23 Things About Being 23


  1. It’s okay to ask for what you want. Whether it be in your relationship or your job, don’t be afraid to voice out what you really want to do.
  2. Maturity definitely doesn’t come with age.
  3. Appreciate the little things. Appreciate the time you get to spend with your loved ones. Appreciate having time for yourself.
  4. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
  5. Never let your pride make decisions for you.
  6. Don’t let pride ruin valuable relationships.
  7. Always be kind (This one is easier said than done).
  8. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
  9. People will always have something to say about you – no matter how kind you are, no matter what you do.
  10. I’m still not sure what I want to do with my life, but I think that’s okay.
  11. Don’t ever compare yourself to anyone.
  12. One of the greatest things about being an “adult” is having the power over the time you want to spend. Everything is up to you.
  13. It is always a good idea to spend money on books.
  14. People can be mean for no reason.
  15. Being straight forward doesn’t always make you right. It can make you look like a jerk, so be careful.
  16. You will meet people who think they are above every one. These people will try to bring you down, and on most days, they will win.
  17. Part of you wants to travel but there’s a bigger part of you who will want to spend money on clothes (Always ukay. Always.), cellphone cases (Because you can never have too much cat themed phone cases), and stationary.
  18. Don’t be afraid to try something new.
  19. Never stop yearning for knowledge. There’s always something to learn from every experience.
  20. As corny as this might sound, tell the people you love how much you love them.
  21. Try to be more patient. (Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city. –Β Proverbs 16:32)
  22. Everybody has a purpose. Someday you’ll know yours.
  23. Always be thankful for everything.
