19 things I learned at 19!

Good-Afternoon babes, I turned 20 a week ago today, and this post was supposed to be uploaded on Monday, but I totally forgot!!, But better late than never. So anyway! I thought it’d be fun to share 19 things I learned at 19, my last year as a TEEN! I must say I haven’t been all that excited about such a “pointless” age in my opinion! Like okay I’m no longer a teen and??? The real party is at 21! but I’ve come to appreciate and feel blessed to see another year & that’s really all that really matters. Most of these will be in the form of quotes I’ll try and give credit to the person behind the quote if I can find it! The reason for that is because I believe I’ve either learned, grown, or even overcame with these quotes.

Now let’s stop with all this rambling! Here are 19 Things I learned at 19!

  1. Do not rely on others for your own happiness. Happiness comes from within oneself that you have the power to create.
  2. On bad days, learn to find some piece of joy to get you through.
  3. When life becomes difficult learn to find the light that will guide you on the right path.
  4. “One Of The Lessons That I Grew Up With Was To Always Stay True To Yourself And Never Let What Somebody Else Says Distract You From Your Goals.” – Michelle Obama
  5. Believe in yourself, take on your challenges, dig deep within yourself to conquer fears. Never let anyone bring you down. You got to keep going. – Chantal Sutherland
  6.  Believe you can and you’re halfway there. — Theodore Roosevelt
  7. Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.
  8. The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.
  9. Loneliness adds beauty to life.
  10. The best way to cheer yourself is to try to cheer someone else up.
  11. Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
  12. The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.
  13. What we think determines what happens to us, so if we want to change our lives, we need to stretch our minds.
  14. If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. Jim Rohn
  15. Many things can make you miserable for weeks; few can bring you a whole day of happiness. Mignon McLaughlin
  16.  Just allow yourself to be whatever it is that you are.
  17. Some people can’t believe in themselves until someone else believes in them first.
  18. Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
  19. God has you in the position that will make you focus on who you are. – My Dad


So that concludes my 19 things I learned at 19. I’ve been 20 for a week a legit nothing feels different (I mean does it ever?), but nonetheless I am extremely blessed to be able to see another year! Is it too late to do a blog post on what I ended up doing for my birthday? Let me know!!
