21 Things I've Learned in 21 Years


I have lived on this earth for 21 years (and a couple months). Everyone has different lessons they’ve been taught from their years on this earth. Here are my 21 things that I have learned in my 21 years.


  1. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING is like in the movies

  2. Love is a beautiful thing, in every shape and form

  3. Always let doggos give you kisses, no matter what

  4. Life is too short to not remind someone you love them

  5. You aren’t alone, even in your loneliest hours

  6. Time won’t stop for anyone, but the moments it feels like it stands still, are always impactful

  7. Counseling does not make you weak

  8. Be spontaneous, but make sure it’s something you can live with

  9. Everything is needed in moderation- including exercise

  10. Don’t lose sight of the end goal with a minor inconvenience

  11. You are smarter than you think

  12. Stay humble

  13. Bad things happen to good people. It’s okay to be angry about it. Just don’t let it consume you

  14. Cherish the little moments

  15. Put down your phone and talk to the person next to you

  16. People are genuinely good (except Donald Trump). Everyone wants to do some type of good for the world


  18. You are a small drop of ink in a well, but you are powerful

  19. Don’t be a prick

  20. There is more to life than working and paying bills

  21. God is good, even when you feel He is against you. Put faith in His plan


I have many more life lessons to learn. This is just the tip of the iceberg that is my life to come. I can’t wait to take on the adventure that I have been given, to make memories with the people I love, to lean on the shoulders of those who care about me during hard times and vice versa. Your life is beautiful and it matters. Remember that.
