25 Things I’ve Learned Before Turning 25



  1. Sometimes the people that start with you, won’t finish with you. Everyone has their own road to travel and sometimes you have to let people go in order for you to grow.
  2. Learn how to accept situations for what they are and not for what you want them to be.
  3. Never compare your Journey to someone else’s. Just because things look like gravy and mash potatoes on the outside doesn’t mean that it is. You don’t know how many nights someone may have stayed up working, crying and praying to get to where they are today.
  4. Trust the process, God has you right where you should be at the time you’re suppose to be there.
  5. Timing is everything! Never rush, life is not a race. Eliminate the invisible time clock.stylefinest-co-2
  6. Don’t fall into another’s person’s shadow, its alright to admire someone but remain true to yourself. “You were born an original don’t die a copy.”
  7. Don’t ask for anyone’s permission to be great, like Nike says… “Just Do It.” Once you have your goals in mind, pursue them. No need to wait for someone else to validate you.
  8. Speak your mind and stand firmly on your beliefs.
  9. Create your own type of beautiful. Don’t let society’s standards limit your creativity and your definition of beauty.
  10. Be confident in your ability and own it! Know exactly what it is that you bring to the table.
  11. Not everything will go as planned. However, that doesn’t mean that you should give up. It means that God has something way better in store for you.
  12. A “not right now” is not a definite no! It just simply means not right now.
  13. Patience; everything happens when it’s suppose to happen. Be patient.
  14. Continue to grind even when it seems that no one is paying attention. You must forever keep up the hustle and grind.ncp_0138
  15. It’s okay to need people. Needing someone doesn’t make you weak, it makes you human.
  16. Cherish the little things in life. You should always appreciate life’s simple treasures for those are the ones that matter the most and will get you through the hard times.
  17. Expect something amazing at all times! Even when it seems that the odds are against you, keep your head up and push through. Life has a crazy way of working things out.
  18. Positive vibes only! Stay clear of any negativity; it’s unhealthy.
  19. Smile more, try to find the bright side to the situation.
  20. Be kind, because when you put good things out into the universe; good things will come back to you.
  21. Know your worth, value yourself. Never let anyone take advantage of you.
  22. You are enough! There is no reason to change yourself for someone else. If you aren’t changing for the betterment of yourself; then trust me, you are enough. God has already equipped you with the right amount of personality and style.
  23. Stop trying to figure people out! It is not your job to justify people’s actions when things don’t work out the way you hoped they would.
  24. You can’t choose your relatives but you can choose your family. Blood doesn’t make you family, the love and bond that you share does.
  25. Live life unapologetic!! Don’t apologize for living your life the way you want to live it. At  the end of the day I can sum up life in three words; it goes on.
