Hi guys!

I had made this post for my birthday which was a couple of months ago..(in April). Since then, I was wondering where the post went only to discover it sitting in my drafts! Smh 🙄

Anyway, it’s never too late to list out life lessons. So, here are some things I have learnt in my early 20’s.

  1. It’s okay to miss the past, but do not dwell on it. 
  2. Don’t take texting too seriously. 
  3. It’s okay to outgrow people.
  4. Letting go is necessary to be happy. You don’t have to forgive or anything, but accepting and moving on is a big step.
  5. Eat what you want, but in moderation.
  6. Make friends with people who drive you and you can learn something from.
  7. Spend your money wisely.
  8. You can’t expect everybody to be good to you. Never assume anyone has your best interests at heart.
  9. Be excellent in all things. Invest in yourself. Travel, read good books and learn new things everyday.
  10. Different doesn’t mean worse, or better. It just means different.
  11. These boys don’t love you. Baby girl, focus.
  12. Keep at least $100 in your savings account for emergencies.
  13. Say ‘no’ and understand that you don’t owe anybody any explanations as long as it’s a personal decision.
  14. Your parents will expect more independence and responsibility from you as you get older. Do not whine about everything, all the time to them.
  15. Be strong. Do not let people treat you like garbage. Stand up for yourself, always.
  16. Take things one day at a time, do not stress about the future. Focus on what’s going on now.
  17. Seriously, water is your best friend. Drink it, regularly.img_4377
  18. Gratitude is the key to happiness.
  19. Take care of your feet.
  20. Keep your loved ones close.
  21. You’ll find happiness in the little things.
  22. Comparison is the thief of joy. Never compare yourself to anyone.

It’s weird. I always thought of 22 as being old and yet here I am with still so much to learn and experience.
