I’ve come to realise

My blogging buddy Megan gave me a little nudge to join her in posting things that I’ve come to realise. Please check out her post as she has some amazing insights plus she’s an all round lovely chick!

1. I’ve come to realise that it’s always better to follow your own path in life.

2. I’ve come to realise it’s okay to fail because the important thing is to try.

3. I’ve come to realise rejection can either make you crumble or make you more determined.

4. I’ve come to realise that I prefer staying in to going out and that’s okay. It’s also okay to spend your Saturday night watching X Factor!

5. I’ve come to realise that growing your hair is a real pain but will be worth it in the end.

6. I’ve come to realise I’m never going to love lettuce and I’m always going to want to eat chocolate.

7. I’ve come to realise there’s no point stressing about things I can’t or don’t want to do just because we’re β€œsupposed” to do them. I need to just do what makes me happy and not feel guilty about it.

8. I’ve come to realise that I’m never going to like Mondays but they bring us closer to the weekend.

9. I’ve come to realise that you’ve got to work to make your dreams come true and you can’t rely on anyone else to help you do that. Only you can make it happen.

10. I’ve come to realise that sometimes you can only really trust yourself or your mum.

11. I’ve come to realise that this year has been challenging but has helped me discover who I want to be and giving me something to aim and work hard for.

12. I’ve come to realise that I’ll never be skinny because I love my food and don’t like exercise but curves can be fabulous and some people would pay to have mine πŸ™‚

13. I’ve come to realise I look much better with make up on!

14. I’ve come to realise it’s okay being single and having my own ambitions, I don’t need to tick off all of life’s boxes yet, it’s okay not to be married with a baby yet. I’m only 28, there’s time to do it all if that’s in my destiny.

15. I’ve come to realise that I really enjoy blogging and although I’m still aiming to become a published author, I really already am through writing on here!

What have you come to realise?

  1. This is a great list Love!!!! It’s a list of a woman who is learning to accept herself. A woman who’s taken stock and understands herself. Can I say as one who is a few years older than you, your list is going to evolve. I can’t wait to see what lies in your future. I have a feeling they are all wonderful things. I’m staying tuned for that.

  2. 4. Ditto! A girlfriend said a mutual girlfriend thought I loathed her because I never go out with her. My girlfriend said, “Dude, the only reason we hang out is that I go over with movies while Ba.D.’s working and baby’s sleeping!” Then that lends itself to a certain kind of comfort on the weekends, which translates to hanging out with her then, too.

    9. I wish more folks would realize this. I spent my whole law school experience wanting someone to come in and rescue me, though, so I can’t say I learned this especially early!

    As for what I’ve realized? Parenting is not the horrible endeavor I expected, and is in fact my favorite of my life. And home? Where the heart is, at that moment, not in one physical place so when that place is gone you’re suddenly stranded. That was a good thing to really understand, versus superficially as I had before.

  3. I’ve come to realize that I have learned a lot from you, and that you are an amazing and inspirational woman. I’ve come to realize that we need to celebrate each other more, and recognize the good in the world or we become overwhelmed with negativity which is not helpful to anyone. I’ve come to realize that friendship can be formed in many ways, even with people you’ve never met.

    Thanks for a wonderful post!

      • I’ve come to realize that tears are a good thing. πŸ˜‰ Plus, like Sandi, I’ve come to realize that Americans spell it “realize” and British spell it “realise.” πŸ˜›

  4. Very nice. I’ve come to realize I need to slow down and live life. Letting things go by too quickly just doesn’t make for good memories, you know?

    Thanks for this post. Have a super day.

  5. I realize that others spell “realise” differently.
    That I can simplify my life even more after being laid off and no income:
    I don’t need make-up/styling my hair/dying my hair is not necessary. Grey isn’t the end of the world.
    I can wear the same clothes basically every day
    I have my blog/blogging buddies for free entertainment
    There’s netflix/hulu.com for free entertainment
    Being home & humble, enables me to be with my kids, and help them with homework and and sign them up for sports.

  6. Great list! I love this idea for a post.

    3. I’ve come to realise rejection can either make you crumble or make you more determined.

    4. I’ve come to realise that I prefer staying in to going out and that’s okay. It’s also okay to spend your Saturday night watching X Factor!

    5. I’ve come to realise that growing your hair is a real pain but will be worth it in the end.

    All three of these are relevant to my life right now. πŸ™‚ But number 3 is brilliant and once anyone realizes that, I feel life becomes a lot clearer and hopeful, at least a little bit more.

  7. Another great post. Can’t wait to actually get a computer so I can blog and be a blogging buddy of yours!

    I’ve come to realize the X Factor is wonderfully wonderful.

    I’ve come to realize I will always eat at least one ounce of chocolate a day and that a box of cereal will only last a day and a half…and that is okay.

    I’ve come to realize that I’m lost in life. But focusing on being lost only makes me more lost.

    I’ve come to realize that I detest any breeze of cold weather and I really should not be living in freezing canada.

    I’ve come to realize that I am addicted to reality TV. But I don’t believe they’ve created rehab for that…yet.

  8. 13. I’ve come to realise I look much better with make up on!

    Me, too. I never wore makeup until my senior year of high school. A guy actually came up to me saying I looked different and pretty. When I told him I was wearing makeup, his response was “Wow! You look beautiful. You should wear makeup more often.”

    Uh…thanks?

  9. I loved this post. There is a kind of “Well this is who I am: take it or leave it ” quality about it which is both vunerable and determined at the same time. It’s the kind of thing gutsy people write on the road to self fulfillment. Well done you
