Here are a few things I have learned over the 22 amazing years:

  1. If you’re not happy, you can’t make other people happy – this one took me a while to learn but I realised that happy people make people happy! IMG_1866
  2. Always keep smiling – smiling is good for you and the people around you so keep smiling.
  3. You can’t make everyone happy – life is short and there over 7 billion people in the world.. simple maths says you can’t please everyone.
  4. Alone time is good – being around people is nice but it is important to spend some time alone just thinking and reflecting.IMG_0133
  5. Never let the child in you die – you don’t have to be adulting 24/7, its fine to let your inner child out every so often.IMG_1925
  6. Stay in touch with people – when you find the right people in your life, stay connected and don’t let them go. IMG_1785 (Edited)
  7. Let them go – when you realise someone isn’t right for you, let them go and walk away. DSC_0646
  8. Make time for yourself – life will get busy and other things will take priority but looking after yourself and your mental health is key.
  9. Explore – the world is big so go, travel and explore the world. IMG_2087
  10. Leave your comfort zone – comfort is good but sometimes it is important to push yourself and try something that scares you.DSC01321
  11. It’s okay to ask for help – got an issue, something went wrong, you don’t understand something, just ask for help.
  12. Do something for others – As important as it is to look after yourself, it is also important to do things for others. The smile on their face is the best gift.
  13. If you want something, you got to work for it – nothing in life will fall in your lap. So, if you want something then you are going to have to work for it. IMG_0180
  14. Dreams come true – you know all those little dreams and desires we have, well, they do come true. You just need to have a little faith. IMG_1154
  15. Don’t compare yourself to others – comparing yourself to other people is the worst thing you can do, you’re unique and special and that’s all that matters.
  16. Exercise is good for you – this one I only learn recently but it is key. Exercise makes you feel better and is really good for you.
  17. Time always makes things better –  I don’t believe that time heals all wounds but I do believe time makes things a little easier.
  18. Take a break from your phone – I talked about this in another post but take time away from your phone to appreciate the things and people around you. IMG_0818
  19. Sing and dance – sometimes, you just have to belt out your favourite song and do some crazy dance moves.
  20. Accept who you are – this includes your culture, your body, your skin… everything.7614
  21. You can’t always be right – it is okay to accept that and let other people know too. That doesn’t make you stupid.
  22. Love your parents and family – THIS ONE IS KEY! As we get busy we forget about them but honestly, one phone call or text is all they want.

Over the years I have learnt many other things but I feel these are some of the most important things. I hope you take away at least 1 or 2 things.

Now, I am going to go and enjoy my birthday and you all have a blessed day ❤
