19 things I've learnt in 19 years

This year was my first year out of school and I've been thinking a lot about what's important to me, what my beliefs are and what I stand for. In thinking about these things, I've reflected over what I have learnt in my 19 years of life, and compiled them all into a list to share with you! I'd love to know if any of these stick out for you or even if there's something that you've learnt (that I haven't mentioned here). 

19 things I've learnt in 19 years (give or take a few)
  • Pay more attention to your thoughts. What you're thinking is what you're attracting.
  • Not everyone thinks the same way you think.
  • You're feelings are always valid. You're allowed to feel them and you can take as much time as you need to heal.
  • What you give power to, has power over you.
  • The most beautiful things in life are moments and feelings.
  • Some things will never go back to how they used to be, and that's okay.
  • Talk to yourself in the same way you would talk to someone else that you love.
  • You can't find happiness in other people.
  • Do more of what makes you happy.
  • It's okay to fail.
  • Spend time with your family.
  • It's okay to ask for help
  • Talk about yourself less
  • Always stay true to yourself and your beliefs.
  • Exercise more often, even if it feels like a chore
  • Debt isn't worth it
  • Holding onto a grudge is like injecting yourself with poison every day
  • This too shall pass
  • You aren't always right
  • You can't control others
  • Make peace with your past
  • What other people think of you is none of your business
  • Let go of striving for perfection
  • Engage in acts of kindness as often as possible
  • Never send an email to/ have a conversation with something you're angry with. Wait until you have processed your emotions.
