What 2014 Have Taught Me

December 29, 2014
Hortpark last weekend 

I'm here, on the sofa, enjoying the cold night and a cup of hot green tea. Alhamdulillah, I am so blessed. So it's finally the end of 2014 and I'm glad I'm still here, sane and healthy. I'm gonna keep the resolutions to myself because I rather do them and produce results. So I will just write a post to just summarise and reflect what I have learnt in 2014.
  1. In June, it was my 1 year anniversary of wearing the hijab, Alhamdulillah. But, I am still not the perfect muslimah and gosh, there is just so much more to learn. But I'm happy I still have it on up till today. 
  2. A bad friend is not someone who just stabs you in the back. They can come in many, many forms. It could be someone who won't stop wearing/buying the same thing as you which makes you feel like a 13-year-old because it is not something you should be mad about but you are. You feel me? My point is, if you feel someone brings out the monster in you, beware and maintain distance. 
  3. Sometimes, you just need to get out of your comfort zone and do what you never thought of doing in your entire life. You think you can't hike a mountain? GO.
  4. Whatever people portray in social media is perfect but that does not mean their life is perfect.
  5. Life and routines will tire you out. But the little things matter the most. Such as dinner after work with your fiancĂ© or gathering with your friends on a weekend. 
  6. People are going to go all sensitive with your tweets or posts on Facebook. Someone called me salty because I said a girl who can produce good selfies is not equivalent to a potential model. My advice is, keep your tweets private.
  7. If you feel that something is missing in your life, spend time volunteering for a beneficiary. Or donate some money. You can even try feeding a stray cat! Trust me, it's a mood booster!
  8. Go out and meet new people. I used to be that girl who keeps saying that I rather stick with my old friends but people come and go. Make new friends, see things in different perspectives and see how it can change how you see things.
  9. Your perception of beauty is more important than how the society thinks. Have you seen how a skinny girl thinks she is fat and ugly? That's because she thinks she is.
  10. Love yourself. Really. Just love yourself. Even though it sounds like the easiest think to do, sometimes it's the most difficult.
