2015 Life Lessons with Erika

And nowww, we’re down to the last few hours of 2015. I already did the “100 things I did this 2015” post. Before the clock strikes 12 and the fireworks go off, I’m going to look back and do some last minute throwback and share all the lessons I learned this year.

2015 was the year when I did a lot of growing up.  This was the year I sorta let go of some of the things I’ve loved when I was younger. And starting to accept the fact that I’m not getting younger.

2015 was the year when I started to overcome some of my fears. The little things like my fear of looking at someone when I’m talking to them and the fear of being a leader.

2015 was the year, I became more independent. Like going to a concert alone, buying shoes and clothes all by myself, and even paying my phone bill.

2015 was the year I had little rendezvous with friends. It may be only in KFC or fancy cafes or spontaneous “Uy nood tayo movie”, but it was the year I experienced a lot of those. Sure, I missed a few but there will be more to come 😉 I’m sure of it.

2015 was the year that when life throws you a curveball, you fukin face it and deal with it.  Life had a lot of twists and turns this year. One thing I learned from all the curveballs life threw at me, is that I shouldn’t run away from problems. Some problems can only be solved with time but the other problems that can’t be solved by time, you have to solve it yourself.

2015 was the year I made sure to love myself more than anything or anyone. And I guess that was the whole point of this year. To put more time and love for myself. Yes, it does seem a little vain but I swear I did not hating others in the process of loving myself. This year made me realize, self love is the most important thing you should have and people should realize that also!!!

2015 was the year I realized to tell other people what I feel. It’s actually nice to tell other people what and how I feel.

2015 was the year, I became proud of myself.  Idk. Just a lot of things happened this year (both little and big things) that made me a lot proud of myself. Like 2015 has already set a bar that I have to top off in the following year. If I could do those stuff I did this year, maybe I could do it again next year or even better 😉

2015 made me realize, it’s alright to get lost. 

2015 taught me to not care about what other people thing about you. Huwoww road to a better life hahahaha. Kidding. But really, this is an important lesson also.

2015 was the year I learned that beautiful things happen in God’s time. If you feel like things aren’t happening to you, then make it happen.

I am legit thankful for all the blessings I received, for all the people I met, for the lessons and days I thought it was the end of the world. But it really wasn’t., for all the breakdowns that made me realize how lame I am (HAHAHA), and for the shit I went through that made me overall a better person this year.

2015 was an okay year. 2015 was a less overwhelming year than the last year, but that’s okay.  It was spectacular for me and I cannot wait to feel all spectacular things again in the new year.

I’m still currently planning for 2016. But here’s one thing foshooo, I’m going to slay it!!! I’m praying and hoping I would figure things out in 2016. I’m also hoping I find what I’m ultimately looking for.  But even if I don’t because you know life does get a little jasfnajga, I just want to have fun and learn a lot.

So what’s next? 😉

In 2016, I want to explore. I want to get out more and see the world. I want to give more (just like what I did this year). I want to do random acts of kindness, not because it’s my obligation but because I want the world to realize there is still hope in humanity (huwow some kind of Miss Universe answer huh)

But before the world goes a bit crazy with starting their resolutions tomorrow, I just want to tell you guys (for the 3rd time in this blog) but it is still very relevant:

“When that ball drops at midnight, and it will drop, let’s remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other, and not just tonight but all year long.”

An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.”


And here’s a new one:

“In life, people tend to wait for good things to come to them. And by waiting, they miss out. Usually, what you wish for doesn’t fall in your lap. You have to recognize it somewhere nearby, stand up and put the time and work it takes to get it” 

Happy New Year everyone!!! I hope we all find what we are looking for in 2016. Cheers to starting another exciting year!!! Here’s to all the new possibilities and opportunities, to the positive vibes, love and happiness. To another great year, let’s slay 😉

That is aall xx
