19 Things I've Learnt In My 19 Years Of Life

So it's approx a month till my 20th birthday (yeah I know WTF so old) so I thought a post like this was in order.

BUT being the worlds most impatient person there is I couldn't wait until September the 17th to write this, so you're getting it now - what a treat babes.

The following 19 points are things I've learnt over my fantastic 19 years of life so far, they're life lessons I've learnt (potentially the hard way) and they're things that may help you, so make me happy and give it a read...

1. Don't ever worry about what people think

Never ever waste your time or energy on the opinions of others. Like ever.

2.  You can't always control what happens

Life works in the weirdest of ways sometimes but you've just got to roll with it.

3. Appreciate everything, always.

Even is it's waking up every morning or someone holding the door open for you. Always appreciate everything, no matter how big or small.

4. Sometimes you need to give yourself a big kick up the bum and that's fine

Sit yourself down and tell yourself to get your sh*t together and you'll thank yourself forever.

5. Never stop learning

Your school years may have been enough but strive to learn something everyday; a new skill or a new fact just never stop learning.

6. Your Mum will always be right 

That friend, that situation or that outfit choice; yep, always listen to yo Mama.

7. Everything happens for a reason

Call it Karma, but everything does happen for a reason and everything will work out just fine.

8. Be uncomfortable

As some wise person once said "Nothing comes out of being comfortable." and AMEN to that.

9. Be nice 

It sounds so trivial, but honestly being nice is so much better than being rude or bitter.

10. Nobody really knows what they're doing

Yeah even those really adult-y Adults!

11. You've got to believe in yourself

Honestly, please believe in yourself because you can do whatever you want, go wherever you want and be whoever you want.

12. Everything will be okay

Trust me on this one.

13. Change is a good thing

Funnily enough, this is something I've only just recently learnt. At the end of the day, change is inevitable because life can't stay the same forever so embrace it babes.

14. Buy the shoes

Or the bag, or the dress. Buy it.

15. Family is everything

No matter what happens, your Family will always be there.

16. Surround yourself with good people

The ones that lift you up, the ones that make you laugh and the ones that make you a better person. Those ones.

17. You'll get over it

Whatever is bugging you, you'll get over "it". Promise.

18. Never be afraid to be weird

Being weird is fun, and I am your prime example.

19. Fake It Till You Make It

This one is the motto I live by. It speaks for itself so I shall say no more...

Peace out babes xxx
