lessons from this week

lessons from this week


On the heels of what may be one of the most interesting weeks of 2013, I thought I’d share a few of the gems I learned {remembered}.

1. Be yourself. The real, true, bare naked version of yourself. The one your family and closest friends love. The you that your heart is happy with. Even when it means making yourself vulnerable.

2. Trust yourself. Even when you don’t have all the answers.

3. Your gut doesn’t lie. Listen to it.

4. The people who come into your life like a bull in a china shop, and you adore in spite and because of their boldness – they are a gift. Even though a bull can only stay in a china shop for a brief time, they are there to show you something. Pay attention.

5. Doubt is part of living in faith. It sounds contradictory, but really, they aren’t. Doubt cannot be overcome without faith, and faith cannot grow without the asking of questions. Ask them and grow.

6. People will surprise you. Sometimes in the best ways, other times, not so much. In both cases, be grateful. A lesson is a lesson.

7. Love wins. Every single time.
