This summer started off rough but ended on a pretty good note. Financial woes still persist but I take them in stride now and less panic. Panic does nothing to improve a situation.
Ten things I have learned in the month of August are:
- Life is too short to be miserable. It is not a new lesson but one reinforced by demise of a new friendship. It was short lived and hopefully behind me. I need to surround myself more with people that get me and love me warts and all. Gone are the days where I accommodate childish demands from grown people.
- I love to travel. It needs to be something I explore more throughout the remainder of this year and into the new one.
- People make time for those things they truly want to do. Also not a new lesson but one worth reminding myself of when others make it seem like I expect too much.
- Family is all that matters but not all family matters the same. Love all your family but value them to the same level they value you.
- Writing makes me happy. It is something I have grown lax with lately and I feel disconnected from life without it. I must make more time for it.
- Find what makes you happy and then work on it, foster it and it will bloom. Timing is everything.
- I want to invest in my spiritual side more. I am not a religious person but I like to feel spiritually connected to something greater than myself.
- Establishing your goals and limits at work will pay off eventually. Unfortunately not so much financially at this time. Networking is important.
- Driving helps clear my mind. Whenever something is weighing heavy on my mind driving clears it right up or preps me to tackle it again.
- I want to find my “person”.
