22 THINGS I’VE LEARNT IN 22 YEARS

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that last week I turned 22. If I’m honest, I cannot believe I’m already 22. I feel like I only turned 18 last year.  Anyway.. when I was younger I thought people at this age have their lives together and they are ‘proper adults’. Well, here I am and my life is nowhere near ‘together’. However, growing up I’ve learned a lot of life lessons, so I thought I would share 22 things I’ve learnt in 22 years.

22 THINGS I’VE LEARNT IN 22 YEARS

  1. Blood is not thicker than water.
  2. Friends come and go.
  3. It’s okay to make mistakes.
  4. Change is good, it’s essential for growth.
  5. Money is evil.
  6. Actions speak louder than words.
  7. Bible is the best self-development book.
  8. There’s no point in stressing about things that are out of your control.
  9. There’s no such a thing as ‘too much makeup’, whether that would be too much makeup in your collection or too much makeup on your face. The limit does not exist.
  10. It’s okay to fail, as long as you don’t give up.
  11. Everything happens for a reason.
  12. Giving to others and helping others helps to heal your soul.
  13. Your gut feeling is 99.9% right, trust it.
  14. What other people think of you is none of your business.
  15. Honesty is the best policy.
  16. University is a waste of time unless you actually love studying and being in education and/or want to get into a particular field, such as medicine.
  17. Gratitude multiplies happiness.
  18. Perfection is unattainable.
  19. Jealousy is a wasted emotion.
  20. Don’t save things for a special occasion. Burn the candles; use the nice sheets; wear the fancy lingerie. Today is special.
  21. Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  22. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

    Sveika. Ļoti patīk lasīt Tavu blogu, taču no telefona diezgan pagrūti, burtu krāsa mazliet par gaišu, diezgan jāpiepūlas lai izlasītu. Tas tāds mazs komentārs, varbūt tas tikai man personīgi liekas,

    I loved this post! Especially the part where Bible is the best self-improvement book, but can’t lie, I’ve never read it. Also the first thing: blood isn’t thicker than water and I agree, but still depends. Anyway, I love your blog aesthetic and writing, keep it up and you are only 22, you have a lot of time to achieve your goals 🙂
