22 Things Life Taught Me


This post is a couple of weeks late since my birthday has already passed (8th of September if anyone wants to know haha). But I thought it would be a good idea to write about things I have learnt throughout my 22 years on this earth and share them with you.
This list of '22 things life has taught me' will not really have a theme but just go through instances in my life where I have learnt vital lessons. Also, if you're wondering why specifically 22 things, it's the age I turned this year.
Anyway, I better stop myself from rambling and get on with it!

1. Your life doesn't have to be planned out, all good things take time.

2. It's alright to ask for help when you're feeling overwhelmed or are unsure.

3. Don't compare your life to others everyone has their own individual journey.

4. You won't stay friends with people forever even if you have known them for years, just accept it and move on. Cherish the time that you had with them but don't dwell on it. It will essentially help you grow as a person and if you are still really good friends with people you met when you were little then good for you!

5. Don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone once in awhile even if it scares you.

6. Pay attention to the now and cherish your time with the people you love.

7. Go out without makeup and don't care what any thinks of you, trust me it's liberating!

8. Don't let others make you feel bad about enjoying something they might not like. You do you.

9. Be kind to others as much as possible even if you're having a crap day, who knows it might make you feel better.

10. Surround yourself with positivity and get rid of toxic people.

11. It's alright if you fail at something the first, second or third time, look at it as a learning experience.

12. Say no to things that make you uncomfortable it doesn't make you a rude person.

13. Be kind to all animals, they have unconditional love to give which we sometimes don't deserve.

14. Indulge yourself once in a while it doesn't make you selfish.

15. Be honest even if it's difficult, to tell the truth in some situations.

16. Cherish the people who go out of their way to make you feel good about yourself, because if you don't you might end up losing a great person.
17. Don't lie for attention it just makes everything worse when the truth is revealed

18. Don't change for anyone else, be the real you and if they like you then good job and if they don't then their loss.

19. No one is perfect in this world, even if you think someone is absolutely gorgeous they may even have their own insecurities.

20. Laughing out loud with your close friends till you have tears in your eyes is the best thing ever

21. True friends don't make fun of your appearance, things you enjoy and your weird quirks and if they do find new friends because everyone deserves to be happy.

22.  Last but not least, have 'me' time once in while in this crazy, fast-tracked world filled with responsibilities and expectations.

Let me know some life lesson you've learnt in your lifetime in the comments below and I hope you enjoyed this post.

Lots of love
