With my 25th birthday quickly approaching, I wanted to share a list of 25 things I have learned living for a quarter of a century. I know I have made my fair share of mistakes in the past but life is about growing and learning from your experiences. After all, they are what has shaped you into the person you are today! So here it goes:

1. Be yourself no matter what circumstances arise. Being yourself is the coolest thing you could do and it makes people respect and love you more for it in the process.

2. Enjoy life as it comes to you because you never know when it could be taken away.

3. Know who your true friends are.

4. Keep those friends close to your heart and don't let them go. True friends are like finding an emerald in a sea of diamonds. They will stand out among the rest and are the most precious of all!

5. Love yourself before you can love another.

6. Persistence is key. In everything.

7. Find beauty in an otherwise ugly place. 

8. Put yourself out there regardless of the risk.

9. It is okay to live in the grey (or at least some of the time).

10. If you don't like a situation, you have the power to change it!

11. Being beautiful on the inside is ten fold better than on the outside. 

12. There is nothing better than staying home, cuddling with your significant other or puppies (if you don't have an SO), and watching a movie.

13. Be on time at all times. The "fashionably late" rule is something a consistently late person invented.

14. Motivation is the greatest thing to have in life. It forces you to achieve your aspirations. 

15. Family always comes first.

16. You can never have too many shoes. Never.

17. Music can sooth your soul and wash away any negativity.

18. Live music shows and festivals are the most fun of all. 

19. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you aren't good enough because guess what, YOU ARE!

20. Puppies will always win. Sorry my cat loving friends and followers!

21. Never fall into the world of getting married and having babies if you aren't ready. Just because your friends are doing it doesn't mean that is your intended path.

22. Never get so busy building your life you forget to live it. 

23. Be positive and everything else will fall into place. It's called the law of attraction, my friends, and it is real!

24. Always stay humble. 

25. Birthdays are fun no matter what age you are.

And there it is! I have so much more to learn in this journey called life and I will have fun doing so. Here's to another 25 years...and another...and another...


Comfortably Young
