32 Spiritual Lessons I’ve Learned In 32 Years

Personal Notes, Spirituality

This week I celebrated 32 years here on this Earth with a week of special events and outings. Celebrating for a week is a new thing and just happened to coincide with vacation and a camping trip. This week has given me an important gift. Instead of only one day of reflection, I’ve been given nine. Nine days to reflect on how important living is, nine days to reflect on my friendships, my gains, and losses. nine days to give thanks for the things I have learned since starting my Mental Health Journey in October, nine days to feel gratitude for my family and that it is still here, whole and in one piece. Nine days to realize 32 of the most important Spiritual Lessons that I’ve learned in 32 years here on this Earth.
