Lessons Learned in 2020

  1. Hard stuff comes when we aren’t ready for it, but that hard stuff doesn’t have to define or derail us.
  2. Family, and friends who are like family, show up when we need them-even before we realize that we need them.
  3. There is no room for pride in relationships; when we need help, we must learn to ask for and accept it humbly.
  4. Change is hard, no matter when it comes, but it causes us to examine areas that we often neglect.
  5. Prayers really are important, and as our family has been the focus of many prayers this year, I can tell you those prayer are powerful.
  6. Fear is a nasty manipulator who tries to convince us that isolation is best; we were never meant to do this life alone.
  7. Hugs don’t fix things, but they sure make us feel loved and cared for in the middle of total chaos.
  8. It’s okay to slow down, rest, and relax; but it’s not okay to grow sedentary, idle, and lazy.
  9. Helping others is a sure way to turn our focus from ourselves and our issues and realize that many others have it way worse than we do.
  10. It’s okay to chase our dreams; as a matter of fact, we will feel more whole and energized if we allow ourselves to dream.
  11. Depression is real and can impact anyone; admitting it, saying it out loud to someone and seeking help is imperative to our physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional health.
  12. “No,” is a complete sentence with no need to explain or justify our reasoning or decision.
  13. Teaching ourselves to rest is imperative, because there will come a time when we are forced to rest and if we don’t know how, life can become miserable.
  14. The power of presence is one of the most important gifts we can give to those we love.
  15. When we are weak or when we are strong, God is the Rock we must build our lives upon in order to make it through; He alone is our strength.
