This year has been one big learning curve and it has opened my eyes to a lot. I wanted to share the things I’ve learned and reflect on my 2018 journey.
Patience & Consistency –
Something I learned in 2018 was the art of patience. I spent a lot of this year feeling like I was falling behind or not where I was supposed to be, and the funniest thing about that is, thinking about it now, I don’t even know what I “falling behind” on. I also had to keep reminding myself to stay consistent. Consistency is key. Sometimes I lost sight of what it is I’m trying to achieve because I wasn’t seeing the results I anticipated. I just had to realise that the growth will come and things can’t be rushed. I have to put more trust in the timing of the universe and trust that if things are meant for me, then it will be,when the timing is right.
Remaining Present –
I spent a lot of this year (and my life in general lmaoo) overthinking and worrying about the uncertainties in my life. The overthinking coupled with the feeling of falling behind, caused me to lose focus on the present moment and caused me to overlook all the things I have achieved this year. Although this year was a very a challenging year for me, there has been a lot that I have overcome and achieved. But I spent so much time overthinking and putting unnecessary pressure on myself, that it took me so long to really acknowledge my growth. I’ve learned that it’s important to always remain present, instead of worrying about the future. Worrying isn’t going to change the way your future plays out, the actions you make today will. It’s important to just enjoy where you are right now, enjoy the journey you are on and give yourself the credit you deserve.
Positive Thinking –
This was probably my biggest lesson this year. Where focus goes, energy flows. 2018 was the year that I really had to pay attention to my thought patterns and shift my focus from negative to positive. It’s so easy to think negatively when in difficult situations or hold back from doing what you actually want to do based on fear. This year I’ve had to remind myself that my thoughts create my reality, so #PositiveEnergyOnly. I’ve been trying to keep a positive mindset and always acknowledge the positive in any situation, in order to keep my vibrations high and my abundance flowing.
Overall, 2018 has been a very necessary year for me lmaoo. Things didn’t go the way I had imagined but I have no regrets and I am grateful for everything that this year has taught me because I feel like I am more than ready for 2019, I am going to make 2019 my best year.
