I had been writing on DoA somewhere about how saving for, and then buying my first doll was a big accomplishment for me. It taught me a little bit about money management, as well as sticking with something so you can accomplish something you set out to do. I never thought I'd keep my sanity by saving for a BJD, but I did. When my doll arrived at my home, I felt this surge of pride in myself that I had seen this thing through. I even had enough confidence in myself to do it a second time, and I'm working on getting a third BJD. As I was writing about my saving experience, it made me wonder if others learned lessons along the way that transfer to other parts of life. Through the BJD hobby, is there any lesson you ended up learning that you've found useful in other aspects of your life?
