...I have come to realize

I saw this on a good friends blog, and had to play along
***
I’ve come to realize that my job. . . offers me more then just an income, but also mental stimulation and peer interaction.

I’ve come to realize that when I’m driving. . . the things I hear on the radio can influence my mood for the remainder of my day

I’ve come to realize that I need. . .more sleep, and I am counting the days until EJ sleeps through the night

I’ve come to realize that I have lost. . .my ability to always be "suzy sunshine", but that is okay because I am learning to be more realistic in my expectations

I’ve come to realize that I hate it when. . . I am not in control

I’ve come to realize that if I’m drunk. . . I am breaking promise to myself, excess is just not necessary, and I do NOT need alcohol to have fun!

I’ve come to realize that money… is my least favorite thing to worry about (and yet I find myself worrying about it the most.) ((ditto))

I’ve come to realize that certain people. . . were brought into my life by God, and I am forever greatful for their friendship and support!! (AK/LP thats you!!!)

I’ve come to realize that I’ll always. . . be the outside member of the group, but I am getting better at marching to my own drum!

I’ve come to realize that my sibling(s). . . no longer need me to take care of them!

I’ve come to realize that my mom... does the best she can, and needs my love and support no matter what!

I’ve come to realize that my cell phone. . . is an extension of me.

I’ve come to realize that when I woke up this morning. . that I only have one more week until I return to work full time!

I’ve come to realize that last night before I went to sleep. . . I miss my husband at night, and I can not wait until EJ sleeps through the night so Max will come back to the master bedroom!

I’ve come to realize that right now I am thinking. . . of the knitting projects waiting to be finished within the next week!

I’ve come to realize that my dad. . . really did have my best interest at heart.

I’ve come to realize that when I get on Facebook. . . I put way to much stock into what other people think.

I’ve come to realize that today. . . . is the start of my new beginning as a mother...

I’ve come to realize that tonight. . . my husband will be camping with friends and I am running solo with EJ

I’ve come to realize that tomorrow. . . I will be going to church alone.

I’ve come to realize that I really want to . . . finish my degree, learn sign-language-and write a novel (all before I turn 40)

I’ve come to realize that the person mostly likely to re-post this is. . . LP

I’ve come to realize that life. . . is exactly what I make of it!

I’ve come to realize that this weekend. . . is going way tooo fast

I’ve come to realize that my friends. . . are a choice...so I must choose, and choose wisely! (insert last crusade joke)

I’ve come to realize that this year. . . is my chance to become the potential so many see in me

I’ve come to realize that my husband. . . is the person I trust most.

I’ve come to realize that maybe I should. . . be washing dishes instead of blogging

I’ve come to realize that I love. . . my internet friends, just as much as the ones that knock at my front door (if not more in some cases)

I’ve come to realize that I don’t understand. . . the motives of some people

I’ve come to realize my past. . . has happened, but by God's grace I am forgiven

I’ve come to realize that parties. . . are not for me

I’ve come to realize that I’m totally terrified. . . repeating the mistakes that scar me

I’ve come to realize that my life. . . is just that, my life.

**I use my blog as the one place I do not filter what is on my mind (if anyone real-life reads this and is offended I am sorry, this is for me to process and share and never for you to feel condemned)

These were so good! I don't need alcohol either, I'm no longer Suzy sunshine, and I don't enjoy parties!

There were more ways that we are alike but those things specifically stood out.

Have a great weekend!

Stopping by from Brittany Ann's blog (which coincidentally is my name too)!

I noticed that you and I have the exact same wedding date! How funny is that?

Its sort of like therapy, isn't it? Blog what you want. It's always nice to get how you're feeling out. I really enjoyed it!

I love these types of surveys... in fact they are the main reason I majored in what I did. "I have come to realize" that even if things seem small and significant, they may in fact have a huge impact on my life... like Internet surveys!

Your blog is fantastic... and so are you!
