22 Things Learnt in 2017

Hey everyone!

This year has been a year of real change and growth for me. I spent most of 2016 filled with anxiety and exhaustion but this year (2017) I’ve felt better. I feel happy, strong, loved and more than anything, grateful. 

So today I wanted to share with you 22 things I’ve learnt this year. Some are deep, life changing realizations, and others are a bit more lighthearted, but all of them are lessons I’ve been so glad to learn…


  1. Time spent alone is very important to my mental health. 
  2. Keeping myself organized leaves me feeling inspired. 
  3. My mom is my best friend. She’s always there cheering for me when I need it.
  4. Nothing helps me destress more than a relaxing bubble bath. Not even a glass of wine-who’d of thought that?
  5. Work on yourself rather than being envious of others. 
  6. Making new friends on the internet is the best thing ever.
  7. Drinking plenty of water actually helps you function.
  8. I am way more productive in the mornings. I feel energized and motivated!
  9. Waking up earlier and having a set sleep schedule does wonders. 
  10. It’s never too late to change the course of your path. Going back to school this month has me so excited and eager for my future! 
  11. When you follow your heart, you won’t even have to think twice.
  12. Take that nap, you deserve it. 
  13. I will never stop loving chocolate as much as I do now.
  14. If you’re not happy with yourself, you won’t be happy in a relationship.
  15. Friends come and go.
  16. Gratitude is the key to being happy.
  17. Setting goals for yourself keeps you motivated and challenged. 
  18. It’s okay to lean on people for support. 
  19. Be good to your skin. Future you will thank you for it. 
  20. If you don’t want to do it, don’t do it. Save yourself the worry and stress.
  21. Volunteer. Stay involved and be apart of something. Your heart will be full & content. 
  22. Fight for the things and people you love. 


Here’s to 2018!

Until next time,



Let’s Be Friends!

  1. Every year, every experience, every high, and every low changes your perspective and maybe even your focus. I think something else you have learned is that you are ever evolving and not necessarily the same today as you were yesterday. I see you embracing those changes…. and not being scared of what tomorrow may bring. I am proud of you Beena, Happy, happy, healthy 2018. Love ya xo
