Goodbye 20's

As, I prepare to enter a new chapter in my life.

I’ve been looking back over my life and thinking of all the things I have learned. The years of the 20’s, I have learned a lot about myself.

I’ve experienced a lot of hurt in my life from family and strangers alike. I’ve learned that people will disappoint me in many ways. They are not going to always like me or have my best interest at heart. I just have to forgive and move on. It may have kept me down for a season but I’ve learned to not live my life as a victim.

Although, I am a friendly person and get along with just about anyone and most people do like me. I’ve always been a person that just didn’t fit in. Anywhere it seems. I just stuck out and while most people try to blend in. I didn’t. I’ve since learned to accept me for who I am and there is nothing wrong with me. I am who God says I am and I am okay with that.

I’ve had my share of relationships over the years, including a marriage that ended in divorce. I’ve learned to take my time in getting to know someone b/c rushing gets you nowhere fast. I’ve also allowed myself to heal from all the broken relationships from the past. So, that when I enter my next relationship.. I won’t carry any of that baggage with me. I will be FREE and ready to enjoy my companion, etc.

I’ve learned that children are very special. They help us when we don’t even realize it. I am very grateful to have been blessed with such a sweet smart child. That is just so AWESOME!

I’ve learned that it’s okay to make a mistake, just don’t make it again – once I know better!

I’ve learned that I am diligent and consistent when it comes to accomplishing tasks for others but not myself. I’ve learned that I am IMPORTANT too and the things that concerns me are just as important.. as the ones I do for others and I need to dedicate more time and be more consistent in my own affairs.

My life has not been all fun and it hasn't been all bad either. I am THANKFUL, I am still around to discover and learn more things about myself as I continue to evolve.
