This week was filled with lessons learned.
I am a quiet person by nature. I sit back and observe for a bit and then gradually build up to be a part of the group or conversation. This may have cost me dearly. This part of who I am may have cost me an opportunity to know someone that I truly wanted to find out who they were. An opportunity to see where, if anywhere knowing this person might lead. I have never regretted anything in my life that I have done. But this, this possible missed opportunity will be one that I will regret. This being the most serious lesson learned this week.
The others are small things. Nothing important as the first lesson, but things I've learned about myself.
I need to be more brazen. I need to step up and ask for, work for, seek out the things I want or need in my life. Or would like to have in my life.
I need to spend more time out in nature. I come alive when I am out in nature. I feel free.
I prefer small intimate dinner parties rather than going out to a bar. I prefer a select few friends, diverse friends, so the conversation can be informative and lively, good food, and a good bottle of wine.
It's ok to cry when a wisp of a memory comes floating in out of nowhere.
This week was crammed with lessons. I really hope next week won't have quite so many.
