23 Lessons in 23 years

Well friends,

I’ve made it another go around the sun! Welcoming 23.

Ah, 23. If you asked me 5 years ago where I thought I’d be today I would have had a different answer. But I am so happy as to where I am now. I am surrounded by people I love daily, I am living in a state I would’ve never thought I’d call home. Even 5 years ago I would still know today that I am madly in love with my high school sweetheart. Somethings you can guess til the end of time and some things take a different course of action.

But regardless, I have learned a thing or two:

  1. start each day with a cup of coffee #coffeeaddict

Just kidding! Here they are:

  1. Always say I love you, you will never know when it will be your last time to say it to someone dear to you
  2. Marry your best friend
  3. You’re never to old for sleepovers
  4. Always find laughter in your day, the kind where you can’t breathe, let out a little snort, and your sides hurts
  5. Sometimes being out in nature is the best medicine
  6. What other people think of you is none of your business
  7. Don’t focus on the past, you are not going that way. learn to let go
  8. Smile at strangers, be kind, you never know what someone else is going through
  9. Comparison is the thief of joy
  10. say yes to dessert, ALWAYS
  11. get yourself a dog, they’ll bring joy to your everyday
  12. don’t assume people know what you are thinking or how you are feeling you have to tell them
  13. stop and smell the roses
  14. don’t take the little things for granted
  15. take that picture, it’ll be nice to have later
  16. Happiness comes from within, don’t rely on anyone else to do that
  17. also it’s not your job to please everyone
  18. somethings are better left unsaid, you don’t always have to have the last word
  19. agree to disagree
  20. stay in touch with friends
  21. don’t fear change, we need it to grow
  22. stop thinking to much and learn to live in the moment
  23. never stop learning

Here’s to another amazing year ahead!
