8 key lessons learned from 2017

As we wind-down the year, I take a moment to look back on 2017 moments and memories and draw from them the lessons learned:

  1. Sunday lunches are family time – its my most favourite time of the week. Spend as much time with family as possible – relax, connect and bond!
  2. My grandmother remained quite ill this year – she is much better now and we pray she will remain so but it reinforces the importance of keeping healthy, eating right and exercising!
  3. Travel took me to several new places this year – each brought with them new feelings, new experiences, new viewpoints and new sights – see at least one new place each year…
  4. Work has been rewarding and invigorating – keep working hard and giving your best!
  5. As I look back on the photos and videos, though they are etched on my mind and heart, the importance of capturing the special moments of our lives is highlighted – take as many photos and videos as you can!
  6. I have read quite a lot this year though not as much as I would have liked – I have tried new authors,  looked at topics I hadn’t before and articles that I wouldn’t have read previously – be open to listening to new ideas and then form your own opinion based on your values…
  7. I decluttered a lot this year – made space, gave away things, became organised and felt suddenly a weight lift off my shoulders – Less is more. Its moments that make life not things!
  8. I had read somewhere that life is about moments – don’t wait for them, create them – make those moments to laugh, live, sing and dance! Be happy – its a choice…

Here’s to a fabulous 2018 and more lessons to learn!
