I was inspired to write this after reading another blogger’s post. Check hers out here!
1 – Hard work pays off. My parents are proof. Forever grateful for the sacrifices they made to give my brother and I the best lives.
2 – Laughing with your friends is the best. It really is.
3 – Never keep secrets. It’s dangerous, it makes you ill and no good will ever come of it. It’s good to talk.
4 – Be kind, always. You don’t know what others have been through or are going through.
5 – Friendship takes work (it doesn’t just happen) but the rewards are so worth it.
6 – McDonald’s breakfast is the only cure for hangovers. Sausage & egg McMuffin, hash brown and those perfect bottles of tropicana.
7 – British people are the only people who know how to make tea properly.
8 – True, forever love does exist. My parents and grandparents are proof of this. 40 & 63 years of marriage respectively.
9 – As does love at first sight.
10 – Red lipstick automatically makes you feel ‘party ready’.
11- Dress size doesn’t matter… Wear what makes you feel amazing.
12 – Curves are good.
13 – Sometimes you just have to accept you are not a tidy person.
14 – Forgive people for their mistakes. We all make them.
15 – You can’t please everyone, so start with yourself and the right people will be happy.
16 – Tequila is never a good idea.
17 – You don’t have to fill silences. It’s taken me a while to learn this but sometimes no words need to be spoken.
18 – Money doesn’t buy happiness. Look at the likes of Peaches Geldof and Amy Winehouse for example.
19 – Your mum is always right.
20 – You can’t find happiness from other people. They help, but it has to begin with you.
21 – Try new things – you never know. I didn’t know I’d love formula 1 until I saw it live. You just never know!
22 – Being on your own is a blessing. It helps you realise number 20 is true.
23 – Home made cakes are the best.
24 – Sometimes you just have to accept that you are bad with money.
25 – It really is the thought that counts.
