Things I Learned in 2010

Life works in mysterious ways. Things have a funny way of working out. I just need to trust the process and know I’ll end up where I should be.

I really am not a 9-5, Monday-Friday person. I’ll take my working weekends and wonky hours thank you.

Some relationships are worth the extra work. Others just need to be let go.

Being myself will attract the right kind of people into my life.

The pressure I feel to succeed does not come from others, but from within. The expectations I put on myself are much too high.

Life isn’t something to be “survived” every day. I need to be an active participant in my own life.


My diet is always going to be a work in progress. My life is always changing, thus so is the way I eat.

My social anxiety disorder asserts itself into every area of my life. I will always be challenged by it, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t see past it.

Earthquakes happen in Ontario!!

Bloggers are some of the best people I know.

I’m a baker as much as I am a cook.

Gaining weight is not the end of the world and some extra pounds are worth the fun times that brought them on.

Eye masks are the best invention ever.


This country girl has a bit of city girl in her.


But when all is said and done, I’m still a country girl.

My only long-term life goal is to have a dog and a yard it can run in. Preferably with a house attached.

As much as I pretend to be a grown up, I still don’t have that many responsibilities. I need to act my age and be a little reckless sometimes.


I love my life. For a long time I thought I didn’t. But 2010 taught me that I can make life fabulous on my own accord. It’s all about the choices I make, so why not make some amazing ones :)
