Good evening beautiful people, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
Following yesterdays’s blog post (If you haven’t read it be sure to check it out here Practicing Gratitude), BlogmasDay10 is about “5 things I learnt in 2019”. In the spirit of reflecting, this year compared to last year was definitely one of the best. From academic achievements, personal development, making amazing memories, overall living my best life and so much more , 2019 was a lot better than the year before. I am extremely grateful for God’s goodness in my life.
So here is what 2019 taught me.
I’ve learnt to forgive without an apology. Forgiveness is more for you than the person who hurt you. I’ve felt a sense of peace from forgiving people rather than holding onto grudges. Carrying all that resentment affects your peace, mood and overall well-being. it’s not worth it.
Experience > Material. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely appreciate material but I made so many memories this year and every time I think about them, I get overwhelmed. 2019 made me fall inlove with experiences and making memories.
It’s okay to be selfish sometimes. I’ve repeated this so much but it’s true and I constantly have to remind myself that it’s okay. We get to used to being there for others here and there and forget ourselves. Being selfish for your own well-being is a must.
I’ve learnt to be more patient. Whether it’s with my friends, family or even myself. I am still learning to be more patient, I feel that sometimes having the expectation of how someone should act or be due to their life stage can be very disappointing and requires being a little more patient. Being patient can save you from easily getting frustrated.
The importance of celebrating your achievements. A lot of the times we tend to celebrate Big achievements and disregards achievements that may seem small or unimportant. I’ve learnt to celebrate them all because you will not get those moments again.
With a few more days left of 2019, we’re all still learning and growing. I am looking forward to another great year, more lessons, more growth, more memories, more achievements and daily gratitude. I am thankful for the lessons, growth, achievement, hurt and everything else this year brought.
What did you learn in 2019?
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
