today i’m getting my prompt from weverb. you can find a running list of people who are posting prompts over at geekinhard.
prompt: what lesson did you learn in 2011 from the school of life?
i learned an astonishing amount this year. none of it came from a classroom. (next year, it will) i’m going to take a listy format for this one…so i’ve learned that:
work can be fun – there are truly supportive and amazing work environements that will foster growth and positivity.
relationships are hard work. there are no absolutes. everything is a choice.
i can believe in my own future. there are no bars in front of me, i am not trapped. i can take steps to more, just like anyone else.
i am not less than. i am enough. i am more than enough.
i am deserving of close relationships and they will come back into my life. i am evolving, always. i am not a block of ice.
i have dreams. i should cultivate them.
i have passions. i should find and follow them.
i have talent. i should use it.
i have not lost myself. that is probably the most important thing that sunk in.
what have you learned? feel free to link me to your own posts in the comments, for this prompt or any others. i am so loving the reverb community – i came in late last year and didn’t get as integrated as i liked. this year, i’m diving in.

Now in my wiser years I think everything offers up a lesson. They’re not always easy (as with death, loss, hardship) but there’s always a gift if we look – as you did and shared so generously.
yes yes yes to all of these!!
I agree with all of these! Life if full of woulds and shoulds. Now you just have to DO!
Thanks for visiting my blog! I love “I am evolving, always.” Isn’t that so true? I’ve learned that as long as we are alive, we can change and grow.
So many important lessons listed here; ones I think all of us could do with learning and remembering. And yes, I am glad that you have realised just how talented you are; don’t be surprised if I begin getting on your case about using it 😉
“I am not a block of ice” made me smile. Iceberg was an (affectionate, not callous, I promise) nickname a high school boyfriend had for me. It’s nice to thaw…
This made me very happy.
I believe I might just use your prompts – I like feeling like these are a bit of conversation. 🙂 Just as soon as I get on it…
You have many, many posts for me to read. They’ll be the last things I read tonight, because your words are good ways to end a day.
I love the way you love yourself, look up to yourself, and take care of yourself. I love the value you place on yourself. And I love that somehow it doesn’t sound like bragging or ego; it just sounds like Dominique.
