I know I said I hate lists a couple blog posts ago. But I lied. And then I wrote a list.
Here’s what I’ve learned this week:
1. I’m a hot mess.
No for real though. I leap before I look. I channel Peter and just step out of that darn boat and then I TOTALLY FREAK OUT and start SINKING! I nearly lopped someone’s ear off today, without seeing the situation was still full of grace and redemption. Oh, Peter.
2. I might actually be a grown up.
I’m a runner. When things get hard, I run. When I think I might hurt someone, I run. When I think they might hurt me, I run. BUT THIS TIME I DIDN’T RUN. I’m proud of me. And I’m looking forward to all the things I would have missed if I ran away. Grown up me is doing great things, people.
3. I really LOVE the internet.
This blog post is dedicated to Bethany and Kelley and Sebastian. Many miles and states between us, but oh how much wisdom has traveled those miles. Thank you.
5. I like swear words.
I’ll spare the explanation.
6. Sometimes screaming helps.
Okay, that one isn’t new. Yesterday I got in my car and drove a mile and screamed the whole way. Afterward I felt much better. (You should try this.)
