22 life lessons at 22

So it was my 22 birthday 2 days ago and I was sat on a beach in Barbados soaking up the sun (don't worry I had my kids factor 50 on, the perks of being a red head!) But it gave me a little bit of time to reflect and give out some of the life lessons I have learnt over the years!

1. It's okay not to have your whole future mapped out, I still don't know what I want to do in the long run but what I do know is that I am having fun and thats all that matters.

2. Spend time with people that matter - especially with my job I am away for around 10 months of the year which is extremely hard but it makes me so much more fortunate with the time that I do have.

3. You will always end up going back to your mum no matter how old you get! I know its one of the first places I go if I have a problem.

4. Don't worry about what people think, as long as you're having a good time who cares what they think.

5. It is more than okay to put yourself first.

6. Not everyone in life is genuinely going to be there for you when times get hard, its all about finding the good eggs.

7. No one cares what you look like in the gym.... just go do your workout and then carry on with your day!

8. Positive mind set is everything! If you don't like something you have the power to change it, you just need to right mind set and get up and go to achieve it!

9. Everything happens for a reason - I am a HUGE believer in this, it might seem unfair at the time but you learn from it and it makes you a better person.

10. Passions in life change - something you once loved may not even be something you consider now, same with jobs just because you chose a certain path doesn't mean you have to stick to it!

11. Deal with things as and when they happen - there is no point stressing about something that hasn't even happened yet. I am the worlds worst for this but I have slowly over the years started putting this into practise and I have noticed a huge difference.

12. Make the big problems small, not the other way around - again very similar to the last one but I am a very dramatic person and will blow the smallest of issues way out of proportion and get myself so worked up about it.

14. Everyone has insecurities - If we were all the same life would be pretty boring.

15. Never take life too seriously, you have to have fun once in a while, learn to make a fool of yourself and not to care who is watching. 

16. Make time for yourself, do things that you love to do and things that make you smile every day! 

17. Make you're bed every day - so my theory to this is that making you're bed is the first accomplishment of the day, even if the day doesn't turn out the way you planned you have atleast accomplished one thing! 

18. Don't keep you're "Best" things for special occasions, every day is a special day.... if you want to burn that candle or use a new perfume do it! 

19. Be confident in who you are. 

20. Cherish every single moment with family and friends and remember to tell people how much you love them. 

21. Always listen and learn - education is never wasted no matter what form it takes, whether its learning a new skill off someone or going to school, college, etc. 

22. Work hard. Play hard. Love hard. 

Thank you for all the birthday messages so far and here is to the best year yet!

  1. So, MS Paint IDE 3.0 version has been released recently and it has a cool new feature called OCR or Optical Character Recognition. Even if you do not use MS Paint IDE often (or never) finding out more about this new feature might actually motivate you to learn more about the capabilities of this tool.
