What I’ve learned in 2013
+Not everything is my fault.
+Worrying is akin to praying for what you don’t want to happen.
+Ask and you shall receive.
+Two kids are easier than one.
+When faced with a problem/inconvenience/bad news/etc… it works best if I give myself a requisite number of minutes/hours to fuss about it. And then I need to move on.
+I’m starting to learn that perfect is not only unattainable but unnecessary
+I’m happiest when I’m busy. But not too busy. There’s a fine line.
+You get back what you put out.
+When in doubt, lean into gratitude.
+I’m doing my best. And that’s all I can do.
+This, too, shall pass.
+Say yes and figure it out later.
+Good friends are hard to come by. Cherish them.
+Using castor oil to wash my face has improved my skin quality more than any other type of cleanser.
+Hold open doors, say thank you, tell the cashier have a great day. People don’t expect kindness. That’s sad. So give out kind words and smiles often.
+It’s not all about me.
+Everything will work out.
