For someone who barely got out more than 2 posts a month last year, 31 posts seemed like an impossible task. As we are, I'm writing my 12th post on day 30 so I guess you can say it's no walk in the park. Still, I have written more posts this month than I wrote in 4 months last year.
I am extremely blessed to have a fierce group of empowering friends. Most of them taught ME everything I know about friendship, so be sure to thank them for this post! Like most of you, I have also had my fair share of friendship troubles and have learned a lot along the way... and I know I still have a lot to learn.
How many times do YOU stop to think about, "Why does this upset me? Why did I act like that? Why did I take it that way?" I'm don't know about you, but it took me almost 30 years before I started asking myself that question.
I really hope you're not expecting some elaborate destination. This year we are cutting back drastically on our spending.
So, maybe boats and bottomless champagne is out of the question this year. Honestly, after writing this out, I'm 100% okay with that!
I've picked up on something. My kids LOVE to feel responsible, but they don't always love to put in the work because this is a prime example of delayed gratification.
Proud is something I'm relatively new to feeling. I've never really been a confident person despite my bravado. I've always kept my insecurities to myself (verbally) and I'm now realizing how that kept me from realizing the good qualities I possess.
