some lessons from 2011
~ people can be prepared, whether it's through impressions, intuition, listening to the whisperings of the Spirit, for events or changes before they actually manifest.
~when it's over, it's over.
~trust your gut feelings.
~sometimes taking the unexpected, scary, and unknown path might turn out to be the journey the Maker always had in mind for you in the first place.
~this vegan way of eating can be very satisfying.
~there are so many good people in this world.
~trials and challenges really are instruments in learning and growth.
~people, relationships, and feelings are more important than programs, procedures, and protocol.
~everyone has some kind of inward and unseen insecurity, doubt, and struggle not apparent or manifested on the outside.
~distancing myself from God, doubting His love and care only leads to bitterness.
~things never stay the same. People don't either.
~I can't change the past and I can't control what may happen in the future, but what I do have is today: living in the present, in the now. Peace and happiness is right before me if I can just see and remember this truth.
~sharing makes me happy.
~it can make all the difference in the world when you know and feel another's genuine and sincere love, interest, and care.
~there are certain people (earth angels, really) that come into your life right when you need them the most.
~people can change in unexpected, surprising new ways. Allow for patience, baby steps, time.
~a simple life is the best life.
~it's good, it's okay, and it's even important to be alone sometimes.
~it takes a conscious, deliberate effort to really see, to know, to capture my life. Opening my eyes to the beautiful, the happys, the simple blessings that make up a wonderful life is a choice.
~there are dormant, undiscovered talents and abilities, things about myself that I never knew were there.
~miracles can happen.
~the grace of God is always there, even with all I can do or can't do or won't do.
~interaction with others is crucial to a happy, balanced life. Even when you think you don't need it. Isolation and distancing oneself isn't always such a good thing.
~ "gratitude unlocks the fullness of life; it turns what we have into enough and more." Oh this is true.
