1. Starting Over
In an interview with All Things Real Housewives, Yolanda was asked if there was anything she would like to say to fans. She responded,
To all off you thank you for the heartfelt love, support and teaching me the power of social media, If I had not gotten sick I would have never been on Instagram or Twitter because I would have never had the patience to take a moment to type 120 letters on how my crazy day was going. The truth is that in my worst days I somehow became obsessed with retraining my brain to learn the alphabet and because of that I have connected with all of you, and for that I am forever grateful.
Even in her roughest times, she pushed herself to be strong, even when she had to learn how to read and write again. This should inspire everyone to be able to start over after tough times.
2. Living One Day At A Time
In her Bravo blog, Yolanda wrote,
I might only be a shell of the woman I used to be, but my heart is still the same, and even though I can only do life one day at a time, I am at peace and have surrendered to my new normal — for now.
No matter what happens in her life, she still tries to be herself and make the best out of any situation, something we should all aspire to do.
3. Being Kind To Everyone
In Yolanda's last blog entry from RHOBH's fifth season, she shared her overall take after the reunion:
We must all try to be kinder than necessary, because those hardest to love need love the most.
Instead of holding onto grudges or escalating arguments, Yolanda believes in treating everyone with kindness, especially those who may have wronged her.
4. Encouraging Kind Gestures
Instead of dwelling in despair because of her diagnosis, Yolanda encourages people to be conscious of what other people might be going through. In her Bravo blog, Yolanda wrote,
As a human being battling this everyday invisible disability, I ask you to join me in making a kind gesture to someone every day, because everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about, so your kindness goes a long way, and together we can make a real difference in someone's day.
If we all try to make a difference in the lives of other people it can go a long way and make a positive impact on our own lives.
5. Gaining Strength In Tough Times
When you take a step back and list it out, it's clear that Yolanda has been through so much. In another great Bravo blog entry, she wrote,
You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have left.
Everyone is stronger than they realize, they just might not find out how much strength they have until they are facing adversity.
6. Learning From Mistakes
When writing about her daughter Bella Hadid's DUI, Yolanda explained her positive take from the tough situation:
Life doesn’t always go according to plan, and we don’t always act in a way that represents who we are. What matters is that these moments become teaching moments.
She is not dismissing Bella's mistake by means, but she is encouraging us all to turn our mistakes into learning experiences.
7. Forgiving Yourself
In her Bravo blog, Yolanda explained the importance of forgiving yourself after regrettable decisions:
Forgiveness for one's self is the only way we can keep going through life and give ourselves the best chance at being the best people we can be.
People can only punish themselves so much for poor decisions, sometimes you they just need to move on and realize they were doing the best they can.
It may seem a little bit silly taking life advice from a famous millionaire, but when it comes down to it her words applicable to anyone at any stage of life. We can all apply a little bit of Yolanda wisdom to our own lives.
