18 things i learned in 2018
1. God's Plan Is So Much Greater
Im a planner but over the years I've learned that God's plan for me is greater than any plan I could ever come up with.
2. Stress Less
Most of the time I am a ball of stress, I think of every little detail, I plan for all the things that could go wrong. I think I get it from my grandma, but I've learned to just let things go and give it to God.
3. Have a little fun!
For some reason Ive always been a pretty serious person. I am extremely goal oriented and take school very seriously. But I've found that it's okay to not be productive sometimes and to catch a movie and dinner with your friends. Its important to embrace what life has to offer and have a little fun!
4. Travel Often
This year I randomly booked a flight to Colorado. It might have been the best decision I have ever made. Traveling teaches you so much and you learn that it's fun to be a little spontaneous. Getting outside your box and seeing the world is always a great idea, and you will learn so much while creating the best memories.
5. Thank Your Parents
My parents are my best friends. They have done soooo much for me over the years and raised me into the women I am today and I can't thank them enough for that. I know a lot of kids my age that stray away from their parents but guys... your parents have done so much for you and they love you more than anything. Thank them for that.
6. Getting A Dog is ALWAYS A Good Idea
This summer I got a dog, his name is Maverick and we are best buds. He listens to me when no one else wants to and Dogs will love you more than you will ever know. I am bias because I am an animal lover but basically get a dog. Its always a great idea. Until they chew up the wires to the garage.
7. Family Will Always Be There
My family is and forever will be everything to me. Friends come and go but family is forever.
8. Broken Hearts Don't Last Forever
I think this speaks for itself. Pray often.
9. Thank God for what you got
God gives so many blessings throughout our lives and instead of praying for Him to do things all the time I've learned to Thank Him for all the things he has blessed me with and will bless me with in the future.
10. Hug your Grandma
I love my grandma more than probably anyone on Earth so just hug your grandma because grandma's are some of the most loving people on Earth I swear.
11. More Coffee
Coffee is how I start my day, catch up in my day, and get through my day.
Thanks grandma for that sip of coffee when I was 8.
12. Meet new people
I'm not the best a meeting new people or going out of my comfort box to do so. But this year I joined a group of incredible Christian kids and I met this incredible gal named Taylor and she has a heart of Gold for the Lord. I encourage you to go outside your box and meet new people this coming year.
13. Success doesn't mean happiness
I have a lot of big goals. I wanna be the VP of HR, write a book, etc. But if there is anything my dad has taught me it's that your happiness doesn't come from how successful you are. It comes from the Lord.
14. Be Kind
The world needs more of this.
15. Go with the Flow
I plan way to much and I've learned that sometimes you gotta just go with flow and sit back and watch. It make life wayyyy less stressful. Just enjoy life to the fullest way possible.
16. Find something that relaxes you
This year I took on carving wood, and it's the one thing that fully relaxes me. I encourage you to find what that one thing is for yourself. You won't regret it.
17. Take on Less
All through college I took 21 credit hours, blogged, did instagram collabs, etc. I think it's important to take on less sometimes and just be in the moment.
18. Embrace your singleness
God has incredible things in store for you during this period and one day you will look and there will be someone running just as fast as you toward God and want the same things as you in life and that's when you know that there is someone that God might have in store for you.
