It’s my birthday & 21 things I now know

  1. I am capable of doing anything, especially those things I said I would never do. I am capable of hurting someone, I am capable of cheating, I am capable of doing the worst.

  2. Do not force it, if it flows, it flows. If not let it go.

  3. No one is ever as happy as they seem. View each person and their lifestyle with a grain of salt.

  4. It’s okay to open up and get to know people. They have flaws too. No one is perfect

  5. The most dangerous place for me as the introvert that I am is in my comfort zone. It’s a constant struggle. I want this life that requires me to be in another zone which terrifies me. But then as I remain in my zone, I am unhappy because it’s not where I want to be.

  6. Do not be ashamed of your passions. I used to be ashamed that my passions were not as significant as being a doctor or engineer or something but I have come to terms with it.

  7. No matter what, ALWAYS, ALWAYS make time for what you love. It will keep you sane in between that 9-5, five days a week.

  8. You make a mistake, you learn from it. Now move on

  9. There comes a certain point in a person’s life where they must acknowledge the shit that happened in their life, move on,  and take responsibility for their life. Everyone has gone through something to one degree or another. It’s entirely up to you how the story ends.

  10. Jealousy kills relationships. Acknowledge it, address it and kill it before it festers and grows.

  11. It takes two to make a thing go right. If they aren’t putting the same effort into the relationship, it’s going nowhere.

  12. If it doesn’t feel right, do not try to make that feeling go away using reasoning. It does not feel right for a reason.

  13. Reality is only real to us, not to God.

  14. As a Christian, I struggle and battle with sins constantly. My struggles do not disable me from coming to church, from coming to God.

  15. Transparency is a great quality to find in a person and develop in yourself.

  16. Invest in good quality, key clothing pieces.

  17. Do not take things so seriously, let go…relax.

  18. Do not deny giving something to someone when you know you are able to.

  19. Say yes to doing things you wouldn’t normally do, ( as long as it’s legal).

  20. The human body doesn’t need that much food, eat what you need.

  21. A glass of wine helps.

 yes, it really does.


Thank you for all the birthday wishes. Thank you to my girls for treating me to a night out.

And a shout out to my dear friend who wished me the sweetest birthday this morning (you know who you are, I love you)
