20 LIFE LESSONS 2020 Taught Me

One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now. 

Paulo Coelho
  1. Be kind to everyone you meet, you never know what someone else is going through.
  2. It’s not what you have in your life or what you do with your life but who you have by your side.
  3. It’s necessary to feel to heal – every emotion on the spectrum exists for a reason and they are all valid.
  4. There are such things as bad days, and that’s more than ok – you’re human.
  5. Don’t put off confrontational conversations – they get worse in your mind over time.
  6. There’s no such thing as failure. Everything is a lesson and a chance and opportunity to grow, pivot if needed, never give up.
  7. Humans are meaning making machines. Don’t cook stories in your head, instead find out what the reality of a situation. Every coin has two sides.
  8. Cherish small accomplishments, don’t wait for the big moments.
  9. Comparison really is the thief of joy – find things you like about yourself and be grateful for what you have.
  10. Tomorrow is never promised, live for today. Don’t allow your happiness to be based on a future outcome, because that future outcome may never arrive.
  11. Fight your fears because on your death bed you don’t regret things you have done rather you regret things you didn’t do.
  12. You’re never too old for a hug from you mum and a cuddle with your teddy bear.
  13. Your health is also a reflection of your mental state – work on stay positive.
  14. You get to choose who and what you allow in your life. Choose wisely.
  15. Don’t be too serious – life is short, laugh until you cry and live for today.
  16. Learn to silence your inner critic. She has no place here, she ain’t helpful.
  17. Experiences are more important than material possessions.
  18. Love is the most beautiful feeling in the world. But you don’t have to wait for someone to show it to you, you can show it to yourself.
  19. Allow yourself to dream and set bit audacious goals – we only have one shot on this planet, make the most of it.
  20. It’s not your goal to be liked by everyone. It’s your goal to be fully expressed and find your tribe.
