Do Tell: What Was the Biggest Lesson You Learned This Year?



Since the end of the year is fast approaching, I thought it would be a good time to look back on 2007 and reflect on what you did and what you learned. If you're like me, you had your fair share of ups and downs this year, so ladies, do tell: What was the biggest lesson you learned through it all in '07?

- Pick your battles, and when you do, fight, fight, fight for it. - It's okay to fall in love. Just don't hurt other people in the process.

1. Hard work pays off. 2. I was wasting so much time in friendships that were meaningless and superficial. They were bringing me down and I finally realized that it's okay to break away from these people. Having one true friend is better than having 10 acquaintances. 3. It's okay to not have plans every single weekend. Sometimes it feels great to just relax and have some quality me-time. 4. Painful circumstances will inevitably come your way. You can either let the pain consume you, or you can rise above and grow from the situation. It's all about perspective.

Always put yourself first don't let a person destroy your confidence - sometimes they are out to get you because they are suffering themselves, not because it has anything to do with you or your worth work relationships are all about politics, and usually do not translate to an out of work environment well living on your own is awesome, but your parents will still take you back to the nest if you need it, and that's okay, there's no shame in it change happens, embrace it if you find a true best friend, don't let that friendship die!

I have learnt that having people treat me as if I am not good enough doesn't mean that I'm not good enough, it means I needed to find new friends who are there for me. I have learnt to not put up walls when in relationships. It's been a good year, even with the bad stuff. Hopefully 2008 will be as good if not better :)

LOL I learned almost the same things as Martini Ross: 1- People don't change 2- SOME People are selfish and don't care about hurting others as long as they get their way. 3- No matter how much you try to fool yourself that things are better than they are, they'll never change. Things are what they are and its better to accept them. 4- Love isn't always the most important thing. 5- Your family isn't always the circle you were born into. 6- Men are asses. 7- Being difficult won't keep me from getting hurt it will only keep you from finding a decent guy. 8- Hard work pays off. 9- Life sucks, but giving up is even worse.

I learned a lot this year, but the number one thing I learned is that MISERY IS COMPLETELY OPTIONAL. I was in a seminar for my job and this was one of the presenters points. It's so simple, yet so profound. If you're miserable in your life, you (and only you) have the ability to change it. You don't have to be miserable! DUH!

I realized a few things this year, the things that matter the most...the ones that sick to you...and want to carry with you on to the next. I see how important TRUST, HONESTY, FAMILY, AND FRIENDS are but the one that holds on the most is INTEGRITY of one self, and realizing who you are as a person, and who your becoming in the future.

I have learned that soda is SO bad and I will never touch it again. I have learned that it's easy to quit smoking with a lot will power and a pill called Chantix. I have learned that my dad ALWAYS makes me laugh. I have realized the value of my family. I have learned to NEVER EVER let my dogs out of my sight outside, and to ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS have them on a leash. I have learned that I can make it through the unexpected death of one of my dogs. I have learned that I can't be perfect all the time, cause when I try I make myself and everyone else crazy. I have learned that I can have a guilt free girls night. I have learned that the Sugar sites are helping me to become the woman that I have always wanted to be!

I've learned to be happy in the moment...and not think too much or over-analyze things. It just causes unnecessary anxiety.

I learned that you cannot make everyone happy all the time and it's ok to put myself first. I'm having a really good time with that. Not sure I can say the same for everyone else around me. They'll get used to it.
