Thursday Thirteen #19

Some more randomness, in the vein of last week's Thursday Thirteen.


Thirteen Things I've Realized Accepted Recently

1. I'm a book-a-holic.

2. I'm becoming more and more like my mother every year.

3. Being like my mother isn't as bad as I thought it would be. In fact, it's got its good side.

4. I'm never going to have a perfect diet.

5. Being perfect is impossible.

6. Still wanting to be perfect despite its impossibility will drive me crazy.

7. Being too nice will get me in trouble.

8. I really should trust my gut.

9. Building a business takes work.

10. Work is hard.

11. The benefits of hard work to achieve something you've always wanted will far outweigh the effort it took to get there.

12. I'll still have to work hard to stay there, though.

13. Taking time to enjoy the beauty of cherry blossoms and sunrises and warm spring breezes is necessary for my sanity.

Have you made any realizations this week?

I like your list. Re #10, yes work is hard, but I have realized that it's only work---it's not Life!

Kat said...

Great list! One day, you will be able to relax and enjoy everything you worked so hard for! Happy TT

Numbers 2 and 3 are so me lately! I'll say something and immidiately realize it is EXACTLY something my mom would say!! And you know, I am totally cool with that. Luckily, so is my husband because he notices it too!

Happy Thursday, great 13!

Interestingly, a lot of those apply well to the world of poker.

this is a great idea for a list! I'll be back on the TT train next week :)

I share #1 with you. And there's nothing wrong with it!

kay - True, but when you love your work, it often becomes a major part of who you are...

kat - I'm trying to relax and enjoy it now. The journey is the best part!

cecily - Glad I'm not the only one!

valtool - Hadn't thought of that...maybe I should learn how to play.

crazy daisy - Hopefully I'll still be chugging along, too!

nicholas - Nothing wrong with in, unless it starts to take over your life...and your house!

You've learned many wonderful things!

I'm becoming my mother too, thankfully :)

bleeding espresso - It's funny how 15 years ago I dreaded the day when I would say "I'm becoming my mother." Now, I'm actually proud to see any of her qualities in me.
