So you know my theory right? Once you learn the lesson it stops repeating. Recently I have had cause to rethink this just a little bit. You may not continue to get retested but sometimes the universe gives you a pop quiz.
The purpose of the quiz is not to make you fail. It is designed for lesson reinforcement. In other words, yes you get it. You’ve learned the lesson. You understand. BUT, are you able to apply the lesson across the board in a variety of circumstances?
Here’s the good news. Once you are able to step back, remember that you do know the lesson, and understand that this is just a pop quiz you relax. There is no need to go into fight mode. It’s just a quiz and you have already studied. You know the answers.
This is today’s lesson. I’ve been struggling with something for about a week now- asking myself why this is happening, wondering what I’m doing to encourage it. Today I passed the quiz. I recognize that this is indeed a lesson. I’ve learned it before and I just need to implement the answers. I am a quiet stresser. When I’m bothered most, people are often not aware of it. I appear as cool as a cucumber on the outside but I’m torn up internally. This is not good or healthy. So, today I’ m breathing and relaxing- it’s just a quiz. There is no new lesson to learn. Just spit the answers back out. It’s just a pop quiz. Trust… you’ve got this.
