17 Things I learnt in 2017

As 2017 comes to an end, I can reflect on this year and just how quick it flew passed me. Still, quick or not, there is always something I can take with me into the next year. Some things that I learnt.

“Smart people learn from everything and everyone. Average people from their experiences. Stupid people already have all the answers.”

Here are 17 things that I learnt in 2017.

  1. If you ask someone how they are doing, do it with the sole intention of genuinely wanting to know how they are.
  2. You don’t know everything.
  3. Be kind to animals and people older than you. Always!
  4. Nobody knows anybody completely and that’s okay.
  5. Be gentle, but be aggressive. Take a stand for what you believe in.
  6. Accept Help…
  7. When in doubt, wear black. Black will always make you feel better about yourself.
  8. Always give tips. Whether it is a couple of extra Bucks to the waiter or a piece of mind to a friend. You never know how much you could be helping someone.
  9.  A good skincare routine is not a luxury, it is a necessity.
  10. Nothing worth having comes easy and life doesn’t give handouts.
  11.  Everyone has days where they don’t want to get out of bed. And it’s good to listen to your body on those days.
  12. Your body is merely a shell. Look after it. Decorate it. Keep it healthy. It is up to you.
  13. Don’t hold grudges. Don’t allow yourself to hate anyone. Forgive them. Wish them well. Hating someone only harms your own heart and soul.
  14. I have amazing friends!I always thought I was terrible at making friends. I convince myself that everyone won’t like me before they’ve even met me. What you do need though is good people and I learnt how fortunate I am to have the girls I have in my life already. The girls who knew me when I was even more embarrassing than I am now. The girls who have been there despite me not having a great social life due to my health but still messaged me every weekend just to check in.

    I realised that my heart is full and my circle is amazing.

  15. Don’t allow the opinions of others to choose your destiny.
  16. Sorry… It’s hard to say it but it’s even harder to accept it and move the hell on.
  17. Live for yourself. Breathe for yourself. Do everything in your life for nobody but you. This is your life. This is it

 

 

Writing this was incredibly therapeutic.

Thank you to everyone who religiously read my posts and who supported me on this journey. I hope 2018 brings you joy and happiness to your heart’s content.  Happy New Year! xxx
