5 Of The Most Powerful Lessons I Learned In 2018

At the end of a new year, we tend to reflect on the lessons we were taught within our 365 days of pages and chapters that we are in which made me think about the 5 powerful lessons I’ve learned in 2018 and boy did I learn a lot about life and lessons.

1. It’s okay to let things go especially if those things don’t fit in your life

this year I’ve learned that although you love and adore something or someone if that something that’s not fitting your life let it go because sometimes letting go of someone or something that doesn’t fit in could lead to bigger and better things to come in your life.

This year I ended my 5-year relationship with my ex-boyfriend who I was planning to marry in the next few years but I realize that we lived two different lives although I admire my ex-boyfriend and the person he is we didn’t have the same goals in life but it wined up being better for us both.

2. Rejection is a teachable movement everything in the past year I sent a couple of my writings to a couple publishing companies and I got a couple letters of rejection although I was down and out about it at first I took as something I could learn from and take it as feedback

3. Doing what you love could heal any pain and heartache you have going on in life at the time

2018 was a very strange year for me although things, when it came to writing, was awesome things in my personal life was changing and at first, I didn’t like the idea of them changing such as breaking with up with the person I wanted to someday marry to trying to find myself personally while understanding my newest health diagnosis through all that pain and all that heartache I lean to the one I love the most writing and going on different podcast and speaking about my disability and even speaking about my adjustment disorder cannot seem to heal my pain more than any pill would.

4. Advocating for the things you want to love to matter your voice matters in the past year I’ve done a lot of advocacy work regarding my cerebral palsy and speaking out against the things that matter in society for those who can’t strangely enough on my toughest days where I thought it was just too much I would receive an email from an adult with Cerebral palsy saying how much I help them and it would motivate me to keep going no matter what others thought of me and I’m happy I was able to learn that lesson that everything I do matters to someone that I’m able to impact someone’s life .

2018 has been a crazy year for me but I’m so happy that I was able to learn many life lessons I can’t wait to see what 2019 teaches me
