Lessons Learned: August 2015

Another month bites the dust! August was a doozy. It was a really long, hard month. I think I'm still recovering from it, to be honest. One of the things that I learned from last month is that it's OK to take a step back and remove some things from your very full plate. I won't go into that again here because I wrote about that in my newsletter (sign up here so you don't miss out on the fun!), but I did learn some other valuable lessons from August that I want to share. 

I married a keeper. Well, obviously, I already knew that, it wasn't something I just discovered last month. My hubby and I have been together for 14 years. There aren't many surprises left when you've been together that long. All depths have been plumbed (that's what SHE said). We know everything there is to know about each other. 

But what does surprise me is that our love, which began when we were in high school, is still just as strong today. It may have changed and evolved over time. But it's there, always. My North Star, guiding me through some tough times lately. When I'm in my funk, just being in the same room together cheers me up. Or when our feet find each other under the covers. It's the little things. I noticed the other day when we were at the mall that we always touch each other. Maybe it's holding hands or just rubbing an arm or standing really close. It's like a reflex. I don't know what I'm trying to say other than I know I'm lucky to have a love like this.

OK, you can barf now. 

Duh. But I've had a lot of trouble focusing lately. I've lost count of how many times I've started to do something and stopped midway and started something else and completely forgot what it was I set out to accomplish for the day. The TV will catch my attention or the kids will talk to me about something or the time-suck that is my phone will go off every 5 seconds. It's too hard to get anything done when I'm letting myself get pulled in a million directions. FOCUS is my word for September. 

My 3 favorite posts from August were:
