21 Things I've Learned

 I can't believe I'm turning 21 tomorrow! What the heck?! I'm super blessed to be honest and of course I'm excited! Life has been great with beautiful things and not so beautiful things but everything has turned out to making me stronger. Thank you God. So on my 19th birthday, I posted on social media 19 things that you may or may not know about me. I look back and realize almost everything is the same. But when it comes to life lessons and things I've learned my list keeps growing. (of course if I'm personally growing) As I wrote this list, I've noticed how much I learned thru the years and just thinking how much more I will be learning. It was a great exercise I did and I wanted to share with you another part of me. 😊

I have learned ......
1. No matter the amount of burgers I eat. I will never get tired of them.
2. I can't make everyone happy nor can I be everything to everyone.
3. God always has my back.
4. Self love is so important.
5. I still don't like roller coasters.
6. Reading a book or a story always inspires me somehow.
7. There's always two sides to a story.
8. Family will always be my number one support.
9. Watching and listening to people you can learn so much.
10. Trying new food will not kill me.
11. Online shopping is so much better and easier.
12. Every hardship or challenge I go through, there's always a lesson I can learn.
13. Training and teaching martial arts has helped shaped me into the person I have become. (very grateful)
14. I'm addicted to White Chocolate Mochas from Starbucks.
15. I need to be more patient sometimes.
16. Making excuses keeps me in the same place.
17. I have an issue with putting mascara on my bottom lashes.
18. Getting feedback has always helped me grow.
19. I dislike the gym.
20. At the end of the day, only I can make things happen for myself.
21. Time doesn't stop. I can't believe my 21st birthday is tomorrow. Crazy! 

Thanks for reading!

  6. U looks so gorgeous..It's good to learn so many things!~ Get wiser!

  7. I actually turned 19 on October this year and I felt so old. I was quite sad that it would be my last year as a teenager. However, like you, I also learned new things. God will really be with us no matter what happens. He is the only constant One in my life. Appreciating one`s self is also very important because a lot of us often feel like we don`t deserve much in life.
