What I’ve learned (or re-learned) and will continue learning

Advertisements

2018 was rough, but I’m also a little sad to see it go. I’ve grown a lot in the last year, even if a lot of it has been painful and uncomfortable. I came into 2018 with goals and a positive mindset, but the year had wayyyy different plans for me. I didn’t achieve anything I set out to do. Instead, I accomplished new and exciting things that weren’t ever in my radar. I didn’t resolve the personal and professional problems in my life. Instead, I let them go or accepted them for what they were. I guess, that’s okay.

I’ve realised that a lot of the lessons 2018 taught me were lessons that I thought I had already learned, or that I had once learnt, but simply forgotten. I’ve come to accept that time and life has a way of changing the shape and perspectives of experiences. Sometimes, the thing you really need to learn is a thing you thought you already knew. Sometimes, you need to re-experience things to retrieve lessons you might have previously missed.

Here’s a list of what I have learned (or re-learned) from last year, all of which I will probably be re-learning and struggling with for the rest of my life.

Also, remember that you are worthy, no matter what anybody else says or thinks.
