25 Things I've Learnt at (almost) 25.

25 things i've learnt at (almost) 25.
  1. I'm never going to grow any taller, just gotta live with it and be positive - child prices for life.
  2. People will always want to pass their opinions or judgments. Just smile and nod whilst silently telling them where to go before moving on.
  3. Spots don't go away when you get older, they just like to leave scars and always seem to appear at the worst time.
  4. I really shouldn't have screwed up my teeth again after I had my braces taken off. I would have been so much happier with them straight and now it's a pain in the ass to save up again for them.
  5. You only need a small number of friends to be happy. It's a waste of time trying to surround yourself with fake people.
  6. Sometimes you have to let a dream go, even if it breaks your heart at the time. You never know that you'll find a new dream along the way.
  7. Looking after your skin is more important than splashing the cash on expensive makeup. I really should have started investing in it much earlier on, perhaps I wouldn't have as many problems if I had.
  8. Value the time you have with people, you'll never know when you last see them until it's too late. Make time even if it's just getting a cup of tea or popping round to say hello.
  9. Don't let anxiety get in the way of living your life. Looking back at the number of opportunities and experiences that I've turned down over the years because of it kinda makes me feel a bit sick. I missed out on so much.
  10. Never let anyone tell you that you're not good enough.
  11. Food isn't something to be scared of. You'll battle through anorexia twice and come out the other side, although they'll still always be the occasional bad day.
  12. Don't be ashamed to stand up for what you believe in, even if everyone else thinks you're mad for doing so.
  13. I'll never not be obsessed with Harry Potter. Sorry not sorry.
  14. The people who pick on you at school won't be relevant later in life. They must've had their own troubles if they needed to take it out on someone else.
  15. Don't attempt to wax your legs with sellotape. It hurts like hell and it'll leave a lasting scar.
  16. Never be too embarrassed to talk about things with your Mum. Remember that she's been there and done it all already.
  17. A good warm bath with a cup of tea and a bath bomb can fix pretty much anything.
  18. Screw going out, it's so much better to stay inside with a cup of tea, a good tv drama and fuzzy socks.
  19. You're never too old for Disney and there's no shame in liking a bit of pink.
  20. The Beanie Baby collection will never be worth the millions of pounds the rumors used to say. They'll just gather dust in the attic for years to come.
  21. Thinking of 25 things is actually a lot harder than I'd thought it'd be.
  22. You're just lying to yourself when you say you'll be ready in five minutes. It's twenty-five at least, if not more.
  23. Never think you're being a pain at the doctors or wasting time. If you think something's wrong, keep going back until you get answers. Ovarian cysts are a bitch.
  24. Stick at blogging. There may be periods where you're just full of writer’s block, but getting back into it is half the fun when you get to rediscover your passion.
  25. Enjoy life, live in the moment and don't look back.
