What’s on your exam paper?

Girl writing on exam paper

Life is a test. Or at least, it can feel that way sometimes. We are tested by relationships, circumstances, and of course recently, the pandemic.

It can be useful to copy others as they go about responding to their tests. We can learn from their experience, but it can also be misleading.

You see, the tests they have are different. Think of it this way… the questions on their exam paper are different. If you just copy what they are doing, you are answering the wrong exam!

What are the questions on your exam paper?

According to Ain Eineziz, “You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it.”

In other words, you CAN pass your exam paper. Just make sure you are answering the right one.

My best wishes, Paul
