I Know This Much Is True...

Sometimes, random realizations just come flowing in your direction.  This is one of those times for me...let's call them mini-epiphanies maybe?!

I know this much is true:

You can pick your nose; you can pick your clothes...but you can NOT pick your family. (Most of them I absolutely adore though!)

Sometimes, it's the people you spent your childhood running away from that are the ones you most need to run towards as an adult.

Rome wasn't built in a day and my house won't be pretty by then either.  It may be a money pit, but the house is MINE!

No matter how hard you can't make everyone like you.

It's the really crappy days that make the good days shine even brighter.  It's those same crappy days that show you which friends you can count on to cheer you up. 

Sometimes it's the offer of wine or retail therapy or just a really funny text from a friend that can make life better.

My dogs make my life worth living.  I'd love to add another puppy to mix soon.

Some day, my prince will come...  But if he doesn't - I'm going to adopt kids on my own.

It's OK that life is like "Survivor" sometimes.  Whether it's outlasting your boss, outwitting a stubborn neighbor, or outplaying the evening traffic - at the end of the day,  you survived to play another day.

I don't have my dream job.  But I will someday!

Knitting, cooking and driving are three activities that I can do on "autopilot" and relax.

I'm not one of those people that are meant to have tons of friends.  Instead, I'm supposed to have a bunch of people who I can feel free sharing with and know they love me no matter what.

My life is better because of blogging.

I have a love-hate relationship with Christmas.


  1. I love these all! Especially the last one! I hate what people make Christmas BUT love that it brings my family together =D

  2. Lots of trues!
    Happy weekend!
    Kisses and hugs

  3. Ah, I agree with so many of these!

    Definitely the 1) not suppose to have A LOT of friends, just a bunch of amazing of friends who love me for who I am :)

    And with the Christmas one too. I love the sights and smells of the holidays, but loathe Christmas shopping and all other retail aspects.

  4. I like the one about no matter how hard you try, you can't make everyone like you. I don't like everyone so I don't understand why I think everyone should like me! Haha! :) Actually, to be more honest, I don't like most people! :)

  5. So true. I love this post as well. And a new puppy?!?!? AWWW! Do it!

  6. Awwwww!! I will always be there for retail therapy! And wine too!! ;)


I LOVE comments! Tell me what you're thinking. :-)
