☆Your girl is officially 20☆
I'm feeling super excited & blessed that I’ve been on this earth for 2 whole decades. Kudos to me for making it this long & beating teenage pregnancy. Anyways, I thought I'd ring in adulthood by making a list of things I learned up until today. I know I don't have a lot of years under my belt yet, but I’ve learned a couple of things over the course of 20 years. So yeah enjoy and wish me a Happy Birthday:)
1 ). Live in the moment, but don’t forget to capture the moments. Snap all the shots of your adventures and date nights. So one day when you’re old and gray you can look back at the good mems.
2). Beauty is whatever makes you comfortable.
3). Never ever skip Girls Night (unless you’re on your death bed)
4). Time is money. Money is Time. Use both wisely.
5).The cost of living is way too expensive to not have savings. It’s always good to have funds for a rainy day or emergencies.
6). You won’t be everyone’s cup of tea and that’s ok..... not everyone has good taste. Don’t waste your time seeking other people’s approval. If you have to beg someone to be apart of your life, then they don’t belong in it.
7). You never know what life has in store for you, so live each day to the fullest. Don’t miss out on good opportunities because you‘re scared. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. Remember we are here for a good time not a long time🤘🏽🤘🏽
8). It’s never too early to start taking care of yourself. Monitor your physical health, invest in solid skincare products and trim those split ends! Now may we all age gracefully and healthy.
9).Be a humble beast. Do your thing but remember modesty is the best policy.
10). Be Kind!!!! People will remember how you made them feel.
11). The Circle Of Life: Cry. Smile. Laugh. Repeat.
12). We all go through that rebellious teenager stage where we think we have all the answers. I hate to break it to you ...... but SOMETIMES your parents are right.
13.) You don't have to be in a serious relationship. There’s no rush. Go out & make someone lucky😎
14).Adulting means being accountable for your actions and trying to score a spot in the 700+ Credit Club.
15). Give everything your all, so even if it flops you can say “at least I tried.”
16). There’s no problem a glass of wine can’t fix. Or a Starbucks latte for my sober/coffee-obsessed ladies.
17).Love won’t be like the movies. It will be tough. It will test you. It will be messy. But if it’s with the right person it will be worth it.
18). Chinese and pizza are 100% better than boys. Rare exception: boys that order takeout for you.
19). Never underestimate the power of a good nap.
20). Be unapologetically you boo boo.
