None of your experiences are ever a waste of time. Every experience, good or bad, has helped you further define your preferences and offered wonderful opportunities for growth and expansion, even if they didn’t turn out the way you wished they would.
There is also an idea that it has been a waste of time if you were kind to another who in the end didn’t appreciate your efforts. Dear Ones, your kindness was a beautiful act of self declaration and contributed to the collective energies of the planet. Your kindness, is never, ever, wasted.
So don’t let your concern about outcome temper your natural impulse to be loving, kind, or compassionate towards others. Allow your divine nature to shine knowing that is the where the real joy is – in your ability to lead with your true, undiluted expression of self. If you are making sure that you are also being kind, compassionate, and loving towards yourself, you will be able to embrace your beingness in a way that honours everyone involved. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
