Things I’ve Learned in 2022

This will most likely be my last post for the year so I wanted to do a little rewind of some important lessons I’ve learned this year. Keeping reading and learn some things I’ve learned!

  • Be nice, you don’t know what people are going through
  • When your alarm goes off in the morning, just get up (if you don’t, it only gets harder)
  • Approach health and wellness as caring for your health/body (not your appearance or size)
  • Stop compaing yourself to others; compare yourself to you yesterday
  • If you get the feeling to reach out to someone, do it
  • Spend your time wisely doing things you love and things that make you better
  • Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there – who cares what others think or say
  • Practice makes perfect (whether you need 10,000 hours or less or more, it all matters)
  • Take a risk
  • Smile 🙂
  • Write things down – everything and anything
  • Appreciate and love your parents because you won’t always have them
  • Don’t expect things from others, especially strangers
  • Don’t wait, just do it
  • Money is important but it is a means to an end; it’s not everything
  • Spend money on your loved ones
  • Read, read, read! Anything and everything! Find out what you like and go!
  • Being passionate about something is important, attractive, and beneficial
  • Everything starts with you
  • Take responsibility for your actions – don’t always look for something or someone to blame
  • Work hard – it will give you that accomplished and rewarding feeling we all crave
  • Put the soul before the ego
  • Do as much as you can before you complain
  • There are people out there that are like you (your community is out there)
  • Travel!
  • Spend more money on experiences rather than things
  • At the end of the day, I am responsible for what I do and how I react
  • Really get to know and talk to people who are different than you and live differently than you

So those are the lessons I learned this past year. Some of them I had to learn the hard way, but nevertheless, I’m grateful for them. Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year! Thanks for reading!
