lessons from 2012
just a short list of things i've been reflecting upon lately:
*everyone has something that they are crying themselves to sleep about. 9 times out of ten, it is something we would never guess or would never be privy to.
if you don't think so, just you wait.
*humility is often earned. it's a badge of honor for surviving difficult times.
*each trial includes blessings. during and after.
*"there should never be just 2 options: perfection or giving up... growth and development take time. learning takes time." brad wilcox
*i need to be anxiously engaged in a good cause, NOT over-anxiously engaged. set a good pace.
*time goes by so quickly. trying to slow it down is my biggest heartache.
*shutting up is really important. we should all try it sometime.
*supporting your spouse is one of the most important things that you can do. always.
*i'm glad that i have a desire to change. i want to get over my anxiety issues and feel free to do what i need to or not be overwhelmed by guilt if i DON'T do something.
a couple of my resolutions-
*heed the promptings to serve. plan to serve more, but in smaller ways. not everything has to be a production to be effective.
*keep a better record of my family in my journal and on my blog.
