We think oftentimes of our children when we say learning. It is easy to forget that while we are adults that we are still learning. I have a LONG way to go, but I feel like I have learned a lot this year. I thought that I would share some things that I have been learning.
1)I have a hard time listening. I don't listen well, and I tend to cut people off and when they are talking I tend to think of other things. I have a hard time paying attention to others. I am learning to try to keep my mouth shut and listen.
2)I like things around the house to go my way. I want the kids to do things the way I want. I am learning that not EVERYTHING must go my way. I need to be quiet and let my husband take the lead more.
3)Life doesn't always turn out the way that we want it to...we won't always live where we want. Things aren't always going to be how we want them to be. I am learning to go with the flow more. I am learning that I can make our lives bad or good sometimes with my attitude.
Things I want to be better at:
1) I want to learn how to be a friend. I am NOT good at making friends...I tend to want to be someones friend, and then I pull back because I am afraid they will reject me or talk about me behind my back.
2) I want to have a more quiet spirit.
3) I really want to learn to be more content...not always thinking about moving on to what is coming tomorrow, but what is today and enjoying it.
