-25 life lessons from a 25year old named Eli
Always be honest, lying is way more work than it’s worth.
Take lots of pictures! Years down the road you’ll be so glad that you did.
Give 100% in everything you do. Even if you fail, knowing you gave 100% will be a huge reward.
Be kind to everyone you meet, even the haters.
Life is too short to spend it unhappily.
No matter what you do, you’ll always have haters. Don’t let them waste your time.
Be grateful for what you have in your life, friends, family, success, and failures. Share your gratefulness.
If you fail, try, try again.
Step outside of your comfort zone. We often limit ourselves by staying in our comfort zones.
Bad things happen to good people all the time.
It’s not what happens to us that defines us, it’s what we choose to do about it.
Marry your best friend.
Your parents were probably always right all along.
Be humble. You don’t know everything no matter how smart you are. Be open to suggestions, advice, and wisdom from others.
Friends come and go, family is forever.
You will achieve more of your goals if you transfer them from your head to paper.
What goes around comes around. Be sure to put out more good stuff than bad stuff because it will come full circle.
Don’t judge others. You have no idea what they’re going through.
Gossip; Don’t pass it on.
Never frown; you never know who will fall in love with your smile.
Be of good cheer. Even when you’re struggling, stay positive. There is always something good you can find.
Time heals all wounds no matter how deep the cut is at that moment. Unless you refuse to let it by reopening that wound intentionally.
Happiness is a choice. It’s no one’s responsibility to make you happy but your own.
If you never take that first step, you’ll never know where it would have taken you.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger…if you let it. Learn from bad experiences, bad mistakes, bad choices and don’t wallow in your sorrows. Let those experiences make you stronger
