18 Things I've Learned from 2018

 
     2018 is a one roller coaster journey for me as they say. I found my good paying job and eventually leave it. Opened a personal bank account and used those savings in my medication. Got sick and back in shape. Despite of that, I am truly grateful that I was able to surpass those obstacles, and the past year thought a lot of things that I could think of and I am sharing these things that I’ve learned from 2018.

  1. Everything is temporary. All the pain, sadness and grief that we feel make us all human. It will be gone eventually.
  2. Self care is not selfish. Invest and come up with a skin care routine. Your 40 year old self will thank you for that.
  3. Not everything is about you. What you do or say has effect to others. Be sensitive enough to other people’s feelings.
  4. Forgive and forget. It’s more of forgive and learn a lesson from it.
  5. If you are being rejected, it is the way of the universe to lead us in the place that meant for us. Trust the universe, and it’s timing
  6. You cannot please everyone. We do not need other people’s validation just for us to feel that we are worthy. We must know our worth. Don’t go too low on the things that we do not deserve.
  7. Stop the comparison game. The only thing that you compare with yourself is just yourself. Does it make sense? Always aim for the things to be the best version of yourself.
  8. In everything that we do, always put your best foot forward.
  9. Surround yourself with positive people.
  10. I know that life could be so overwhelming. Be it on work, school or even personal matters, things will get out of hand; just take a moment to breathe. Take a break. Just relax, watch your favourite TV show or K-drama or take a minute to walk with your pet. Do things that will make you feel good and once done, you’ll be motivated again.
  11. Save. Do I need to say more?
  12. Do what your heart desires. You will be more motivated in doing thing/s that you love.
  13. Step out on your comfort zone.
  14. Know your priorities. Set the huge chunk of your time to the things that are most important.
  15. Always be grateful. We all have a lot to be thankful for. Remember to say “thank you” at all times. It will make a difference.
  16. Before, I am a firm believer of “thinking about my future”. This is right actually. We always think about the future and all of the things that we do is because of it. But now, I’ve learned not to think about the things that are not yet happening and to live in the present moment. Don’t let the future control us, sometimes we need to go the flow of now and this ‘now’ will lead us to the future that we want to be.
  17. Have patience. All great achievements requires time.
  18. Keep it real. This time, social media is dominating to the lives of some right? What we post on Instagram for example is the best version of ourselves or the things that we want other people to see. The thing is we don’t need to change or trying to imitate other people just to hit likes to our post. Authenticity is always important. Just be real and be good on the inside and it will shine through on the outside.

This might be late for a year ender post, but it’s better to be late than never right? What are the things that you’ve from the past year? Let me know on the comments below.
