25 Lessons in 25 Years

February 10, 2019

These are not in any particular order, just 25 things I have learnt 🙂

  1. Stop looking at what you don’t have and be thankful for what you do have, it could have been a lot worse!
  2. Even those closest to you will hurt you, upset you and disappoint you but just because they’re blood it doesn’t mean they’re any less human – we all make mistakes.
  3. Going gym will release all your negative energy and make you feel like you have your life put together when you really haven’t.
  4. Don’t depend on anyone but yourself.
  5. Only you can find your own happiness, no one will make you happy like you make yourself.
  6. Islam and God will save you so many times.
  7. There will always be someone that looks better then you, someone more successful then you, someone that has more than you….just remember it’s not a competition!
  8. Social media is the most deceiving depiction of someones life. 
  9. Materialistic things will only give you short term happiness. 
  10. Positive thoughts and hope and trust in God will get you by.
  11. Everything that has happened in your life so far whether good or bad was meant to happen, it was already written. So no point of living with regrets! 
  12. Being shy and awkward will make you miss out on big opportunities, socialise more and life will get more exciting.
  13. Surrounding yourself with the best company is crucial. Choose those who remind you of God, who will always have your back, will make you laugh when you’re down, who will keep you in their duas, who will want the best for you, who will humble you and will always go above and beyond for you.
  14. Your dream husband is not just going to magically appear in your life  -_-
  15. Don’t settle for less, you deserve the best.
  16. Your life will never be what you planned it out to be.
  17. Your hardships will be your biggest blessings!
  18. Not all men are trash, there’s just a lack of real MEN.
  19. Grow thick skin, people can be very mean and heartless.
  20. Nothing will ever come easy.
  21. Not everyone will like you.
  22. Don’t overthink, it won’t do anything but waste your time.
  23. Travelling is the best stress relief.
  24. Always trust your gut feeling.
