In 2015 I had a lot of roadblocks, heartaches and challenges. But I can’t even be sad anymore about those because life has been very fair and balanced to me. I have been blessed with so many experiences in return. I woke up this morning and the sun is shining and I am alive, healthy and the people I care about most are too, and I am home. Here is a message to those closest to me and some of my most important lessons(because I didn’t send out Happy New Year texts this year I find them to be impersonal and I try really hard to tell the people I love what they mean year round.)
I learned that living with less is more. I have lived without my life’s possessions for 2 years now, and I have only accumulated more shit. I learned that family will always be family no matter how fucked up they are. It’s not something you should change and if problems is all that you have you should atleast try to solve them. Walking away cannot be an option. Always love even if it’s exhausting. I also learned that prayer and faith goes a long way- no matter what you believe. On the flip side I have also learned that people love and show love differently and sometimes hurt affects one person differently than it may affect you. I hope and pray time heals all wounds.
I learned that maybe I am not as ready for children than what I thought. They are hard work man! I learned that you can fall a million times, and get back up 5 million. It’s okay to feel defeated sometimes and come back that much stronger. I learned that success and money don’t always match up right away and patience is key (that’s where that less is more virtue pays off). Never Give up.
I re-learned many lessons as well, such as trusting your first instinct about people. I have a very good judge of character and when making new friends sometimes you want to quiet that part of yourself and give people a chance. Don’t. Actually heed my warning and run the other way if you cross paths with someone who makes that inner ‘that don’t feel right’ intuition alarm go off. When you meet good people, you will just know and feel right about it from the beginning.
I’ve learned that it’s better to say how you feel than stay quiet, when it comes to crushes, friends, family, work the whole sha-bang. You will always regret what you don’t do (if it’s legal and reasonable).
I learned that working out is good not just for your body, but for your mind too- but you must have a reasonable diet to achieve and see visible results.
All in all lessons are meant to make you grow, and I am so excited for the journey of the new year to come. xx
