2019 Gave Me Good Lessons


Hi, I can't believe that time flies so fast and it's December again. Let's not do the typical what-did-I-scratch-off-my-2019-bucket list post this year since I never achieved any every year anyway. As I reflected on my 2019, I could see how I've grown so much, mentally.....and physically too, tsk.

I learned how important time management is and how to manage mine. I've known the importance of managing one's time since forever but I just learned how recently, mostly by my strong determination which I never put an effort on before. I bought an A5 size day planner and put my to-do list with the date the task received, the expected date I should've done it and its due date on my table where I could easily see everyday. I also put a note on things I couldn't do if I haven't done what I should. This strategy of mine somehow disciplined me and made me put my priorities properly.

Along with time management, I learned how consistency is the key to success. The consistency of doing my works made the routine works no longer boring and somehow it felt like the day wouldn't be completed if I didn't do any. But don't make such disbelief look, I know I'm so far behind if I want to talk about the consistency of updating my blog, tehee.

I'm baffled that I could achieve the peace of my mind through relaxing, aka travelling aka spending money! I've travelled a lot this year, and by travelling I meant including my staycations. I felt the happiest when travelling despite having difficulties with planning the journey. I never thought of works during my vacations and my heart would always felt so full gaining new experience in travelling. 

Like I've mentioned in a few of my posts, I've been in a serious heartbreak this year and I learned that I should stop having such feeling. I've always thought that it's a waste of time for having the feeling of wanting to be more-than-friends with a guy and it's (quite) true. During our friendship, I would waste my time texting him or thinking about us rather than doing what's more important, like focus on my works. While during my heartbreak phase (well, I still am but recovering), I couldn't do anything, I even took a day off. So I should stop having this feeling ever again. It's a good thing, no?

I'm proud to say that I'm a very good friend. I love to help people and by helping, most of my friends would seek my help in lending them some money. The kind me would help and put my trust in them fully that they will pay me back as they promised. I never had any problem before but this year, I learned that I shouldn't lend my money easily, especially to the friends I'm not closed to. Let's stop being too generous, shall we? And let's hunt them down like a loan shark and get 'em money back!

2019 sure did give me good lessons. Share with me what did you learn from your 2019?

I don't know why but I kinda felt sad that the year's gonna end. I wish for a better year ahead of me, ahead all of us. Have a great new year, everyone!

With a heavy heart,
Lya.

    1. Yep, we women tend to have a fragile heart, easily put our trust to our other half. Let's strive not to, next time ;)

  4. 2019 was like a roller coaster of emotion for me right until the very end of it.
    Now all I'm hoping for is for the lights to shine on me back again.
