Then and Now

I have always been lucky but never realized it.
I never noticed the abundance in my life until I experienced a lack.
I never tuned into the signals I was receiving,pretending they did not exist,until I learnt my lessons the hard way.

Now
every knock,every jolt makes me aware of
how I have grown
how I am evolving
how I am not the same person I used to be

Now
I ask for more knocks
not to suffer
but to learn
to be able to go beyond my narrow ego barriers
and to be able to tap into my deepest resources which surface
with every defeat
with every lesson

I learn every day
The lessons are new
My days are new

I really like this one. Especially the part about "more knocks, not to suffer, but to learn". Also likes the thought of every day as a new lesson.

Yes, sometimes it takes the absence o something to realise the true value of it. Like the poem that follows.
