Lessons Learned

A little over a year ago, I made a conscious decision to be more reflective and introspective. In doing so, I’ve learned a lot about myself (and others). If you don’t mind, I’d like to share what I’ve learned (in no certain order):

  • (I’ve learned) how to have peace in the midst of a storm.
  • (I’ve learned) how to write (a little) better than the year before.
  • (I’ve learned) more about my body, the changes it’s determined to make, and how to deal with them.
  • (I’ve learned) how to be quiet (sometimes more than others).
  • (I’ve learned) who are my real friends and who are not.
  • (I’ve learned) I have to exercise no matter how much I hate it.
  • (I’ve learned) I don’t need, or want, to eat protein that comes from an animal that has fur, feathers, or a cute squiggly tail.
  • (I’ve learned) it’s okay to be sad sometimes.
  • (I’ve learned) it’s okay to be mad sometimes.
  • (I’ve learned) complaining doesn’t change a bad situation– action does.
  • (I’ve learned) fake people are easy to spot and who has time for such people? I don’t.
  • (I’ve learned) life can be really difficult, but with the right people around me, the hard times are manageable.
  • (I’ve learned) saying “I care” is way better (and more important) than saying “I don’t care.”
  • (I’ve learned) beauty isn’t about how my hair, skin, and body looks. It’s about being kind, loving, giving, and grateful.
  • (I’ve learned) how to be more vulnerable.
  • (I’ve learned) how to let go of toxic people and situations.
  • (I’ve learned) walking away from something that’s not working, or doesn’t feel right, is okay.
  • (I’ve learned) to love who I am– just as I am.

If you slow down a bit– listen, meditate, and allow yourself to be open– life will show you and teach you so much about yourself. Don’t let this busy world, and rat-race of a life, jade you and wear you down. Make a deliberate decision to learn something new about yourself, about your life’s journey, and about what you may need to change to get where you’d like to be.

Life is a beautiful thing, so take the time to soak in what all it has to teach you.

Until next time…

Everyday meditation:

Love life. Be Kind. Be genuine. Eliminate the negative, false, and vain. Peace, love, and happiness to all.
