27 things I've learnt in 27 years

'Rambling thoughts from a newly
turned 27 year old'

I can't quite believe that on Tuesday I turned 27...I think this is the first year I actually freaked out a little about my age. Last year it was fine as I had my hen do mixed in with my birthday so I didn't really feel like I was getting older but this year, especially now that I'm married, 27 just feels really old!

I thought I would put together a little post about 27 things I've learnt in 27 years. They're not all super serious, it's a bit of fun and I thought it would be good to share my 27 year old thoughts with you all. Also on a side note, they're not written down in order I was just jotting them down on various days!

1. Don't turn down an invite because of anxiety. Just breathe and go for it, make yourself go as much as you can because I guarantee you will not regret it!

2. No one really knows what they're doing in life, we're all just going with the flow and hoping for the best, so don't stress!

3. Make time for your hobbies, and at the same time don't stress if you don't have any! You don't need a hobby to have an exciting life.

4. Write everything down in your calendar e.g. seeing friends, paying bills, peoples birthdays, friends interviews - it's such a handy way to help you remember!

5. Making eye contact in the street can be very awkward, but smiling helps and it may just make someones day!

6. Appreciate the people that love you.

7. It's good karma to help out a stranger when you see them struggling.

8. Look after your mental health before you do anything else.

9. Saving for something big like a wedding or a honeymoon is so rewarding! Next is a house (or baby...!)

10. Talk. It. Out. Whatever the argument, whoever you think is wrong or right, always talk it out before it's too late.

11. Don't be afraid to stand your ground for something you believe in, fight your corner.

12. On the other hand, sometimes silence says everything you need to say.

13. Get rid of the toxic people in your life, you will feel so much better without them.

14. If you don't like your job then look for something different, it's not always about money.

15. Care less about what other people think. The opinions of strangers doesn't matter, you do you.

16. Sometimes you have to take risks in life for the best things to happen.

17. Declutter twice a year otherwise it all gets pretty overwhelming when you move out.

18. Take as many photos and videos as possible! Back them up, print them out, and put them into albums like we did in the 90's. Instagram and Facebook may not last forever.

19. Always kiss your partner goodnight, and never go to sleep on an argument.

20. That feeling you get when someone buys you flowers? How about returning the favour, everyone loves to receive flowers.

21. Good things come to those that wait. Try to be patient and enjoy the ride, whatever you are hoping for will come in time.

22. Celebrate every tiny victory, whether it be a new job, publishing a new blog post, or even stepping foot outside when you really don't feel like it. You're doing great :)

23. Work to live, don't live to work. Make sure you are making time for people and look at the bigger picture, your career isn't everything.

24. Not reaching a goal doesn't mean that you've failed, you've just changed the direct in which you were going.

25. Get all the chores done in one day. Just do it and then it's done!

26. Stop comparing yourself to others and beating yourself up. People only show the best part of their lives, you never know what someone is going through until you ask.

27. Don't ever be anyone but yourself.
