July 1st of 2017 i finally turned 21! Thinking back on my life, so many things have changed that i’m so grateful for.
1- Love often- Love love love and let yourself love. It’s the most amazing feeling in the world.
2- Appreciate everything- Life is so much more beautiful when you appreciate everything you have.
3- Listen- You can learn so much more if you just shut up and listen to everyone and everything around you. Don’t just hear.. listen.
4- Be yourself- I cannot express this enough. You are an amazing individual! Appreciate and love the person you are.
5- Care- Nowadays i think people like to act like they don’t care about anything to avoid getting hurt. Caring is a wonderful trait as it makes your heart so much fuller.
6- Be dependable- This is so important for all relationships. You want to keep your friends, family and all loved ones closer? Stay true to your word.
7- Try new things- The world we live in is so amazing! Trying new things is not only fun and exciting, but it opens your mind and lets you see things from a new perspective.
8- Work hard- You will never get anywhere without working hard. Things don’t go your way? Work harder. Things are never just handed to you.
9- Save- I’m still working on this one, but saving money gives you the opportunity to do so many things. You need money to travel and do fun things, but most importantly, you’ll need a cushion for unexpected happenings. Car repairs are not cheap, neither are medical bills. Having this extra money will definitely save your ass and your credit.
10- Don’t oversleep- This is so easy to do, but you can miss out on so much fun! Enjoy each day- you have plenty of time to sleep when you’re dead.
11- Everything in moderation- Coffee is great, alcohol is great, marijuana is great, food is great, makeup is great, but too much of anything can cause some issues. Find a healthy balance.
12- Anxiety- Anxiety is a new thing to me, but boy is it awful. All of the sudden everyday tasks can be so difficult and draining. Talking to people, even close friends and family can be an hard and you yourself don’t even understand why. If you know someone that suffers from anxiety, be easy on them. They’re fighting more demons than you think.
13- Relax- Everything will work itself out in the end. Don’t stress to hard on things you can’t change.
14- Amazon shopping- I LOVE AMAZON HOLY SHIT. I cannot tell you how many bathing suits i’ve bought for $8 a set. Our living room, dining room, bedroom, everythingggg is basically from amazon at such low prices! If you need to do any shopping at all, check amazon first.
15- Clean- If you know me, you know my place isn’t the cleanest of apartments… but when it’s messy i do feel unsettled. A clean house is a happy house and a happy mind.
16- Outdoors- Moving to Reno was one of the best things i could have done, mostly because everyone here loves being outdoors so much! The beautiful Tahoe is right next door, and there is so much hiking and camping in the area and actual GREEN in NEVADA.
17- Be independent- It’s a part of growing up and is amazinggg. With more independence comes more responsibility, but being on your own is such a great feeling.
18- Health- Take care of yourself! If you don’t do it now, you’ll have to deal with worse things in the future. Eat right, exercise and you’ll have the energy to conquer anything
19- Be nice- Being anything else is a waste of time… Karma is a real thing and people will get what they deserve.
20- Be happy- Enjoy yourself and everyone and everything around you. Let yourself be happy and don’t dwell on the past.
21- Relationship- A little over a year ago, i found the person that totally completes me. We aren’t perfect, but i’ve never been so happy. I love you baby! Thanks for being one of the greatest blessings in my life. & happy birthday to you too 😉
