• BE A BUSY BEE:Form the habit of keeping yourself busy. Be it volunteering at organizations or events, going to events that will benefit you, hitting the gym, or school work, ANYTHING at all. I found that I wouldn't have the time to think of negativity talkless of entertaining it. POSITIVE VIBES ONLY!!! I've learned in the past while I wasn't necessarily doing anything productive with myself , I would either be in some type of drama or entertain it....really, this is me being very honest. Stay busy my friends! It works!!!

  • CATEGORIZE: There are different types of friends. Learn to categorize them . Friends for business, friends for emotional support, friends for having a good time, etc. 
  • CHANGE IS CONSTANT: Change is constant, whether it is small or even a big change. We all face challenges or something new every moment of the day! We need to accept the changes that life has in store for us – they will make things flow more evenly and we can bounce back from the major changes hopefully a bit easier. Change is a part of life and we can all learn and grow from it. .Always keep in mind that life is truly what we make of it…if we are always living in negativity then life will always seem gloomy…MAKE THAT CHANGE BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!!! Also, you can't change people that are not willing to change till they're ready.

  • COMPARISONS: Stop comparing yourself to people. Everyone has their own journey including YOU! Read my interview with Pinkprods on how to fight comparisons and enjoy your own journey HERE.

  • RELATIONSHIPS: Keep them as private as possible but not a secret. Do not let social media pressure you into doing things that you'd later on regret.

  • TIMING: I can't say this enough, trust God's timing and stay prayerful. Trust in Him and He will exceed all your expectation(s).

  • TALK LESS: Listen twice as much as you speak.

  • COMMUNICATION: Good communication is key to success in life, business, and relationships. Communicate so that you cannot be misunderstood.

  • AUTHENTICITY: Don't create false personas because of how you THINK people want you to be. Stop trying to please people that don't even matter. ALWAYS stay true to yourself. Life keeps getting better and better if you care less what people say or think of you. BE YOU!!!"You dont have to think about how you want to be seen. Being authentic works better for you". I've learned this for quite some time now though, not necessarily in 2016 but I had to throw this in there one time!

I pray 2017 will be great for you all including myself. I hope you enjoyed this post and learned a thing or two from it? STAY BLESSED AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! :)
