better than i was

Some exciting things are happening in my life and I've been encroaching on some new territory here in the last couple of weeks.  First, I've made it four whole dates with a potential suitor and have kept my crazy in check the whole time!  AND.  I completed a race today with a wee faster time than my A goal, making today's race my fastest.  ever.  Go me!

And so, in tribute of my recent triumphs, I thought that it would be fitting to recap some of the important lessons that have made this place possible:

  • Hard work and constistancy are necessary ingredients for achieving any goal, although hard work doesn't always mean or look the same in every situation.
  • The way your body is used to practicing is the way it will perform.
  • Old habits and ways of thinking die hard.
  • Things cannot be removed from our lives without replacing them with something else.
  • The only real peace comes from knowing that God is in charge.
  • People who care about you will want to know who you really are.  Cherish them.  
  • You owe the loved ones in your life the time it takes to truly get to know who they really are.
  • Sometimes we relapse into bad habits so that we can remember not only how far we've come, but also how far we still have to go.
  • There is no shame in being a nice person.
  • When you feel pretty, you act pretty, and that is the pretty that matters.
  • Honesty and a good sense of humor about your shortcomings will put a lot of things into perspective.
