So todays daily prompt for post a day is learning. (I know second day in a row I am using a daily prompt, but it sparked a lot of thoughts in me.)
I decided to take on this post a day challenge to give myself something I had to do every day. I have learned that I’m not the type of person who does well without something to do. I’ve had very few times in my life were I haven’t worked and not working isn’t something I like. I like to work. To feel like I have accomplished something, anything! To know that I was contributing in sone way. Something y’all may not know is that I was a preschool teacher for 10 years! I loved it! But like others before me, I got burnt out. It happens to the best of us. I knew I wasn’t making the money I needed to be making and wasn’t able to take care of my child the way I needed too. I have since learned that I can and have taken care of my son making a lot less. I’ve been learning a lot about myself since I have been hurt and can’t work. I’ve learned that some times it’s the little things in life that make you happy that day…Some times it’s as simple as being able to fold or hang up a load of clothes by myself. Today it’s Finally sleeping. (Yes it was from like 5am to 3pm, but I finally slept for more than an hour or two.) I am learning the hard way to wait. In the bible it says “Be still and know I am God.” Well, God has been teaching me how to do just that. He has answered prayers when I had nothing left besides faith that He would take care of it. I’ve learned that I have a few people that no matter what I can count on them. I’ve learned that my son can and will step up and get things done. I’ve learned that I have to accept my new limitations and can in fact live with them. I’ve learned that even though I want something or someone, I am better off without it(them). I’ve learned that I can still lend an ear to listen and prayers to give. I’ve learned you know who your people are by how they make you feel when you are around them.
And I’ve learned that sometimes happiness is sitting in the sun writing a blog and thanking God for blessing me with another day.
Love, prayers, and blessing my friends!
