These include some things I wish I knew 10 years ago…

I just turned 25 (yay) and whilst I may still be young, I feel like I have learned a lot in my 25 years.

  1. You create your own happiness, it doesn’t just ‘happen’.
  2. Focus on quality not quantity when it comes to friends.
  3. Trust your gut – you will most likely be right and if not think about why your gut was telling you otherwise.
  4. Always be kinder than you feel.
  5. Spend your money on good quality things.
  6. Save!!!! At University I always made the point of saving as little as £5 a week and it added up!
  7. Never feel pressured into doing anything – if your friends are pressuring you into doing something you don’t want to do, they aren’t your friends.
  8. Make a vision board every year of your life.
  9. You can’t please everyone, so don’t waste time trying to do so.
  10. Think before you spend (still working on this)!
  11. There’s no such thing as ‘perfect skin’.
  12. Putting yourself first isn’t selfish.
  13. Communicate, communicate, communicate.
  14. Don’t procrastinate, just get it done! You will need to do it at some point so might as well do it before it stresses you out.
  15. If something isn’t making you happy – walk away. Life is too short!
  16. Embrace those things you are self-conscious about, they are what make you unique (my height is mine).
  17. You often learn a lot more from failures than from successes – it’s perfectly okay and normal to fail.
  18. It may be hard, but try your best to forgive people – life is too short to hold grudges and it isn’t fun to have negative energy between you and another person.
  19. There is more than one way to be ‘clever’, it doesn’t just depend on your school grades. I have met a lot of people who got straight A’s at school but have little emotional intelligence. Everyone is intelligent in their own way.
  20. Look after your teeth!
  21. Despite what you may see, you never know what someone is going through.
  22. Don’t rush something you want to last forever.
  23. You will never regret exercising and looking after your health.
  24. You attract what you put out – if you have a negative attitude, it is most likely you will attract negative things into your life.
  25. Look after your mental health, and talk about it with friends and family! It is SO important.
