I’m so blessed to say that I am a quarter of a century years old!!! I know, I know, I’m probably cheesier than your average cheese ball but bear with me. This is the oldest I’ve ever been and the youngest I’ll ever be so let me live!giphyI’m so ready to see what the next 25, 50, 75, or even 100+ years may bring. (Yea, I said 100+ years, so what?) Anyhow, below you will read 25 things I’ve learned in my 20’s aka one of thee best stages of my life.

  1. Relax! Don’t expect to get married, have a career, a house, and children at 23. CHILL.
  2. It’s okay to not have EVERYTHING figured out.
  3. Take EVERYTHING as a lesson and an opportunity to grow.
  4. Stay prayerful, hopeful, faithful, and spiritual.
  5. FOCUS on your career, passions, and goals in other words, focus on what makes you happy, laugh, or cry tears of joy.
  6. Travel as much as possible and create lasting memories.
