Yes I'm Writing One of Those Posts

Here are a few things that 2010 taught me:

I enjoy hummus. I like lemon hummus and red pepper hummus and garlic hummus and anything that isn't actually hummus flavored.

Walking away from a job, even in a recession, which constantly berated me for both "thinking too much" and "overthinking" was one of my best moves ever.

I would rather be who I am and alone than a more feminine/domestic/less sarcastic person who I am not.

I can cook. I once blurted out to my then boyfriend that I couldn't cook. He had told me to go make him some food. I had said that I couldn't do that. I didn't mean that I can't cook, I meant "I can't cater to you like that because then I'll have bad dreams about Gloria Steinem".

I love my life and where I am. Sometimes I doubt if I'm in the right place at the right time just because it's all so easy and simple here. However, whenever I tell anyone in nearby towns or even the whole state where I live they always reply with "lucky".

It's enough. My non walk in closet, and my standard size bathtub, and the rental agreement that isn't a house deed, and tiptoeing around so I don't wake my downstairs neighbor, and the constant hauling of all of my wardrobe across a parking lot to do laundry is enough. It doesn't have to be perfect, which is great because it's not, but it is amazing.

What did 2010 teach you?

I'm skeered: I'm not sure it taught me anything! Yikes!

But it reaffirmed that I'm incredibly lucky and that life is good.

I'm glad you are so happy. Here's to a wonderful 2011! Oh, and to answer your question: I think 2010 taught me that I need to say "no" more often! ;)

It taught me that I might possibly like hummus. I tried it again on my birthday and didn't hate it. ;)

I agree with Barrie! I have got to say no more often! And I need to not be so self-conscious, to just let myself have fun. Cue flash mob! :)
