24 at 24

I turn twenty-four today. That’s right. I’ve almost reached a quarter of a century basically. And yes I’m feeling kinda old. But honestly, I’ve never felt more mature, more wise, more courageous in my entire life.

And so I thought I’d share with everyone 24 life lessons I have learned–lessons that have helped mould and cultivate my identity as an individual, in my career and personal life. They are also insightful, meaty nuggets that I have learned from the people who matter to me; things that were taught and imparted by the ones I love and have become significant to me. I managed to write them in my own words, and the closest to the way my mind comprehends it.

This post is inspired by the “23 Painfully True Lessons You Learn By Age 23” by Thought Catalog. All the original photos I’ve used are from HD Wallpapers.

Redirecting your thoughts

When you see things that you are not wanting in your experience, do not talk about them, don’t write about them, don’t join groups that worry about them, don’t push against them. Do your best to ignore them. Remove your attention from the things that you do not want while you give your undivided attention to the things that you do want. —Esther Hicks

Just something helpful for the cognitive, intellectual and spiritual nourishment. I think it’s really, really good.
