What things have you learned about yourself in 2010?

By December 21, 2010 - 12:58pm

Hi there,

I know I am only new here but I wanted to share some of the things I have learned about myself this year and would love to hear your thoughts on what you have learned about yourself.

1. I have learned I am important in the scheme of things and that my part in life is as important as any other small cog in the big machine of life - if I don't go, then the machine breaks down.
2. I have come to accept that I am not perfect and while I always strive to be better, I don't strive for perfection any more - having a few faults is a fun part of who I am.
3. I don't need my husband or my job to define who I am; I am really great at that all by myself :)
4. I can draw - at almost 50 years of age and after being told I could never do art, I am now an art student and this year sold my first piece.
5. I am growing all of the time and my best years are still ahead of me.

Have an awesome holiday break everyone :)

I really enjoyed reading what you've written. Especially the part that you've realized that you are really great all by yourself.

Hi Lisa

I'm sorry I did not see your Group sooner!

I love what you are doing now - taking up drawing; selling your work (wow!) and understanding the pointlessness of striving for perfection. I think there is something very dull about "perfectionists"; I much prefer faulty people - they are far more interesting and vibrant!

Thanks for your post and we hope to hear back from you!

I have realized that I have spent the majority of my life doing things solely for the benefit of others, even when I was unhappy or unsatisfied with making that decision. As a result, I barely know who I am anymore. I am now on a quest to find out who I really am.
