21 things I’ve learnt before turning 22

Hey lovelies, I’m turning 22 on the 6th March so thought this would be a great post to do as I have learnt a few things about life through the years and I wanted to share them with you guys. It’s also nice for me to remind myself about what I’ve learnt too!

21 things I’ve learnt:

  1. Do what makes you happy
  2. Not to care about other people’s opinions
  3. Learn to love yourself
  4. There’s no good ages after you’ve turned 21! – Seriously the next milestone is 30 *cries*
  5. Always Trust your gut
  6. Accept that you’re still growing and changing and learning who you are
  7. Failing is a part of life ( I learnt that here)
  8. Make the most of every moment because all moments become a memory
  9. Treasure your time with loved ones
  10. Be kind to others
  11. It’s ok to have 5 lipsticks the same colour because they definitely have different undertones 😉
  12. It’s ok to self indulge sometimes wether that’s food, Netflix or shopping
  13. Always put effort into relationships you care about
  14. Starting your work/tasks earlier than 2 days before the deadline feels soooo good
  15. You will always have down days every now and then, but you will always have up days too
  16. Be selfish sometimes, you can’t constantly be looking out for everyone else because you will end up neglecting the most important person in your life – you
  17. If you’re feeling down and need a cry, cry. You will feel better for it.
  18. If you’re feeling shitty, you will feel a whole lot better tomorrow
  19. Everyone is fighting their own battles, you just can’t see them all
  20. Don’t ever let anyone make you feel less than you are worth
  21. Your alcohol tolerance goes downhill after 18

There’s 21 things I have learnt. I hope you can relate to a few or I have inspired you to take on your own lessons. I like to think I’ll learn 22 new life lessons in the next year as your 20’s are all about learning who you are and where you wanna be in life.  What important life lessons have you learnt since your birthday?
