10 Lessons from 2011.

Yes, 2011 had it’s challenges. I was part of the group cheering it off the clock yesterday. But there’s no denying the lessons I learned during the worst–and best–times. Here are my top 10:

  1. You CAN lose power for days–weeks, even–in this day and age.
  2. There is always something to be grateful for, even when it takes a while to find it.
  3. The universe is always working, if you’re open to it. Even when something seems like a catastrophe, it’s probably working for your highest good.
  4. It is possible to become debt free and build wealth. On any salary. Thank you, Dave Ramsey!
  5. It’s okay to not be who others want you to be, or act how they expect you to act. I can be immune to those opinions.
  6. My voice does count.
  7. Families should love each other unconditionally. If someone in my family doesn’t, it’s on them. Just like if I don’t, it’s on me.
  8. No one is going to hand me confidence. I have to decide to have it.
  9. Dreams really can come true – thank you, John Talbot!
  10. Having your health is everything.

Let’s all have a healthy, blessed, prosperous, productive new year….with lots of lessons.
