What 2015 has taught me

I think 2015 will always be a year I remember as a great one.

It's weird because on a day to day basis, I easily become fed up of my job, but looking at the year as a whole, it's been pretty awesome.

It's also taught me a few things too. Things which are probably worth noting..

1. True friends will always be there for you, even if you don't speak for ages or live miles apart so you can't see each other in months. Now that I've left Uni, perhaps the hardest thing now is not living with some of my best friends, who happen to live miles away (some even across the sea!). But you know what, when we do speak, it's like we've never left each other and that is a good sign of a great friendship.

2. Hard work pays off. I have a first class psychology degree which I could not be prouder of and it continually reminds me that lack of sleep, long hours, effort and hard work are always worth it in the end.

3. Fat is not the enemy. Fat is actually pretty goddamn good for you, who'd have thought?! Meridian nut butters are definitely now my favourite thing ever.

4. The world can be a pretty terrible place at times, but it doesn't mean we should stop living. We could spend out entire lives locked away in our homes, in order to feel safe, but what kind of life is that?

5. It's important to be kind to others, especially when you feel like sh*t. Being a good person is probably the best way to feel good about yourself.

6. You should always trust your instinct and do what you want, not what others think you should do. At the end of the day, it's your life and no one else's. You'll only resent those who told you to do differently.

7. Not driving for 4 years isn't the best idea in the world, especially when you decide to just reteach yourself without having refresher lessons. It's actually pretty terrifying!

8. I'm definitely influenced by blogger trends and I'm OK with that. All hail everything rose gold, pretty stationary and motivational prints!

9. You don't have to do what everyone else is doing. We all have different paths to follow in life, you should follow your own and not compare with everyone else.

10. Always be grateful for what you have. If there's one thing I've learnt this year, is that behind so many closed doors, there is always something worse happening in someone else's life. Look for the beauty in everything, take a moment to appreciate what you have, because tomorrow it may not be here. Life is precious and should be lived to the fullest.

And on a final note, I won't be posting again before Christmas, so thank you to each and every single one of you who reads my blog. It means the world to me and I wish you all a very, merry Christmas!

I think it's really great to reflect on what this year has taught rather than making resolutions for next year :) have a lovely Christmas

Very inspirational! I can completely relate to number 1... having many friends that live overseases. Every time we do eventually catch up, it's like no time has passed between us. I especially liked number 10. So very true. Have a very Happy New Year!
