Hey guys! Welcome back. There are only a few days left in 2017, so I thought I would share a few lessons I learned this year. As many of you already know, I am a big fan at looking back and seeing what has happened. I will be doing my monthly AND yearly reflection in a few days. I want to have accurate data so I don’t want to do it just yet. I hope you enjoy this!

The way you treat people isn’t always the way they will treat you. Most people don’t treat you the way they want you to treat them. You could be the nicest person to someone, but that doesn’t mean they will return the favor.

Sometimes closure comes from walking away. You won’t always get answers or closure. Sometimes you just have to walk away and move on.

You can’t control everything. Sometimes things happen in life that are just beyond your control. You can’t always control what happens to you, no matter how much you wish you could. Life is going to happen and you just have to live with it.

Trust your gut. It’s always right, even when you wish it wasn’t.

There is nothing wrong with you. Everyone is living a different life. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses, and rightfully so. Never let anyone make you feel bad for being you. Live your life.

You can’t change someone who sees nothing wrong with what they are doing. People do terrible things sometimes. But in the end it’s not your fault. Some people will hurt you. And no matter how much you try to change that person, maybe they were just not meant to accommodate to your life. Maybe they just don’t belong in it.

You shouldn’t have to fight for anyone’s attention. Significant other, friend, family member, it doesn’t matter. Anyone worth having in your life will be there. You shouldn’t have to beg for anyone’s attention.

Life is not a race. It doesn’t matter how long it takes you. It doesn’t matter what order you do things. It doesn’t matter how someone else did something. It doesn’t matter what someone else did. All that matters is that you are content with your own life. You deserve that and so much more.

The world will try to change you, don’t let it. It’s up to you who you are. Don’t let anyone tell you you should be someone else or you should try something else. Be you and do it unapologetically. That’s all the world needs.

Sometimes people don’t deserve you. It doesn’t matter who they are or what their relationship is to you. Sometimes they simply don’t deserve you. You have to move on. They will never see or understand what they are doing or not doing until you show them. Sometimes it’s about taking matters into your own hands. Don’t settle for something that isn’t worth your time or attention.

Thank you so much for reading! I look forward to seeing what lessons 2018 has to teach me. I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
