Thursday Thirteen: How Amy got her groove back!

Thirteen Things that I have learned in the past year!

1. I can't believe it's been almost a year since my engagement broke off.

2. I am definitely a stronger person for having gone through that.

3. I have learned that I can be on my own, and be okay and content with this. I am okay with silence and can sleep without worrying about being alone.

4. I have learned that I have some amazing friends who have stuck with me through the good and the bad!

5. I have learned that I can make it on my own--but I still need my mommy sometimes!

6. I have learned that I can manage all the bills, do the cooking and the cleaning, and even clean the toilet!

7. I have learned that a man does not define me and that I am my own individual person. It's also okay if I do not agree with everyone--I should have my own opinion.

8. I have learned that I deserve to be treated with respect and the love that I deserve. I also deserve to have someone who cares about me and thinks about me all day long :)

9. I have learned that I am strong enough to make major life decisions without someone else and that I am proud of who I have become.

10. I have learned that I am a pretty great person who any man would be lucky to have.

11. I have learned not to waste my time on people who don't treat me with respect.

12. I have learned that I can cry when I spill milk, have days that I don't want to get out of bed, and watch movies all day if I want.

13. I have learned that after 1 year, I will have gotten my masters, quit my job and moved, and become a pretty independent person.

This year has gone by fast (even though I didn't believe so at first!) I appreciate you guys sticking with me through the good and the bad. I hope that some day I can blog about finding a guy who fits descriptions above and understands me and cares about me for me. Stay tuned for that day :) Also, thanks to Goofy girl for the personalized banner!

Sounds like you have gone from strength to strength over the past months.

Life can be summed up in three words, as the saying goes: It goes on. You must be proud to have gone through it and survived stronger.

I think it's really wonderful how you've turned this around to make it a growing experience for you. :)

Secret Agent Mama said...

All things happen for a reason, eh? Good for you!

I'm so glad that you've turned this around for yourself! I read a great post the other day which I think you might like over at Icing. It's about romancing yourself, and enjoying life as a singleton.
Happy TT!

Fabulous TT! I am proud of you Amy. Know this: it is better and was better to find out he wasn't the one now then a few years from now. You will find your happily ever after and he will be lucky to have you! =)
