the things i've learned in my mid-twenties.

1. Life has a funny way of surprising you and will turn out completely opposite then what you envisioned. Embrace it, love it,every single moment. And most importantly be okay with it.
2. Don't worry what others think about you. Be you, and only you. It only matters if you are happy with yourself & the decisions you are making in your life.
3.Don't plan ahead too much. Live each day. And live it fully. You will stress yourself out and probably miss out on some really great moments.
4.Only be friends and surround yourself with those who are  positive, who uplift you and make you a better person. Make sure your friendships go two ways. There is nothing more draining. Also, there is nothing more rewarding then a true & loyal friend.
5. Dress up more. You never know who you will meet.
6.If you’re missing someone, it is okay to write him or her a simple a text — even when it’s been too long. Sometimes, relationships fizzle, but can easily be repaired by someone making the first move and saying hello.
7.Workout, eat healthy, and be active. You will thank yourself later.
8. Forgive & be patient.
9.Along with paying all of your bills pay yourself each month. Save. Those pennies will come in handy.
10.When it comes to dating: if it doesn't work out that Is just fine. There will be someone else who makes you happier. Don't sweat over it. There is a reason he didn't make it in your future. Be okay with that.
11. Find whatever it is that you're passionate about and make it a hobby.
12. Travel. Travel is the only thing that you buy that makes you richer. It gives your perspective. It is the best education you can give yourself. It teaches you more about life then you'll ever learn anywhere else.
13. Have alone time. This will keep you sane. And it's healthy. "I think it's very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person."-Oscar Wilde
14.Write in your journal more. It makes you happy. After all, this is the story of your life.

I love journaling but don't do it nearly enough

There truly IS a reason why every person you dated did NOT make it to your future! Ugh, this one is so hard...one of my best friends has had a couple (nbd) failed engagements and I can not wait for her to see her happily ever after and get married in the temple and realize that it was a blessing that the other two relationships went bad!
