26 Reflections While Being 26

On Sunday I turn 27. A year closer to 30 which terrifies me, probably due to the fact I have so many expectations of myself from what I want to achieve by then. Anyway, a birthday round the corner has got me thinking about things so I thought I would write about 26 reflection on being 26 (in no order)

1. Saving money is important. Not just for the future but for burst tyres, extra special holidays and anything else so your not caught short.
2. You can have a lot of fun surrounded by brilliant people on a night and and not drinking alcohol. SHOCK HORROR.
3. If you do over consume the good stuff, eat something salty before you go to sleep, it kick starts the liver into action which doesn't happen with water alone.
4. Don't drink and drive....ever. Not even 1. Being breathalysed is scary but necessary and best to know that your in the right.
5. Don't stay in a job that doesn't satisfy you at least 3 out of 5 days. The saying is right, love what you do and you will never work a day in your life. I am getting there :)
6. Count to 10 before flying off the handle (I'm not quite there yet)
7. Diet Coke is bad for you FULL STOP! Try and quit it.
8. Slimming world works.
9. Being part of a group is really fulfilling. Gym, Diets, Music, anything, it's just good to be surrounded by like minded people.
10. Treating yourself on payday is always a good idea.
11. Treating other people is even better.
12. Generosity is underrated.
13. It's important to get to the gym, not just for physical health, but more importantly, mental health.
14. You should never be ashamed of your mental health. Depression and anxiety are nothing to be ashamed of so try and find your voice.
15. Being grateful matters.
16. Ask, believe, receive. It works! But it's a process to get to the place where you can think positive 9/10 times.
17. Be there for people, even if you're unsure if they would be there for you.
18. Don't spend time with people your not sure you like.
19. It's better to have few amazing friends than loads of associates.
20. Fresh air and long walks are always a good idea when your confused.
21. Life has a way of working out exactly as it should. So let it!
22. At the same time it's OK to have a plan for what you want your future to look like. It will keep you focused.
23. Life is love, give it to receive it.
24.You'll get over FOMO. If you want to go to bed early do it. You probably aren't missing anything.
25. Nobody cares if you wear a bikini on holiday. They aren't even looking. All that matters is how you feel.
26. Life passes you by too fast (sweat I was 17 yesterday) so MAKE IT COUNT

Oh and LAUGH. Every damn day
