02.12.2014- Another Year Older..

Tuesday, 2 December 2014

Well, here we are! Today is my 25th birthday!! Whilst, in the grand scheme of things, this might not seem like the biggest achievement in the world, it feels a little bit more significant than lots of other birthdays- I suppose because it's the last big landmark before turning 30...! I'm still not convinced that I'll ever be a grown up or ever feel like one, but getting older definitely helps with getting wiser. So, in the spirit of, erm, celebrating reaching a bit of a milestone, I've compiled a little list of some of the most important things I've learnt from life so far: 

- The more you stop caring about what other people might think of you, the happier you will be. 
- Fair weather friends will come and go, but there's nothing which compares to the unconditional support of your family- particularly your mum. 
- One of the simplest pleasures in life is staying in on a Saturday night with a cup of tea and Strictly Come Dancing. 
- Life's too short to waste time on people who make you feel anything other than happy. 
- Cod Liver Oil is for life, not just for Christmas. 
- Never underestimate the importance of little achievements. 
- Make time to be adventurous. 
- Remember what you are capable of and never let anyone else tell you otherwise. 
 - Your gut instinct is usually always right. 
- Sometimes banter with the lads is better than any number of girlie chats. 
- Don't worry about being left behind- live life at your own pace 
- When you're at your lowest ebb, the people who really matter will be there to pick you back up. 
- Live your own life and for the moment. 
- There's no point worrying about being able to walk in high heels when you're five foot nine. 
- Cake is for life, not just for birthdays!


What are your pearls of life wisdom?

  2. Happy birthday! Love your list - definitely agree about living life at your own pace, getting older has made me care a lot less about all the things I haven't done! x
