october epiphanies

This month I have had many "lightbulb" moments.

1. You learn at least one thing from every person that you meet
Lately, I have realized that I am blessed with so many amazing people in my life. Not that I hadn't known this already, but this month I have made a special effort to find those specific lessons that other people are meant to teach me. Some lessons I have learned so far are:
a. Having a positive attitude makes you the happiest
b. Being different doesn't make you weird
c. Someone will always love you for exactly who you are
d. Be a good listener
These lessons, as well as others, are specific things I have learned from specific people that are or are not very close to me. I am thankful for these people and the things they have brought into my mind, to really think about

2. Life is full of "we'll see" situations - and that's okay.
Sitting on a friend's bed the other night, we discussed the goings on of our lives and realized that much of what we were talking about was unable to be fixed at the moment - not necessarily all problems, just situations we could not see the results of while we were about to go to bed. We talked about life in a very deep sense, knowing that there was a plan for each of us, but a plan we could not see beginning to end yet. After semi-complaining and wondering what to do, we both channeled some sort of optimism and came to the conclusion that things will happen as they should. There was no point in hypothosizing what would happen, because in all honesty - neither of us knew (or know) what would happen. And so, epiphany #2 concludes. We ended up ending the conversation feeling better about where we were headed, because we both knew that ultimately we are headed in the direction that we need to be going.

3. Buttered Popcorn Flavored Jellybeans. What The Heck?
Jellybeans are absolutely delicious.
but - what the heck was Jelly Belly thinking when they made a buttered popcorn flavored jelly bean.

So that's it for the month of October. It is now November, (which is crazy because time goes by super fast) and I know more lessons will be learned as life goes on.

Life is one big lesson and I love it.
