Life has a way of reminding us if we are going in the right direction.
When we are moving forward, it will reward us with tiny positive reinforcements, in the form of true progress. Some of these rewards may be obvious, others not so much.
When we are going in the wrong direction, it will remind us too. These lessons may be in the form of small imperceptible changes that take away blessings from us. If the small reminders are ignored, the lessons can come in the form of full-blown tragedies that shake us to the core.
Learn the lessons early. Do not wait until you have lost everything before you learn the lesson.
Life is talking to us. Be grateful. Listen and learn.
