Me, being in my late 20’s now, I realized how amazing life gets when you’re in your 20’s and how difficult it can be. I put up 20 things I’ve learnt in my 20’s, even though I think I could do way more. So here we go:
- You get along and make friends off all ages. Even though you’re not a kid anymore, but you get along pretty well with the 15-18 year old and also with the ones older than you, just because you have so much to learn from them and you feel like you understand them better now.
- You can have sweets for breakfast, which was definitely not allowed when you were a kid.
- You have to work out to keep in shape.
- You can’t eat as much as you want anymore and not worry about the kilograms that you may add.
- Even though the music nowadays is amazing, before it was so much better.
- You’re not going to see your friends regularly, but when you see them it will feel like nothing changed and you still can talk for hours catching up.
- Life is shorter than you think. Looking back now you realize that all you had to worry back then was passing the exams or your crush not liking you. Now you realize that life is a lot shorter and you try to live it at it’s best, cherishing every single moment with your friends, family or even yourself.
- Going to bed early is so exiting. Who wants to go to bed late? You realize that getting more sleep is awesome and when you wake up is the morning after a good rest you look great, you feel great and life seems better in general.
- Everything is expensive. When you live with your parents you don’t have to worry about paying bills or buying food. When you grow older and get a job you’re not so much into spending your own money.
- It’s OK to be who you are and where you are. It’s OK not to know where you’re going or what you really want to do with your life in the next few years. People in their 40’s sometimes change their views on life and things that they like to do. So, just relax and enjoy your life the way it is now.
- You need to surround yourself with like-minded people, people who understand you, who are hard-working, who inspire you, people you feel comfortable being around.
- You get good at small talk. when you’re younger you don’t really know how to do it, but now talking about whether, past weekend, traffic or just asking ‘how are you?’ is so easy now.
- It’s OK to let people go. Sometimes people who you grew up with or have some common past are not the same people anymore, you are not the same person anymore. You probably have different interests and opinions on life now.
- What you did in school or university will probably not going to translate into your career and you’ll end up doing completely different things from what you’ve learnt throughout the school years.
- The years when you were a student where the time when you had the most fun, meet a lot of new friends and learnt to deal with your problems by yourself.
- Not everyone is going to like you and that is OK. Not everyone is going to be your friend, and you know what, you are not going to like everyone either.
- It’s OK to fail, because failing is a part of that process of becoming who you are and who you’re going to be. Through fail you get to learn from your mistakes.
- Watching news can be useful. This will help you learn more about what is happening in the country or around the world at the moment.
- Traveling is the best way you can spend your money.
- Finding your style is the key to everything. Fashion trends come and go, but you’ll look the best in what you feel and what suits you the best.
