Reflection: April

April Reflections“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” ― Søren Kierkegaard

Each month, I set aside a chunk of time to reflect on the previous month: memorable moments, lessons I learned, how I spent my time, how I’m different, who/what I’m grateful for, improvements for next month, and goals to work toward. I want to be more intentional in my personal development this year, and posting each month serves as a way to help keep me accountable. If you have any big lessons you learned this past month, feel free to share them in the comments!

Here are three big lessons I learned this past month:

  • Surround yourself with good people. I’ve recently reconnected with an old friend, and it’s amazing how much we’ve grown in similar ways in our time apart. Our coffee tea dates are always so refreshing and re-energizing. She’s one of those people who inspire me to become a better person — and I love her for it! Plus not many other people are willing to hang out with me at 8:30 a.m. 😉
  • Don’t let others put a damper on your positive attitude. Over the past month, I’ve been in quite a few situations where it would have been really easy to let others bring me down. But by choosing to not let their negativity affect my attitude, those moments stayed positive for me.
  • Stressing about things that are out of your control doesn’t do anyone any good. Planning a fundraiser where all the original venders bailed could have really stressed me out. But I was able to keep an “it will be what it will be” attitude, and the event had greater results than I was hoping for (thank you, Jesus!)!

What has April taught you? I’d love to hear how you are growing!
