What I’ve learned in 2004

When I decide to let go and go where life wants to take me I get to enjoy the scenery much more.

The Universe has a pretty good idea of what is best for me and when it takes me off in a different direction should trust it’s instincts. (it’s been around a lot longer than me.)

My kids are by far the most precious people in my life. I am so thankful God has entrusted me to care for two such amazing beings. They inspire me daily.

That by believing in my dream and working hard I can do what I want to do.

That by taking precautions and having back up plans, I can do what I want to do.

That this life is so much more about the journey and the lovely people we get to meet along the way.

That even the people we may not care for very much still have just as much to teach us.

That I can drive a stick shift 10 hours to a city I don’t know and meet amazing new people and connect with old ones.

That life is as full of the life we allow to fill it.

That risk taking is SO VERY WORTH it.

That the best way to show your children how to live life is to DO IT YOURSELF. Example is everything to children.

That sometimes you can fix what is broken, and sometimes you can’t. No matter how many times you try. That is just the way it is.

That sometimes you have to hurt people in order to stop being hurt yourself.

That sometimes the right things to do is not the popular thing to do, but it still doesn’t make it wrong.

That trusting and valuing myself feels really, really good.

That having good friends and being a good friend is one of the most important things in this world.

That the hard, hurtful times help form and mold you just as much as the phenomenal, dreams-coming-true times.

I could go on and on I suppose. As we all could. but this has been a year of growth for me in so many different ways. I look forward to what 2005 has in store and intend on enjoying it and being present for all the different moments it has in store for me.
