Things I Learned About My Bad Self, 2013 Edition

I was scrolling through my WordPress reader when I came across a post by Campari & Sofa that made me think. It was entitled Things I learned about my campari self this year and noted 10 things the author had learned, from philosophic to practical. I commented that I enjoyed her list and was thinking about borrowing the idea, which she encouraged. Love fellow bloggers!

So here we go… Things I learned about myself in 2013:

  1. A good massage and candlelit bubble bath can (almost) make my world right again.
  2. Things will work out for the best (even when they seem the worst).
  3. Super heroes do exist, and we can all be one — somehow, someway. (Need a reminder? Watch Batkid Save San Francisco)
  4. A breath of fresh air (literally and figuratively) can be all I need.
  5. Everything I’ve done up to this point contributes to my success. Nothing has been done in vain.
  6. I have the pleasure of working with some of the coolest, most genuine people on the planet.
  7. I still want to be Rico Tubbs and MacGyver when I grow up.

I wanted to be two people when I grew up. This was one of them. #miamivice #childofthe80s

What about you? What have you learned about yourself — personally or professionally — this year? Please share below or drop me a line on a social network. Let’s close out 2013 in style!

p.s. I love the number 7, so I wanted to stop there. Other things I’ve learned? I really, really want a dog, and I intimidate some people. (Funny due to my slight stature.)

Always learning, usually smiling,
Jaime

That interest blossomed into a career path and led me to open my own business, which has always been a dream of mine. And I’d love to work my magic for you.

    • Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I’m so glad I saw your post; this idea could become an annual occurrence. Yep, I have always been a big MacGyver fan. I love how he gets out of sticky situations and solves problems with his brain (and a paperclip). Cheers!

  1. Hello Jaime, I truly enjoyed this post. Believe or not I had never heard of either Rico Tubbs or MacGyver, and it was interesting to read about them and why they are so special to you. Love the Batkid Save San Francisco story! Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Carol,

      Thanks for the kind words! It’s amazing how our worlds are shaped by where and when we grew up as well as our other surroundings. I can’t imagine life without Miami Vice or MacGyver. Ha! Batkid melts my heart; it just goes to show you what everyday people can do when they put their minds to it. Happy Friday!
