17 Things.

5 Mar 2015

In January I turned 17 and over those 17 years I'd like to think I've learnt a thing or two or, in this case, 17 things and today I thought I'd share with you the 17 things I've learnt in 17 years.

  1. Trust Yourself.  Sometimes you'll find the only person you can trust is you and so keep it that way. Trust your own instincts so if they're wrong you've only got yourself to blame.
  2. Make time for the things you love. Life doesn't always have to be stressful. Find something you enjoy and make time for it.
  3. You always have a choice.  If you don't want to do something, don't feel forced if you really don't want to. 
  4. Once you have an idea run with it. 
  5. Nothing lasts forever. Your friends now won't always be your friends.
  6. Why care what others think? Be yourself no matter what and people will love you for who you are.
  7. Don't make the same mistakes twice; there's not point. I had a bob cut and hated it and then a few year later I did again. Never make the same mistake twice- there's no time to.
  8. Embrace opportunities.  They may only come around once.
  9. Passions can change. 
  10. Inspiration can come from anywhere.
  11. To reach a goal, a lot of hard work is needed.
  12. Hard work will always pay off. 
  13. You can always do better. Push yourself to the limits and the results will be better than expected. 
  14. Confidence is just like any other life skill; you have to learn it. You aren't born with confidence, it takes time to gain and slowly you will if you believe you have confidence. 
  15. Life isn't easy. There are bumps in the road so be prepared.
  16. Appreciate everything you have. There's always some worse off than yourself.
  17. Do what you want. It's your life, all decisions are your own.
What is a life lesson you try to stick by?
Hope you're doing great,
