Things I’ve Learned In 23 Years

  1. Life is a journey. You live and you learn.
  2. Write in your journal more often.
  3. Learn to spend with yourself. You don’t have to go everywhere with someone just because they send you a text asking if you can go somewhere with them.
  4. Time is an essence. A precious gift, you can never get back.
  5. Your friend’s (friends) aren’t necessarily your friends.
  6. Seek God in all your earthly doings. Cultivate a relationship with God. Sweet oh Jesus.
  7. Know your worth. Don’t settle for anything. (You are an asset. Know what you bring to the table. You are an addition to someone’s life, not a subtraction. If they don’t appreciate you, that’s their problem. “Sister’s Advice to Me”
  8. Understand that some friends are in your life for a season. People grow apart and though it’s painful, such is life.
  9. Don’t be afraid to venture out to try new things. Get out of your comfort zone.
  10. Spend time with your family. Create memories with them. Take lots of pictures & Record videos with them. Interview your parents. Ask them about their childhood/advice they would give to their younger self. It’s been amazing doing this so trust me, make the most out of it. Like my mom/dad says “Life is too short”. We are alive by God’s grace so make the most out of each day you are granted 🙂
  11. Waking up in the morning is a gift/testimony despite how you are feeling. Someone didn’t wake up. Be grateful.
  12. Every trial that we face in this lifetime serves as a purpose. Though we may not understand every situation, there is always a lesson if we pay attention.
  13. Be careful who you share your information with. Not everyone has a good interest at heart.
  14. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Laugh often.
  15. Don’t give people the power over you.
  16. Continue being yourself. Kind you are. Caring you are. Never change who you are because of how people have treated you.
  17. Save your money. This is not something that was difficult for me because I love to save but it may be a reminder to someone else.
  18. Speak life into your situation. Pray about everything. I mean everything. Get in the position where you can pray at all times. God is listening. He is closer than you think.
  19. Prioritize. If people don’t prioritize you, you don’t have to do the same for them.
  20. Don’t stress over things. Things will eventually work out for you. God has your back.
  21. Read books. Never stop educating yourself outside of the classroom.
  22. Stay Focused On Your Goals. Don’t make excuses because time surely flies and before you know it, all that you had set for yourself has not been accomplished.
  23. Embrace the season your’e in. Nothing is permanent. Continue to live, love, learn. Be your authentic self 🙂

Cheers to what lies ahead of us all. Have a lovely day 🙂 xoxo
