Lifestyle Mark My Words

Thank U, Next

Twenty things I learnt/was reminded of in 2018

1. Happiness is NOW. Not worrying about the past or the future; it is living in the moment and enjoying every bit of it. 
2. Being single is GREAT. Being with someone you love is GREAT. To be happy either way, you better love the shit out of yourself first. 
3. There is life outside of rodeo and barrel racing. Crazy, I know.
4. What you put out to the world is what you will attract. You manifest your life all day long.
5. If you feel like the world is crashing around you, write a list of things you’re grateful for. Ask your friends what they’re grateful for, or what they’re excited about. 
6. If you don’t ask, or take the chance, you will never know. 
7. Money isn’t everything. Time is. Though a job you love that pays you is wonderful 
8. Friends come and go. People you think would be around forever can drop in a heartbeat. Thats okay. It means you’re growing, and thats what you want to do. Grow. You are who you hang around; specifically the five people you spend the most time with 
9. Push your damn self. But also surround yourself with people who will push you too.
10. Karma is real.
11. Promoting what you LOVE instead of bashing what you HATE is so much more satisfying.
12. If you think you sound great singing at 1am around the campfire, check your Snapchat in the morning when you’ve sobered up..
13. Learn from those you look up to. They might love to take you under their wing and teach you.
14. Say yes to adventures.
15. Talk less. Listen more. People need to be heard, and we often forget to just listen.
16. There is such thing as laughing so hard you puke
17. Laughter really is the best medicine; for break ups, for a bad day, for everything. 
18. Always tell people you care about that you love them and enjoy every moment spent with them.
19. You deserve the world. Dont settle for less. Everyone has flaws, so find someone with flaws you can handle
20. Lean on your friends when in need, and you can get through anything
