Things I Have Learned 2012


We're 19 days into this year but I have already learned a WHOLE lot of lessons. This year literally started with a bang and the insanity has not stopped yet. Fortunately there is SO much good mixed in with the crazy that I am not letting anything get me down!

Here's what I've learned so far.....


I've learned that you can miss someone without actually wanting them back in your life. You miss the things they do or say, at the same time knowing you could never be with that person again, whether it's as a friend or something else.


I've learned that you can "know" someone for nearly 8 years but never truly KNOW them.

I've learned that you can be the best friend that you know how to be to someone, and sometimes it's still not enough. And it's time to walk away.

I've learned that there are people out there who really will do what they say they will do. And they are the people I want in my life.

I've learned that there are other people who will do truly malicious things out of pain or anger. And to watch my back.

I've learned that leaving doesn't always mean giving up. It means having the strength to move on, and search for happiness on your own.

It is like we wrote the same blog from the same place in life. You stated it well and it was good to be reenforced by your words.
