Understand the importance of setbacks.
Take your time, live by your own rules, not the stereotypes. Just because everyone around you seems to have it all together, it doesn’t mean that you’re wrong or you’re failing, you’re just doing things a little differently.
Don’t settle, whatever you do, do not settle because you’re afraid nothing better will come along because it will if you’re both brave enough to seek it out and patient enough to wait for what you deserve.
It’s easy to underestimate the value of certain areas of our lives, but they all have a side effect, and these impact our lives greatly.
Most of all I’ve learned that I don’t have to fix anyone and that fixing any of you is not my job.
I think even if we know it is coming, nothing prepares you for how it feels to lose someone you love.
You have the rest of your life to figure out how to manage responsibilities, find a career and settle down. Now is the time to explore.
It’s so easy to fall into that mindset, telling ourselves ‘I’ll be happier when I get that pay rise’ or ‘I’ll be happier when I move house’.
I’m learning now, to let go of the me I used to think I wanted to be, and with that I’ve found a new appreciation and acceptance for the life I already have.
I’m a firm believer in life finding us exactly what and who we need when the time is right.
