It is sad that usually we learn things of importance after living the situation. Looking back can show you things that you didn't realize before. I had an experience like that just this morning. Sit back while I tell you of my aha! moment.
Yes, you read that right. It has taken me two years to finish reading a book start to finish without starting the book over. Which book is it? Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlett Letter. Yes I began reading it during the beginning of summer 2016 and just finished it today.
2018 has begun rather interestingly. I am not sure where the time has gone but my youngest child is now eleven years old, the oldest eighteen and preparing for college. As most of you know the youngest is autistic which makes for interesting days, she is becoming more independent so she's acting more like a teenager than a child at this point.
I discovered over the last few months that some things are meant to be, and some end because you know the situation is not right for you. It is easy once you realize that you can do better without the things in your life that are hindering you from achieving what you want to achieve.
Things are always happening in life, some good and some bad. You take it as it comes, let go of little things and move on. That's what you're told to do anyway. What happens when it is the little things that hurt you the most?
Sometimes you need mindless activity to keep from thinking about things. It helps to clear the mind. Let's see what mindless activities I indulged in to prevent over thinking while school was out over Christmas vacation.
When I left Alabama in 2013 and ended up in South Carolina I learned a lesson about purchasing items that I have been neglecting recently but intend to get back to. I learned I am capable of saving for purchase and things that come up. Another lesson that has fallen away lately, or maybe it was the increase in expenses. Sit back and I'll explain how this method works as it was explained to me. I'll also explain how it can help me to have the money needed for those surprises that come up during the year.
Recently I wrote about twenty years of lessons, one of them is something that I keep living repeatedly. It is one that I recently got a refresher course in, it is about relationships. Let's chat about it.
Life is full many things, for better or worse illusions are among them. Fairy tales are read to children at a young age to get them to sleep at night, the tooth fairy leaves money for lost teeth and Santa Clause comes down the chimney to leave gifts. What are some of the worse illusions in this life?
The last few months have been rather interesting. I learned a lot when I moved us home. The fact that I am still hot enough to make even those who claim not to be insecure and to be secure in their relationships insecure enough to imagine things would be the most startling of realities that I have recently experienced. The last few months are something that require examination as I look back on the events that led to this recent revelation.
