22 Lessons in my 22 Years

I’ve recently turned 22 last month, and before going any more further, I want to look back and reflect what life has taught me throughout my 22 years of living. These are only few, and I still have a lot here reserved. This blog post is very personal to me. Each of the number I listed below has its story to tell which I choose not to elaborate further. I hope you can relate to a thing or two of my life’s lessons. Let’s start!

  1. Strive to be at your personal best everyday.
  2. Embrace change, take risks.
  3. Don’t be afraid to speak out if you have to.
  4. You only have one body, invest in your health, exercise, eat clean, take in vitamins.
  5. Learning is a never ending process.
  6. People come and go, and only few stays, that’s totally okay.
  7. Don’t compare yourself with others, you all have unique stories and nobody got the same.
  8. It’s okay to be different, it’s okay to not always fit in. Be yourself!
  9. You also have life outside work. Leave the office on time.
  10. Know your passion. Do what makes you happy.
  11. Meet new people, socialize and travel as much.
  12. Read books because you don’t only feed your stomach but your mind too.
  13. Not all people will understand you, and not all people will agree to you.
  14. Things you see in social media are not always true.
  15. It’s okay to fall, just pick yourself up and try again, and again, and again.
  16. Love yourself. It’s okay to be selfish sometimes. Don’t carry the burden of others because you’re already carrying your own.
  17. Stay away from your social media accounts when you’re at your peak.
  18. Save money and invest while you’re still young.
  19. Enjoy simplicity. Be thankful and grateful everyday.
  20. Learn to say no.
  21. Treasure your family. They’re all you have.
  22. Trust God, always.
