21 Things I’ve Learnt In 21 Years

Hi everyone! It’s officially two days until my birthday, can I get a whoop whoop! Before you read about my makeup menu, outfit and everything else on Monday I’ve got some words of wisdom I wanted to share with you before turning the big 2-1. It doesn’t matter how old you are you never stop learning and sometimes life teaches you lessons, good and bad. These snippets of advice are just some of the many things I’ve learnt over the past 21 years and I hope you find them comforting.

  1. Always trust your gut instinct. I apply this a lot in everyday life; whether it’s deciding on a lipstick colour to wear that day or making practical life changing decisions like what subjects to pick at school or what to study at uni.
  2. If something doesn’t feel right don’t do it. Similar to the point above, if you’re not happy and don’t feel comfortable in a situation you don’t have to go through with anything.
  3. Don’t give in to peer pressure. It might seem cool at the time to be like everybody else but make decisions that benefit you not other people.
  4. 9 times out of 10 your mum is always right.
  5. Everyone is beautiful in their own way.
  6. Your differences are what make you special, learn to embrace them.
  7. It’s OK to be sad from time to time.
  8. Happiness is the most important thing.
  9. People may not always be there for you when you need them. I hope you find people that are.
  10. Laughter is the best medicine!
  11. Watching re-runs of F.R.I.E.N.D.S whenever they’re on despite having seen each episode hundreds of times is totally acceptable.
  12. A smile is the best accessory you can wear.
  13. Short girls are the best 😛
  14. Drink water and lots of it!
  15. Always be kind. Kindness doesn’t cost a thing and who knows, you could make someone’s day.
  16. The world would be a horrible place without music.
  17. School days aren’t necessarily the best of your life.
  18. Expectation is the root of disappointment.
  19. Animals are some of the best friends you can have.
  20. Try not to let fear stand in your way of anything.
  21. Life is a roller coaster for everybody, it’s full of ups and downs. There will be times you may feel lost and full of despair but never give up hope that one day all of your dreams will come true!

Let me know what you think of my list and what you’ve learnt throughout your life.
