28 things learned in 28 years….


Surprise…. I’m 28 today (Happy birthday to me). So I thought I’d share 28 things learned over these 28 years of life…. And hopefully pass on some words of wisdom – or not.

  1. Self care isn’t selfish, it’s a necessity – even if you’ve only got 5 minutes. Take that time for yourself and check in regularly. *
  2. Asking for help doesn’t equal weakness – coming from someone who used to be ashamed of asking for help.
  3. Knowledge really is power.
  4. Money doesn’t equal happiness – but can be a tool towards happiness *
  5. Time is precious – treasure every second with loved ones and make the most out of every day.
  6. Peoples negative opinions of you aren’t a reflection of you, they’re a reflection of them.
  7. You really can’t help stupid……
  8. Time doesn’t really heal grief… grieving does, but grieving takes time.
  9. Sometimes friends are only temporary and that’s okay.
  10. School is not the be all and end all… you’ll spend more of your life out of school than in it, so stop worrying about it.
  11. Mistakes happen, it’s whether you learn from them or not which is more important.
  12. Everybody makes mistakes.
  13. You are not perfect, and neither is that model on instagram.
  14. Romance isn’t like the movies… and neither is sex. *
  15. You’re allowed to say no to anything you don’t want to do, and it’s okay!
  16. Your parents will always get on your nerves..
  17. And you will always be a child in their eyes.
  18. There is never a point where you suddenly become an adult….
  19. Never stay in a job you hate.. *
  20. Be okay with letting things go – you can’t take it with you in the end anyway.
  21. Bit morbid but we’re all heading towards death – so live a little first.
  22. Never put off doing something you really love. unless its drugs… don’t do drugs.
  23. Age really is just a number.
  24. Fall in love.. with as many people as you can. *
  25. You can’t make everyone like you…. and you can’t like everybody else – no matter how hard you try.. some people are just arseholes.
  26. People can be arseholes… leave them to it
  27. Stop cringing when people talk about sex… how do you think you got here?
  28. You should never, ever stop learning!

There we have it, 28 things I’ve learned over my entire life… I could have probably carried on going, but I stuck with 28. I’ve also put (*) next to some to identify some upcoming posts.

I hope you liked it, if you’ve got a similar blog post leave it in the comments 🙂 I’d love to give it a read.
