ADULTING [pt. 2]
2017 has officially begun, so here are some photos I've taken throughout the last few months of 2016 as I was working and exploring in Hong Kong. As you can see, I ate A LOT of good food...good thing I went on a few hikes too but seriously, wow Hong Kong!
It still surprises me whenever I look back at 2016 and see how much my life has changed. Time really does fly by in the blink of an eye–whether we would like to admit or not. I have stopped making new year resolutions for a while now, and I do not plan on adding this tradition to my life at this point. However, I do have a few things I want to reflect on 2016, as well as some things I would like to remind myself as 2017 kicks off.
you are the best judge of what to do with your life
if you hesitate, don't do it
when things go wrong, step back and ask yourself, 'is this the end of the world?'
don't take what everyone says to you to the heart
exercise, don't be (fat) lazy
feel stuck? go for a walk, get a tea/coffee, make sketches, talk to friends and family, shoot some photos, read a book–just pause your crazy mind for a bit
stop. stressing. out. about. things. you. cannot. control!
under all situations, breathe
people look up to other people, and they look up to other people,...so stop comparing
"would you be satisfied with what you are going to do/did today?" make sure it is a yes
take care of yourself and stay healthy
people with power often belittle others; stick to your own beliefs and strive for your own goals
some people just aren't worth your time, and that is okay– just let them go
life is about having fun too, you know
everybody has his/her own struggles, so be nice
if your heart and mind say no, get out of there fast
company benefits are nothing compared to the actual work environment and people
not everyone is obligated to like you, and vice-versa
just do what you are doing, and you will be fine (you do you boo)
