PERSONAL | My Life Lessons of 2016.

2016. Only 4 numbers that symbolize every second, every emotion and every memory I feel and have felt this past year. Only 4 numbers, yet so difficult to grasp its core. Only 4 numbers, yet they cause an infinite amount of thoughts. One of the main thoughts I have when looking back is how much I’ve like realized stuff about myself, my life and my choices. I guess Kylie was right in the end after all. Last year, I wanted to substract the pure essence of I. Instead of focusing on the effects, I wanted to understand the cause of my deeds. I discovered so many layers of myself I didn’t even know I had. And I did all that to be able to know who I am, what I needed to do and how I could avoid making the same, painful mistakes I’ve made in the past. Instead of trying to understand others, I realized I didn’t even understand myself. And how can one help another if one doesn’t know how to help him or herself first? So that’s what I did: 2016 was a year of self-realization, self-reflexion and self-recognizing. Who am I? Why do I do this? How come I feel the same emotions over and over again, only in different situations? Those questions guided me to the place I am right now. The answers I was searching for were not to be found in others or in circumstances, but only in my own mind. I’ve realized that life isn’t a vicious circle like I thought before – it’s too random for that. However, in the end, everything in life can be reduced to thesis, antithesis and synthesis. Life is constantly opposing, unifying and becoming something else. And you can’t have any control over it. The only control you have is over your own choices.

The Goals I Did And Didn’t Achieve in 2016 + My New Personal Goals For 2017

It’s that time of the year again. New year, new me? Hope I didn’t make your inner hipster cringe. However, I feel like new year’s resolutions aren’t all that bad. I feel like it’s actually very healthy and important to set some goals for yourself at the beginning of the year. So I want to talk about not only my personal goals for 2017, but also about the goals I did and especially didn’t achieve in 2016. It’s important to acknowledge what you still want to achieve (what most people do), what you’ve already achieved, and, maybe most importantly, what you didn’t achieve. In my opinion, these things are inevitable. I personally feel like people change constantly. There’s only one constant in life; and that’s that nothing is constant. Looking back at your life and see how much you’ve changed and have grown as a person is essential for setting new goals you want to achieve. So that’s what I’m going to do today: exactly 365 days later I’m going to give you a recap of my failures, success and dreams this last year.

PHILOSOPHY WITH LILY | Law of Attraction + My Bullying Story

I’m opening up to you. It may seem pretty obvious – being a blogger and vlogger for over 2 years – you would expect that I would have shared so much with you already. Of course, I do share a lot on the internet, but there’s a big difference between showing you my personal life or my personal thoughts. And that last thing is what I’m planning on doing today, hence I’m really opening up to you this time. In this first official episode of Philosophy with Lily – or Phililyphy – I’m talking about my view on law of attraction and sharing my bullying story as well. Using the law of attraction definitely made me a stronger, more confident and better person and I’m proud to admit that. So yeah, if you’re interested in me getting all close up and personal with you, grab some hot coco and check out my new video down below.
