasting money, energy, and peace trying to replace the clearly older, well used, but still completely viable, with the newest and latest promise of better than what is.

Spiritual seekers, artists, the naturally observant, and those who choose to practice observance expect (and so see) life lessons everywhere. Scooping them up and gratefully tucking them into their hearts and heads, they enjoy the benefits they receive from some of the least obvious teachers. 

Paying attention to life lessons is a powerful spiritual tool for living that is available to everyone.

Give it a try. 

I would love to hear about your experience.
