With the end of the year coming fast, I usually do a reflection blog…This year, I think it’ll just be over a few blogs, random tidbits here and there. So here are Thirteen Realizations I’ve had about myself & my life this year…
1- I have a VERY addictive personality. When I find something new, whether it be a game or an app on Facebook or anything else in my life, I get passionate about it and it becomes my obsession. It’s the same with a book, movie, TV show or anything else that might give me more than just a fleeting satisfaction.
2- As much as I love going back home and I feel whole…and I get homesick a lot, I don’t want to go back after I finish school. There is a LOT I want to do with my life and I want to make my life here in the US.
3- I have a lot of patience and in a lot of ways, I am stronger than I realize. When talking about some events in my life from over the last 4 years, it’s amazing how much people’s reactions give me something to think about. Not everyone could handle what I went through with as much patience apparently.
4- I am very easy going and don’t get offended easily. I let a lot of things slide but when I hit my limit, that’s it. That.Is.It.
5- I CAN’T fix everything that’s wrong with everyone I love in my life and I cannot make everyone happy but I sure as hell can try to make them smile at least once a day.
6- I have a lot of unresolved feelings in my past and those surface whenever I’m super stressed out in
7- If I don’t concentrate, I canNOT get shit done. Period.
8- My body’s giving out on me. I used to be able to stay up days in a row and still be functional. Now I’m lucky if I can go through the motions on a few hours of sleep.
10- I still have absolutely no idea what I want to do with my life because I want to accomplish a LOT.
11- I may not be where I want to be in my life at this point…but I’ve never given up. It may not feel like it to me but that’s an accomplishment.
12- I get frustrated very easily sometimes and when I do…sometimes…I throw temper tantrums. I do have the best friends who aren’t afraid to call me on it and snap me back to focus.
13- I have never felt this way but today, someone paid me the best compliment. She told me that I was born with the gift for writing. That is probably the best compliment anyone could ever give me. Now I just have to buckle down and keep writing.
