Birthday Reflection – 5 things I’ve learnt in my mid-twenties

Happy (belated) Birthday to me! Another year another whole 365 days older.

So this is the time of the year when I get a little nostalgic, a little emotional and do a whole lot of reflection and reminiscing. So to mark my mid-twenties birthday, here’s 5 things that I’ve learnt since last year.

Every time I go on a shopping spree there’s that one session of europhic adrenaline of a shopaholic, but there’s no great memory to look back and be nostalgic about. As hard as it is to resist shopping until dropping, I’d rather be somewhere else in the world making memories and experiencing a different culture!

Just because you don’t see them everyday it doesn’t mean they’re far, even if they’re in a different country! I take a few minutes out of my day and Skype people in different time zones for a chat. You don’t have to worry about conversation because there will be lots to catch up on!

It’s like how the saying goes ‘blood is thicker than water’. Living in the YOLO generation people forget to show how much they love their closest. So spend more time with your parents even if they drive you up the wall!

Find it anyway you can. Get out there and be proactive, experience things you never thought you would even try. Then maybe you might stumble on something you can make money from. I think people graduating now wants a job with flexible hours or to be their own boss, this will come from life experience and a drive to succeed. To be your own boss you need the initiative and risk taking that many successful entrepreneurs have. Leading role not you? Be an amazing supporter! I hate seeing miserable people in jobs they don’t like. Yes, get stuck into the daily grind to earn money to get away, but never get comfortable! If you aren’t doing something new everyday, you’re not learning. And if you’re not learning, you’re not living!

It’s a living essential! Take some time to learn to cook the basic things in life; eggs, rice, pasta, potatoes! This impacts your health directly when you decide on fast food over a healthy homemade meal. You can even save some pennies when you’re able to be more savvy about what you eat. It’s also an attractive quality in all genders!

I had an amazing birthday this year with friends and family in different events and holidays away. If you haven’t seen my Milan trip recently check it out here. Follow me along on my birthday trip away to the Lakes with Kris below.
