19 Things I've Learnt In 19 Years

Thursday, 15 May 2014

It always amazes me how little I've changed in the past 10 years. Inspired by both Postcards from Rachel and Being Little, I thought I'd share what little wisdom I've picked up in the last 19 years.

#01 - If you don't ask, you don't get
#02 - Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same (yes, The Fray lyrics)
#03 - Remove everything negative from your life
#04 - It's okay to be selfish sometimes
#05 - Confidence is key
#06 - Nothing worth having comes easy
#07 - You must forgive yourself when you make mistakes
#08 - Never get tabasco in your eye
#09 - Look for the good in everybody (but don't let this make you vulnerable)
#10 - A friend that makes you feel bad about yourself is not a friend
#11 - Overthinking will always make things worse
#12 - Don't let anybody dictate to you what you should like - you do you 
#13 - Not everything is black and white; not everything is quite that simple
#14 - Look after yourself and take a break every once in a while
#15 - Hope for the best, but expect the worst
#16 - Drink milk with spicy food - not water
#17 - Don't get drunk the night before your birthday, as you'll spend your birthday hungover in bed
#18 - Everybody needs a bit of tough love in their life
#19 - The people that are there for you day in and day out are the people that you can't risk losing


  1. Also, worry is a total waste of time. It doesn't change anything. All it does is steal your joy.
