Hey beautiful people,

24 seems to be the lucky number. In continuation of the celebration of my birthday and the blog turning two years today, I thought to share 24 life lessons. These lessons have contributed to my growth both in my personal life and on the blog.

  1. Patience is a virtue, sometimes we worry too much about everything and anything while in the end, when we remain calm and patient, things work it self out.

2. Trust your own journey and stay on my own lane, don’t compare yourself to others.

3. When you have an idea or vision don’t be scared to take the bold step to make it a reality. Start now and start simple, you will gain the experience over time.

4. Be careful who you confide in because not everyone has your best interest in heart.

5. Don’t chase friends, instead chase your vision and your dream. Friends will follow.

6. Surround yourself with the right people (I am a firm believer in this). The biggest issue is finding people who genuinely have your best interest at heart, but when you find them, keep them close. Human beings are created for relationship, the world is too big to be alone!

7. Work hard, be diligent, invest and save. However remember to live your best life while you achieve these things.

8. Step out of your comfort zone. Sometimes being too comfortable is more detrimental to our potentials.

9. Find your passion, discover your gift (especially when you are young) and  master it! Don’t simply rely on your degree.

10. Treat people well and be respectful, you will never know whose help you will need tomorrow.

11. Love yourself and embrace who you are.

12. Be grateful,I know sometimes I struggle with this and then I listen to another person’s story and think to yourself ‘gosh they are going through a lot worst’! but really it should not be this way, contentment is important at every phase of our lives.

13. Forgive but don’t forget otherwise you will end up making the same mistake.

14. Travel, it is a great way of experiencing the world, it contributes to having an open mindset and learning new things about yourself and the world around you. However, it is also important to prioritise and manage your time and resources, remember there is a time and season for everything.

15. I have officially refrained from the term ‘Family is everything’ because I have seen that this is not so true. But my family is everything to me, they know me so well and have seen me in my highest, lowest, kindest, most mean, most beautiful and not so beautiful self. I think that pretty much summarizes everything, I love my family and I appreciate them.

16. Believe in something! Have some form of spirituality, I believe in God. This world is too deep to not believe in a higher power.

17. Exercising and stay fit, this is important for our physical, mental and even our spiritual well-being. They all go hand in hand.

18. Find yourself before you find a man or vice versa. You bring way more to the table when you understand yourself and you create better boundaries.

19. Give, it is a life principle. When you give, you get more.

20. Dress well, present yourself in the most respectful way at all times.

21. Treat yourself, spend on you before anyone else does. Always put you first!

22. Take care of your parents.

23. Read, be educated.

24. Believe in yourself.
