For some reason I had an urge to write a final blog post for the year 2011. Ironic because I wasn’t much of a blogger in 2011. As someone likes pointing out, the term underfeeder has described me perfectly this year.
As far as my writing is concerned the second part of 2011 was hard. I simply couldn’t write. Not just on the blog but anywhere else. There’s nothing in my drafts, my laptop or scribbled in notebooks.
But I don’t want to write about not being able to write today. I usually do my resolutions and recap of my year on my birthday, but 2011 was a year of lessons so I thought I’d share those here.
- Friendship is a two way street. You give some you get some
- You can’t be there for everyone.
- Not everyone will understand No. 2
- And people won’t be there for you sometimes. Don’t judge them too harshly
- Dreams require work to be actualized. Hard work.
- There is no end to growing up. Just when you think you’re finally there, you find that you still have more to go
- There is no end to making mistakes. And doing things you thought you’d never do.
- Relationships take work. And patience. And pride swallowing. And ego-beating.
- You can make good friendships from the internet. But I already knew this from the last batch of friends I made back in 2004.
- If you don’t take your talent and your work seriously, then don’t expect others to.
- Opportunities rarely come back a second time. Grab them the first time
- Manchester United can make me cry. I don’t know what that makes me
- Love can eff you up. It will also jack your thug and you’ll start awwwing at cute kittens. SMH
- You can’t tell your boss what you think of them and expect no repercussions. No matter how right you are
- I am still stunted by my fears
- Everything has a lesson in it. Be open minded enough to learn
- I really don’t know anything about this life
- Surround yourself with people who inspire you to be better. Strive to be that to others too
- God knows best. All the time.
Ok. That’s all for now. I’ll do a proper post in April Inshallah.
Be true to yourselves. Stay blessed.
