Shall We Call This A Lesson Learned...

As much as I hate getting older, I love growing up.
I really do enjoy being smarter, being wiser.
I love knowing more about the world, about God, about myself.

I love when I am able to learn something new about who I am. Especially when it is something that I've probably done or thought or felt for years and have never acknowledged or paid attention to in the past...and now it feels so healthy to recognize it and move on.

Here's what I've learned this week...and have been processing a lot

1) My exhaustion and over-exertion manifest themselves as insecurity.
I'm finding that, as I become increasingly more overwhelmed or tired, I begin to spiral down a long path of silly, nonsense self-criticism. Which is mostly intriguing to me because: a) I'm a fairly confident person normally--not overly--but I'm not typically self-deprecating, and, b) As I become aware of this phenom, I've been able to stop it from progressing {not from happening, but from hurting}...

I've begun to wonder how much heartache I could have spared myself had I discovered this earlier...

I was not going to link to phenom, but then I looked it up and kind of giggled about the ORIGIN...
