17 lessons I learned in 2017


2017 was an amazing year. I’m not a huge fan of comparisons so I don’t wanna say it was the best year – but it’s definitely very close. I traveled more than ever, had an amazing time in Cologne, moved to Munich for three months, developed amazing friendships, met new people and learned so much. Despite all the fun, there were still a few lessons I had to learn. I realized that you learn all the time and continue growing. In the last view days I reflected on the past year and came to the following conclusion:

1. The Law of Attraction is real

2. “I have no money” is not an excuse for not traveling

3. Learning a new language is easy but unlearning it when you don’t stick to it is easy, too

4. Life is all about collecting moments, not things

5. There is something beautiful in every day

6. Overthinking can be destroying

7. Never regret something that once made you smile

8. Do not depend your happiness on other people

10. Believe in yourself and in the power of your thoughts

11. Friends come and go but the real ones will stick with you

12. Stepping out of your comfort zone will make you grow

13. “Home” is not a place but a feeling

14. Better an “oops” than a “what if”

15. It’s okay to say “no” to things you don’t like

16. Don’t feel pressured by society to have reached certain things at your age

17. Trust that everything happens for a reason
