22 lessons

On my 22nd birthday I want to share this list. I wrote down notes over the past six months or so of some important things I've learned. Some of them are things I learned at a young age, some have become more important in recent years, and others i'm still working on.

1. there's nothing wrong with not having everything figured out
2. sometimes people suck, and sometimes people let you down
3. it's okay to change your mind
4. dessert might not fix all your problems but it's a step in the right direction
5. soak up the good moments and enjoy the little things. take your picture of the sunset but then put away the camera. you can choose a filter and post it later because that picture is never going to capture that moment quite like they way you experience it right then in person
6. worrying about things you can't change is a waste of your time and energy
7. be a good listener
8. no one really knows what they're doing
9. do what you love and what makes you happy. you can choose happiness! the mind is a powerful thing
10. life is what you make it. so don't waste it trying to make others happy and worrying about what they think. you have to do what's best for you
11. send more handwritten letters. the personal touch means more to a person than you might think
12. go after your dreams because no one else is going to do that for you
13. go to every concert
14. sometimes you just need to cry and that's okay
15. have a backup topic ready incase a conversation needs an emergency change in direction
16. i do believe that if it's meant to happen it will happen. but you can only think like that after you have done everything you can to succeed
17. there are truly good people out there. and some terrible people
18. don't hesitate to go out of your way to do something special for someone you care about
19. you have to be the best you. and you decide the rules for that
20. change is good because it helps you learn how to appreciate things in life
21. life's not fair
22. learn to say "yes" more. be spontaneous!
