28 Things I have learnt in 28 Years

Last month saw me turning 28. Just two more years until the big 3 0.

But I still feel like the 18 year old who used to go out till the early hours every weekend, that is until I try staying up let alone go out until the early hours.

I have random moments where it suddenly hits me that I’m a grown up. A responsible adult. The mummy to one who has just turned three.

I often wonder just how I have got to where I am now. Living in Hertfordshire with my team, miles away from the rest of our family.

Its true what they say, we learn something new every day. I have learnt so much along this 28 year journey. Things that helped shape me into the person that I am today and things that put everything in to perspective.

Some of the things I have learned have been more important than others, but every little thing has helped me achieve and get to where I am now.

  1. Life is short, make sure you make the very most of it.
  2. Dont compare yourself to others, being you is what makes you special.
  3. Don’t ever change to make yourself liked, always be true to yourself.
  4. All you can ever do is your best.
  5. Nobody is perfect.
  6. You can’t please everybody all the time.
  7. The only person you should worry about letting down is yourself.
  8. Honesty is the best policy.
  9. Take risks, you will never know what can be achieved if you play it safe.
  10. Believe in yourself even when others don’t.
  11. Never take anything for granted.
  12. There will be situations that you encounter which will make you realise who your real friends are.
  13. Having a handful of genuine friends is better than having hundreds or acquaintances.
  14. You never know the real meaning of love until you have children.
  15. Being a parent can be the hardest yet most rewarding job.
  16. It doesn’t matter how much tidying you do, when you have children your house is always going to be ‘lived in’.
  17. You never know what is around the corner.
  18. A simple smile can brighten someones day.
  19. It’s cool to be kind
  20. Do what makes you happy.
  21. The house work will still be there tomorrow
  22. Children grow up way to quickly, never take a single kiss or cuddle for granted
  23. Never doubt yourself.
  24. Real friends will always have you back no matter what.
  25. Always be true to yourself.
  26. Its ok to not be ok.
  27. Always grab opportunities with both hands.
  28. Mixing drinks is never a good idea.

Life really does throw a lot of lessons at us. But if I listed them all this would be a pretty long post so for now I will leave you with just these 28. What have been the biggest lessons that you have learned along the way?
