Three years since I started this blog as an English Languageundergraduate and I am a postgraduate working towards my masters in Journalism. Let me tell you this, it has not been an easy journey. The lessons I have learnt since starting in September, I wish I had learnt during my first year – I probably knew but i just refused to listen.
I have used this blog for many years and I always reach a point where I just give up! Not because I have deep insight or anything but I just stop. I have held myself back for so long and I cannot continue to go on like it’s not something I love doing. I am surrounded by so many people doing what they love and it has just inspired me to give blogging another try but these are just the lessons I have learnt over the past few months on starting again.
- Your attitudes determine how you perform in life. This is something I already knew, surprise surprise. Me personally, I have seen a few instances where I have held myself back and my attitude has blocked me from so many blessing. You literally have to sit yourself down sometimes and just be real with yourself. If you want something you will make it happen, the world owes you nothing.
- Don’t look down on others! Whether they are a window cleaner or they are working as a cashier, they are still human! I cannot begin to stress how important that is, of course you’re going to run into people who you just think eurgh but you really do not know where life is going to take them. Just be nice!
- Lastly, practise makes perfect. If you fail, try again. That is really it, you won’t ever know where you’re going to end up if you give up. Even if it’s your fourth time trying, just keep going.
