2016 has Taught Me....

2016. A year that has taught me so many valuable lessons. I guess Kylie Jenner was right, it was a year about realising things.

For the world, 2016 hasn't been the greatest year but it's been a year for us to learn and help us progress in the future.

2016 has taught me that everybody is going through something. So much has been happening in the lives of individuals this year, and that can make people bitter. I've always wondered why some people are so rude to people online and in person for no reason (so it seems) but I feel like 2016 has taught me that people become bitter because everyone is going through something. Whether it be mental health, family problems or any other reasons, people take out their heartbreak and anger on others. Because of this lesson, in 2017 I will make sure to respond back with kindness because only they know what they're truly feeling and going through.

2016 has taught me that God hears your prayers. I have really started to strengthen my faith in Christ and built my relationship with God stronger each day. In 2015 I became very distant from God and only really looked to him when I felt like I needed him but this year I pray just to say thank you and I pray for others more than I pray for myself and I truly know that he hears my prayers. I have seen more blessings come my way this year than ever before and it's not a coincidence that it's the same year I finally got closer to Christ.

2016 has taught me that you have to choose your friends wisely. Fake friends exist and sometimes it can take a long time to see that they don't have your best interests at heart. Simple as that really.

2016 has taught me that being yourself brings happiness. I won't talk about this too much as I am hoping to do an entire post on this and I briefly mentioned it in my Best Year Ever post.

2016 has taught me that you have to think better to feel better. Nobody is going to be a happy person if they keep focusing on all the negative things in life or dwelling on what could go wrong. If you want to feel good you have to think good thoughts.

2016 has taught me that you can't have real friends without being a real friend. You have to be selfless and always be there for other people. Don't let people take advantage of you and don't be a door mat but try to be that friend that someone is grateful to have. If you have their back, they'll have yours. If you're a rubbish friend then I'm pretty sure people will start to question your intentions and that is when friendships will shatter.

2016 has taught me that not everyone is going to like you and that is OK.

2016 has taught me you should say yes to opportunities. This is more so something I have realised towards the end of this year but now I can go into 2017 ready for new adventures.

2016 has taught me that self love is a lot of work but it's worth the energy. 

2016 has taught me that this was just the warm up but 2017 is the real deal.

2016 has taught me so much. It has shaped me into the person I am but 2017 is by far going to be the best year of my life. I just know it. I've had my fair share of challenges this year but I've learnt how to deal with them. So no, I'm not going into the new year, blind to the fact that I'll have challenges thrown at me but with God I am strong, I am bold and I am ready. Bring it on!

Thanks for reading,

Have a great day x
