The amount of changes in our life, and the incredible lessons we learned this past year have been amazing.
I can honestly say we are in a better place than the previous go round.
I’m giving you a list of the 14 best things I learned.
6- Family is important. For the past 8 years we have lived across the green belt from my in-laws and 3 hours away from my own parents. We have added to that “family” and enjoy spending a lot of time with them. I find that I truly do treasure my family, all of them.
7- your never too “old” to learn something new and it’s never to late to start.
8- Invest in relationships. Those friendships are what will get you thru the hard times.
9- If you are passionate about something or want to try something thing new do it. Don’t let anybody talk you out of it.
10- be true to who you are.
11- stand up for what you believe and even if it goes against “the norm”. Some people think my relationship with Christ had been borderline fanatical but it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
12-embrace the here and now stop living in the past and stop trying to live in the future. The past is behind you for a reason.
13- heads up! I shudder the think what I have missed out on when I foolishly “checked out. ” even if it was just for a moment.
14- nothing is more important than your health. Daily I need to remind myself to wear sunscreen and drink more water. But I’m trying.
What did you learn this last year?
I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
