I can't believe 2016 is almost over! Ah, how quickly time flies. Before we entered the new year, i thought it would be a good idea to share with you guys what 2016 has taught me. Enjoy.
  1. FRIENDS AREN'T FOREVER - I believe that no matter how well you think you know a person or how close you've been throughout the years, sometimes even the closest of friends can just...grow apart. I say this from experience. Nothing in life is forever, and unfortunately that includes friendships.
  2. ALWAYS LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES - I have a tendency to overlook my past mistakes because i just don't think it'll happen again. But what i failed to understand is that although it's unlikely that the exact scenario will occur, history does repeat itself. Don't be that person that gets fooled twice. There's  this quote i always use to hear (but never took seriously) and it goes something like "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."
  3. PROCRASTINATION IS MY WORST FEAR -  Procrastination will be the death of me. I need to stop with the "later" mentality and start doing things STRAIGHT AWAY. Okay, well i'll get back to this point later...
  4. YOU CAN'T CONTROL EVERYTHING - Okay, so i might have slight control problem. I like to do everything myself and cannot let go of that control for the life of me. Trust me, i have tried but it usually just ends in a psychotic meltdown. I think my lack of submitting control steps from my fear of the unknown. I'm terrified of the unknown. I hate not knowing what's going to happen and often try to prepare myself. Of course, that's impossible.
  5. TRUST GOD - This actually goes well with everything i've just said above. The only way i can let go of my obsession to control every aspect with my life is to trust Allah (SWT) and completely submit myself to Him. God has created us all for a reason. We have been created for a purpose, and that purpose to worship Him only. The only thing keeping me sane through everything is my relationship with God. I strongly believe that the only way to live a stress-free happy life is by completely trusting God - keyword: completely.
