23 Lessons Learnt At 23

On Thursday, I turned 23 (the Blink song turns out not to be true, people do like you at 23!!) and to celebrate this, here are 23 things I’ve learnt within my lifetime.

  1. Life is bloody wonderful!
  2. Every single person is different and has their own story.
  3. You can’t live in the past, nor in the future – savour right now!
  4. True love is unselfish and unconditional.
  5. Even the darkest of days only last 24 hours.
  6. Having a good old cry can really help.
  7. No one else has a clue what they’re doing either.
  8. Try not to discuss politics or religion with people you don’t know, especially after a few drinks.
  9. Making mistakes doesn’t make you a bad person, it’s how you deal with them.
  10. You don’t have to conform to anyone’s expectations.
  11. Always take your makeup off at night.
  12. Animals are 100% better than most humans.
  13. Recovery isn’t linear.
  14. If it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t.
  15. Nature is truly beautiful, and you are part of nature.
  16. There’s only one you, look after yourself otherwise there will be no you.
  17. A good cup of tea can fix the majority of things.
  18. Sleep helps the brain and body to recover, make sure you get enough.
  19. Always be flexible, life can’t be planned.
  20. You are enough.
  21. It will get better.
  22. Love may quite possibly be the meaning of life.
  23. Broken bones hurt, don’t fall off kerbs!
