13 Things 2012 taught me

  1. Sometimes you need to run away to find yourself.
  2. The more you desperately chase after something the more it evades you. When you decide you can live without it, the best of it comes to you.
  3. Happiness is in the smallest of things, like playing board games and laughing all night with friends and family.
  4. Not all the lessons of the past can be applied to your present. 
  5. You have to unlearn a lot of the old to make space for the new experiences life wants to bring. 
  6. Listen to your intuition. It's there for a reason. It will protect you and guide you. 
  7. Don't keep looking so far ahead that you keep missing what's under your nose the entire time. 
  8. Get to know yourself. Prod and poke your mind, your feelings and your reactions. One of  the most difficult  things to do, but also the most rewarding.
  9. Resist the temptation to escape situations, places and people. You're not escaping them, you're trying to escape yourself. 
  10. Find at least ONE thing to do that makes you feel alive. Then try to find people like that, and then a place.
  11. The best people help you love your life and add value to every single area of your life. 
  12. One of the hardest things you'll ever do is to try and change yourself. Realize this and stop trying to change others.
  13. Don't be afraid of challenging yourself. You, your mind and your body can handle anything as long as your will can.
