25 Lessons

I know that twenty-five years isn’t a long time in the grand scheme of things, but I’ve always loved celebrating milestone moments. I’m so thankful for everything that I’ve learned and experienced in these past years; I know that I wouldn’t be the person I am today without everything that happened in them. Here’s to many more years of learning, failing, growing, and choosing to follow the Lord above all else!

  1. Life is better when you treat it like an adventure
  2. Chocolate fixes everything…even if you’re lactose intolerant
  3. Waiting for the time to be right is just an excuse for staying in your comfort zone
  4. Stepping out in faith sometimes means faithfully waiting
  5. The Lord moves in mysterious ways, but we don’t need to…put your signal light on
  6. Being worried about what others will think of you is the quickest way to shut yourself down
  7. Not everyone will like you, and that’s okay
  8. You won’t like everyone, and that’s okay too
  9. Pets really do make life more interesting
  10. Don’t apologize for the things that you like. Own that weirdness
  11. God’s timing is very different from our own, but it’s always perfect
  12. It’s okay to escape reality from time to time so long as you always remember your way home

  18. Don’t be afraid of how the Lord made you. He didn’t mess up, and He isn’t done yet
  19. Contentment is not the same thing as complacency
  20. If you find an author you like, it’s okay to buy all of the books they’ve ever written. It shows that you aren’t scared of commitment

  23. Don’t be afraid to ask for help; it doesn’t mean that you’re weak
