Every year I publish an article about what I learned and the time is here for me to share 7 of the most important things I learned in 2017.
I didn’t want to wait until the end of the month to publish this post because, with two weeks left in this month, I don’t think I’ll learn anything new; let’s get to it.
Important Things I Learned this Year
This year was a year like no other, and as I write this post, I feel many emotions bubbling up inside my body.
- to stop labeling myself as a specific dieter
- not try different diets after getting sick
- to stop making spontaneous purchases for business purposes (usually, have buyer’s remorse).
- to walk alone, walking alone became more evident after the presidential election
- that being consistent pays big dividends
- more about people this year because I paid attention to actions and less to words
- to have patience.
Here’s what I will do going forward
- No more labels – I don’t fit in a box, so why even try. I’m more than what the names say I am.
- No more restrictive diets – I don’t handle dietary restrictions well, and I don’t recommend it.
- No more wasting money on products and services – When I make a quick purchase, I am always let down.
- No more wondering why people do what they do – I ‘m tired of going along to get along. Open communication is crucial in relationships.
- No more inconsistency – I see how being consistent in life makes a difference; I have to stick with the program.
- No more taking people at their words – I watched actions this year more than, and I learned everything I needed to know.
- No more impatience – My daughter blossomed and persevered to do things I never thought were possible. The patience muscle made lots of gains this year, for sure.
These are the most important things I learned in 2017.
