What I Learnt In 2015

One of my favourite traditions at the end of the year is not making resolutions for the next one, but reflecting on everything I learnt this year. This has been the most personally challenging year so far (and hopefully ever) so I have collected a fair bit of wisdom to dish out...

  • Owning lots of things is stressful. Keep it simple metaphorically and literally
  • You don't have to like prawns just because everyone else does
  • Never be the one who stopped trying, being proud won't stop the 'what ifs'
  • Red is sooooo my colour
  • If you fail, try again. If someone else fails, support them, again. And again if need be
  • Family is EVERYTHING
  • Don't be a roadblock to someone apologising. Even if you can't accept it, let them say it
  • Comparing yourself to other people is a great way to drive yourself crazy
  • Doing the wrong thing by other people's standards doesn't mean it's not the right thing for you right now
  • Move to the city. Even if it's just for a little while
  • Every person is a human being with thoughts and feelings you know nothing about. So be kind, up front with your intentions and listen when they speak
  • If you look at someone's profile picture and think 'dayummmm', tell them. Even if you're not close, compliments are free
  • You won't get something if you don't ask for it. Except for bills
  • The ability to accept the things you can't change will allow you to sleep at night
  • Sometimes you will have to smile at people you genuinely dislike. It's called being an adult
  • Say yes to that beer
