1. Your bad habits

Take some time to list your bad habits down, categorizing them from what you would consider a major setback to the not so major ones. Starting with the easiest, replace those bad habits with good ones. Practice makes perfect!

2. Extremely high expectations

It's one thing to have expectations, but it's another thing to have expectations way up high upon yourself or anybody for that matter. Everyone is going at their own pace, phase and life path. Lower your expectations, and notice how beauties of life will suffice around you.

3. Trying to please everyone

People are living to fulfill their own needs and desires whether you realize it or not. If you're a people-pleaser, you should definitely leave that side behind you. Learn to say no, learn to hold back from conformity and reject being treated in certain manners just to please the other party.

4. Wolves in sheep's clothing a.k.a fake friends

Friends can be precious, that is if they truly are your friends and not just wolves hiding in sheep's clothing (no-good backstabbers). “Filter” your friends and keep the real ones, because you’ll be needing them in the long run for when times get really rough.

5. Resentment

Life definitely isn't easy, and people hurt. It hurts even more when we're hurt by the very people we trust our lives with. But as they would always say, that's life, and you’re bound to hurt because you grow through it. Get over all the resentment you have, and look on the bright side; you grow through those experiences!

6. Doubts and worries

If you’ve got goals and aspirations to achieve in your life, go for them and never let anyone tell you otherwise! Throw away that doubtful side of yours and learn to take risks; they're a major part of life! Doubts are a major setback and would often steer you away from possibly great opportunities.

7. Let the past stay in the past

You’re moving forward, and what’s behind you should stay there. Perhaps you regret not taking bigger steps when you were much younger, or that job offer you rejected lead you to working unhappily at your current place. Forget about all that and get a move on in your life without all that past baggage to make room for improvements.

8. Regret not having your special memories captured

Perhaps you've had great moments throughout 2019, but you unintentionally let that all pass without any keepsakes to remember them by. In 2020, you could do things differently by having SweetEscape capture those special moments for you. Whether it be your birthday, pre-wedding, anniversary, holiday or any other occasion, SweetEscape will gladly document your moments into memories for a lifetime.
