My amazing friends.
A broken heart.
Doing everything wrong and learning from my mistakes.
becoming vegetarian and purchasing (and using) my treadmill. Those actions helped me loose 45 pounds.
Going to nerd camp for the first time, having the best 3 weeks of my life, and finally finding somewhere that I cam truly be myself
the attention from boys I have been getting- not only has it helped my confidence, it’s helped me realize that I don’t need to be in love to be happy.
me getting sick and me getting better. it made me look deeper into myself and se more of my potential and hopes for my life.
my first kiss
Finding out you can’t really judge a book by its cover. That you do not need to be in love to be happy. Finally accepting that this is who I am and I can’t be someone I always wanted to be and I am happy with that.
Learning who my friends are, what I want, and what I need to do to get it
Getting my heart broken by a boy but put back together by a man
I really don’t know. I find that there have been so many experiences of so many different types that it’s difficult to single one out as the one I appreciate the most. In reflecting on it now, however, I am compelled to say this experience right now of being brave and venturing up my opinion even in it’s uncertainness. Followed a close second by the experience earlier this year of discovering my own voice again, and my restored ability to articulate what I feel and think and am.
My first real broken heart. It is helping me find happiness and gain confidence and realize that I was never really so much in love. I’ve gained so much from the experience that I initially thought was the end of the world.
Finally getting to meet my mom for the first time. FYI I’m 45 yrs old
The birth of a granddaughter and a trip with my dear friend.
Holding my new baby and spending more time with my family than in previous years.
Spending thanksgiving with my family!! falling in and out of love
being on the dance team.
gained confidence in myself
The opportunity to travel to many place outside the US
All the hard times. That is what have made me strong. I remember how hard it was at the time, but now I am thankful because I am stronger.
Also I am really happy that I have finally found who out my real friends are. It feels like I have found myself. I love that.
having a nervous breakdown helped me discover more about myself.
trimmed my possession, all my possessions, in one package and left and started my new life
Exercising and seeing the results in my body after a long summer doing nothing.
my first love I never thought I would find somebody and thought me not to be afraid to let people in.
falling in love . . . again . . . with someone i haven’t seen for 40 years.
I would have to say mine occurred after I gave everything I owned away and moved into my car. I have stayed from hotel to hotel. I have stayed from friends to friends. I have even stayed at a few strangers houses. I have learned that life… is really taking every moment given to you and choosing, then accepting the results of your choice. Along the way you travel along “ripples” of nature and others choices in life…the secret is to be open to everything that you experience from weather to event with love…
the little things, like summer days. just the sun, the breeze, the calmness and serenity. i realized how much i love nature.
While the severe depression I have suffered from has made me stronger, I do not appreciate it, it is a horrible experience that I almost didn’t make it out of alive, and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
I appreciate GETTING OVER it. Recovering. That is still something that I am working on but I know it will happen.
And I appreciate my true friends, the ones who stuck by me through the worst times <3
Being in high school.
everything I learned in the pack
Falling in love with the person I’d least expect.
My boyfriend breaking up with me after I put my all into the relationship. Made me realize I deserve the same amount of respect as I put out. And to never settle.
Going to ultra for 3 days with my friends. It was the best experience of my life and I will never forget it.
Finding out the truth about being cheated on!
Learning more about myself.
All of my mistakes.
losing my virginity & learning more about myself through mistakes that i’ve made and relationships i’ve built.
The love of my life breaking up with me.
Painful, but made me take a good long look at myself.
But it pushed me to become the person I want to be.
This weekend, when i first visited, saw and fell in love with my girlfriend after we met online some weeks ago.
