Hello lovelies! 💗
Recently, I have spent time reflecting on the different lessons I’ve learnt from the past few years. Life is long and you may already be familiar with some of these lessons, however, I hope that you find them encouraging and relatable to your personal growth.
- Don’t be afraid to try something new because you never know where it could lead to.
- Write things down i.e. memories, goals, and ideas.
- Read whatever you can get your hands on.
- Do not believe everything you are told or read online and find reputable secondary sources. This is especially on social media platforms and copy and pasted messages.
- Back-up your writing in multiple places.
- You are in full control of your reactions and responses.
- Walks as short as 20 minutes can have an impact on your frame of mind.
- People can change for the better or the worse.
- Express gratitude every day, this could be for the roof over your head, the people in your life, or your favourite TV show on Netflix.
- Eat your dinner at least three hours before going to bed.
- Actions speak louder than words.
- Do not make a promise when you are happy. I’ve made the mistake of believing people who made a promise in the hype of a moment but repeatedly failed to keep their word.
- Make daily to-do lists. It will increase your productivity and motivation as well as improve your memory which is beneficial for both your professional and personal life.
- If something doesn’t feel right, don’t do it.
- Never be ashamed to ask for help.
- Good credit makes life a little bit easier. For example, you will have more negotiating power when applying for credit cards and loans (lower interest rates).
- Life doesn’t always go how you planned.
- Acts of kindness are never forgotten.
- Treasure your loved ones. This could be your family, friends, partner, colleagues – those that treat you with respect and honesty.
- Every achievement is a blessing so celebrate them all.
- Take responsibility for your vices.
- Patience is key and usually pays off in the end.
- People will normally take those that are closest to them for granted.
- Say “No” to unpaid work such as non-paid internships. It’s irrelevant if you’re from a rich or poor background or if the employers are from Walt Disney, any and all kinds of work should be compensated. If you’re worth the employment, you should be worth the paycheck.
- If your best isn’t enough, then part ways.
- Never let one day go without saying “I love you” (including to yourself).
