As we come up to the end of 2016, it's always good to reflect on yourself and the lessons you've learnt. It feels like it was just yesterday I was with my friends celebrating as we counted down to 2016. However I have learnt some valuable lessons this year, three pieces of advice I have hand picked for you.
Things will always work out
No matter how you feel, things will always work out eventually. They may not go exactly as you planned but they will definitely settle at some point, allowing you to either continue your chosen path or to rethink and create a new path, which may work out for the best in the end. Never undermine the power of fate, so take a breath and stress less.
Stand up for yourself more
There's always going to be a time in your life where people aren't going to be so nice to you and sometimes will somewhat petrify you, but by standing up for yourself and allowing people to hear about how you feel, can create more positives then negatives. I don't condemn violence, but a verbal point can create such a difference and allow you to have power over something that you originally thought you couldn't.
Work for what you believe in
There's a quote that I adore "She created a life she loved" and honestly this is so true. Do the things you love and fight for the things you believe in whether that be gay rights or against animal testing. The power one individual person can make, is unbelievable. You can achieve anything once you put your mind to it. So that degree you've spent all that money on or that dream job, work hard for it and you'll be amazed at the outcome.
