21 things I’ve learned at 21

So, I turned 21 a couple of months ago meaning I’m now officially an adult so I need to sort my life out and that I can legally drink in America which came in handy when I went to NYC a few weeks ago 😝 Let’s be honest here though, I love having a drink. There’s nothing quite like being wine drunk on a Monday night with your best pals πŸ’ž

I’ve been thinking about something to post for a few days, especially as I’ve had a huge loss of motivation because I’ve been really unwell, stressed with uni and just generally stuck in a bit of a rut, so I thought, why not write about some things that I’ve learned as I’ve moved from teen to adult? Keep reading πŸ‘‰πŸ½

1. Sometimes you just have to cut people out of your life in order to progress

2. Getting a tattoo didn’t hurt half as much as I thought it would

3. Learning to be comfortable in your own skin is one of the most empowering things you’ll ever do for yourself

4. That some people just aren’t supposed to be in your life forever

5. Witch hazel will literally cure anything

6. It’s ok to not be where you thought you’d be

7. That my best friends are the funniest, kindest, sweetest people I could have ever wished to end up with

8. That sharing a problem with someone really does help

9. To never, ever put on foundation with your fingers

10. To eat before drinking alcohol (I never learn my lesson)

11. That becoming a vegetarian would make me a more disciplined, healthy and empathetic person

12. Discovering that I can write backwards naturally… I’m a freak

13. That catching feelings too fast will literally rip your soul out into little pieces

14. That being in a toilet cubicle with your best pals and realising you’re very, very drunk and that you don’t care because you’re having too much fun is one of the best feelings in the world

15. That lip liner would impact my life more than I could ever have anticipated

16. Fake tan, too 🍊

17. Comparing myself to other people will never, ever be a good thing. Everyone is at different stages and that’s ok

18. Grades aren’t the be all end all

19. That it’s important to be able to spend time with yourself

20. That moisturising your skin is KEY

21. Personal success will always, always be the best kind of revenge

I could have added a million more things but they’re the first that came to mind, all I know is that I’m content with the person that I am right now and the path I’m going down πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“

Can you relate to any of these things? I’d love to hear your thoughts ✨

Until next time,
