I have seen Blessings......Galore and I am extremely thankful for each one. I have also seen some "not so USUAL" things happen as well.
I suppose that this has been a year of learning! I've had to learn to take the time to listen to God and I've had to learn to not hold back from HIM.
Giving up a portion of my "Perfectionism" trait has been a real struggle, but it has made me realize that there is much more to life than stressing over the lack of perfectionism that I like to see in OTHERS. Did you get that? I said Others, which is something that is out of my control anyways!!!
Another thing that has been difficult for me is the "Control Factor." What comes with expecting perfectionism? It's this thing called CONTROL. Gracious me.....I need someone to be in control of ME!!! Lordy, Lordy.....I'm a handful so why would I put pressure on myself by wanting to control others.
Oh, Oh, Oh........here is a big one!!! I really have learned to say NO this year. I'm not kidding you....I really can say No!! The good thing about saying NO is that it has relieved me of so much stress and the more I say it......THE BETTER IT FEELS!!!
As 2013 nears the end......I want to say that I am very thankful for each of these NEW accomplishments in my life.....the things that I have had to learn to change!!
I won't deny..... the challenges were very hard in getting to where I am at right now.....and I hope that this session of my learning is nearing an end. I'm definitely looking forward to
