It’s the little things that count, and this semester, I learnt to be proud of, and thankful for the smallest things. They’re little on their own but if you put them together, they’re not so little after all.
Here’s 25 little victories this semester:
- Being punctual for class. God knows how hard it was to (actually show up) and be punctual for class especially when the going got tough
- Attempting to eat healthier. (YAY!)
- Keeping coffee intake to ONE cup a day – for those people who say I am a coffee addict, now you know
- Not cabbing to school at all this semester. SAVING ALL THAT MONEY
- Learning how to save a few bucks a day
- Learning NOT to be guilty for being tired and then pushing myself doubly hard to deal with my weak, inefficient self.
- Planning essay submission such that it was one essay per week, not 5 per week (12/13).
- Walking away from friendships that caused me pain (congrats to me!)
- Shopping less
- Spending more time with my family, going home before 9pm almost every night.
- Doing more readings than last semester
- Doing readings not for assignments but for interest’s sake
- Gaining enough confidence to wear a midi dress (and other things that I thought was not my ‘type’ of attire).
- Maintaining my composure in tight situations and not lambasting people who I had issues against.
- Sleeping 6 hours (or more) a day (with the exception of one day in the semester)
- Finishing a notebook planner – like reaching the end of the book and not dumping it halfway
- Very actively participating in church stuff 🙂 yay
- Learning and honing a new skill/interest in watercolour
- Selling my own creations and learning to believe in the power of art and that I can make something that make people smile (thank you friends who have played a part in this)
- Making time for people who matter. Loving harder than ever.
- Being okay with being alone and happy on my own
- Drinking enough water (almost everyday)
- Reading my Bible almost everyday
- Hanging out more with my dad before he left for missions
- Quitting things that were not worth my time. and not being guilty for it.
