25 Things I Learned By 25

Today I turn 25. I'm older and maybe a little bit wiser. In honor of my birthday, here's the list of twenty five things I've learned about life up until now. 

1. The sooner you stop focusing on trying to make other people happy and impress others, the sooner you'll be happy. 

2. Taking time for yourself every day, even  if it's only ten minutes, makes you feel your best. 

3. Judging others only makes your self-criticism worse. 

4. That on and off (and one and off and on and off) relationship that you're desperately trying to plan your future around? End it now. It's not working. 

5. The way to find yourself is by getting lost. 

6. Don't buy anything you don't absolutely love even if it's on sale. 

7. Same goes for guys when it comes to hooking up. 

8. Travel every chance you get. It will open your eyes every time. 

9. Never say never. You don't want to give karma any bad ideas. 

10. Cherish the people in your life who matter. Don't dwell on the ones who don't. 

11. Be pleasant to everyone you meet, even if you're mentally picturing gauging their eyes out. 

12. Exercise. Endorphins are great for mental health, no matter your size. 

13. When arguing, don't go for the throat. It may be the quickest way to win an argument in the short term, but it does the most damage long term. 

14. If you're passionate about something, don't be afraid to invest time into it regardless of what others may think. 

15. Don't be afraid to let people leave your life, but always be open to having new people enter it. 

16. Every year comes with new responsibilities. Take advantage of this year's shorter list and do something spontaneous. 

17. Let it go. 

18. Network. You'll continue to hate it, but it will make your life better. 

19. There is not a blueprint for life. Make your own timeline. 

20. Be kind to your siblings. You never know when you'll need them. 

21. The world doesn't revolve around you. People don't care what you're doing as much as you think they do. 

22. Decide your own truths. 

23. Preventative medicine is the best medicine. 

24. Pictures are not real life. 

25. Each day is an opportunity to be the person you want to be.
