Things I Have Learned These Past 3 Months…

It’s been 3 full months since I last blogged… I keep thinking “I have to write about that…” and then life gets busy–super busy!!!  okay… I also get distracted–super distracted!!!

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, contemplating, and analyzing lately… and I thought I needed to re-start writing down my thoughts again… at least for my benefit!  But where do I start?  Hmmm… I thought I’d start with some things I have learned, experienced, felt, and thought in the past 3 months.  These are random thoughts in no particular order.  Some are fun (or funny), some are serious.  Some are shallow, some are deep.  Some are just plain silly…

  1. Disneyland really is magical!
  2. It’s really hard to lose weight when you love food as much as I do.
  3. I’m ridiculously blessed with some of the most amazing girlfriends in the world!
  4. When there is a good purpose, I don’t mind losing sleep to get things done.
  5. Easter reminded me that it was worth losing sleep to prepare to help people experience Jesus.
  6. Sleep, however, is under-rated!  I really do love sleep.
  7. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak… really weak…  (sigh…)
  8. Kids are more than capable of experiencing Jesus in a personal way!  When I hear stories of kids experiencing Jesus, it puts the biggest smile on my face.
  9. I feel alive when I’m challenged to think of ways to make Jesus real to kids!
  10. I really miss traveling and experiencing new people, place, and food!
  11. I think I may be a bit obsessed with juicing.
  12. I have the most amazing ministry friends in the world that challenges me!
  13. I go to a messy church with messy people… but it’s all good cuz I’m pretty messed up myself.
  14. Consistency is so important in helping toddlers and preschoolers overcome separation anxiety.  But it’s totally possible!
  15. I also feel alive when I get to train, equip, and develop kidmin leaders and volunteers!
  16. Clear communication is soooooooo important!
  17. You can never over-communicate!
  18. Maturity has very little to do with age!  I’ve met more mature 20-year olds than 55-year olds.  Sad but true…
  19. We all have massive baggage… we all need help!
  20. I’m a lot more selfish than I thought I was.  It was kind of traumatizing to come to that realization.
  21. Most Asians aren’t used to a loud, opinionated Asian girl who speaks her mind.  I really do have filter… most of the time…
  22. I really am an introvert…  I’m just good at pretending to be an extrovert.
  23. Why can’t someone figure out how to keep my lashes long without having to use latisse or revitalash every day?
  24. I really wish I could get a massage every week… I think that would contribute to staying healthy and sane!
  25. It really brings me joy when I get to introduce people to my favorite foods!
  26. People are difficult!
  27. It’s really a lot of work to grow in relationships with people… and that’s really what I spend a lot of my time doing… God’s amazing/cruel sense of humor…
  28. I hope to have a sense of humor like God!
  29. I wish I had “delete all and start over” button… I wish it almost every week…
  30. One day, I’ll just wake up and head to the gym instead of thinking “I really should get up and go to the gym.”  I hope that day comes this month!
