Lessons learned, then relearned

Reflection is the name of the game for me in January. I can’t help but do it daily.

Now having some time, I’ve begun the process of going through pictures from the last two and half years of living abroad; all the trips, moments captured, and memories. However, there is one picture that I absolutely loved and it was taken just prior to moving to England. Elliott was at a prestigious school in the middle of an American desert and had an awesome white board filled with cards and pictures from friends and family, a calendar, a countdown until graduation, andĀ a list of items to remember daily (bottom left corner). I took a picture of this the board the day before his graduation from this school because the daily reminder listĀ melted my heart:

It reads:
Appreciate what you have
Avoid “what ifs”
Stay Positive
Disconnect
Less Caffeine
More Sleep
Less Negativity
More Perspective
Meditate
Jen!

I think the last one could definitely be substituted with “Family!” but the overall list is wonderful. And a great daily reminder of the things that matter in life.
