21 Lessons on my 21st Birthday

So this is a bit late in posting, but I wrote this a few weeks ago when it was my 21st birthday just before Christmas and instead of the classic 'New Year New Me' post, I thought I'd share just how far I've come in these 21 years and some of the things I've learnt in hope that they can enlighten/remind some of you;


1. Health is more important than any academic achievement

2. Everyone deserves happiness

3. J.K Rowling is a genius

4. F.R.I.E.N.D.S will never stop being funny

5. Friendship knows no distance

6. Experiences and memories are far more worth time and money

7. Everyone has insecurities


8. Face your fears or they will always haunt you

9. Epilating is one of the most painful but worth it things to do!

10. Everything happens for a reason

11. There’s always time to learn from your mistakes

12. Thinking of another point of view helps understand the reason behind a situation or event.

13. You are never alone. There’s someone out there feeling/thinking the same thing – you will find your people.

14. Periods (or the pre-period period) really can make you think and see differently.

15. There’s always light at the end of the tunnel. Even if it seems like there’s no way to recover.

16. Every day is a chance to be the person you want to be.

17. Don’t wait to do what you want to do.

18. It's far better to have a few really great, loyal friends than loads that you don't feel truly yourself around.

19. Take every opportunity you get given

20. If you really want something, the universe will, in some shape or form, offer it to you.

21. Everything will work out so stop worrying!



What lessons have you learnt over the years?

  1. I love this post because it is filled with so much positivity! You learned amazing lessons for sure. I learned that distance doesn't affect real friendship as well. My best friend moved to another country and we are still talking like nothing happened and are making effort to meet once in a while :)

  5. These are such great things to be aware of/learn. I'm way over 21, haha, but I think one of the most important things I've learned/try to live by is to always be yourself and always be kind. :)

  7. Wish you a really happy 21st :D
    I think the most important thing that I've learned is always go for what makes sense for you, even when that represents to be against everybody else! We need to follow our convictions and beliefs :D

  12. You already sounder wiser than I ever was at 21 (ha). I agree on taking on a different point of view, it really changes how you think about meeting new people, and learning new things, and especially helpful in arguments!
