17 Truths I Learned the Hard Way


I've gone through more transitions in 2016 than any year before. I made a lot of decisions where my head and heart were not in sync and made more mistakes than I'm proud to admit. Though I want to say I'd do things differently in hindsight, I've learned so many invaluable lessons about myself and the world. I'm so excited to go into 2017 feeling a little wiser and a lot more humble. Here's 17 of the infinite lessons I learned the hard way.

1. Be comfortable being uncomfortable. Progress requires change & change means doing things you've never done. It's simultaneously terrifying & exhilarating.

2. Eating more natural foods have an immediate, positive effect on mental clarity & physical wellbeing.

3. Spend only on a credit card with rewards. You can literally make money by spending money.

4. It is absolutely possible to be in love with more than one person at a time, for different reasons and different intensities.

5. The best kind of love is void of possession or attachment.

6. It is perfectly OK to run from anything that doesn't serve you without your next move perfectly planned out.

7. There is no clarity quite like that which comes from living far from where you grew up.

8. People either leave you feeling empowered or drained. Choose wisely.

9. Intelligence can't be taught. It's a byproduct of boldness and experience.

10. Everything is fleeting. Nothing lasts forever. Accepting this instead of trying to change it will save a lot of heartbreak & allow you to live completely in the moment.

11. Exercise is the ONLY thing that gives back as much as it takes (except maybe moms too!)

12. The amount of time you spend with someone has nothing to do with how strong your relationship is.

13. People don't want to be treated the way you want to be treated. They want to be treated how they want to be treated.

14. Natural highs will bring you closer to nirvana than any synthesised substance ever could.

15. Be extremely cautious of who you decide to work with. We spend so much of our time working & the people we work with influence our personal, mental & professional growth.

16. In the words of Neil Gaiman, "nothing I ever did where the only reason for doing it was the money was ever worth it."

17. Not making a decision is worse than making the wrong decision.
