What I’ve learned from 2014

It’s mid February already (scary I know)!  2015 is well into full swing and I’m surprised to have already learned a few key things since looking back on my year of 2014.  I am sure the learning will continue however a quick list of the most significant revelations are:

  • I won’t die if I don’t have the latest & greatest things.  And I don’t seem to be influenced so easily and are making much more informed purchases.
  • Family always comes first…no matter what!
  • The fullness of your life isn’t measured by how many parties you attend, how many friends you have or how big your bank account is.
  • Social media should be used in moderation…and cautiously.
  • Technology is great however don’t let it make you complacent…or impatient!
  • Having a career & a business is a privilege … But don’t forget number #2

Looking through this list even as I type this, I know will resonate with me for a long time to come.

What things have you learned in 2015?

‘The happy moment jar’

I was inspired by the above idea of capturing your happy moments in a jar. The idea is, each happy moment you have during the year, you write it down, save it in your jar and come New Year’s eve 2014, you read each happy moment you’ve had, remembering what a great year it’s been, appreciating the moments and hopefully inspiring you to have even bigger and better happy moments for 2015.

I loved this idea!! So much so, that I started one of my own jars.  I’ve blogged on enough about my shopping addiction and how I have amassed so many clothes over the years and I couldn’t think of anything more fitting than to take my acts of reducing and culling my wardrobe down to a more manageable size, selling my clothes and recycling them to people who need them one step further and instead of amassing and collecting even more clothes….amass and collect my happy moments.
