What have I learned in the last year and a half?
I have learned to listen to my energy stores. I have learned to focus on the things that give me energy. I have learned to focus on the people and things that feel like wise energy outputs. I have learned who I can talk to about what, and who I cannot. I have learned that money is energy and where I spend my money is a reflection of my values. I have learned that a clean, uncluttered home restores my energy. I have learned that I need fresh air, and nature. I have learned that there is a difference between self-improvement and changing oneself to fit in. I have learned that if I can manage pigeon and frog pose, I can manage anything. I have learned that taking advice is not mandatory and can be adapted to fit my needs. I have learned that I know and love my family because of our differences, not despite them. I learned that I have the right and also the responsibility to respect myself. I have learned that I can live with less, and in fact thrive with less. I have learned that I stronger, bravery, and more patient than I thought I was. I have learned that my kids’ happiness is a direct reflection of my own. I have learned that I still know how to put my hand up when I think I have the answer. Most of all, I have learned that I have to spend my energy wisely in order to survive both good and hard times; and that those two things are not mutually exclusive. Things can be good AND can be hard.
