Things I've learnt in my 20's

So today I turn 24 and I couldn't be happier about it, I'm one of those people who doesn't like being an uneven age. I thought it would be interesting to really look back through the past three years and see how much I've learnt not only about myself but some pretty important life lessons that I'm sure we all go through at some point. I by no means think I'm wise at all by writing this post either believe me I'm still pretty naive in a lot of aspects but who isn't?

  • Doing what you want in your work instead of what you think you should be doing will become what your most proud of.
