25 life lessons for 25 Years

So yesterday was my birthday, happy 25th to me. And I realized something I’m a much different person to who I was 10 years ago and that’s okay. Here’s an interesting little post I put together with 25 things … lessons if you will that I’ve learned in my 25 years on this crazy wonderful planet.



  1. It’s okay to not know/take your time figuring out what you want to do in life.

2.  No matter what you do in life someone will judge you, just ignore them and do your own thing.

3.  The friends you have as a teen may not be your friends in adulthood.

4. If you enjoy something do it often. (so long as it doesn’t hurt you or others)

5. Not everyone wants to see you succeed … do it anyways.

6. It’s okay to ask for help.

7. Mental illnesses don’t mean you’re weak.

8. Don’t ever feel embarrassed for enjoying studying or learning new skills.

9. The earlier you start looking after your body the better.

10. Naps are a lifesaver.

11. Sometimes you just need to bundle up on the sofa with a blanket and a good book,                  movie or tv series.

12. Dance and Sing like no ones watching. It’s good for the soul.

13. Just because you have a different opinion to someone doesn’t mean you’re right and vice versa.

14. Sometimes things don’t work. It’s not a failure if you learn from it.

15. Everything happens for a reason.

16. Life’s too short to waste time on regret.

17. Don’t reply to texts, emails or messages when angry; take time to calm down then think things through before responding.

18. Being silly, having “childish” hobbies or having obsessions                                                              *cough Harry Potter cough*, doesn’t make you any less of an adult.

19. Your goals, wants, thoughts and opinions will change.

20. Always have a goal in mind with everything you do.


22. It’s not selfish to say no to people.

23. It’s okay to cut negative/toxic people out of your life; even if they’re family.

24. Enjoy the little things.

25. Everyone changes over time, it’s just a part of life.

    Happy Birthday! Hope you had a lovely day 😊 These are definitely good life lessons, mine would probably be: even though you may get your heartbroken & you feel that you will never get over it you will. Might not be straightaway but it does get easier in time.

    I loved all those 25 points you’ve stated. it’s actually amazing to notice how we change over the years. Though, I wouldn’t call it changing, I would call it evolving! But some people don’t understand that!

    Happy belated birthday! I absolutely love these birthday life lesson posts! All of your life lessons are something we can all take away but my favorite was “It’s okay to cut negative/toxic people out of your life; even if they’re family. I couldn’t agree with this more, this past year I had to remove people that weren’t helping me grow and although it was difficult, it was necessary. Sending love!

    Well happy birthday and congratulations for learning the life lessons. Just wait till you’re 35 and add 10 more to the collection haha. You’ll be much wiser.

    Happy Birthday Kitty! 🙂 This post made me nod agreeingly multiple times. To do list are a must and it’s also true that you should not think too much what others think. Instead concentrate on your own happiness and success.

    Yes you got all those points right. Everything is changing. I still can’t believe how many friends have left my life and how many friends have come.
