The last day of 24

Today is my last day as a 24-year-old. Does this mean I’m entering my mid-twenties tomorrow? Was I already in my mid-twenties? I have no idea really. I do know that 24 has been a fantastic year for me – one of the best yet, but I am really excited for what’s to come!

One year ago, I shared 24 lessons I’ve learned in 24 years of life and wanted to re-share today before I turn the BIG 2-5 tomorrow. Stay tuned for more soon…Have a great day!

1. Travel often.
2. You deserve to appreciate all the wonderful qualities you bring to the table
3. Mom is the ultimate problem solver
4. Spend less time on your cell phone/computer and more time with people in person
5. Sometimes, a boy just doesn’t like you. That doesn’t mean you are insignificant, ugly or unimportant…at all. It just means that individual person isn’t into you, nothing more or less.
6. Floss + wear moisturizer
7. Some days/situations just require a hot cup of tea, a warm pair of socks and your prayer journal.
8. Send handwritten letters, especially thank you notes, whenever you can.
9. “Be open to whatever comes next.”
10. Find out what you are good at and what makes you alive — and go do it.
11. Gossiping solves zero problems, but talking out things that are bothering you usually does.
12. Forever21 + H&M are great for trendy, fun pieces, but always invest in good heels.
13. Read lots of books
14. Never underestimate a good winter coat {especially during snowstorms!}
15. There’s no need to rush.
16. Time spent with grandparents is never wasted.
17. When it comes to relationships, it’s okay to be picky. Don’t settle.
18. It’s important to know how to cook more than scrambled eggs
19. Appreciate the season of life you’re in at this given time.
20. Accept grace, abandon shame.
21. Those Homecoming dresses you wore in high school…a big no.
22. Smile as frequently as possible.
23. The best years of your life are NOT behind you.
24. Live life on purpose.
