24 THINGS I’VE LEARNT IN 24 YEARS

Its my Birthday!

I always thought 24 was soooo old but now that I’m here I realize that age is totally irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, but that’s not to discredit the fact that I’ve been on this planet for 24 years! Bruh that’s some time, over that period of time life has happened to me and I’ve learnt a couple of things that I would like to share. I hope that these will help, inspire and refocus you as we step into another month, a new holiday season. Prequel to the New Year!

1.

NEVER SETTLE.

THERE ARE ALWAYS OPTIONS.

2.

TO THINE SELF ALWAYS BE TRUE.

BE YOURSELF, AS LONG AS YOU’RE A COPYCAT YOU CAN NEVER BE THE BEST.

3.

SELF – CARE ISN’T SELFISH. BE AS SELFISH AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN BE

4.

NO ONE OWES YOU SHIT.

5.

ASK QUESTIONS.

ITS IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHY OR HOW.

6.

TAKE CHARGE AND OWNERSHIP OF YOUR LIFE.

7.

STEP INTO YOUR POWER. YOU CREATE YOUR REALITY.

8.

HOW YOU PRESENT YOURSELF IS EVERYTHING.

9.

ALLOW WHAT YOU CANT CONTROL JUST BE, YOU’LL SAVE YOURSELF A LOT OF PAIN AND STRESS.

10.

SLOW DOWN AND BE REASONABLE. DIRECTION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN SPEED.

LIFE ISNT ALWAYS IN STRAIGHT LINES BUT IT’S ALWAYS IN ONE DIRECTION.

11.

ENJOY THE PROCESS. LIVE IN THE MOMENT.

12.

DISAPPOINTMENT IS A PLACE WE PASS THROUGH, NOT A PLACE WE STAY.

13.

PRIORITIES.

YOU DON’T FIND TIME, YOU MAKE TIME FOR WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU.

14.

NEVER FEEL GUILT OR SHAME FOR THE THINGS YOU DESIRE.

15.

DON’T ALLOW THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE DETERMINE HOW YOU LOVE.

16.

YOUR PAIN WILL PROTECT YOU. PAIN HAS ITS OWN REWARDS.

17.

THE MIND WILL ACCEPT WHATEVER THE IMAGINATION CREATES.

18.

WHEN YOU GO THROUGH A GATE, LEAVE IT OPEN.

19.

LOVE IS ALWAYS LOVE. YOU CAN’T FAKE IT.

20.

YOU ARE YOUR OWN RESPONSIBILITY AND NO ONE ELSE’S.

21.

THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU CAN EITHER MAKE OR BREAK YOU.

BE CAREFUL OF WHO YOU SURROUND YOURSELF WITH.

22.

A LOT OF STUFF, I WOULDN’T CHOOSE, NOTHING I WOULD CHANGE.

EVERYTHING THAT HAS HAPPENED MADE ME WHO I AM.

23.

LIVE WITHOUT FEAR. SURVIVING IS NOT LIVING. BRIDGE THE GAP.

EVERYTHING WORTHWHILE IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF TERROR.

24.

WHERE YOUR ENERGY FLOWS, YOUR FOCUS GOES.

I would love to hear from you which of these lessons resonated with you the most. Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time…

Yours Truly, Chalya.
