18 Things I have Learned in 18 Years

It’s my birthday in a few days, which means I have been doing a lot of reflecting. Reflecting on my life in general, who I am as a person, the goals I want to accomplish, this blog… basically a lot of things. So I thought I would share 18 things I have learned in the past 18 years (let’s get real it took me forever to learn these lessons, so let’s say in the last 5 years…), here they are!

  1. You’ll break your own heart sometimes.
  2. Relationships take a lot of work.
  3. You have to earn what you want.
  4. Always set new goals.
  5. Be there, even if the other person can’t be there for you. They are also going through a rough time.
  6. It will get better, it just takes time.
  7. You will surprise yourself with how strong and capable you actually are.
  8. Life is not race.
  9. It’s okay if you are at different points of your life, compared to others your age
  10. Listen to your gut, even if it tells you something you don’t want to hear
  11. Don’t jump to conclusions about people or situations, there is more to it than meets the eye.
  12. Don’t do something just because everyone else is doing it.
  13. Wear whatever you feel confident in.
  14. Only wear makeup if you feel confident with or without it.
  15. Being organized is key.
  16. Do everything you possibly can to be prepared, but the rest after that is up to fate.
  17. Commitments are scary, but you have to stick to them.
  18. Find a balance, it will be difficult, but you just got to keep working at it.

Here’s to being 19!!
