20 things I’ve learned by 20


Today I am 20 years old. How is that possible? Because I’m not quite sure to be honest. These last few years have gone extremely fast but I am having the time of my life. I have an amazing group of friends, THE most supportive and loving family, an internship that has me jumping out of bed in the morning, and am loving college life in Chicago. Things really couldn’t be going better. I thought today I would share with you some things I have learned in my life so far that I don’t always listen to or follow but are things I find myself going back to time and time again. Here’s to another year full of many more blessings and lessons learned.

1. don’t take everything so seriously

2. create opportunities for yourself

3. you can never be too generous with your kindness

4. invest in people who invest in you

5. quality over quantity, every time

6. deep late night talks with friends are the best kind

7. always tell people you love them

8. you are entirely up to you

9. don’t worry about what people think

10. people change, and that’s okay

11. learn from your mistakes

12. never change yourself for someone else

13. meet as many people as you can and make connections

14. live beyond the “what if” mentality

15. things don’t always go according to plan

16. accept change, and grow from it

17. surround yourself with good, kind people

18. listen to your gut, it’s rarely wrong

19. people who want you in their lives will find a way to be in yours

20. be the person who wakes up with purpose and intent and put yourself at the top of your to-do list every single day

Have a good Sunday! XOXO Anna
