21 things I learned in 21 years

I turned 21 last October and I’ve had so many realisations that I feel like this is an appropriate post for me right now!

  1. You actually get more out of life by being yourself.
  2. Not everyone you have in your life will stay in your life and sometimes that’s actually a positive thing.
  3. If someone doesn’t like you for who you really are, they don’t deserve you.
  4. Never change yourself for anyone.
  5. Your time of the month is a perfectly acceptable reason to cry and feel like shit for however long it takes you to get through it.
  6. Forgetting your friends because of a boy is a seriously shitty thing to do. Avoid at all costs.
  7. Go for a walk, especially when feeling lethargic.
  8. University is only a good idea if you’re truly passionate about what you’re studying.
  9. Read books.
  10. There is no better feeling than new pyjamas and fresh bed sheets.
  11. Don’t drop your standards for someone who is most likely not worth it.
  12. It’s okay to feel nostalgic about old memories, you don’t have to completely erase your brain from things that have happened in the past.
  13. LAUGH. Laugh uncontrollably, laugh until it hurts.
  14. Never take too much on, don’t overwork yourself when you really don’t have to.
  15. Going out clubbing is actually rather overrated…
  16. It’s okay to scroll down Instagram for hours in a day.
  17. You were not grown up when you turned 18.
  18. You’re going to have to deal with people you don’t like on a daily basis.
  19. You should not try to be friends with ex-boyfriends, just treasure the memories and drop a smile if you happen to bump into them.
  20. It’s possible for your boyfriend to be your best friend.
  21. You really don’t look that hideous without makeup on.

I have honestly learnt so much more than this in the years I’ve been alive, especially in the past few years. I feel like I’m in such a great place in my life right now. I’m excited for the lessons I will learn this year, I’m excited to get myself lost in a career that I love and I’m super excited for all the memories I’m going to make with my boyfriend, friends and family!

Drop a comment in the box and let me know what your biggest life lesson is? 🙂

Until next time,

Amz x
