Nineteen things in Nineteen years

by - Friday, September 23, 2016

And now I'm a year older...
Today's post is a little bit random and whatever as I thought I would just share 19 things I've learnt and realised in my wise old 19 years of living.

1. Live life in the moment. How cheesy. But seriously, make the moments you have count

2. Don't stress the small stuff because it's probably not going to matter.

3. Don't worry about those who don't worry about you.

4. Don't think about the 'what if' and worry how things could've been different.

5. Make mistakes.

6. Never fall into peer pressure.

7. Money and materialistic objects can only buy you temporary happiness.

8. With the last one being said, get yourself a savings account if you don't have one already.

9. You don't need to always be the best.

10. Fighting with your mum is normal, it happens to the best of us

11. Wanting to rip your siblings heads off is also normal, sorta...

12. Wearing makeup to make yourself feel better is FINE.

13. Give people the benefit of the doubt.

14. But don't give people too many chances so that they take advantage of you.

15. Don't be so quick to make assumptions.

16. It's ok to not have watched any of the Harry Potter series.

17. It's also ok to still enjoy watching cartoons even when your 19.

18. Enjoy family days as they may not happen as often when you grow up.

19. And lastly, your happiness is most important. Once again very cheesy. 

Hope you enjoyed this. I am extremely grateful for the life I have been given and hopefully this post has made you reflect as well!
