Week 30: Your Current Age
With this week being my birthday week, I felt that this challenge couldn’t have come at a better time! In just a few short days, I’ll be turning 24! Time feels like it’s flying by and I can hardly believe I’m already approaching 24. For this challenge, I thought it would be appropriate to share with you 24 things I have learned so far in my lifetime! I’m so grateful to have made it this far in life, and I do my best to treat each day as a new beginning! So here are the 24 things I’ve learned so far in my life!
- Don’t stress over separating your darks from whites, just wash them in cold and be done with it. They’ll be just fine.
- You’ll never look back and regret the time you spent with your loved ones.
- There will always be more money, but never a chance to do over some of the experiences you’ve missed out on.
- Our whole lives aren’t always a guarantee, things could change at any moment.
- If it brings you joy, then it’s worth keeping.
- I’ve learned to savor every dish. After all, I’ve never regretted a single bit of food I’ve eaten.
- Write it down, you will forget.
- Read more often and write as much as you can.
- See the world while you’re still young.
- If you’re ever unsure whether or not to eat the cake, do it.
- Visit the places that make you happy often.
- Disney World really is the happiest place on earth.
- Love takes work, it doesn’t just fall in your lap and it’s anything but an easy ride.
- Learn to accept the things you cannot change.
- Learn to prioritize what’s important.
- Be a goal digger, because goals get you closer to the things you want most.
- It’s okay not to have everything figured out.
- Don’t bother trying to keep up with the Jones’, it won’t make you happy.
- Having debt means you purchased things you could not actually afford.
- Keep an emergency savings, even if it’s only a few hundred dollars. You will need it someday.
- You’d be surprised how much joy a pet can bring you.
- Show your spouse that you love them each and every day.
- Take on each day as a fresh start.
- Don’t ever stop trying, because it’s only when you stop trying that you’ve failed.
I have learned and experienced so much in my relatively few years, and I’m looking forward to the adventures that are ahead! Be grateful for the time that has passed and the time in the future, because you never know how much you have left. So live every moment like it’s your last, and enjoy life while you can.
