i swear i'm wearing clothes, its just a strapless dress
i've learned that laughter really is the best medicine.
i've learned that the better i feel about myself, the better my day is. although sometimes vain, makeup on my face can make a difference in how i carry myself. sweatshirts are comfy but end up making me feel frumpy.
i've learned that some tears are worth crying. and that sometimes all we need is a really good cry. (stepmom and a walk to remember... my go to "i need a really good cry" movies)
i've learned that you can't fix people. you can only support them.
i've learned (er, am learning) that dreams are worth chasing.
i've learned that some battles just aren't worth fighting.
i've learned that blogging is an amazing source of friendship, hope, support, and laughter.
i've learned that money isn't everything.
i've learned that it doesn't matter the size of the ring or the house or even the wedding. if you are treated like shit, none of those things are going to pull you out of your deep dark place of despair and hopelessness.
i've learned that sometimes, very much depending on the situation, goodbye is the best thing you can say.
i've learned (again, learning) that really yummy food isn't always worth it if you hate the way you look in the mirror.
i've learned that exercise, although i dread it more than many, makes me feel a whole lot better after i do it.
i've learned that stepping in target can lift my mood. (don't tell me that's not true for you too!)
i've learned that people will judge you no matter what you do.
i've learned that sometimes, even your best friend won't agree with your decisions but you have to do what's best for you anyway.
i've learned that sometimes our gut knows the answer before we do. ("go with your gut" #ilovegibbs)
i've learned that i tend to overshare but it also makes me exactly who i am.
i've learned (learning) that communication is the hardest and most important thing in any relationship (not just romantic ones).
i've learned that God's timing is the only timing i can trust.
i've learned that we never really know what someone is going through.
i've learned that i am stronger than i really believe.
i've learned that a good hug can sometimes fix everything.
