Top 10 of '09

Top 10 Things I Learned in 2009

10. Good or bad...actions speak louder than words.
WAY louder.

9. Nail polish, a good pair of boots and jewelry can MAKE an outfit.

8. Music is cheap therapy...
blogging is free therapy.
I love cheap and free therapy.7. I deserve to be treated well.
I won't settle.

6. Anxiety will always rock my little world.
Oh Anxiety... I can mention you lightly & laugh about you at times. I can make jokes about my problems and call you "my biatch" for fun, but this year I learned you will always be with me. I mention embracing you & dealing with it, but man... I'd really love it if you would take a long hike.

5. Being taken for granted sucks, so don't ever take anyone you care about or anything that means anything to you for granted. Easier said than done, right? I know.

4. I'm strong.
I may break down and bawl. I may wallow. I may email Summer at 1am and worry her over my downers... sorry Sum :)
but when I'm done freakin' out the freaks

I am SO. MUCH. STRONGER. than I tend to give myself credit for.

3. Sometimes you just have to laugh at the sky & thank God for leading you down the crazy beautiful road he's chosen for you.

2. Sometimes explaining a frown is the easiest way to cure it.
(Kathy aka Mama Kat actually said that to me last year in response to my #4 "Smiling is just easier than explaining a frown." and it really stuck with me. So, so true oh wise one ;))

Drum roll please...
