    Wow. Lots of good insights, but I wouldn’t call them effortless, lol!

    What I Learned From Disappointments (Not calling them rejections)

    I honestly couldn’t think of anything positive. So here’s some stuff I haven’t actually learned yet but am learning. I’m a work-in-progress.

    1. I’m learning to be a better listener.
    2. I’m learning it really doesn’t take long for a man to show you who he really is.
    3. I’m learning to keep really busy doing things I love. Again, not easy. But it helps with not taking things personally. You’re just too busy to even stew over things like that. Literally, no time. (Well, in theory. :-)) And that time is spent on stuff you actually like and are positive for you.

    That’s all I’ve got on this one, Jay. Workin’ on it.

      I agree, there were a lot of amazing insights shared on this episode. I appreciate Sam and Sparkle for sharing them.

      LOL! True…we have to first be willing to try the strategies before they can become effortless, but once we try…it’s totally possible for these strategies to be effortless.

      There’s nothing like learning. It’s always great to learn new things.

      Those are all AMAZING things Autumn!

      I’m still learning those same things. I love the process and everything that accompanies it.

      Keep working! I know God’s going to continue to transform you into the woman He created and predestined you to be.
