1. My skin isn't as tough as I thought it was
I have always prided myself on not caring what people thought of me.... until an anonymous person behind a keyboard made a not even that mean comment that rubbed me the wrong way.
2. Hobby Lobby is a magical place where dreams come true
Forget Disney World, helllooo Hobby Lobby. I had never even heard of the place until I started reading other blogs and then, just in time we got one only 20 minutes from my house. And it is glorious.
3. I can make ANYTHING
Granted, Pinterest also brought about this revelation, but reading other DIY blogs and seeing the success stories of other projects from bloggers made me realize, "hey, I can make that myself." Check out my DIY tag on the side bar to see all the crap I've made!

4. I am not alone.
My favorite part of blogging is that I realized other people are going through some of the same struggles that I go through. I love seeing comments of people relating to an issue or reading posts with solutions that I have never thought of.
5. That you can have great friends that you've never "met" IRL
My soul sister, Brit at First Comes Love is a prime example of this. I love our emails and even though I've never even been within a 500 mile radius of her, I know we'd be besties IRL if I ever moved to MA or she came on down to NC. Then I was lucky enough to actually meet Marianna at Delightfully Dunn and proved this theory correct, blog friends can be real life friends.
