Lori, your video messages are precious and so inspiring to me. I sometimes miss them or didn't take the time to watch them and i feel these are missed opportunities Thank you, Edwin

Wasting time---definitely one of my biggest problems (especially when I don't have ENOUGH time, and thus feel so nervous I procrastinate endlessly). Thank you for the reminder, and God bless!

"I'm learning everyday" is what I always tell myself everyday. I'm learning to learn how to be a good student of life. I can feel G-d is watching me and I can feel his love every moment. I'm chinese but I feel so blessed to be able to learn so much from Jewish websites. Thank you, Lori..thank you, aish.com...thank you, Jewish people...and one thing I can never stop learning everyday>>> G-d is love אלוהים אהבה

Is it possible to learn too much?

What if one pays attention to every little thing...overwhelming...No? Selective learning...but then ..are we focusing on the proper issues...maybe only those we're comfortable with? What's the way to focus on what's truly important and ignore the rest?

I agree

Beautiful article! Thank you so much--this rings true. Hashem gives us answers, we just have to know where to look.

as "pupil" is to see

I think this is one of your most beautiful and true commentaries on life. I believe this, deeply. Each day has its lessons and we are all in the school of life. I do believe life is presenting us all with a profound learning curve and that there is a story running contrapuntally, the music, if only we take the time to hear it, that is here for us all. I think this is a message we all need to hear, and hear again. It's beautiful and beauty IS truth.

Good point

So true, there's messages all around but we don't pay attention. There's so much we can learn. For example, trusting that if things don't our way, it's for the best, and we receive what we need at the right time. Another good message for all of us is to spend more time with family. Time goes by, we only have this moment. I like that you mention about doing a self check of what we learned. I've been listening to info about looking into ourself to see what to improve, and also talking to G-d; It helps b/c then we don't feel life is just going by, instead we use the time wisely.
