Thursday Thirteen!

Thanks to goofy girl for the cute banner!
I haven't done a 13 in a enjoy!
Thirteen things I've learned (this came out of the interview from goofy girl!)
1. I've learned that I can do a lot of things on my own that I never imagined.
2. I've learned that I can live alone and be content with coming home to an empty house.
3. I've learned that I can be okay without a man in my life.
4. I've learned more about myself and what I like and dislike.
5. I've learned how important family is and that no matter what, my parents will always be a huge part of my life.
6. I've learned that heartbreak is not easy and that even if things don't work out, that people are meant to be in your life for a reason.
7. I've learned that I will be okay.
8. I've learned that I can get through a master's degree, work, go to school and do internship and still be alive by the time it's Saturday.
9. I've learned it's okay to lean on people when you need to because if they offer, they really do listen!
10. I've learned that sometimes a bath and music is all you really need.
11. I've learned that books can be good to just "get away" for a while.
12. I've learned that friends can make a bad week disappear.
13. I've learned that writing is a way to let things out and that even if nobody reads it, it can still help heal.
What have you learned recently?

Suzanne said...

yes, women can be amazing multi taskers! Good for you. That's all life is, big lesson!

Amy said...

This is a late comment but I wanted to put in my 2 cents... you sound awesome and independent here... you have learned things I want to learn. You know my situation right now so I really feel like I have to learn some of those... and hopefully soon.

What have I learned?

That I guess if things are going to end, you can't fight it because you need 2 people dedicated to making something work. I have learned more about what I want in a person and that I don't want to always have to be the one getting things done, pushing things along... I don't want to be anyone's mama. I learned that I need to learn TO BE alone and be fine with it. (working on that)
