Twenty-Nine Lessons I’ve Learned in Twenty-Nine Years.

This week I had my twenty-ninth birthday. I’ve spent a lot of time with my good friends, both old and new; it’s actually been one of the best birthdays of my life. If I’ve spent time with you this week, thank you! I’ve had a lovely time.

I decided to write a blog about some of the many lessons I’ve learned in life. I do hope you enjoy it.

1 – God is good.

2 – It doesn’t always feel like God is good.

3 – Your parents have more influence than you think.

4 – If you’re in a relationship that has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it at all.

5 – There’s more to enjoying your job than the money you make.

6 – Always tell the truth.

7 – There’s a different between being right and being wise.

8 – People who aren’t Christians have good lives. I mean morally good as well as materially blessed.

9 – Old friends are not necessarily the best friends.

10 – Old friends are fabulous.

11 – You don’t always get what you want.

12 – Your trust is the best thing you can give to someone.

13 – God is faithful.

14 – God knows what we want and need better than we do.

15 – Good skin is important. Cleanse, tone and moisturise twice a day.

16 – If your life doesn’t work out according to your plan, things will probably turn out better.

17 – Emotionally brave men are hotter than physically strong ones.

18 – Although wise men are hotter. Much hotter. (not the wise men, and not smart men)

19 – You can’t buy a skill; it takes hard work. I know a lot of people with expensive cameras and masses of mediocre photographs.

20 – Good friends are the family that you choose for yourself. Choose wisely, they’re sometimes more difficult to disown than actual family.

21 – You are more influenced and affected by other people than you will ever realise.

22 – ‘Everything is worth trying at least once’ is not a good proverb. I’m not talking about eating frogs legs or snails, or even bungee jumping (although, I shan’t be trying that one). I’m talking about recreation heroin use, or extra marital affairs, you know, stuff like that!

23 – The more you read the bible the more confusing it gets.

24 – You cannot force someone to learn something.

25 – Knowledge is power.

26 – Usually, the things that will make you most happy are already part of your life.

27 – Kind people are the best kind of people.

28 – It’s okay to be wrong sometimes.

29 – Monkeys are not bears.
