My April Lessons Learned are...
- Expectations, at times need to be assessed and reshaped. Often what I expect of myself as a mom is unfair, unachievable, and defeating. (I learned that here.)
- Revisiting my past, is enlightening! I found that, truly, I am a work in progress and the times that were the hardest, I learned from and became a better me. (as evident here, here, here, and here)
- Stepping outside of my comfort zone is scary, uncomfortable, unnerving, and intimidating but nonetheless wonderful! Facing and embracing those moments (here and here) helped me build confidence that I would not have otherwise had.
- Lastly, and I believe most importantly...I have learned that I am strong...and those aspects of myself that I formally thought were weak, pathetic, and fragile are, in fact, my strength! (most notably, I realized that here - my favorite post thus far!)
What did you learn about yourself during the 30 days of April?
