3 Things I’ve Learned In 2019

1) Throughout your shift at work, don’t feel guilty to take a break.

This was a reoccurring thought for me this year. I don’t mean your usual lunch break, I am talking about a few minutes away from your desk when things get a bit much for you. No one should be expected to not have a few breathers here and there. It’s important to do so.

2) Forgive more.

I have been practising forgiveness a bit more this year. I tend to get very wrapped up in things that bother me, so much so that I will refuse to let go of what is bothering me for days and days. I have been practising forgiveness a bit more, and putting my ego to the side a bit more. It’s been quite a challenge, and I still struggle with it. It’s going to be an ongoing practice for me, but I have really learned how important it is to forgive. There is no point losing a connection with someone over something trivial.

3) Saying yes more often.

I tend to turn things down, and say no to many opportunities. I have learned to open my mind and my heart to saying yes. For example, I bought tickets for my husband and I to see Dylan Moran (comedian) mid work week when it would be finishing late into the night – just for the sake of the opportunity. I would never usually jump at those once in a lifetime opportunities (who knows when he will come back to Australia!) – and I hate going into the city, especially so late at night. I also am pregnant currently, I was struggling to stay awake and sitting still for so long. It was an amazing opportunity, I am incredibly glad I dove into it. Saying yes to life opportunities and being open minded is incredibly beneficial!

  1. Good post… number one definitely caught my attention because when things get a bit much, we do need to step away for a moment to recharge before trying to tackle whatever the issue might be again.

      1. Yes that’s true. I tend to be very anxious, but I jumped at some opportunities this past year, such as buying a house with my husband that only he had seen before buying it. Well maybe that sounds weird but well.
