Spending the last month writing about myself taught me quite a bit. To wrap up this month’s NaBloPoMo, I wanted to share a few things I’ve learned this month..

 

  1. There’s nothing wrong with being an introvert.

  2. Confidence is the key to success.

  3. Conformity isn’t a necessity.

  4. My thoughts/ideas are valid.

  5. Peace of mind is invaluable.

 

So tell me, what have you learned about yourself lately? Let’s discuss in the comments!

Setback #427

Oct
26

Setbacks are life lessons in disguise. Things could be going well and then BOOM, something happens to unravel everything. The feeling is similar to having the comforter snatched off of you and the room temperature is ice cold.

This week I had a setback involving my car. I spent the entire day of the setback pissed all the way off. I allowed myself that one day to mope around and after that, it’s time to plan and reflect.

Setbacks always remind me to be thankful. I’m this case, I’m thankful that I have the necessary coverage to pay for the repairs and a rental car. I’m thankful nobody was injured, including myself.

Things can always be worse than they are. Be thankful that they aren’t and learn from them. Life is too short to repeat mistakes.
