Things I've learned in 2018

As 2018 closes, I'm reflecting on what I've learned this year...because it was a year of very hard lessons.

I learned....

...that no matter what happens, there are a few people that will always be there for you.

...trust is very fragile, and once broken it's very hard to fix...often times it's fixed with damage that can't be repaired.

...people change.  

...you can try to break me, but you will fail...and I will come out stronger.

...the kindness of strangers is overpowering.

...everyone deserves a second (and sometimes third and fourth) chance.

...I can live in about 60 square feet comfortably.

...who needs an apartment when you have your van!

...I LOVE my job!!! (and sometimes my bosses!)

...I'm undecided about returning to SFA.

...life isn't fair and that's OK.

...how to sew!!! 

...those that stick around are priceless and those that leave didn't deserve to be in your life in the first place.

...never judge a book by it's cover, and never judge a person by their past.

...the staff at Denny's is awesome!!!

It's been a wild year, and if I had my choice, I would do it exactly the same, with all the mistakes and all the heartache, because I've learned so much from everything that has happened.  I have my goals for 2019 but I"m keeping those to myself because they are my goals and mine alone.  However, I will post a few because it gives me something to work towards. But, that's tomorrow...
