So, I have just had my 24th birthday and approaching my middle twenties has got me thinking about the person which I have slowly grown into. People always say if I had known then, what I know now you would have done some things differently. But part of life and growing into yourself, actually benefits from going through all those things. But if you are feeling a bit concerned about approaching your twenties or mid twenties, that is exactly why I have decided to share 24 things which I have learnt by the time I was 24.
#1 You can have as many careers in life as you want. You don’t have to decide what job you will have and stick for that for the rest of your life.
#2 Don’t settle for a job you are not happy in while you are young. The best job should be something you love doing.
#3 Life has some very unexpected bumps, so take every exciting opportunity that comes your way.
#4 Try to approach life with the mind of a fearless child.
#5 Friendships last even at a distance as long as the thought is still put into it.
#6 A good relationship, adds something extra amazing to your life when you are already feeling happy with life itself.
#7 Honest Communication is key to a good relationship and building trust.
#8 The best relationship feels like teamwork. Except equal amount of effort and dedication.
#9 Your friends will all be in different stages of their lives. Some will be married, some at university, some may have children. Be mindful of the differences in each of your friends live.
#10 Invest time in your health. Your body starts to age sooner than you realise and what you put it through now, will have an effect on the future.
#11 Diets are toxic. Eat everything in balance and move around.
#12 Have as many hobbies as you like. Play is something adults benefit from as well as children, so follow your interests.
#13 You don’t have to be a professsional to enjoy doing something.
#14 Always make time for learning. Read, watch, listen. Anything that grasps your attention- learn about it.
#15 Don’t be afraid to be yourself and embrace all the quirks that make you, you.
#16 See as much of the world as you can. Travel. TRAVEL… TRAVEL!!!!
#17 Move abroad for a little bit.
#18 People will value you if you stand up for what you believe in.
#19 You are in fact an adult, even if you still feel like you have not got it all figured out.
#20 Follow your gut. It is usually right.
#21 Take a million photographs. You will never get this moment back again.
#22 You are never to old to learn how to do something.
#23 Don’t be rushed into anything, take it all at your own pace.
#24 Enjoy all the little moments. They will be the most special.
