21 Things I've Learned...

Turning 21 really got me thinking about my life thus far. I began to look back on many of the lessons I've learned in the past 21 years. Actually, about the last 3-5 years have had the most significant lessons. I'm excited to see where 21 takes me, I'm loving the journey so far :)
  1. There's always a grander plan- even if you can't see it right away. 
  2. Do you. Take care of yourself.
  3. You need to know what comforts and restores you. For me, it's the beach and spending time with girlfriends.
  4. Live in the moment. You're only in this stage of your life once.
  5. Friends come and go through different seasons. Some are longer than others. If these "friends" are only bringing you down, let them go. Don't let them overstay their welcome. 
  6. It's never to late to start working out and becoming healthy. Focus on it one day at a time- you WILL get there. Be patient.
  7. Find one good thing in every day. It's amazing how that small thing can bring so much positivity.
  8. It's okay to not have everything figured out at this point in your life. Things will fall into place when the time is right. It has taken me such a long time to figure this one out- some days I still struggle with this. Considering as a little girl I wanted to be married with 3 kids by the age of 22. I don't see that happening for quite some time ;) 
  9. Be kind. 
  10. Learn to love yourself without a signifigant other. Finally becoming comfortable with this.
  11. Blogging has been such a creative outlet and I've met so many wonderful, inspiring women.
  12. My Momma has become my best friend. She's there through thick and thin, and actually means it.
  13. Change is scary, learn to embrace it. Our greatest accomplishments didn't come from our comfort zones.
  14. Laugh. A lot. 
  15. You will see people's true colors- when you see do, remove these people from your life. They are not worth your time or energy.
  16. If there's ever an opportunity to take a trip to the beach, DO IT. 
  17. Being home is always worth it. It allows time to become grounded and refreshed.
  18. Some of the greatest blessings come from things we didn't even know we wanted or needed.
  19. A fresh coat of nail polish can cure a multitude of sins. 
  20. Always turn to God. In triumphs, trials and lulls, He is there even if it doesn't seem He is. 
  21. You are enough. Allow no one to tell you otherwise.
