As my 23rd birthday approaches it has led me to think of some tips that most likely don’t cross our mind by this age but we should definitely start doing or thinking about. So I decided to share a few things that I’ve come up with.
1. Don’t be afraid to ask for help
I know we live in a society where it’s a do everything yourself without help, but you know what sometimes you need help. Regardless if it’s offered or you ask for it don’t be afraid to take it. The little help that you do ask for just might help you out tremendously and go a long way down the line. Don’t be afraid to say I don’t understand and I need a little guidance. If your like me and always use to do everything on your on without any help then I know it can be hard but don’t turn it down. Take it even if you don’t want it, but in the end you won’t regret it at all and you’ll be glad that you took it.
2. Don’t be fooled by social media
Social media runs the world that we live in today. Ever body looks happy and it seems like their life is perfect, you hear about constant accomplishments, latest gossip, etc. Sometimes it might have you thinking that you don’t have your life together and that you need to step up your game a little…nope that’s not how it always goes. That’s just how a lot of people make it seem, everybody has their struggles whether big or small. They might not voice them but don’t that just because you don’t hear about them doesn’t mean there not there. Everybody goes through some form of struggles in their life. I’ve had a few people come up to me and even say it you seems like you really have it all together and then I tell them if you only knew my stress level you would think otherwise haha. So relax , life is life just because something seems perfect on social media doesn’t mean it is. You got this just take it one day at a time.
3. Explore the world
I always stress this and will continue to stress this, get out and explore the world. Regardless of where you go just go somewhere new whether it’s in the state, out the state, or a whole new country go see something you’ve never seen. You can either go by yourself but make sure your safe or you can go with a group of friends, whatever makes you the happiest. Don’t wait until its to late to try to travel because by then you might not have the time or the money to go. Some of you may think I don’t have that much money I only have a little, well take just that little bit and go see something. You don’t have to spend a whole lot of money it can be something simple. It’s the thought that counts and that you took the time out to say okay I’m ready to see this or do that or do this. In the end you’ll have memories and photos to last a life time.
4. Become good with money
My major weakness when it comes to money is books and food. I’m a huge bookworm and I love to eat, but I also have bills to pay. I know my budget on how much I can spend on food and books. Learning how to good and budget your money will help you out greatly in the future. You’ll learn how to save, what to invest your money in, and have good spending habits. I’m not saying you can’t spoil yourself every now and then by all means do. You just have to make sure you know where your money is going and not wind up struggling from paycheck to paycheck
5. Start your own business
I know I know some of you might be thinking what type of business can I start and where in the world is the money coming from to start one. You have a hobby that you really enjoy turn that into a business, you never know where it will take you. Blogging is a hobby of mine but it can also turn into a business either way I love it. No matter how small the business starts out you’ll love the outcomes because its something that your passionate about doing. People might give their opinions good or bad but it will be something that you can say you put your all into.
6. Pray often
So many things are going on in the world today that it makes so many people scared to even turn on the news and see what’s happening. Prayer can keep you sane and give you just enough peace that you need to get through this crazy world. Even if you feel like sometimes it’s not helping just keep doing it anyway, never stop. Everybody knows that if you can’t rely on anybody else that you can always rely on God. He will never let you down no matter what. Continue to keep the faith that you have in him and don’t let it go.
