28. I turned 28 only 2 days ago, 28 little years on this earth with plenty of tripping and detours. I’ve learned so much already, and there is so much more I still have to learn!
Here are 28 things I’ve learned along the way:
1 – You’ll only know if you like it once you try it (this works for jobs, food and people 😂)
2 – No one will ever understand you completely, don’t take it personally, and hang on to the people that get some of who you are!
3 – Nothing is as scary or hard as you think it is. Not travelling or starting your own business.
4 – Just because it’s hard doesn’t mean it’s not worth it. The best things in life are hard to do.
5 – Planning is overrated, how can you get started right now?
6 – You can change your mind. On your future, your dreams and your goals, whenever you need too.
7 – life is supposed to be fun! If you’re not enjoying life change something!
8 – Keep it simple. Especially when cooking, and use the oven, it’s your friend.
9 – Comfortable shoes are always the best option. The heels are not worth the pain.
10 – Hot chocolate makes everything better. If you ever feel like the world is ending, have some hot chocolate.
11 – Most things won’t kill you. Remember that next time you’re afraid to try something new.
12 – College is important but not because of what you learn. What’s most important is what you can create in those year and the friends you make. Don’t focus on the grades!
13 – Breakfast is sooo important! I skipped it for years but you won’t believe the energy starting the day on a full stomach gives you.
14 – Enjoy the weather as it is. We complain so much about it being too hot or cold but there’s beauty in both! Sunny days on the beach or winter days by the fireplace.
15 – You don’t need much to be happy. Your loved ones, food on the table and a home. That’s it.
16 – When a kitten decides to sleep on your lap, say thank you and don’t move!
17 – Most of your colds can be cured with rest and a hot tea. But you need to rest, turn off the computer and rest!
18 – There’s beauty everywhere. No matter where you park your car there is beauty there, you just have to look for it.
19 – Wherever you go, there you are. You can’t run away from who you are, so learn to love yourself.
20 – Love is about supporting each other in your dreams. And letting them know that you believe in them.
21 – You can always do more work every day, but that doesn’t mean you should. Remember to have fun.
22 – For most things, there is no right way. There’s the way everyone is doing it but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it your way.
23 – Protect your dreams. The whole world doesn’t need to know your dream, keep it safe.
24 – If someone says it’s impossible there’s probably someone else doing it.
25 – Cherish the people around you, they won’t always be there. And remember them with care when they’re gone.
26 – Be yourself. There is someone who’s looking for someone just like you!
27 – You don’t need many friends. You need good friends no matter where in the world they are.
28 – You only live once and this life is to short for you not to live it to the fullest.
