22 things I’ve learned this year

Holy Moly! 22 years on the Earth! Time flies so fast. It feels like yesterday when I was hiding behind the curtains while playing hide and seek with my mom.  I was really thinking this was the best hiding place ever.2017-07-30 12-53-05This day always makes me look back, and do a recap of my life. Just like seeing a short movie. I can say that this year I feel more grateful than ever for being alive. For every single moment in my life. Both good and bad. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if just one small detail was different.

This year was life-changing. I hit rock bottom and this totally changed my life perspective. A few weeks ago, I was nominated for a blogging award and I had to answer some questions. One of them was “What are you most proud of in your life” and I was happy to realize that I’m proud of who I am. Even if that sounds a bit selfish, I’m totally proud of myself. I had some hard times but I’m grateful for each one of them, cause they made me grow. They made me grateful for what I already have in my life. So I thought I could share with you today a few things that I’ve learned in my 22nd year.

  1. We are responsible for everything that happens in our life. Either good or bad.
  2. Life is too short to worry about what others say or think about you. If you know your worth and what makes you happy, everything else is just not your business.
  3. You can’t be good to everyone. When people are dragging you down, cut them off! Even if this sounds a little harsh, you have to make your happiness a priority. People who understand that will support you, people who don’t should be out of your life. So simple!
  4. Struggles make you stronger. Without struggles, we all would be weak. Face every struggle as an opportunity to learn and grow.
  5. Fall in love with yourself. Because this relationship lasts forever.
  6. You can start over every morning. Always. A fresh new start!
  7. Time is priceless and limited. It shouldn’t be wasted. Use it wisely.
  8. Find a job that you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Never settle because of money or because of the circumstances. We only live once you know…
  9. All our dreams can come true. No matter who you are, or your age, or your past. We live in the greatest time in the history of earth! The possibilities are countless!
  10. Don’t trust everything you see. Even salt looks like sugar. Oh, that’s a really wise quote that helped me through…
  11. You can’t change other people and other people can’t change you.
  12. Pep-talks are awesome! Like going to the mirror and tell yourself how awesome and beautiful you are. Talk to yourself! I promise you it’s the best “mood-booster”!
  13. Writing down things will always be better than electronic! Write girl! Write! 
  14. The best ideas come with a glass of wine. Or in the shower. Or at 2 am. Seriously. Every single time…
  15. Deep house is my favorite kind of music. It always lifts me up and gives me those summer vibes!
  16. Coffee is a magical potion and I couldn’t be more grateful to the man that discovered it!
  17. I will always be blonde. Even if I will try other hair colors, I will always come back to blonde. It just … feels right!
  18. Mascara and Lipstick are a girl’s best friends! I couldn’t live without them, that’s for sure.
  19. Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer. The best investment you will ever make for yourself.
  20. Every day you should learn at least one new thing. Always try to be better than yesterday.
  21. Party with people who celebrate life! Because your vibe attracts your tribe!
  22. Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.

One thing I’m also proud in my life is that I’ve finally found what I love to do. I love to write and I’m really passionate about it. Now I have a purpose and a plan to follow. I think this year that’s coming will be my best year ever! (We will see about that in 365 days, but… I’m pretty sure it will be awesome!)

So, bye 22 and welcome 23! Cheers to getting older! ❤

  1. I agree that travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer. The experiences you have in life are the ones that matter, not the piles of money. Because you won’t take anything material with you when you die.


    • Exactly girl. We’re all “guests” on this world. We come and go just in our own skin. We just need to enjoy the most of this life as much as we can, until the time to “go” arrives. Thank you so much for commenting!


  2. I love this, it sounds as though you have learnt so much already! Some of these lessons took me much longer to learn. And yes, mascara is my best friend too – I look exhausted without it!

  3. Happy Birthday .. it’s great to be 22! I love your list. If I could tell my younger 22 year old self something, it would be to relax. Life always has a way of working itself out. x


    • We all need to fall in love with ourselves no matter our age honey! Ourself is our partner for life! No matter what! From the moment we’re born until the moment we will leave this world it’s just ourselves! Every moment and every second! So just be in ❤ with you! 😀


  4. Time is definitely running fast – it waits no-one! You are smart and clever young woman. All those things you’ve learnt during your years make you stronger and wiser. I like the point that you can start over every morning.

    • Thank you so much sweety! You’re making me so emotional! Thank you for your kind words! A brand new start is something we all need, so every time we wake up is a new chance to “slay” the day! ❤


  5. Next year I will be turnng 30 years old! I cannot believe it and sometimes I still feel like 18 years old. The only diffference I feel is that I know much more than when I was 18yo. Every year I’m learning something new so I recomment you to make the same list next year and compare it 🙂
