Things I’ve Learned Along the Way

It’s a new year, and one of my goals is to truely LIVE each day… not worry so much about tomorrow, but enjoy today for what it is… or at least make it through! 🙂 Here are a few things I’ve learned along the way…

1. Handmade gifts: great in theory, fabulous upon completion… a PITA along the way!
2. If instructions say “quick and easy” – it’s most likely difficult and long.
3. Your child’s emotional pain is worse to a mother than any physical pain on earth.
4. Love is a choice, and not based on anything external.
5. Sometimes you don’t know you’re stressed by something until you let it go.
6. There’s beauty in everyday things – birds flying, squirrels jumping, wind blowing. You just have to notice it.
7. If you let go of seeking perfection in your art, you’ll find you’re happy with what comes out in the end. And sometimes it’ll be perfect!
8. Holding your tongue is the best policy (HARD one for me).
9. Don’t pick at zits! *yes, they tell you this as a teen but you never really listen as a teen… to anything!
10. Sing every day, even if you think you can’t.

Just a few things I’ve learned along the way. 🙂 Have a great day!
