I recently turned 33 and started thinking about my take aways from this past year. I like to reflect on the year and lessons I have learned along the way. You can check out previous years here: Yearly Take Away: 32, Yearly Take Away: 31, and What I Learned In My Twenties. Once again, I will try not to overlap thoughts or lessons from previous years. I am so thankful for another trip around the sun and looking forward to this year!
1.Take care of yourself so you can live your best version. There is no reason not to.
2.People open up when you do.
3.Ask people how you can pray for them. People who seem “put together” still have struggles you would never know about.
4. Listen and think. We don’t always have to respond to something or give advice.
5.If you are passionate about a issue, take action and be the change you want to see. Posting on social media isn’t some stamp of approval that we have created it to be.
6.Prioritize your home life and create a legacy for your kids.
7.Put your energy into the things that matter.
8.Have dinner as a family.
9.Create healthy routines or habits.
10.Apprecaite the differences in people.
11.Always strive to learn, grow, and evolve.
12.Doing things scared is better than never doing them at all.
13.Relationships are everything. We are created to be in community with one another.
14.Be nice to yourself.
15.Social media will always be a highlight reel and a small glimpse into what someone wants to show you…
16.Move your body.
17.Find people who lift you up and support you.
18.Spend time in the word and in prayer.
19.Your thoughts become your actions.
20.Ask for help if you are struggling.
21.Being a mom is the hardest and greatest job in the world.
22. Tell people you love them and what you appreciate about them…this includes your spouse and kids.
As always, sending light and love.
