5 Things I Learned in 18 Years



So this is it, the big one eight. It has been a rollercoaster ride full of adventure, happiness, sadness, frustration, and love. With all those things are lessons I encounter everyday. The world is my classroom, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

5. Not Everyone is Raised The Way You were RaisedΒ 

Along the way, you meet people who may not be on the same boat. Whether they’re not as thoughtful as you want them to be, or they lack social graces, you can’t force them to act how you want them to. We are all raised by different people and that what makes the outcome of the way we live.

4. Do What You Love | Love What You Do

I know I’m not the only one who lacks interest to work when they don’t enjoy what they’re doing. I realized that you excel more when what you’re doing is something that you love. You like acting? Take workshops. Want to draw? Buy quality materials and practice. Invest in things that you love and take time to do it. Self satisfaction is important.

3. Live Your Life at Your Own Pace

There came a point wherein I doubted my self. I felt like I was late in a lot of things; specifically in education. But now, I realised that life has it all figured out. I wouldn’t be who I am today if “that day” turned out differently.

2. People Change People

A line from my favourite Disney series. (#SaveGMW hehe) You are made up of people around you and they influence who you are today. Let go of toxic relationships and bad influences. Make sure to settle with the right people, be with someone who brings out the best in you. It will save you a lot.

1. It’s Okay Not to be Okay

18 years of existence, of course I had a couple of bad days. Don’t take those bad days for granted, instead, make them an inspiration to be stronger and wiser. Making mistakes is normal for a human being, in fact, it’s a sign that you’re trying. πŸ™‚


Don’t lose that smile, little one.

This is just the beginning and I can’t wait to see what’s more in store for me!

Much Love,
