22 Things I’ve Learned at 22

In no particular order:

  1. Nothing can compare to a simple, heartfelt written note.
  2. It’s okay to say no to people from time to time. Life has to be about you sometimes too.
  3. Every day has beauty in it. It’s up to you to find it.
  4. Exercising is more than just trying to make your body look a certain way.
  5. Some things are just meant to go together. You’ll know when it’s supposed to be when you’re not constantly trying to make the pieces fit — they just fall into place with ease.
  6. Sometimes people just need a hand, a hug, a smile, or someone to talk to.
  7. There’s no greater joy than being that person for someone in need.
  8. Dogs are the best listeners.
  9. Being attractive and feeling confident does not have a direct, positive correlation with being thin.
  10. Old friends are the best friends.
  11. There’s nothing that a glass of wine and a bubble bath can’t fix.
  12. Never deprive yourself of those random indulgences.
  13. Take advantage of every second you get to spend with the ones you love.
  14. Every now and then you need to let out a good cry. Don’t be ashamed.
  15. Admit when you’re wrong.
  16. Let go of old grudges.
  17. Good neighbors are a gift from God.
  18. Eating healthy does not mean eating gross, boring food.
  19. Moderation will get you incredibly far.
  20. You are physically, mentally, and emotionally stronger than you think you are.
  21. Feeling unconditionally loved is the best feeling a girl could ask for.
  22. Diamonds really are sparkly.

What about you?

  1. I love both of these…

    # Every day has beauty in it. It’s up to you to find it.
    # Exercising is more than just trying to make your body look a certain way.

    Great list 🙂

  2. Yah… no. 4 is a tough one but definitely necessary to recognize and learn from. I’m going through that now, and it’s terribly painful. Keeping in mind no. 20 helps… also having lots of good friends and no. 11 in my life keeps me going. Oh this life..
