It’s weird, I always thought of 23 as being so old and here I am with still so much to learn, so much to experience and a long way to go! I have been blessed with 23 years of adventure, opportunities and meeting so many wonderfully inspirational people. So I want to share with you 23 things I have learnt so far from travelling, family, dating, friendships and things in between! So here it goes:
My mum and dad are probably the coolest people I know
Don’t trust Google maps. It lies.
Self compassion is one of the most beneficial things I have invested time in
Documenting your travels is such a necessity - you will forget 95%* otherwise
Tiger balm bite cream is probably one of the best purchases I have ever made….
Digestive dipped into hot water with lemon needs to become a thing
I am the happiest when I am not on my phone
I have realised that friendship needs effort when a part but should be effortless when together
It’s okay that some friends are only in some chapters of your life
I’m all for dating apps/meeting online – but you can’t beat meeting someone in real life
When dating I have learned to ask are the they best for me, not the other way round
The phrase: to make ends meat is actually to makes ends MEET: Mind. Blown.
Social media isn’t real.
I have 100% control over my stress and happiness
The more I research the more I realise the cosmetic, food industry and medical industry aren’t always on my side
Gin doesn’t give me hangovers
Diasarnno and milk is an underrated drink of choice
I never regret spending money on experiences
Reading wil always be better than Netflix
Trying a new hobby ever year has been a major source of my happiness
Ignorance is not bliss
Don't live for the weekend - make plans for a Wednesday
Everyone loves karaoke. Even if they proclaim they don't, my 23rd birthday party proved otherwise.....
