LESSONS LEARNED

Instead of boring you all with how I want to better myself in the New Year blah blah, I figured I would tell you what I learned in 2016.  I figured this would be a fun way for me to reflect and helpful for you all heading into a new year.  I will try not to make it too lengthy because damn, did I learn a lot this year. ๐Ÿ™„

  • It is okay to spend money on things that make you happy.  That RISD class I took?  Worth it.  Those Chanel flats? Super worth it.  That beach house rental with my best friends? Didn't even question the worth.

  • Your skin will not always be perfect and that is okay.  Most people won't notice anyways.

  • Weddings are expensive.  So, so expensive.

  • Traveling is important.  It teaches you more than school ever will.

  • Life is too short not to have the coffee, jeans, or job you want.

  • Try a new hobby.  It could turn into a new source of income or a great reliever of stress.

  • Being active is important.  That does not mean you need to become obsessive with losing weight, posting gym selfies, or can't eat those cheese fries you love so much.

  • Everyone will talk behind your back (and you will talk behind theirs also). That doesn't mean you don't love each other. 

  • Trying a new workout class alone is not as scary as it seems.  You may actually end up loving that kickboxing class you put off for a month.

  • Do not be scared of the unknown.  Your journey into the unknown is one of the greatest adventures of all.

Heading into the new year, be proud of where you have been and excited for where you are going.  I hope all of you have a happy and healthy 2017.
