The most surprising thing I’ve learned about myself

What’s the most surprising thing you’ve learned about yourself?

Here are some answers from the November 2012 issue of the Oprah magazine. I really enjoyed some of the responses (p. 22).

Dwayna Haley from Marietta, Georgia says, “That I am not the titles I wear. To outsiders I am a wife, mother, sister, best friend, and business executive, but at one point, the responsibility that comes along with these roles took over my life. I had no idea what I was really feeling besides overwhelmed. I’ve now learned that I need to take care of myself in order to care for everyone else.”

Julia Hammonds from Flagstaff, Arizona says, “The nothing is perfect, not even me, and that’s something to celebrate. I used to think that if I followed the rules and stayed quiet, my life would run in a straight line. But it doesn’t work that way. I’ve faced detours and dirt roads, and to my surprise, those moments have brought out the best in me.”
