Advice I wish Listened to...

9:44:00 PM


Hey lovelies!!

If you've ever been on my blog, you know I'm a MASSIVE fan of reflection. I'm also a MASSIVE fan of lists. So of course, I had compile a list of what I wished I listened to.

  1. Stop stressing the small stuff.
  2. Some people peak at high school, don't be one of them.
  3. Take care of yourself.
  4. Sadness doesn't stick.
  5. If a "friend" keeps saying mean things about you or to you, even if that's how they were raised and they don't know better, drop them. It's so much better for you.
  6. You can't please everyone.
  7. Stop hiding your passions.
  8. Don't quit a goal because someone says you can't do it.
  9. Stop idolizing people who haven't done anything.
  10. Pretty is great but it doesn't sustain you.
  11. (With the above in mind), Stop hating on other girls because they're "prettier than you."
  12. Skip the soda and colored drinks, future you will thank you within two weeks.
  13. Stop focusing on the future and ignoring the now.
  14. Don't lock yourself in your room because you don't think you're not good enough for other people to see you or experience the kind of person you are.
  15. You can be insecure and confident. don't try and fix every insecurity.
  16. Your work ethic is key, stop trying to do things perfectly and explore all your options.
  17. Listen to people.
  18. Give out random complements, make someones day.
  19. Stop thinking the world is the area you reside. 
  20. (With that in mind), STOP LIVING IN THE CLOUDS THINKING SOMEWHERE ELSE IS BETTER BECAUSE IT'S ANYWHERE BUT HERE. You are surrounded by so much beauty and culture. It took you way too long to learn this.
  21. You are more than the people around you, that's okay. There is a reason for that.
  22. Get excited about small things, even if no one else cares. If it makes you happy, scream it out to the world at the top of your lungs.
  23. Reading is great, in fact you owe so much of your knowledge to things you read for fun. But, don't try and hide in books. Go out and make your life a story.
  24. Oh hey, you're not cool? Well good for you, you don't need that.
  25. Stop being so afraid of embarrassing yourself. No one actually cares what you're doing, they're all too busy thinking you're judging them.
  26. It's okay to excel at things, don't be ashamed of showing people up.
  27. The boy who was out of your friend group growing up, he wasn't trying to tease you or make you feel bad. He was trying to make you smile. Don't be hard on him. He's nothing like his friends.
  28. Can't sing? Sing anyways. Can't dance? Dance. (It will take you years and one amazing best friend to teach you that lesson.)
  29. If you think someones cute, tell them. You're not going to make things weird, stop thinking that.
  30. Don't idolize people, idolize the person you want to be, and change it often.

  1. I like how you said to stop being afraid of embarrassing yourself, I used to be (and still sometimes am) way too concerned with what other people think of whatever it is I'm doing. Crazy because in the end who really cares what other people think!

  2. ha! this is pretty amazing! Especially the part about idealizing people who have not done anything. So many girls look at so called celebs for inspiration, when really they should be looking at world leaders!

  5. 'Stop hiding your passions' is such a brilliant piece of life advice. It took me a while to figure out that the things we find quirky and/or unusual about ourselves are usually the unique things that will path the way to creating a life we both enjoy and are proud of! This was a really great idea for a blog post, by the way :)

  7. These are all great but #8 speaks to me the most <3 it's hard to not listen to the negative people but learning to let those comments fly over your head helps get through it.

  8. This is a great list! My father used to always tell me #25 - don't be afraid, no one cares about what your doing they're all thinking about what they're doing. Great post!
