20 Life Lessons I’ve learnt in 20 years


I guess the title says it all. Yes, I just turned another page of my life and welcomed my 20th chapter having a blast.

I know I broke a promise when I said that I was gonna post more often on my blog because I don’t really know the reason why it didn’t happen. But one thing is for sure, I was just a typical teen who wasn’t really sure what she wanted to do with her life, but boy, I still have the same goals.

The photo was taken last June here in the Philippines, and yes, I moved back to the Philippines to finish my degree or perhaps I just wanted to prove something to myself.

I learnt a lot of things in my 20 years of existence, and I just want to share my 20 life lessons with you.

  1. It’s okay not to be perfect. Because no one will ever be.
  2. Don’t let other people get the best of you.
  3. Pursue your dreams, no matter how long it will take you.
  4. Do things that you’re really passionate about.
  5. Quality over quantity. We’re in a generation where quantity matters instead of quality, but trust me, if you find yourself in a toxic friendship, it’s okay to leave.
  6. Not everyone thinks the same way you think.
  7. If the opportunity doesn’t exist, create it.
  8. It begins and ends in your mind, what you give power to, has power over you.
  9. If it scares you, it’s worth it.
  10. Certain things will never go back to how they used to be.
  11. Know exactly what you want, and don’t stop until you get it.
  12. Never ruin a good day by thinking about a bad yesterday.
  13. You can’t win the game if you choose not to play.
  14. Lower your standards for no one.
  15. It’s okay to be a little selfish.
  16. Fuck what other people think.
  17. Forget how much it hurts and try it again.
  18. Always surround yourself with those who have the same mindset as you.
  19. You can’t please everyone, so don’t try to.
  20. Move on, find yourself, explore yourself. Life goes on.

Good things come to those who patiently wait, but bigger things come to those who work for it too :*

If ever you’re going through something, I just want you to know that you’re loved despite your imperfections.

If you read until here, I just wanna thank you for reading.


’til my next blog post!
