- People will always surprise you. They can warm your heart and make you realize you misjudged them at the onset. They can also go the opposite way and make you realize you held the bar way too high. Or a sorority girl will flip you off and bum you out bigtime. True story.
- You are limited by time and capacity. Though I know many people who truly believe they can be super mom or the most amazing entrepreneur/small business owner, etc etc, the truth is that they cant. No one can do everything effectively. Try to do it all and you will inevitably fall short in some area of your life. We are limited. There are only so many hours in the day, and therefore, you must choose wisely. What is worth your time? Who is worth your time? How much time to you spend running for naught and for your own pointless pursuits? What do you spend most of your time pondering? That is what you are living for. Scary isn’t it?
- It doesn’t take long to let a bad attitude fester into disease. If you allow yourself to stew over wrongdoings toward you and words unfitly spoken, you begin to let it eat you like cancer. Like I did with the mannerless (it’s not a word) sorority girl. It’s easier to think the worst of others than to have love and strive to hope for the best in any circumstance. Learning to love people is something that will take a lifetime of work- to not let my initial reaction be the one that I ultimately let prevail. Often what comes naturally is not the best route. So you have to train your body to do what you say it will do.
