Life lessons – great and small

Every relationship teaches you things, you know? Sometimes they are big life lessons, sometimes simple truths. And I don’t just mean big relationships, partners, children, very best friends, but even co-workers, neighbors, and acquaintances. In the 30 Day Reinvention one of the assignments was about thinking about what we’ve learned from people, both loved ones and people we don’t get along with. I like this exercise and have been asked to think about things in other classes. I love the idea of considering what we learn from the people around us, of taking time to think of such things. At any rate, this idea has been on my mind lately.

Tonight, though, as I was sitting down to my dinner, it occurred to me that there are simple things, as well, that often go unnoticed. One of the things I learned in my last relationship is the simple pleasure of a few slices of avocado served with an omelette. Tonight I made a simple omelette for dinner when I remembered that someone from work had given me an avocado. I halved it and sliced it and added to my plate, a smile on my face.

Mine wasn’t this beautiful...but still tasty!
