I love the moments when I learn even the most trivial fact. The other day, I watched a video on different levels of making French toast, and I learned that stale bread is best bread to use to make French toast.
I don’t remember the last time I made French toast. I don’t think I’ve ever even made it, but I learned something new that might be helpful in the future.
In all seriousness, I think this love of learning helps keep me interested in all areas of life such as my job. Learning keeps me in achiever mode and prompts me to ask questions like how can I be better at this?
With all this learning, it’s not surprising to also find self growth on this list. I don’t claim to be a perfect person, but I am self aware in all of the areas I could grow in. For example, I see room for growth in my social, communication, and leaderships skills.
There’s a quote I read recently about writing that I relate to so much. Elie Wiesel says, “Why do I write? Perhaps in order not to go mad. Or, on the contrary, to touch the bottom of the madness.” Writing makes me feel real and anchored, and I think that’s one of the reasons for why I gravitate towards journal/diary writing.
#4 Old English Sheepdogs
I’m currently obsessed with these fluffy dogs. If I could, I’d buy an OES at this moment. However, I must be realistic: I can’t have one for several reasons.
I follow several OES on Instagram, and seeing their photos always brightens my day.
I know that they’re not the healthiest, and I don’t eat them everyday or every weekend, but pancakes with butter, syrup, and a cup of coffee is probably the most perfect breakfast.
