Hi lovely hearters.

First of all, sorry for the swearing in the title (well kinda) and happy thursday! It's already November and I can't believe how fast everything is going. It only seems last week that I started school again while it's Almost 2 months ago!

I have a question: Do you also sometimes wonder why you're here on this earth? Why you're here and what your purpose is in life? I sometimes do. Everything is going so fast and it sometimes feels like you need to hurry to get all your tasks done by the end of the day while you have this whole life in front of you. Just... waiting. I'm 18 and I don't even have my drivers liscence yet. I'm 18 and I actually need to save money instead of buying all these things. I sometimes say to myself that I need to get my things together and start to grow up. But is this really what I need to do?

A lot of people think they need to change and get a better life but is this really something we need to do overnight? Sure, we all need to grow up but everyone grows up in their own way. Some grow up later in their life, some are already grown ups when they're 16 or something. I don't want to encourage you to get out of your bed and start being this grown up woman/man. But I do have some tips to feel more ready when the time is there.
Enjoy

➳ START JOURNALING YOUR DAYS

Buy yourself a beautiful notebook or take one if you already have one and start to write things down so you have this overview on your life. This way you can get to know yourself even more and work on your self love.
Here are some things you can write about:

  • things you're grateful for
  • your favorite things
  • things that make you happy
  • your favorite memories
  • your favorite motivational and inspirational quotes
  • how your day went
  • a mood tracker
  • just thoughts that go through your head
  • a dream you had last night

➳ SOCIALIZE

Start making new friends or talk to someone you haven't seen for years. It's good to stay in contact with people so you build up connections. Trust me, you're going to need this in the future when you need help or advice for something.

Note: don't be shy and be kind. People love it when someone tries their best to talk to you. But remember: don't stay with the toxic people. Know the persons you can really trust.
➳ DEVELOP YOUR STRENGHTS

Try to find out what you love. Find a passion and find your strenghts. Maybe there's something you're good at. Maybe you're a talented writer, singer or photographer. This may help you for future decisions.

Note: try to plan some "me-time" once or twice a week and spend some time with yourself. This can be really peaceful and now is the time to do what you love. By spending a lot of time with yourself you're going to discover what your strengths are and what you like and don't like.
➳ FIND SOMETHING THAT INSPIRES YOU

Is it a quote, a person or a song? Find something that inspires you or even motivates you to do the right thing. Maybe there is this person with an amazing job you want to do too. Let this inspires you to work hard every day to achieve this goal!

➳ DO ONE THING THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY EVERYDAY

It can be anything! Just do what makes you happy and do things you love. For example:

  • Buy yourself some flowers
  • Give yourself a compliment
  • Tell the people you love that you're grateful
  • Treat yourself with your favorite meal
  • Compliment a stranger
  • etc....

Growing up doesn't mean you need to have lots of money, a car, your own home and a job. Growing up is glowing up and knowing your self worth and feeling comfortable in your own body. You're a grown up when you know who you really are and who you want to be.
