46 Things I Have Learned In Life

IMG_6006

After reading an article some months ago written by a gentleman about to turn 30 wanting to document all of the things he had achieved in his 30 years of living. This lead me to think what about jotting down all the things I have learnt in life over my 46 years of existence. I thought this would be an enormous task and couldn’t imagine that I would be able to come up with even 20 ideas but the more I wrote the more I wanted to keep writing and soon enough I completed my list. I loved this reflective exercise and found it an inspiring opportunity to recognize what I value in life. I would strongly encourage you to put pen to paper and everytime you think of anything you have learnt in life note in down and compile your own list. Now my biggest dilemma is what will be my 47th lesson learned in life.
