7 Realistic Things I Am Learning In My Life At The Moment

7 Things I Am Learning In Life At The Moment
  • 2019 has only been here for 10 days and I already feel like I have completed one whole year! How did that even happen? Ha! I am learning that life is going by faster than the speed of light and I better catch this train while it's still in the beginning stages. There's so much that I want to do and accomplish and I really feel like that this year will the year that it shall come to pass.
  • Changing my career was a good move for myself and the life that I want to live. I moved to a new state to live a better life and it has been AMAZING thus far but this year I want to get more out of my personal goals and life experiences.
  • Too much internet/news is draining. Not that I didn't know this before but it has been something that has been on my mind lately as I watch everything that is going on in the world. Now with the heavy use of phones, I can slowly feel like my brain is starting to melt from overload and I have decided to remove twitter from my phone in hopes that I can reduce the mental stresses that people share every day. I don't know about anyone else but twitter used to be the most engaging site there is to use but now it just feels like random news articles with a bit of celebrity gossip to share in between. I don't know about anyone else but I know for sure that I am going to invest in stress-free feeds/inboxes/text messages this year because it's not going to change unless I do something to implement it into my own personal lifestyle.
  • Shopping less/cheaper. This is a big goal for me mainly because money does not grow on trees and I want to save more than I normally would this year. I pretty much wear the same thing on the regular so I want to embrace a more collective/minimal wardrobe as opposed to having a bunch of random items that I don't really need.
  • Having my own voice and ideas. I know this one may sound simple but I have been doing ALOT of soul searching and I have come to the conclusion that I have developed a new personality that I would love to explore. I want to use the voice I have to advocate for the things that are important in my life, career and all around wellness. I just want to commit to being an overall better person this year.
  • I really want to improve my listening skills, I have learned that I DO NOT listen at all during simple conversations and the plan is to be a bit more engaged.
  • I am learning that I can't do it all by myself. As much as I like to be a one-woman show, I do realize that not only is that rhetoric exhausting but it is also unrealistic. One of the many reasons why 2018 snatched my wig so hard is because I was trying to do everything on my own when I should have used the resources around me. This time around I am going to work on using my support system to support me in ways that I cannot support myself.
