Think About These Things
Five things I’ve learned about myself over the last year:
1. I am somewhat of a controlled adrenaline junkie. Don’t mock my oxymoron. With age I have developed an eagerness for thrilling adventures and experiences, provided I have done ample research.
2. Food is not just for pleasure, but for nourishment. (Revolutionary, right?) For years I based what I ate on what “sounded good.” Since I have learned that food’s main purpose doesn’t always have to be based on enjoyment.
3. All friendships have their place. I blame my idealistic expectations for the juvenile belief that all of my friendships had to be the same. We are all on different journeys and in different places along the path.
4. Marriage is more than a noun, it is also a verb. It is more than who you are, but what you do. Being a wife is more than about the “Mrs.” and more about the day in and day out relationship.
5. Self discipline is the most valuable and rewarding of all human attributes. Be that physical, emotional, or spiritual, the ability to control oneself for good is exceedingly worthwhile.
What are some things that you have learned about yourself? It is fascinating, and imperative, the way we evolve and progress each year. If you are complacent, challenge yourself.
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” (Phil. 4:8)
