Things I've Learnt In The Past Year

For the past year my life has felt like a compass trying to find north and it finally did. From where I am north is west towards London. I think I'm ready to try and think of everything I've learnt in the past year so that in the future I could come back to this and remind myself a thing or two. I have a habit of not proof reading my posts so there might be repetition, I wouldn't know.
  1. If you have the slightest feeling something doesn't feel right then speak up and say you don’t want it.
  2. never regret a decision you’ve made that you know will keep you happier, no matter what more “influential people” around you think.
  3. Don’t ever feel like you have to always justify your decisions. Some decisions are meant to be kept between you and yourself.
  4. When you feel something is right stand up for yourself and fight for it as much as you can. So you dont regret it one day.
  5. Try to live your life in a way that in the future you don't use “what if?”
  6. Never be the ladder people use to get to the top.
  7. Its ok to be selfish when it comes to your future and happiness
  8. Don’t take things for granted, appreciate all the little things around you.
  9. Projects, like plans and to-do-lists, help keeps my life and mind more organised.
  10. No matter how hard it feels while waiting, there is something better coming your way.
  11. Keep your expectations low, you wont be as disappointed.
  12. Don’t underestimate yourself, in the long run it ruins your self-esteem.
  13. It’s ok to question your parents, they don’t always know best. 
  14. You’d reach a point where you won’t appreciate your birthday because you have too much going on in your life. Don’t let that happen a lot, you need to appreciate your existence more than your problems.
  15. Read as much as you can, you’ll go to more place, experience more things and learn more. 
  16. Learn to live in peace with yourself, in the very little times this happened during the year it felt really good.
  17. Look at things you've been used to like it’s something new for it to not lose its beauty.
  18. Coffee is an art, its a ritual, a source of inspiration don't give up on it.
  19. Come up with rituals but not routines. 
  20. Surround yourself with productive people and those that poke your mind.
  21. There are 2 types of people: those who make fun of your obsessions and those that embrace it.
  22. Travel with people you can actually live with and not only tolerate. 
  23. Speak up before its too late.
  24. You don’t always have to stick to the plan as long as your goal is clear.
  25. You’re meant to change not stay the same.
