I stopped what I was doing.
I sat back in my chair tilting it slightly.
"That's a hard question," I replied still scratching at my brain. I was surprised that this innocuous question had me so deep in thought. "This requires a lot of self exploration."
It's not as if I live(d) the kind of life style the stands out and on it's own worthy of an unique and captivating book title. If I were an exhibitionist perhaps I would call it Letting it All Hang Out or something of a similar wit. So I thought to myself, in these short years that I have spent on this earth what is it that I have learned about myself.
Then the answer came.
The title of my book would be All the Thing I Didn't Know.
What I learned the most about myself is that I don't have all the answers to everything. As time went on, as I got a bit older and had a few more experiences I learned just how much I really didn't know, how much I had left to learn.
Apparently there is this thing or tread going around with different bloggers. They pick their "word" for the year as an alternative to the regular new years resolutions. Well I have set some resolutions but in addition to that I will also choose a word and my word is, as you might have guessed, Learn. I want to learn about myself, about others, about this wonderful world I live in. I want to learn about mothering and loving my husband and most of all I want to learn to be a better me.
