Last year my word for the year was “learn” and as 2013 concludes it is only appropriate to reflect on some of the things I have learned.
I learned that having matching plates is extremely important when trying to obtain some sense of adulthood. (Here) Now I have 6 matching dinner plates, saucers, and bowls. Don't get me wrong, I am totally into mixing it up so that not everything is matchy-matchy, however the pictures above does not reflect that lol.
I learned how easy it was to eat vegetarian for a week. In fact many of these recipes (here & here) have become household favourites.
I learned that you can have it all but you might not have it all at the same time.
I learned that it’s okay for me to need my husband. I have always been a super independent, forward thinking kind of gal who thought that the idea of a woman needing a man to be outdated. It is true in a sense. Women shouldn't need A man or men in their lives but when you find the right one, the one that you create a life with, there is nothing wrong with needing his comfort and support. I need this from my husband along with a whole list of other things. Admitting this doesn't make me any less of a woman.
I learned that completing my bachelors degree is super important.
I also learned that slowing down is the antidote for a hectic life and it makes for a calmer life.
What’s in store for 2014? Will I make resolutions or have another word to live by? I’m over making resolution. All I want and all I have ever wanted for myself and my family is to be the best that I/we can be. I think that will do.
