Twenty on Twenty

Today marks my twentieth birthday, and now that I am no longer a teenager (cries) I feel like I'm in a good position to look back on my twenty years to see what I've learnt.

  • If you don't want or enjoy the same things as your friends that is ok. 
  • Balance is always key. Always. 
  • As tempting as it is, don't spend all your money on clothes and other inessentials. There are always other things that will bring you more happiness. 
  • Your age does not define your abilities. 
  • Live in the now, not the future or the past. 
  • Always be humble and kind. 
  • Comparison really is the thief of joy. Comparing yourself to someone else really will make you miserable. 
  • A good night's sleep can solve almost anything. 
  • Regular exercise is important and will make you feel incredible. So force yourself to do it even if you don't want to.
  • You really do get to a point where you don't care what other people think. 
  • It is important to make a bit of time for yourself on an everyday basis. Even if it is just a quick soak in the bath. 
  • The more effort you put into something, the more you get out of it. 
  • It is really easy to keep plants alive, no matter what people say. Just remember to water them. 
  • Friendships come and go, it's not the worst thing in the world. 
  • If you want something, ask for it. 
  • Ditch the makeup wipes. A good skincare routine is essential. 
  • Everyone feels scared about growing up at some point, no matter how much they might hide it. 
  • Having a driving license changes everything.
  • It is incredibly difficult to eat Ben and Jerry's off a plate. #firstworldproblems
  • Nothing will ever be as hard as life as a teenager. Nothing.
