Lessons Learned

I was reading my blog posts from a year ago and before, and I felt a self-pity I never felt before. I felt sorry for my former self. I wasn't as strong as I was now. I felt completely out of control of my life. I wish I could go back and tell myself, everything will be ok. You will get stronger, you will fight for what you and your family needs, and you will get it. A year from now, you will be an actual, functioning adult. You will have your own place with your husband and daughter. She will grow into a beautiful 2 and a half year old in a loving, safe environment. You will be a real family. You'll pay the bills, eat dinner together, go for nature walks, and have true happiness.

If I could go back, I would say, don't be afraid to be hope. And never give up, you CAN have everything you dream of, if you work for it. But I guess those are lessons you can only learn by living life. I can only hope I remember this when I'm trying to teach my daughter things she really must learn on her own...


Hi there Camille!

Life is a series of lessons. And yes, I do agree with what you said that "those are lessons you can only learn by living life"! So true!

Btw, thanks for your comment in my terrific 2 toddler post! Yeah, kids leveling up nowadays pretty fast! :P

Yep, the lessons just keep coming! Hahah. And by the way, I love that term, terrific twos! Much better than the terrible twos, I get tired of hearing that phrase. -_- I am definitely going to say that from now on, my daughter is in the terrific twos stage! (Well, until her next birthday, of course.)
