Today is my 24th Birthday! OMG My 20’s are going by so effing fast lol. 24 feels like that awkward pre-teen stage of your twenties, when all of your other friends can drive, have later curfews, and can go to R-rated movies without their parents. I swear it seemed like my older cousins had it all together in their 20’s. I guess they were playing the same growing game that I’m smack dead in the middle of now. Instead of moping around complaining about getting older, not having all the answers, and wanting morel; I sat back and reflected on how amazing my 24 years of life have been. We get so caught up on how fast or slow life is moving, that we forget to enjoy the moments and memories we’ve created. The result is beautiful, that’s I’ve created this list of 24 Things I’ve Learned before 24!
Proceed with caution and be prepared…

This is something my daddy always preached to me when I was younger. I heard his words but I didn’t fully comprehend what they meant. I used to reply “but daddy, _____ has this and ______has that”. And his response was always but they’re all human just like me and you. We all have something unique and special that makes us who we are!
This one is something that I’ve learned recently. Sometimes I get so worked up about being right or just stating my very bold and straight forward opinion that I lose sight of the end goal. Sometimes, you just have to swallow your pride and let shit be.
This goes for all things in life from food to clothes and shoes, to people. We live in a society where we crave for more and more, but most often less is best! I rather have 5 real friends than 500 fake ones. #NoNewFriends lol
The “right time” to start a blog, go back to school, move to another city, host an event, etc. doesn’t exist. You just have to take huge leap of faith, pray and follow your gut instinct.
Your dreams are your own, don’t let anyone or anything stop you from going after them.
that is all.
If you’re anything like me you are constantly on the go, have something to do, or always planning for your next move. But we have to slow down and enjoy the journey to greatness.
Literally. The earth is a beautiful place. Looking up into the sky remains me that there’s so much more in the universe than me and my problems.
And that’s normal. People fall apart and pick themselves back up. Don’t expect a happy ending without going through sh*t in the middle.
See #2. She’s the baddest b*tch and she always come back to get you.
‘Tell me one last thing,’ said Harry. ‘Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?’ Dumbledore beamed at him, and his voice sounded loud and strong in Harry’s ears even though the bright mist was descending again, obscuring his figure. ‘Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?’ *Melyssa*
