Where the heck did this year go? I feel like we should now be heading into summer, yet my birthday is already here! Don’t get me wrong… I absolutely love it and will be gladly embracing this wonderful opportunity to celebrate. In honour of it being my Birthday, I thought it would be fun to take some time today to reflect on all that I’ve done (and wanted to do this year), what I’ve learned and how I want to go ahead with my new age.
1. Be Selfish To Your Own Needs
This year, I have enjoyed myself, I have gone to Coachella, taken up opportunities and have more or less enjoyed my summer! However, I have spent a lot of time helping the help and the needy and have been heavily disappointed after offering my assistance. In this new age, I have learnt to be selfish to my own needs and look after number one at all times – because if you don’t, who will?
2. Listen To Your Intuition
Listening to your intuition has been a KEY factor for this year. People close to me have told me one thing, but my intuition has told me to go with how I feel and just like that I am always proven right!
Don’t underestimate your intuition, but don’t make the wrong choices when you feel something.
3. Hold yourself accountable for your actions
I have seen so many people blame others for the situations they are currently in. Of course, I understand people make mistakes, but what I will say is remind yourself why you are where you are today. Was it a decision you decided to make – hold yourself accountable and certainly don’t expect anyone to come and save you!
4. Ask for what you want, and be prepared to get it
Every year it gets closer to my birthday I also make time to analyse myself, my accomplishments for the year. Looking at what you have achieved in the last year can be hard sometimes especially if you haven’t fulfilled all your hopes and dreams. If you believe in God, then you know that everything is on his time and not your own. Be patient and know that it is coming.
5. Be Happy – Nothing Is Ever Too Late
Be happy and recognise you are exactly where you need to be in life.
