This week has been an insane teeter totter of crazy and horrible events. I really wonder if it has anything to do with the blood moon. There have been heart aches and miracles all around me. My personal life is also chock full of ups and downs. I have had much to pray about and so much to think about lately. I felt a need to remind myself of a few of things I have learned over the span 62 years. I confess that I do not always live these things to my best potential. But, I press on…

  • You are not unique. Other people have the same struggles you have; many struggles are worse and harder.
  • You are unique. There is not another person on this planet that is exactly like you.
  • You have been designed by God with the seeds of everything you will ever need in this life. Cultivate those seeds.
  • Your life has God intended purpose. Remain alert to your purpose.
  • Be who you are, not who you think others want you to be.
  • Be true to yourself. Don’t be a phony.
  • Think of how you would treat the person that you love and respect the most in the world. Treat yourself like that.
  • Be kind to others. Never rob a person of their dignity.
  • To have a friend you must be a friend.
  • Choose to build up, not tear down.
  • Don’t waste your time being a people pleaser. Please everyone and no one is pleased. Please yourself. At least, you will be pleased.
  • Not everyone you meet will like you. Don’t take it personal. We all have preferences.
  • Sometimes it will be necessary to walk away from people that hurt you. Do not take the hurt with you. Forgive them.
  • Life is a constant discovery. You will never know it all. Be willing to learn new things all the time.
  • It is okay to say, “I don’t know.” You slam the door to knowledge when if you always say, “I know.”
  • God meant it when He said He would never leave you.
  • When picking a boyfriend or future husband, pick the one who respects you, protects you and makes you laugh.
  • If you respect yourself you will recognize when someone disrespects you.
  • You do not need to say everything that pops into your mind.

And that seems like a good place to stop for now. If any of these resonate with you, congratulations! You are living La Vita Loco with the rest of us.

Carry on or press on. Do what you must.
