A few months ago Mom told me I needed to be more independent. It really hurt my feelings and I was sharing that with a girlfriend...and she said she agreed with my mom. Yeah...it was a great day.
Since then though, I've been able to see times where they are right. Sometimes I too quickly ask for help. I'm not trying to be all feminist, "I can do EVERYTHING!" at all, but at the same time I don't need to constantly ask someone else how to do something. Sometimes, I really can figure it out on my own.
I put my kitchen faucet back together. It has been in pieces on my kitchen counter for two weeks.
I figured out a pretty intricate (to me) aspect of Excel that will help me immensely in doing my budget each month.
These are just today!
And the feeling of accomplishment is pretty fantastic!
