27 things I have learned in 27 years

With my birthday pretty much here, I wanted to do something a little different than my normal posts and tell you the 27 things I have learned in my 27 years of life

1: Don’t take life for granted.

2: Bring your camera with you everywhere.

3: Little kind gestures go a LONG way.

5: Travel, travel, travel. Even if it’s by yourself.

6: Take care of yourself. You only get one body to carry you through this life.

7: A few minutes of meditation can make a significant difference in your day.

8: Never say you don’t like it until you try it.

9: Eat all the food. Always be trying new foods.

10: Dream big, and go after it.

11: Never underestimate the power of yoga.

12: Face your fears head-on.

13: Never stop learning.

14: If you don’t like something, do something about it.

15: Dogs make me very happy and I would have 1,000 if I could.

16: Slow. Down. - Stop & smell the roses.

17: Make mistakes. Learn from them. Keep going.

18: Admit when you are wrong.

19: Learn about yourself as much as you possibly can so you can use every part of you to your advantage.

20: Surround yourself with people that lift you up and encourage you to continue up.

21: Use please and thank you.

22: Everyone is human. Be gracious and understand that everyone makes mistakes and no one is perfect. Be slow to anger. And ask for forgiveness when you make a mistake and own up to it.

23: It’s okay to be wrong.

24: Let go of things that are toxic. If someone or something in your life does not bring you joy or causes you constant pain, remove it from your life. It has no place there.

25: Don’t be afraid to ask questions and be curious. (Curiosity doesn’t always kill the cat).

26: Constantly remind yourself of your dreams. Make vision boards, have daily alarm reminders, and even make yourself accountable. This way every time you make a decision you can have your dreams in mind.

27: Be unapologetically you.

A lot of these sound like advice, but it’s everything that I have been taught that really has stuck with me and means a lot. I try to remind myself a lot of these things daily and I challenge you to at least one of these things. Which one are you going to choose?
