On this day 28 years ago…

I was born at 17:25pm, Thursday 4 October 1990.

Today, a reflection on the things I’ve learned and so, to whoever is reading this, I truly hope this finds you well. If I had this list with me as a young child or through my teenage years, I know it would’ve inspired me somehow.

  • Do not personalise everything. Thinking things that happen as if everything and everyone is out to make my life worse is not true.
  • There are plenty of A-holes out there. Choose to be mature and not acknowledge your dislike for them.
  • Others’ problems with me are not my problems.
  • Create healthy boundaries. Whether it be with your husband, in-laws, family, friends or colleagues.
  • Before you get angry, ask yourself how you could have made this situation worse than it should have been.
  • I am not my past.
  • I can’t do it all in life. Having goals is great, sometimes things are just not meant to be.
  • But, I am capable of anything. We need to at least start something, somewhere to open the doors of possibilities. The Universe will do the rest.
  • Our passions guide us. Let them motivate us.
  • I am loved.
  • I am wanted.
  • Life is way too short.
  • I am perfectly fine at whichever point I’m in life right now. If you are wanting to end it all however, this is not okay and you can be okay with help.
  • Forgiving myself is the first step.
  • I am the creator of my one and only life.
  • I control my mind, it does not control me.
  • Practicing self-care each day will make me more mindful.
  • Do not be afraid.
