19 Things I’ve Learned in 19 Years

Hey all!

Today’s a special day, at least for me…  I even asked off work!  So… we’re really getting really to celebrate!

Aside from it actually feeling like fall outside (can I get an AMEN), it’s ma birthday!!  I thought it would be fun to share some of the greatest lessons I’ve learned in the past 19 years,

  1. Because I love reading other people’s lists, and
  2. Because it’s a chance for me to reflect!!

And those are two very cool things!!  So, I hope you enjoy!!

 

  1. Everyday work/study isn’t always glamorous. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t important.
  2. Family is everything. So, get over your sorry self and accept it every once and a while.
  3. Half-butt jobs aren’t worth your time. Do it right, or don’t do it at all.
  4. Just like you’d rather have 4 quarters than 100 pennies, 4 or 5 great friends are all you really need. Thank YOU, ladies!!!
  5. Instagram themes aren’t the be-all and end-all of life. (Thank goodness!!)
  6. Life is hard. Really hard.  But the lessons you learn from those rough spots are priceless.
  7. Some of the most important people in your life will likely come out of nowhere.
  8. Faith can get you through it. End of story.
  9. Never take your health for granted. It’s not a guarantee.
  10. Strive for empathy in all things
  11. Just do the thing that scares you. You won’t regret it.
  12. The glass is half full. Now it’s your job to fill it to the top with goodness.
  13. Never let the bad occupy more space than the good.
  14. Even if it’s small, you can make a difference in whatever you put your mind to.
  15. Glean on other’s knowledge whenever you can. Chances are, you can learn something!
  16. Comparison is the enemy of all happiness. Everyone’s story is different and unique, so no need to compare!
  17. Go for a walk, drink some water, sleep, get up early! Do what you know you need to do to treat yourself right!!
  18. You are loved. No man, or woman, needs to validate that.  So don’t settle!
  19. Life is full of blessings! So, keep your eyes open.  Even when it doesn’t feel like it, they are everywhere!!

I hope you all have a beautiful day!!!
