Kait Mauro is one blogger I’ve followed for a while, and one I’ve greatly enjoyed for just as long. She recently shared an introductory / list post, Identity, as a way for her readers to come to know her in a brief, succinct fashion. I love lists and I love introductions, so naturally I was quite taken with the idea. A few days after posting Identity, she posted 5 True Things, a list of truths or, as she puts it: “5 things I’m learning lately”.
Being able to identify and define my truths as well as my life lessons has been a skill I’ve only just begun pursuing, but it’s one that I recognize as being invaluable to personal improvement.
So, with that, I suppose I’ll share my own 5 Truths / Things I Need to be Reminded of Constantly:
- Happiness isn’t going to happen if I’m not willing to make the declaration, take the risks, and chase it.
- As stressful as hurdles and struggles are when things already seem incredibly tenuous, recognize the value in the process, revel in the accomplishment — then get back to it.
- Being afraid is acceptable; letting that permanently stop all forward momentum is not.
- Not everything will turn out “okay”, but I will be more than alright.
- Go slow and enjoy.
