Little Life Lessons and Facts



  • Good sleep and lots of water are necessary for feeling good. The less sleep you get and the thirstier you are, the worse you will feel.
  • When in a bad mood, take a bite of something chocolate. You will feel better instantly, guaranteed.
  • There is nothing wrong with heading immediately and only to the sales rack when clothes shopping. But you don’t have to buy everything just because it’s cheap.
  • It’s important to think through your decisions, but it’s also just as important to forget your brain for a little and focus on your heart.
  • The wise words of my friend Dana (via some other clichés): “You only live once, and you can’t take it with you.” She said this not long after I bought my DSLR and was feeling a little guilty for spending the money. But that money won’t be with me when I’m gone. I don’t suggest using these words to justify every penny spent, but I’m so glad I used it for this passion purchase, something that has brought a little color into my life.
  • Losing friends over the course of time sucks, but the good ones are those who stay despite all of that. Be thankful for them instead of spiteful for those who have left.
  • There is nothing more important than the present. It’s literally all you have, because the previous and future moments are not in your control. Live in the now and take things as they come.
  • When you’re sick, stay home. You’ll get better faster and you won’t have to hear people bitch about you getting them sick.
  • Listening to music in the morning on the way to work will make the dreaded arrival a bit easier to bear.
  • There’s nothing wrong with having a free, plan-less day/weekend/week. You will be thankful for it/miss it/wish you had it when your life becomes cluttered with responsibilities.
  • Do not underestimate your powers or allow anything to get in the way of how you feel about what you do. If it makes you happy and it’s not hurting anyone, do it anyway (and no one is perfect anyways and you’re probably better than you even realize and even those “better people” think they aren’t all that great sometimes…).
  • Look around you. Like, really look. The world, while crazy, is beautiful and colorful and breezy and sunshiney and comforting and astounding.
  • Never underestimate the power of getting dolled up. Sure, it may seem superficial. But when you’re having a grumpy day, sometimes all you need to do is throw on a nice outfit or do your hair or put on some bright eyeliner/lipstick and everything can turn around.
  • Heartbreak/ache ends. Eventually. It sucks, but don’t worry about rushing it, or finding something new right now. Going through it will help you grow, change, learn, and prioritize your life.

These are just a bunch of little silly things I’ve learned through my 23 years on this planet. I’m not the best at taking advice, but I’m always trying to tell myself and listen to others to tell me happy ways of looking at life. Let’s face it…this is all we have. So why not make the best?
