I learned valuable lessons from my failures.

I think it shows maturity when you try to learn from your mistakes. I learned from my failures. Actions and reactions have consequences. I think first before I react to a stimulus. I know I have been through a lot but I believe in God. I was healed by God. I felt alone for a long time but I am making a conscious effort to pray and seek God. Spirituality saved my life. I got teased and taunted a lot as a child. I would feel so sad when kids would bully me. I was bullied when I was a child by these two high school drop out girls. I started to like myself as I got into my late 20s and early 30s. I thank God I can see myself through different eyes older. I am forty. I look forward to my 41st birthday coming up in January. I try not to just focus on myself. I think of my aging parents. I miss my grandparents. They are both deceased. I am going out driving tomorrow morning. I hope to pass my road test and try to obtain my license.
