19 Things I learned // 19 Cosas Que Aprendi

martes, enero 10, 2017


A few weeks ago was my 19th birthday, and I think it was for my 17th birthday that I did a post like this, and I really enjoyed doing it, so here I am two years after. 2016 was probably the most difficult yet exciting year for me. Everything was new, and when I say everything, I mean it. Starting university, going to the city every day and learning to walk around there, which it was really different from the little town where I live. My friendships changed, I met a lot of new and amazing people. I tried lot of new stuff, accomplished a lot of my goals, and of course, there was some crying. The past year taught me some value lessons, and I feel I am so much more mature now, thanks to all these things I went through. So, here are the 19 things I learned in 19 years of life:
  1. You are afraid? Okay, do it anyway and tell yourself after doing it how amazing it felt.
  2. Stick to your values, they make who you are (and you should be proud)
  3. Your heart is going to be broken many times, and it never really goes away. But it's fine, you'll breathe again.
  4. Don't be thinking all the time about the future, because you may lose sight of the amazing present you have.
  5. You never know what the other person is going through, so please please be nice. Don't yell, don't judge.
  6. There's never too many hugs or kisses you can give to the people you love. Tell them often how you feel about them.
  7. Write, read, take photographs. Grow as a person while doing what you love. 
  8. Be thankful. 
  9. Time heals everything. Have patience, give it time. 
  10. Don't be afraid to lose people, the right ones will stay.
  11. Love yourself, respect yourself, you're worth it. Repeat it as many times as you need it.
  12. It's never late to start again, and again, and again.
  13. Appreciate the little things in life, those that make you get out of bed everyday.
  14. Wake up early, there'll be a lot of time to sleep.
  15. Stop trying to save people, you can't. The only thing you can do is love them and hold their hand.
  16. Learn to love the imperfections about you. 
  17. It's okay to escape the world for a while. Everybody else will be just fine.
  18. You're gonna fail a million times. But you will gain so much experience.
  19. Get lost, visit new places, open your mind. 

Hace unas semanas fue mi cumpleaños numero 19, y creo que la ultima vez que hice algo así en el blog fue cuando cumpli 17 años, y como disfrute mucho haciendolo, acá estoy dos años después. El 2016 fue probablemente el año mas dificil pero a la vez increible para mi. Todo fue nuevo, y cuando digo TODO, lo digo literal. Empece la universidad, pase de vivir todo el tiempo en mi barrio que es super tranquilo a la Ciudad, y aprendi a manejarme ahi, lo que no siempre es fácil. Mis amistades cambiaron, segui con mis amigos incondicionales pero también conocí nuevas e increibles personas. Trate muchas cosas nuevas, cumplí muchas de mis resoluciones, y por supuesto, hubo un poco de llanto. En año que paso me enseño muchas lecciones valiosas, y creo que gracias a ellas hoy soy mucho mas madura. Así que, acá están las 19 cosas que aprendí en estos 19 años de vida:

  1. Tenes miedo? Esta perfecto. Hacelo de cualquier manera y decite a vos mismo lo bien que se sintio despues de hacerlo.
  2. Aferrate a tus valores, te hacen ser quien sos. (Y tendrias que estar orgullosa de eso).
  3. Tu corazon se va a romper de mil maneras distintas, y la verdad es que ese dolor nunca se va del todo. Pero esta bien, vas a volver a respirar.
  4. No estes pensando todo el tiempo en tu futuro, porque podes llegar a olvidarte del increible presente que tenes. 
  5. Nunca sabes lo que la otra persona esta pasando, asi que por favor se buena. No grites, no juzgues. 
  6. Nunca hay demasiados abrazos o besos que puedas dar a las personas que queres. Deciles seguido como te sentis con ellos, cuanto los amas. 
  7. Escribi, lee, saca muchas fotos. Crece como persona haciendo lo que amas. 
  8. Se agradecida.
  9. El tiempo cura todo. Dale tiempo, tene paciencia.
  10. No tengas miedo de perder personas, las correctas se van a quedar con vos.
  11. Amate, respetate, lo vales. Repetilo todas las veces que sea necesario.
  12. Nunca es tarde para volver a empezar, una y otra y otra y otra vez.
  13. Aprecia las pequeñas cosas en la vida, esas que hacen que te levantes todas las mañanas.
  14. Despertate temprano, va a ver muchisimo tiempo para dormir.
  15. Deja de tratar de salvar a la gente, no podes. Solo podes amarlos y sostenerles las mano.
  16. Aprende a amar tus imperfecciones.
  17. Esta perfecto escapar del mundo por un rato. Todos los demas van a estar bien.
  18. Vas a fracasar un millon de veces. Y un millon mas despues de eso. Pero vas a ganar tanta experiencia y sabiduria.
  19. Perdete, visita nuevos lugares, amplia tu mente.

  5. Happy Belated Birthday! And this was a fabulous list. I particularly like "wake up early" -- the mornings are the most amazing thing when you get up early...you can get ready leisurely before work instead of running around in a rush, you can actually enjoy your coffee, you can get a workout in, and honestly, it's such a perfect time to just be present and mindful about the day ahead of you <3
