Another summer in the books~
If you are new to my blog, you may not know this, but I have been writing posts about lessons I’ve learned from summer for quite some time now. Usually I write about life lessons 3 times a year; my birthday, the end of summer, and new years. So to keep with the long running tradition, here is my 3rd installment of what the summer has taught me:
- If you wait to be invited, you’ll miss out on a lot- I mean this in the literal sense and the spiritual sense. If you want to do something and someone doesn’t invite you, express interest or you’ll miss out. If you want to do something and you’re waiting for the universe to tell you it is okay, stop and do it, there is no grand invitation.
- Every “no” is one step closer to your next “yes”- Sort of like if one door closes, another opens, but a little more realistic. Sometimes one door closes and the next door is locked and you need to find the key for it to open. It will eventually open but it takes trial and error.
- It is okay to say no- Don’t put your fear of letting others down, over letting yourself down. You deserve to put yourself as a priority.
- Grind in private- Don’t go around blabbing about things that “might happen” and gloating about opportunities you haven’t been fully presented with yet. Work hard towards success and let your accomplishments speak for themselves. There is nothing more embarrassing than bragging about something that ends up failing.
- Things change in the blink of an eye, give changes a chance- I am so hesitant when it comes to change, but I have found that giving everything its fair shot is totally worth it.
- Sometimes it won’t feel like the universe has your back, but it does- I am still trying to take in this lesson. I ended the summer on a really bad note, but I feel like the universe is trying to give me signs that it is still here for me. I just need to wait and see.
I have honestly learned so much more this summer but I feel like I should save some things for my year in review, but these were what I consider to be the most overarching themes I have seen this summer.
What is something you learned this summer?
