Lessons learnt (in life and blogging)Monday, May 9, 2016
(1) Anxiety is a natural feeling; you should never try to banish it completely because it is there for a reason. You simply need to learn when and how to control it.
(2) Iced tea will always, always taste better in Asia.
(3) Post graduation bliss is extremely short lived, and is quickly replaced by anxiety, restlessness and the need to sign up to every job finding website ever.
(4) No matter how many times you say ‘numbers don’t matter’ in blogging - they do. It’s natural to want to succeed in something you enjoy and spend a great amount of time doing - just don’t get obsessed.
(5) You can feel at home anywhere in the world.
(6) Those who truly matter will always be there. Time may pass in between interactions, but you will always pick up right where you left off.
(7) Don't be scared to cut out people who only add negativity to your life - I promise that you won't miss them one bit.
(8) There is a huge difference between being alone and being lonely.
(9) Living abroad is one of the best things you can possibly do in life.
(10) Do whatever you love. Love to knit by day and make boys cry on Xbox by night? You go, girl. People honestly don’t care what hobbies you have (you know, as long as they’re legal, and, um, consensual) and owning it just means that you have more ways to connect with more people. Wahoo!
(11) It's unrealistic to be happy all of the time - don't see a bad mood as a failure. As cheesy as it sounds, there will always be highs and lows, you've just got to ride the waves.
