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.

+Little irritants aren’t worth getting worked up over.

+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.

+And opportunities come back around and around again.

+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.
