Since 2019 is almost over, I’m just taking some time to reflect on this past year. While it’s been a tough one, I’ve definitely learned so much about myself and this crazy thing we call adulting. Here are 19 things that I learned in 2019:
1: Prioritize your mental health.
2: Do your skincare every night.
3: Drink more water.
4: Hold yourself accountable.
5: Just go ahead and do it.
6: Get enough sleep.
7: Fold your laundry immediately.
8: Appreciate the little things.
9: Invest in good bras and good shoes.
10: Don’t overthink so much.
11: Cook more, order out less.
12: Having mental reset days are a necessity.
13: Just go ahead and wash your hair.
14: You can’t always please everyone.
15: Keep up with your car’s maintenance.
16: It’s ok to say no if you’re not feeling it.
17: Time is the most valuable thing.
18: Every detail is not needed on social media.
19: Don’t be afraid of change.
This year went by so fast, and for me, it was a tough one. I struggled a lot in 2019: physically, mentally, and emotionally. I am exhausted. Don’t get me wrong: I also had a lot of great experiences this year! I think that overall, the biggest lesson I’ve learned this year is to appreciate the good times and to quit obsessing over the bad. I have so much to be thankful for, and my goal for 2020 is to not let the negative overshadow that.
Here’s to kicking off the new year with good vibes!
