20 things I’ve learned in my 20 years

I wrote this list back in December when I turned 20, so I thought now was a good time to share it.

  1. Cherish the time you have with loved ones because you don’t know how long you will have with them
  2. Friends are great but family is so much better! They are stuck with you forever
  3. Choose joy! Find joy in the small things
  4. Things will get better even when you feel like you’ve hit rock bottom
  5. Smile as much as you can! A smile can brighten so many people’s day
  6. Jesus is so much better than anything
  7. Find something you are passionate about and stick to it
  8. Grades do NOT define you
  9. Be careful with your words, you don’t know how much one word/phrase could affect a person
  10. Look for the beauty of God in everything
  11. Find friends who truly understand and love you for you
  12. NOBODY can fulfil you the way God does
  13. Turn to God when things are hard
  14. Serving others is so humbling
  15. Always stand up for what you believe in
  16. Do not let friends, boys, status, things etc. define you
  17. God’s grace is so hard to understand but the most amazing gift I have ever received
  18. Don’t take your salvation for granted
  19. Always tell your parents you love them, because even though they may annoy you they are some of the most important people in your life
  20. Do it for the mems!!
