21 things I've learnt in 21 years


So today is a bit of a personal post all about the lessons I've learnt in 21 years. I was originally going  do this on my 21st birthday but time slipped away from me. Anyway, from friendship and anxieties to blogging and my dreams, a bit belated but I hope you enjoy reading about it.

Never give up on your dreams. 
  1. People are in your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. 
  2. The reason can be to teach you something or just to pass the time.
  3. You're stuck with your family, they are there for a lifetime.
  4. Friends can come and go, so enjoy the time you have with them.
  5. Don't expect too much of people, you'll be left disappointed.
  6. Everyone's lives are different, don't compare your journey to someone else's.
  7. Don't expect too much of yourself, you are only human.
  8. Nobody's perfect.
  9. In life, you never stop learning.
  10. Hard work really does pay off.
  11. Don't give up on your dreams.
  12. Reach for the sky because if you miss you'll still end up amongst the stars. (Love this saying)
  13. You create your own path in life, don't rely on others to pave it for you.
  14. Everyone will have their own opinions on you and the world.
  15. Allow others to criticise you. 
  16. What goes up must come down.
  17. Knowing yourself is more important than knowing anyone else.
  18. Socialising is a skill.
  19. Life's no fun without spontaneity.
  20. Having an open mind really makes life more worthwhile.
  21. Leaving your comfort zone is where the fun really begins.

That's it for today's post. Are there any life lessons you want to share? Feel free to do so in the comments section below.

  4. Allowing others to criticise me is something I have found difficult but so important, criticism doesnt have to be this awful offensive thing, it can be something really useful to take on board! Thank you for sharing x

  5. I'll go with 18; Socializing is a skill. You're damn right! Rather than not socialize because you feel you're an introvert, why not learn it? It now depends on you to go extreme or not! Thank you very much boo x
