Since we’re just over halfway through 2018 I thought that it would be a good idea to write a blog post on what 2018 has taught me so far, 2018 has taught me a heck of lot over the span of 6 months. Life is a constant learning curve and I can guarantee that by the end of the year I’ll have grown a lot compared to the end of 2017. Want to know what 2018 has taught me so far? Then carry on reading the blog post to find out!
Getting rid of toxic people is okay. This year was the year where I had to cut a loss with some in my life. It’s not easy, but at the same time it’s okay to do that, whether they’re a family member or not. I don’t want to go into too much detail as I have a whole blog post on this here if you want to check it out.
Organisation is key. I’d like to think that I’m already a pretty organised person but this year I’ve realised just how organised I need to be, especially in terms of blogging. I constantly want to update little things about my blog to make it look better and I want to post more often, but I have to be organised in order to make this happen!
Say no more often. I’m the type of person who dislikes saying no to people, just to make them happy at the expense of my own happiness. Saying yes can be good, don’t get me wrong, but saying no is perfectly okay too.
Self care is so important. I’ve let myself down a bit in the sense that I haven’t taken the time out for self care as much as I would have liked to this year. This is something that I know is important and I need to make more time for it for myself and my own mental health. Even if it’s just something small each day, then that’s better than nothing!
Some situations are out of your control. As much as I wish that I could control some situations, I can’t and they are out of control. Sometimes it’s easier to go with the flow rather than stressing and worrying over something that you can’t do anything about. I need to learn to relax more.
Change is inevitable, as much as you dislike it. You can never get away from change in life, whatever position that you’re in. You get used to something, and then it changes, but I guess that’s life for you. Life’s unpredictable to say the least.
Following on from the previous one, appreciate the little things, life can be short. With my bullet journal that I started back in May I’ve been trying to keep up a gratitude log, you can see my June bullet journal set up here. I feel like it’s important to be thankful and appreciate of even the smallest things that have happened in your day.
