16 Things I learnt in 2016

Image
One of my favourite YouTuber did a video post entitled '16 things I learnt in 2016'. This video inspired me to write this blog post. Here are  sixteen (16) things I learnt in 2016 that changed my year. Leave a comment below telling me some of the things you learnt in 2016.

1) Be Positive I have learnt how powerful positive thinking can be. I always thought I was a pretty positive person; however 2016 taught me that I harboured a number of negative thoughts in my mind that held me back from achieving greatness.So, everyday I try my best to project the thoughts that I want to materialise in my life. It is a work in progress but my life has improved as a result of positive thinking.


2) Change is Good I have said this countless times. I fear change. I like the certainty that comes from familiarity. However, in 2016 I changed jobs, friendships and relationships and now I understand that in order to grow and improve you have to make changes to your overall life.

3)Vision Boards are…

Blogmas Days 11-12
One way I deal with my holiday stress is to take a vacation. However, here are five other tips to help you deal with holiday stress.
Avoid Traffic/ Conduct Business EarlyOne of the most stressful things during the holiday is traffic. You can deal with traffic in one or two ways: first, you can choose not to go out or you can conduct any errands earlier in the day. Lunch time or evenings are the worst time to head on the road. So, consider the traffic situation before leaving home.

No Last Minute ShoppingDo not shop last minute. Last minute shopping is one of the most stressful thing you can do during the holidays. This is due to the fact that you are not t…

Sh*t Gets Real

Blogmas- Day 4I don't think I have ever written a post like this before. If this is not your cup of tea I am fine with you skipping this post and coming back tomorrow. If you want to see me vent; then you are at the right place. Guys, I need to vent. I need to keep it real for you all. As I type my post today, I am mad as hell. In fact I am Madea mad (you know Madea is craaaaazy).





Anyone who knows me would be shocked at the above meme. It is not often that I become extremely angry. In fact, I almost always do not use strong language. However, I am reeling and seeping with anger, frustration and annoyance because of situations at work that is out of my control. 

Do you notice how powerless you feel when things are out of your control? Especially, the things that immediately affect you.   Sometimes, these things make you feel like a pressure cooker, just boiling waiting to explore. So, what do I or what should I do?





Hold Up!!!! What??!!! Appreciate Life???!!!  Ask yourself, how does t…

Creating the Ultimate Girl Squad

Blogmas - Day 3
Squads are the new hit thing among the millennial. Being a child of the 90's I did not get the whole squad trend or maybe I could just be weird (LOL). Seriously though, I have analysed the concept and now I can see the merit in having a squad.


Now, let me break it down for you. A squad is a group of common friends that you have, that you hang out together at the same time. Now I think about it, I remember Carrie and the girls from Sex and the City. Those girls would be the ultimate 90’s girl squad.

With that in mind, girl squads can be great if you have the right type of squad. So, today I am going to lay the ground work of how to create the ultimate girl squad.

In creating my Ultimate Girl Squad I have painstakingly compiled five types of girls who would comprise the squad.


These girls are (but are limited to):


Xena Warrior Princess
At the top of the list, I have Xena Warrior Princess type of girl. This girl is a bad*ss. 

She is strong, fierce and downright brave.

Three Tricks to Staying Positive throughout the Day

Blogmas - Day 2 Have you ever noticed that when you start your day  on a positive note there is always something or someone who tries to suck your positive energy from you. I guess it is the nature of life. However, it is important to note that positive energy attracts positive energy. Therefore, as we countdown to Christmas and then the new year we have to allow good things to come into our lives. Additionally, I am learning that staying positive is an important practice that one needs to engage in on the road to happiness. 
Here are three tricks you can use to stay positive throughout the day:
Music
Did you know that music can influence your mood and attitude? With this in mind,  you can create playlists of your favourite feel good songs that you can play throughout the day. I love YouTube and I am always using my laptop so I have created a number of playlists for my different moods and I find that often it takes just popping in my headphones to put a positive spin on my mood.
