Eleven Things I Learned in 2017

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year EVERYONE!  I pray you all had a blessed and enjoyable time with your family and loved ones.  If you were on your own, I hope you were able to enjoy this Holiday Season with time to yourself.  I haven’t posted in a while, but I am back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On New Years Day until today, I actually reflected on things that I learned about myself last year. I usually don’t do that, but in my attempt to become an adult and find growth within myself, I thought this could possibly be beneficial for whatever is in store this brand new year.  Here are 11 things that I have learned to live by 2017 and on:

  1. Forgive yourself from past mistakes, because God has.
    • Sometimes we keep our own selves bound by not forgiving our own selves even when we ask people or God for forgiveness.
  2. Don’t stress over not having children.
    • They will come in due time.
  3. It’s okay to not have everything figured out by 30…you are still growing up.
    • Reaching 30 doesn’t mean you have all the answers.
  4. It’s okay to make mistakes; learn from them and move on.
    • Get over them, basking in them only adds stress to your life.
  5. Unplanned things happen.
    • How you react to them is what matters.
  6. Don’t be afraid to speak up for yourself.
    • Don’t allow anyone to disrespect you. Stand up for yourself and respectfully speak your mind.
  7. DO what makes you happy. 
    • Stop living your life according to how others think you should be.  If it doesn’t displease God, then you’re good!
  8. Everyone isn’t going to like you & that’s okay 🙂
    • Just continue to be the best you that you can be.
  9. Don’t feel like you always have to explain yourself. 
    • Some people just don’t want to understand you.
  10. Never hide who you truly are, if it offends someone, that is not your problem.
    • Don’t add more problems to your life.
  11. Be Patient
    • Everything happens for a reason, no matter how slow the process may seem.
