Lessons Learned: 26th Birthday Reflections

Today is my 26th birthday. 
Today I celebrate 26 years of life, blessings, and adventures. 
What better way to mark this milestone than to 
reflect on some lessons learned this year? 

Here we go...
  • I have a choice, every moment of every day, to choose love, to choose God, to choose joy instead of choosing anger, sin, or discontentment. 
  • People come in and out of your life, and that's OK. 
  • Loving on Kindergarten students is hard work and a deep investment of love. 
  • Wear more dresses.
  • Take walks. 
  • Accept forgiveness and keep moving. 
  • Never, EVER promise people that you are coming home for a visit until you've booked the airline tickets. 
  • Don't take your youth for granted. Aches, pains, and indigestion suck. 
  • Simple is usually better. 
  • Be a morning person. 
  • Try making it yourself first. 
  • Devote yourself to prayer and the rest will follow. 
  • You will make time for what is important to you. 
  • "Talking with quiet confidence will always beat screaming with obvious insecurity." 
  • Being debt-free is well worth it. 
  • Pray for your spouse continually. 
  • Enjoy each season while you're in it. 
  • Learn contentment. 
  • God has a plan. Take it one faithful moment at a time.
