Hard to believe that another year is coming to a close. With all that has transpired, time to sit back, breathe, and remember the most important life lessons you've learned. You know them but sometimes you forget. So here they are in writing...figure you'd need them engraved somewhere...
1) It's all about self-worth. Know yours. What other people do and say is their business, not yours. So easy to get caught up in the actions (or non-actions) of those around you. But unless/until you know--or want to know--the facts, it's best not to react. Reactions without facts is a deadly combo.
2) Divorce can make one evil, mean, jealous and malicious. Or it can humble you. Rise above the hurt & pain, maintain integrity, be child-centric, and have compassion & respect for the sanctity of what once was.
3) Always trust your instincts. You were born with them. They are natures guide, intended to steer you in the right direction. Fight or flight, butterflies...whatever your inner self is telling you...be silent and listen to that soft whisper. You always know.
4) In the rush to have it all come together as you see it being, STOP! G-d laughs as you plan. The Universe has its own timetable for us. Have a vision. Feel free to keep dreaming big. Focus on your goal. But realize that you are exactly where you are supposed to be, here & now. Great things take time. It will unfold exactly as it's meant to.
Above all else, get rid of your stupid ego!!!
