Lessons, lately...

The past few weeks have been a learning experience. Last night I was in the car thinking about little lessons life has taught me lately. I started jotting them down (no, I wasn’t driving) and soon realized it might be fun to feature them on this little b-log from time to time. (No worries, they won't come to replace the guilt-frees, but this week they are.)

Lessons, lately…

If you're crying over a lost iPhone charger, it probably has nothing to do with a lost iPhone charger.

And sometimes you just have to cry. Long and hard. Cry until your pulsing head throbs and aches. Then you need to sleep. Sleep until you feel better. Crying doesn't fix anything, but it relieves some of the pressure. It releases it from wherever you've been holding it. You'll feel lighter, you'll feel free.

You can run, but everything else is running too.

An hour long conference call with your BFF is nothing like an hour long phone date. For some reason the other 4 people involved make things a lot more boring. But still make time for those phone dates too, and try not to worry about all the radiation your cell phone is probably giving you.

Have a favorite time of day, and enjoy it every day. Maybe it’s waking up at 3am and realizing you still have a few more hours. Maybe it’s the still quiet before the rest of the world wakes. For me, it’s the golden hour right before the sun sinks into the horizon. Everything takes on a rosy hue and the world seems a little softer, kinder. Even if I’m frantically rushing around at work, I look out the window and take a deep breath. Because deep down I know, in the midst of all the crazy, things are ok. The sun rises, the sun sets, the earth keeps spinning.

  1. I live by that statement- "The World Keeps Turning". Sure it doesn't mean that what we have to deal with now is easy, but it promises time for healing and progress.

    Hope you enjoy the sunset tonight and have a good weekend!
