Lessons learned during the holiday season

I guess it is because I am learning to love myself regardless of my flaws. Let me let you in on a secret. I used to be one of those folks that envied others, including members of my family.

I learned a valuable lesson and it is this: everyone is going through some sort of challenge. It is how they manage it that counts. I guess you can say that I am maturing.

Yes I am no longer that girl that would be holding pity parties for myself. These days whenever dark thoughts try and distract me, I pray and also try and get some writing done or my new favourite past time which is colouring in colouring books and trying to draw even though I am not that great at it.

Always forgive yourself first. If others hurt you, forgive them too. Do not hold on to grudges. It will hurt you later on.

Hello everyone. How has the holiday season been for you? Mine was a quiet affair but I prefer it that way. I believe that I am at a more happier calmer place now than I have ever been in years.

I guess it is because I am learning to love myself regardless of my flaws. Let me let you in on a secret. I used to be one of those folks that envied others, including members of my family.

I learned a valuable lesson and it is this: everyone is going through some sort of challenge. It is how they manage it that counts. I guess you can say that I am maturing.

Yes I am no longer that girl that would be holding pity parties for myself. These days whenever dark thoughts try and distract me, I pray and also try and get some writing done or my new favourite past time which is colouring in colouring books and trying to draw even though I am not that great at it.

Always forgive yourself first. If others hurt you, forgive them too. Do not hold on to grudges. It will hurt you later on.
