20 Lessons I Learned in 2014

I would like to go into this straight away, since 2014 was a year full of learning. I took on various opportunities, and while they were not easy, they were memorable and full of life lessons (mostly relevant, some are mundane). Let’s get on to the list, shall we?

  1. Take constructive criticism with a grain of salt.
  2. If you hold too many grudges, it’s going to hold you back.
  3. Love yourself. Take care of yourself, believe in yourself, and motivate yourself to be the best person that you can be.
  4. “Be grateful for where you are now and the progress you’ve made.”
  5. Don’t cram important things!
  6. Invest your time in people and opportunities that will bring out the best in you.
  7. Be more open-minded and flexible towards everything, because life is too short.
  8. Embrace routine, but don’t let it dictate your life.
  9. Sleep is important.
  10. Not everyone will like you, so why would you waste your time pleasing everyone? It’s exhausting.
  11. Crying is not the only option for dealing with stressful situations. But don’t fall into the trap of vices.
  12. Life mentors are important, so be grateful for them.
  13. Don’t be anxious. Everything will fall into place. Breathe. Everything will be fine.
  14. Kim Kardashian Hollywood will suck the life out of you.
  15. Think positively, don’t give up.
  16. Be humble and accept your mistakes.
  17. Be kind.
  18. Listen to the people who matter, and to your surroundings. Empathize.
  19. Don’t overthink things.
  20. Never stop learning and hustling, but take rest periods in between.
