Hey! I turned 34 today 🙂 If you sent a silent happy birthday my way, thank you! Since this is also my first post here on swytch, I’ll take my sweet time to introduce myself. I’m Mrs. swytch, software analyst by profession, stepmom and adoring Godmother to baby Z. I love coffee, fountain pens, and indoor plants. You’ll
hear read more of my life here but all you need to know today is that I’m on a quest to simplify my life – from tangible stuff to consumption of Netflix – and I’ll share my journey, lessons, and lifestyle here once a week. So without further adieu, here are 5 lessons I learned in 2017:
- Pause: Take time to enjoy what’s happening right now, at this very moment in your life.
- Practice Gratitude: Before calling it a day, take stock of all things or any one thing/ relationship that made your day worthwhile especially the things we take for granted.
- Forgive yourself & others quickly: This beautiful life is not worth wallowing in pity parties – you are one of a kind with your own strengths, shortcomings, and quirks, try new things, stumble, fail, learn from it and move on but most all stay humble.
- Create: Creating brings joy. It could be anything – painting, smiles, clay art, or words. Find what you are good at doing then do more of it. Let your soul wander.
That’s all on my end. If you read this far, then follow me, I pinky promise to follow you on your blogging journey and cheer you from the cold and beautiful Edmonton, Canada 🙂
