Some periods in life seem to be filled with important lessons, and my last few weeks have been a reminder that we are never too old to learn new lessons (or at least be reminded of ones that we should already know). One of my recent commitments is to listen more carefully to my life and be more in tune with what is going on around me. As a result, the lessons that have come my direction have been rich.
