24 Things I've Learnt at 24

Fun Fact: I have always been a super observant person. Whenever I come across a learning in life, I tend to write it down in my little notebook. So I thought what better way to share these things then  my birthday. I'm sure you'd relate to at least half of these things. And if you haven't already come across them then you will soon.

1. It is okay to not have your life figured out. You just have to keep working towards something everyday and if you work hard enough you will get there.

2. Always decide on a goal for the next day before you sleep. So you have a vision to wake up with every morning.

3. Meet people outside your social circle. This would help you get a whole new perspective on life and would definitely broaden your mind.

4. Anything and Everything will take time. Learn to be patient.

5. Learn to let things go. You cant have control over anything other than your reactions towards them.

6. Know your worth. It's really important to realize ones own caliber.

7. But at the same time be open to learn new things. You can't always be right.

8. Spend as much time with your family as you possibly can.

9. Learn to say Yes! You don't know what opportunities may come your way!

10. But at the same time know where you should draw the line. Say No when necessary. Don't ever let people take advantage of you.

11. You are a sum total of the 5 people with whom who spend the most time with. Choose them wisely.

12. Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. Have a Why Not? attitude towards your aspirations. 

13. Read as many books as you can. Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.

14. Also, make sure you go and see different places. Experience different cultures, eat food that you've never had before. This will not only help you learn but it will help you grow as a person too! 

15. Try and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I don't mean a healthy body but a healthy mind.

16. Once in a while do something on your own. Go watch a movie or have dinner by yourself. It's more liberating than lonely.

17. Never give into pressures. Do what makes you happy, when it makes you happy.

18. But make sure that in the process you don't end up hurting the ones who've always been by your side.

19. Don't settle with just anybody just because you think it's the right time. Give love a chance.

20. Have a hobby. Do something which you do only because you love doing it. It's so important to have a happy place in this age of constant competition.

21. Try and move away from your parents house at least once in your life. Be it for study or for work. This will not only make your a better person, but it will also bring you closer to your parents and maybe even help you understand them better.

22. Know how to live on your own. Cook for yourself, do your own laundry, handle your own money matters. It is such an essential part of being able to grow as a person.

23. Know that everything happens for a reason. There is always a bigger picture in sight.

24. And lastly practice gratitude. This is something I've taken up recently and trust me when I tell you, it has changed my life. Never have I felt this good about myself and been more appreciative towards my blessings!
