23 Lessons I’ve Learned by 23

IMG_2086I have been 23 for a week now.

Life has provided me with the opportunity to learn valuable lessons that I continue to use to grow and move forward in life.

For me, my birthday symbolizes a new year of triumphs, trials & failures. It was a major growth year as I made the decision to spend age 22 for ME. This “me year” included making decisions for myself, focusing on my own happiness, improving my self-love, and above all teaching myself that being single does not mean that you are alone.

At the ripe age of 23 I often heard the phrase “you’re so young” in reference to conversations that I would exchange with others about relationships, jobs, school, and other various important topics among society these days.

I may be considered “young” to some but, I do believe that I have been through my fair share of experiences to have learned a few valuable lessons. 

So here they are…
