21 things i've learned before 21

Even though it's been a few months since my 21st birthday, I've been sitting on this post for some time now because I wanted to get it right, it required more thought on my end to put into words the most valuable life tidbits that I have learned up until this stage of my life. Obviously, by no means do I have life completely figured out, it's typically evident that I'm not even remotely close to having it all together haha, anyways I comprised a list  of little life advice that hones into one of the most impactful life lessons that I have learned and made me to who I am today! Enjoy!!

21 things I’ve learned before 21

If you aren’t happy in your current story, you have every right to change the narrative!

Doors & chapters of our Ives close for a reason, don’t revisit. The past is the past for a reason after all 

Don’t be stupid & save all your high school graduation money (or at least just don’t blow through it all)!!! 

Stay inquisitive about the world and everything around you. 

Shut off the negative vices in your head, they are only holding you back!

Keep yourself healthy: spiritually, emotionally and physically 

Don’t drive yourself crazy trying to understand why certain things happen or don’t happen, life has a way of unraveling itself 

Even though it may be hard to do so, become more of a listener

Develop some sort of routine to keep you structured & feeling accomplished at the end of every day

Slow down, you don’t have to have everything figured out just yet. You are still so young with so much growth to be made!!

Act your age

Start romanticizing every aspect of your life. Not just the good, but during the ugly and all else in between 

Go out of your way to do something nice to strangers, doesn't have to be a huge production, just something to leave them feeling loved

There is more to life than just high school 

Recognize your worth and constantly fight for it, don’t settle !! 

It’s ok to feel emotions, cry!! be a hot mess! 

Don’t be afraid to speak up and ask for help

Don’t feel ashamed of who you are, the right people will find attraction to your uniqueness.

Comparison will kill ya, embrace your authenticity! 

The smallest gesture, even a smile can brighten someone’s day, be that light! 

We all know the age old rhetoric that “communication is key.” It may be easier said than done, but ultimately so many issues will be resolved while just speaking what’s on your mind!
