December 10 ā€“ Wisdom Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out? (Author: Susannah Conway)

I usually associate wisdom with people like…well, like my parents, or the Dalai Lama, or Oprah, not with myself, so this is a toughie. It’s difficult to assess this question because I made so many difficult decisions this year but I’m still not really sure if they were the right decisions. I think that leaving my restaurant job in New York (which was the impetus for this blog, actually) was a wise decision. Sure, I made less money than I needed or ever thought I could live on, but I gained the freedom to negotiate my time on my own terms. If I hadn’t made the decision to quit that job I probably wouldn’t have decided to move to LA as I would have felt committed to the job (isn’t that absurd?). And I’m glad that I came here…I think. No! I am glad. This is very good for me.

The other wisest decision was to start watching Breaking Bad. Just kidding, I’m not that pathetic [yes, yes I am].


PS: Most UNWISE decision of 2010? Eating a macaroni grilled cheese. Macaroni and cheese, between bread, grilled. For lunch. Today.

    >A… I'm not going to lie to you. That sandwich picture just almost made me vomit. I'm sitting nice and cozy in bed on a Sunday morning and I feel as though my eyes and gag reflex have just been accosted.
