|Me on a beach called Kravoulia, on Ithaca.|
I'm not sure. Sometimes I like to look at my horoscope for a bit of fun and am often quite surprised at its accuracy. But then I wonder how. I was born five weeks premature, so technically, aren't I an Aries?
If there's one thing in life that I've learned, it's that we are unique. You are you, and I am me and ... well ... I'm tired and have lost my train of thought ...
I guess my point is, don't ever try to be someone you're not. It doesn't work. Believe me. I've tried it. Since embracing who I am, deep down, I have found a lot of happiness in this world. My only hope is that it continues to flourish.
What's one life lesson you will never forget?

That lesson - self-acceptance - has been huge for me.ReplyDelete
Everyone's telling us how to be, from our parents to the punks, but the most responsible and reckless thing you can do is be completely yourself.
Life lesson I'll never forget? That I can't fix everything and I don't have the answer for every problem.ReplyDelete
Well, it's a given that I'd LOVE that first line since it contains a mermaid reference, but then you follow it up with more thoughts that touch my heart.ReplyDelete
Love all around. :)
Life lesson I'll never forget...never play leapfrog with a unicorn. ;)
I'm old and I'm still learning. :0)ReplyDelete
An ex-pat in Kenya told me: Acceptance is key. I read a small article that said horoscopes are one sign ahead. Kinda, sorta pay attention to that stuff.ReplyDelete
I can only be myself.ReplyDelete
Biggest lesson - I am not alone.
When you feel the journey is too far, just put one foot in front of the other. Then do it again, and again.ReplyDelete
Beautifully said, Jessica. I'd say I've learned to be happy where I'm at right now. I'm striving for more, but I'm happy now, and anything extra is just gravy.ReplyDelete
With effort you can become a second rate copy or a first rate you. Same effort, different results, right? :-) RolandReplyDelete
Agree! It's so easy to get sucked into the vortex of trying to be like someone else. But how boring would it be if we were all alike?ReplyDelete
And I don't really believe horoscopes, but I enjoy reading them, too. :)
The word "Acceptance" is a word that plays a large part in my life.ReplyDelete
It's always nice when you realize who you are is pretty awesome. :)ReplyDelete
This year I went through some situations that taught me a lot, one of the best lessons that there's no point in wasting your time on jealousy.
I think one of my big life lessons is not to envy or judge other people. I used to look at other people and think they had a fabulous life, and I got a few wake-up calls and realised my own life is lovely too!ReplyDelete
Now I wouldn't swop it. Though I wouldn't mind a week on that beach. Not swimming, I prefer to float. And I'm a Saggitarian so I'd be very willing to travel!
Fun post Jessica!
