Ok... In the spirit of new years resolutions and all that.... What are some of the things you learned about yourself (or life in general for that matter)?
That while it is important to have a good work ethic, and to do your job well, that work isn't everything. Nobody ever dies wishing they had spent more time at the office and a laptop can't keep you warm at night.
That your old jobs and co-workers don't really miss you when you're gone. We all like to think that we're indispensible, but the truth is, when we move on, they do too... and they all could care less if the door hits us on the way out.
That while I will never be a size 3 or size 13 for that matter, I need to do diet and exercise for me and not to meet society's expectations of the stick figures shown in fashion magazines.
And that life is going to happen, whether or not I choose to be part of it, and that living life to its fullest is important whether I'm single or with Mr. Right.
Well first, a Happy New Year to you all.
2005 wasn't so bad for me...ups and downs. I learnt that I can be happy by myself, in my own company, doing my own sweet thing. It's very nice to have somebody to do stuff with, but I cannot rely on someone else for my happiness and contentment, it MUST come from inside me.
Here's hoping 2006 just gets better and better x x
Lonesomedove..... very lovely pic sweetie! It's so nice to put your "face" with your name! You are a very lovely woman.
What I learned in 2005? I learned to not assume anything. I learned that just when you think things can't get any worse, they probably can.... but it doesn't mean that you've lost. I've learned to accept people for who they are. I have learned that I do deserve happiness.
Ok firstly, don't hurt me for what im about to say.
Hehehe ... I learned that I was being a prediduice little jerk. I have always preferred bigger women ALWAYS .... but it got to the point were i would laugh at a skinny girl in the same way a skinny guy might laugh at a larger girl.
So far to the fact where i used to joke about NSBA thats the no skinny bi**hes allowed.
I ended up dating a very slim girl but she accepted me for who i was off the bat. Maybe skinny people ain't so bad.... just alot of em ... ill still keep em in the back of the truck for camping .. ye know to rub together and start a fire....
but seriously skinny girls can be decent people too.
Hi Folks I am new to this site and was browsing through the posts and this one really caught my eye.
What did I learn in 2005 oh my god too much, L have only 6 months to go before I qualify as a counsellor, and boy if ever their was a course which gets you to learn and understand what makes you tick, then I found it.
I suppose the biggest thing I have learnt is how judgemental I can be and I didnt think I was, so all I can say is I am a work in progress and life is one long bumpy ride and it would be nice to have a passenger on board too, so maybe 2006 will bring that for me.
Ditto Zbig! Me too! This year has definitely been one for the books for me. Biggest lesson I learned this year was all in regard to the internet dating thing. You know how you ask certain questions of someone when you meet them on line in an attempt to get an idea of what the person is like? Generally first thing is age if you don't already know it. Do they have children, have they ever been married, what kind of work they do, that sort of thing? Well, I'm adding, "have you ever been in a mental institution before?" I SO learned this the hard way! Now I'm back to not trusting anyone again! I discovered 4 months into the relationship my perfect guy was schizophrenic and on psychotropic drugs. Oh what a year it's been!! LOL!!
ALl I can say is that 2005 was one of the WORST years of my life, I cant wait till its over which will be in approx 6 1/2 hrs (and am at work at the moment)... Not going to go into what happened , but I am going to be a much better person from it all I am sure
