The last few weeks have been a little crazy and I’ve learnt a ton of things! Some things were new, and others were things I was aware of before but had forgotten about, and it got me thinking, wouldn’t be great to keep track of those things? So that in the future I can just browse back and be reminded of them?
So here we have it, just a few of the things that have stuck with me recently – some are just plain funny, some I’ll have to keep practicing and others I’ll have to ponder on…
#1 – When you go on a hike don’t leave your food in the car – who would’ve thought it?!
#2 – If you don’t go and skip stones often, you’ll forget how to do it and it will take you forever to get back in to it again – so keep practicing the things that make you smile.
#3 – If you have several hobbies and choose one as a career path, don’t give up on the others – you’ll end up starving your career ‘hobby’ and will need your other hobbies to feed it. Thank you Austin Kleon.
#4 – Sometimes life throws different things and situations at you pushing you to take the jump, you can either panic and do nothing, or you can choose take the jump and figure out how you’re going to land standing.
#5 – Community is important, whether they’re there for you so you can vent, or to support you and hold you accountable.
#6 – Having confidence in your work and a good pricing structure are vital, not just to pay your bills, but also live a happier life.
#7 – Consider it pure joy when you face trials. It’ll teach you perseverance, push you to do your best, place your trust in God and help you grow like no other.
#8 – Don’t trust UPS to deliver on time, and have a back up plan.
#9 – Ask yourself why you want something, if you don’t know why you want it – you’ll never fully pursue it wholeheartedly, and it’ll become a burden or selfish need.
#10 – Nothing happens in the comfort zone. Except for sleep.
