I can’t believe 2017 is over… Literally, where has the time gone? Looking back on this year (and the end of last year too, I was a mess) I’ve changed and learned so much that I decided I wanted to share a few things on the blog.
If you put the work in you can achieve anything.
This first one, like a lot of the other things on this list, sounds really cheesy but it is true. This year (and the end of last year) I really started putting it all into my university work and boy oh boy has it paid off. I can’t even explain how much different it gets when you really put your mind to something. I went from failing a bunch of classes to not even worrying about failing a single one and I’m so proud of myself for it.
Sometimes you just have to trust your gut.
This is by far the thing I’m most proud to have learned. Sometimes you just have to trust your instincts and do that one thing. Even if it means turning your whole life upside down. If you are in a bad situation that you can get out of, no matter how hard it is, just do it. It might seem so out of reach but I promise you something incredible may come out of it!
Time heals everything.
Again, this one is such a cliché, but it is for a reason. This year I dealt with the loss of one of the best friendships I’ve had and I’ll admit it hurt like a bitch for months and months (I still tear up now thinking about it). But it gets better over time. Your head stops being so clouded and you get to see things in a different light. Some things are just meant to happen and there’s nothing you can do about it, no matter how much it hurts. Sometimes you just have to wait it out and one day you’ll realize it doesn’t hurt as much as it once did.
All in all, this has been a great year. I’m so proud of myself for some of the things I have accomplished and I don’t feel guilty saying it anymore. Here’s to 2018 being even better! (Wow, 2018, I’m getting old!)
