things I have learned in my life so far

Inspired by Stefan Sagmeister’s wonderful project “Things I have learned in my life so far” I have made my own list of things life has taught me. Having learned something doesn’t mean you are automatically able to put it into practise – but defining and writing it down can definitely be a good start!

So here we go:

  • Everything is possible. I am the creator of my life, and in charge of what happens to me. The only thing holding me back is myself.
  • Doubt is useless. Make a choice – and take responsibility for it!
  • Every time a door closes, a new one will open.
  • The purpose of my relationships is not to make me feel safe, but to make me develop.
  • Everything feels better in the morning.
  • My body and my mind are deeply connected. The way I think about things and the way I talk about things will influence how I feel.
  • Consumerism kills my creativity.
  • I need to pay more attention to my own reactions than to other people’s actions.
  • By giving, I will receive.
  • What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger. The strongest part of my body & soul is where my scars are.
  • The process is much more important than the result.
  • I am not my feelings. I am something much deeper, hidden behind layers of emotions & thoughts.
  • A crisis always contains a possibility to learn something.
  • I shouldn’t be too protective about my heart. A broken heart is also an open heart.
  • Everything is connected to everything. Whatever I do will come back to me – one way or the other.
  • The opposite of love is not hate, but apathy.
  • Face everything, avoid nothing. Courage is the key to freedom.
  • Just do it! The only way I can possibly fail is by not acting, not daring,  not fully embrasing my life.

Hopefully this list will keep growing…
