24 Things I've Learned in 24 Years

Allow me to just take a moment while I come to the realisation that I am now, in fact, 24 years of age. In reality, I actually feel like I'm about 8 years old, but what can you do? I don't even know what I'm going to do when I get to 25 (probably have a full on quarter life crisis I think)!

Birthday aside, I thought it was time I shared a little of my wisdom. Well, I say wisdom but it's more like tidbits...little nuggets of knowledge that have come to my realisation while generally living my life. I'm positive I still have so much more to learn, but maybe if you stumble across this post and you're younger than me then you might find yourself taking some of it on board. I wish I had a few times, that's for sure.

So here they are; 24 things I've learned in 24 years. 

1. Trust your gut instinct.

2. Fall in love with someone who makes you feel like you can do anything in the world. 

3. You can't save a friendship that doesn't want to be saved.

4. It's not embarrassing or wrong to have feelings for someone, and if they make you feel like there is then they are not worth your time.

5. Being consistently kind is difficult, but it will work out better for you in the long run.

6. Hoop earrings are a man magnet. 

7. It's far better to have few true friends than a hundred fake ones.

8. Disney World is the happiest place on Earth.

9. Wear what makes you feel beautiful, strong and important, no matter what other people think.

10. When you succeed, pay attention to those who say nothing. 

11. Always be the bigger person, even if it kills you inside. 

12. Music is one of the most wonderful things in the world, listen often and find the soundtrack to your life. 

13. If someone feels the need to belittle you, give them sympathy. They probably have their own problems. 

14. Date someone who has the same morals as you.

15. It's never too late to change your story if you are unhappy with it.

16. There's very little a huge hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows can't solve.

17. You can't change anyone.

18. Don't keep putting off that one thing you always wanted to do, just go for it!

19. If a man isn't chasing you, he isn't interested. 

20. Even if it's raining outside, appreciate every raindrop. Some people can't.

21. Don't waste your support on people who don't appreciate it and shower it upon those who do. 

22. The people who love you always have your best interests at heart, even if you feel like they don't understand. 

23. Once a cheat, always a cheat (They were right on Friends). 

24. True love is worth fighting for.
