21 Things I've Learned In 21 Years

So, today I turn 21 which is absolutely crazy. The past year has felt like so many more because I have learned so much about myself. And I have changed so so much and I am so grateful for it. Last year I had trouble writing 20 things but this year I had absolutely no trouble writing 21 things. I think that alone just tells how much I have actually learned. If you want to learn 20 things I've leaned in 20 years then just click right here. But let's stop talking and start getting into what I have learned. And then I'll eat some birthday cake.

1. I have leaned that I will never just put in half an effort in anything I do. It is all or it is nothing for me. But also that it is okay to sometimes not give 100 % of yourself everywhere, all the time. I need to protect myself. 

2. I have leaned that I love to walk and listen to birds sing, wind fly and my feet walking on the ground. It is absolutely amazing to just walk in silence. 

3. I have leaned that the name I have has such an impact on me. And therefore I have also decided to change it. I have actually already changed it. More on that to come... 

4. I have leaned that I should never let the fear of not being perfect, of not doing something good enough, stop me from trying to do what I want to do. 

5. I have leaned that I don't want to wear makeup. I don't really care about it and I absolutely love being makeup free everyday, all day. More about that here.

6. I have leaned that the sound of birds singing is one of the most amazing sounds in the world. Wake up a little earlier, go for a walk and listen to the birds sing. It is amazing!

7. I have leaned that plants in a room make the room feel so much better. 

8. I have leaned that I can actually take care of plants, haha. 

9. I have leaned that mercury retrograde really fucks with my head. Whenever mercury is in retrograde I need to slow down, take it easy and take one thing at a time.

10. I have leaned that I love to write and that it makes me happy when I write. I love other people reading what I write even thought it is also kind of terrifying.

11. I have leaned that I am able to heal. Both my body but also my mind. All I have to do is be willing to heal and then do what feels natural to me. Follow my intuition. 

12. I have leaned that I am able to decide what thoughts I want to have and what vibe I want to have. I am in charge of my own head and how I want to feel and think.

13. I have leaned that I can do what I set my mind to do. Some things just takes more time than others. 

14. I have leaned that I change and there is really not much I can do about it. What I like changes. How I feel changes. What I like to read changes. What I like to wear changes. Basically everything changes. And that's totally okay. 

15. I have leaned that talking about feelings and thoughts I struggle with is the absolute best way for me instead of holding it in and letting it build and grow into something toxic. 

16. I have leaned that I love thrift shopping which is not a secret to anyone, haha. I love having a thrifted closet and I love having a room full of thrifted items.

17. I have leaned that the only thing I am is consciousness. 

18. I have leaned that dancing to music I love is so healing. 

19. I have leaned to listen to myself and to trust myself. 

20. I have learned that I don't have to be afraid of the future, afraid of everything unknown. And that the past doesn't define me and that I am able to let go of it. 

21. I have learned to embrace who I am. 

What have you learned the past year?
