50 Things I Learned in 2014

Life changes so quickly, I guess it takes the beginning every year to cause a reflection on how. Last year I was freshly broken up with, completely unsure of my potential and future, and uncomfortable with who I was in every sense of the word. This year, I am so proud of myself. I have grown spiritually, emotionally, and shrunk physically in ways I never knew possible. I feel so secure in myself and of my future. Without too much detail into how I have succeeded and failed in the past year, the inevitable is that I learned from it all.

50 things I learned in 2014:

  1. Happiness is a legitimate goal
  2. Time heals, but not in your time frame
  3. I am capable of anything
  4. I am quite intelligent
  5. I am now in my defining decade, possibilities are endless
  6. Love is not enough
  7. Going back to an ex usually ends badly, especially if it’s “private”
  8. If they cant handle you at your worst, they don’t deserve you at your best
  9. Hoes before bros is a pretty good saying to live by
  10. People can be really cruel

  1. Being “perfect” wont make him love you
  2. It’s lonely at the top
  3. He’ll probably always be one of my best friends
  4. It’s time to make sure everything I do, is done with purpose
  5. True love really does mean wanting the best for someone, even if its not you
  6. I am beautiful, not because of how I look, but who I am
  7. Offers from fancy universities are better than chocolate, and that’s saying a lot
  8. Proving them wrong feels as good as I thought it would
  9. Just because I don’t talk to them everyday, doesn’t mean we aren’t friends
  10. The best opportunities come from loose ties, not your inner circle (generally)

  1. I am worth loving
  2. Intelligent yet light hearted conversations are not overrated
  3. The worst thing you can do is settle
  4. There is more to life than fancy schools and working
  5. The more special something is, the harder it is to let it go
  6. Failure doesn’t mean the end of the world
  7. Feeling everything is a blessing
  8. Keeping yourself busy wont distract from the pain forever
  9. Friends come and go, it’s not your fault
  10. Just because you love someone, doesn’t mean they love you back

Summertime

  1. He never actually expected me to be this successful
  2. If you cant be with the one you love, being with the one you’re with? Bad.
  3. Fate and destiny can be overrated, but hard work is a classic
  4. I am so blessed to have the family I do. Good or bad, we are so close.
  5. Make sure you like yourself
  6. Journaling is always the answer
  7. You can’t fix everything and everyone
  8. Love doesn’t actually mean what the Rom-Coms would have you believe
  9. If it was true, a little part of you will always love that person, and that’s okay
  10. That guy you’ve had a crush on for years? He loves you

Winter

  1. People love in many different ways, just because it’s not the same as yours, doesn’t mean it isn’t there
  2. Never give up on something you’re truly passionate about
  3. If someone cares for you WAY more than you care for them, let them go, they’ll thank you some day (hopefully)
  4. You will be old one day, don’t leave room for regrets
  5. Life is too short to be underappreciated
  6. Having standards doesn’t make you a b***h
  7. The deepest love is hardest to express, only those in it understand
  8. Acting like a three year old sometimes? Completely underrated
  9. The idea of falling in love again can be exciting
  10.  Risks are what make life exciting, dont let them scare you
  11. BONUS: Life is beautiful, don’t ever forget that

It hasn’t been easy, and it definitely hasn’t been painless… actually, I mainly remember the pain and heartache of it all, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Though it was the most painful year, it was also the most rewarding, and I’m pretty excited to start 2015 with less of the pain and more of the rewards that come with such a year of growth.

Thanks for reading!  What did you learn from 2014? Let me know, I’d love to hear from you. 🙂

Much love,

Lucy Loves Life…and new beginnings xx
