31 Lessons I’ve Learned by 31

As you read this It will be the eve of my 31st birthday – not exactly a milestone birthday but I always like to take the opportunity to look back and see where I’ve come from and be thankful for the lessons, good and difficult. So here are the 31 things i’ve learned before turning 31.

  1. It’s okay to ask for help
  2. You are a whole person – you were never searching for your other half – your enough as you are
  3. It’s okay to not be okay sometimes
  4. Your anxiety is not a weakness

  6. You are stronger than you think
  7. Believe in yourself more
  8. Don’t look for love, it will find you when it’s right

  10. Travel as much as you can – it’s good for the soul
  11. Never stop learning
  12. Meditation is not an easy fix but it’s worth it

  26. Switch off from social media every now and again – it’s good for you!
  27. If all else fails – fresh air helps
  28. Realise that everyone has their own problems and battles
  29. Manners are priceless

  31. Age is just a number – act like a child if the mood strikes!

So, those are my words of wisdom – my life hasn’t always been smooth sailing but I am grateful for all the above lessons, I am sure they are the first of many!
