5 Things I have learned in 2017!

Updated: Sep 13, 2021

Hello all…

So, as we are very quickly approaching the end of the year, I have been reflecting on what I have learnt throughout this year. What a year it has been! This year has definitely been a year of learning for me and I am sure it has been the same for many. So, I thought I would share 5 things that I have learnt this year which may help you also reflect on what you have learnt, or which may help you start off 2018!!!

1. All things work together for good…

This year I learnt that even though the year may not have gone as I would have hoped, all things work together for good. Instead of me giving up I am constantly learning to hand everything over to God trusting that His plan is the best plan for me. You may have a few things that did not work out for you this year or that did not go as planned, but just know that all things will work out for your good, and remember, even the bad contributes to the journey.

2. Life is too short to not live on purpose…

Previously this year I wrote a blog post on ‘making a difference with your purpose’. If you haven’t already read it, be sure to read it once you finish reading this blog post ( Purpose: Make a Difference! ). I learnt this year that many of us just exist. I also learnt that it is important for us to live on purpose as we are all here on earth for a purpose. It isn’t too late! If you are not already, You can start today by making a decision to start living on purpose. And if you are, continue walking in your purpose and make a difference.

3. You have to overcome fear and step out into your passions and dreams. As the saying goes, ‘time waits for no man’

The journey of 1,000 miles begins with one step. This can be linked to the previous point. I learnt that if we want to achieve anything in life, the first step we must take is to overcome Fear. If you decided that you now want to live on purpose, guess what, Fear is going to try and stop you. But you don’t have to allow fear to hold you back. Take that first step of Faith and the rest will be history.

4. We all need people

Hmmmn… this a big lesson I learnt this year, along with the importance of Forgiveness. Sometimes, I like to do my own thing and just be anti-social but despite that, I had to learn that people and positive relationships are an important part of life. Now, this does not mean we have to allow negative people to keep affecting our life, but we need to embrace positivity and block out the negative. This also does not mean that we should use people, infact it means we should love people, forgive and be willing to give, whether they are in your life only for a season or long-term.

5. It is important to live a life aiming to Do better each day and to not give up during the journey…

By the title of my blog, I’m sure you have now understood the purpose of this blog ‘DoBetterEveryday’ (A blog created to encourage & inspire others to do better in all areas of life: Spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally, financially and in our relationships). At the beginning of the year I began this journey and then made the decision to take as many people along with me on this journey. I learnt this year that everyday we have to aim to Do Better. I’m sure none of us like stagnacy and want to improve as we grow older. Things may get tough on this journey but we must have the courage to keep going and not give up, even when we fall..!

Final word of encouragement

So, these are a few things that I have learnt during 2017. What have you learnt this year? If you haven’t already, take some time out to reflect on your year. Don’t look at the bad, but look at the good things (we all have something to be grateful for – well, you’re alive right, or you wouldn’t be reading this post). Focus on the good and start to use what you have learnt to prepare you for the New year. Start writing down your goals from now and don’t wait until the New Year. As they say, ‘failing to prepare is preparing to fail’!

And, whilst you are here, I want to thank all of you that have read my blog posts so far, even if its just this one 😊 I appreciate you all!

I want to wish you all a Prosperous New Year, with lots of blessings, joy and good tidings In Jesus Name!

With Love

Maz ❤💋
