20 years filled with memories, 20 years filled with emotions, 20 years filled with several moments of growth worth treasuring. I am 20 (if you havent guessed) and this means- I am officially not a teenager anymore! This year I can say that turning 20 is indeed a big milestone and thus, the beginning of new adventures. However, I'll be remiss if I did not take all I have learned in my 19 years....oops... it's 20 now, so 20 years of adulting. With that being said, Cheers to these 20 life lessons I have learned turning 20.

  1. Be Happy, nothing is worth your tears.
  2. Smile more, it strengthens you regardless of anything you are going through.
  3. Cry a little, do not always hold it in.
  4. Never settle for less than you deserve.
  5. Do not be afraid to stand up for what you believe in. 
  6. Pray more! Sometimes all you need is that quick prayer to God to make things better.
  7. It is okay to stand out, never struggle to fit in. Be content with your individuality.
  8. Love yourself and cherish who you are.
  9. Know who you are and never let a relationship change that. 
  10. Baby girl, KNOW YOUR WORTH.
  11. Never compromise who you are for someone else's comfort. 
  12. Remember that your true friends would love you, for you.
  13. Your dreams might seem impossible until they are done. So keep pushing.
  14. Be thankful.
  15. If someone hurts you once, shame on them...they hurt you twice? shame on you. Remember that. 
  16. Love all your imperfections. 
  17. Do not let the opinions of others consume who you are.
  18. Chase your dreams.
  19. Remove negativity from your life, they'll bring you down. 
  20. Never lose yourself.
