I’ve finally bid my goodbye to 2015, but it doesn’t mean I would also leave behind the things I’ve learned in 2015. I was supposed to post this entry before the new year, I however accidentally deleted the draft. Haha, my fault!. Anyhow, I know it’s never too late to share what 2015 has taught me.
Here are 15 random things I’ve learned in 2015 including words I grasped and hidden in my heart.
- Not all guys who seemed like gentlemen and nice have pure and good motives. Don’t let anyone deceive you by looks, fleeting actions, and words, because some of them practice superficial nicety.
- If he’s not a man of God then he is a distraction. Fall in love with someone who will point you to Christ in every situation.
- Surround yourself with the right company. People who will inspire you, love and respect you. Choose to let go of people who aren’t a positive influence in your life, because you are the reflection of the people you keep in your life.
- Don’t focus your eyes on yourself and emotions — it will blur your vision and lead you to self-destruction. Rather live by faith, let Jesus be the center of your life.
- Your mom you never appreciate before — is your best friend. You cannot find anyone like her, you cannot find anyone as beautiful as she is. She is your infinite support and patient. The consistent love and unfading light of your life.
- Your family is next priority after God. Never sacrifice your quality time with your family. There are always ways to increase your earnings without compromising your life and your relationship with them.
- Self-discovery is important. Though labels can be restrictive, your journey through self-discovery has opened your eyes to better understand who you are, and why you think and feel the way you do. More than being an INFJ you are a woman of God.
- Season of trials and tests is not always the best part of your journey, but it creates a beautiful story of victory. Just trust God and be faithful to where He has placed you.
- Give focus and energy to the things that really matter. Release unhealthy thoughts and habits.
- Cherish your friends and never take them for granted.
- Trust your intuition and be confident with what you can do. “You are not what others think you are. You are what God knows you are.” — Shannon L. Alder
- Face your responsibility to correct what you’ve done wrong. Owning up to your own mistake can be embarrassing and painful, but what’s important is making it right.
- Be patient even in the most aggravating situation. “Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.” ― Aristotle
- If you are full of God’s love, it will overflow to other people. That even the angriest people in the world can feel that there’s something amazing about you, and they love it.
- Step out of your comfort zone and… “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”― Martin Luther King Jr.
