26 Lessons in 26 Years

26 Years Old! Another year to jot down in the history books and another year where I proudly say I still stand tall. So there have been 26 years worth of tears, laughs, collapses of exhaustion and moments or pure elation which I believe is in some constant David & Goliath battle with moments of pure depression and grief. Here are 26 little lessons I’ve learnt from 26 years of life. Lessons that I have learnt from my parents, friends, family, teachers and people from all walks of life.

  1. It’s all about the little things/ moments.
  2. You actually don’t need to be like everyone else and that’s ok.
  3. You have to try and live in the moment.
  4. It’s amazing the difference a hug can make.
  5. Social media isn’t actually the real world.
  6. Try not to overthink it.
  7. You don’t always need to forgive and forget someone.
  8. You’re not the only one fighting this battle.
  9. HOWEVER, you are still within your rights to feel sorry for yourself sometimes.
  10. Laughter will forever be your salvation in all of this.
  11. This too shall pass…? Not necessarily.
  12. Kindness will always take you further and it certainly isn’t as draining.
  13. I promise that your courage will shine through when you need it.
  14. Forget all the petty things.
  15. Hard work might not always pay off, but at least you’re not left wondering.
  16. Never say something definitively without having all the required knowledge. Things are not always as they seem.
  17. See, do, eat, and live everything you can get your hands on!
  18. You are not the only one who believes that they are right, everyone has a VALID opinion whether you like it or not.
  19. You don’t have to do everything at once.
  20. Just because you cant control it, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stress the consequences.
  21. Nothing beats the food that you’re craving.
  22. Your time on this earth is determined by how you spend it and how you remember it.
  23. Life’s a lot easier when you can have a laugh at yourself.
  24. You’re allowed to trust the research
  25. Don’t let the sunshine ruin your rain
  26. Grief is apart of the healing… so scream if you must, then heal
