Eight Lessons From 2017

Eight Simple Lessons from 2017

2017 was a pretty rough year for me. Yet during all my struggles and my pains I learnt so much. I am stronger and wiser for it now. These eight lessons from 2017 may seem basic but when you are so caught up in things that at the time seem so important and are all-consuming, you fail to see the full picture.

Looking back now, I am glad I went through everything that I did last year because the changes (for the better) I am making now are a direct result of my mistakes and my poor judgement in the past.

Alright, here are my eight lessons from 2017:

Lessons learnt by sharing positive messagesLesson 1.

Be sure that in all relationships, there is more smiling than there is frowning.

Lesson 2.

Your instincts are your best friend. Listen to them.

Lesson 3.

When the metal plate on the iron box burns you, you learn not to touch it again.

Lesson 4.

Remember to breathe. Every challenging moment will come to pass.

Lesson 5.

Every day is new adventure. Make the best of it.

Lesson 6.

Sometimes when you take a step back, you get a much clearer view.

Lesson 7.

Don’t stay down too long when you fall, learn to bounce back quicker.

Lesson 8.

Keep a circle of close friends (and family) and hear them out. They will be your strength and your brains when your heart and mind refuse to see eye to eye.

What are your eight lessons from 2017? Or from life in general? And how have they helped to shape who you are now?

THE END.

I am a storyteller, a writer. I post new articles every other Tuesday. Life is full of wonder. Life is beautiful. I love the uncertainty that comes with it. The ups and downs of living -its high points and low moments, the good times and the bad. I love it all. But what I love even more, is writing about it! I enjoy mentoring girls and young women. Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing women rocking in whatever they pursue. My writing however, is in most cases unisex. There is a little something for everyone on all matters lifestyle. My most passionate topic areas include fulfilling my life goals (fighting procrastination), my relationship with money,  and self love (because no one else will know how you expect to be treated if you don't treat yourself right). And then there's travel, food, fashion and books. I have a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree (BBA). I also possess extensive experience  and education in communication studies. Welcome to my world. Comment, share and have some fun while you're at it. Are you looking for a creative writer? Or would you like to collaborate? Drop me an email at: memoirsofakenyan@hotmail.com
