Hey guys! Today I'm gonna be sharing with you some of the life lessons I learnt during my 17 years of existence, so without further ado, let's jump straight into it!

Disclaimer: please keep in mind that this advice might not apply to everybody

♡ Take up a hobby because you will be that person who is way more interesting than someone who doesn't have one
♡ Get to know yourself more, this will help you truly accept yourself
♡ If you really think about it, no one is beautiful. Everyone has their own imperfections (both inside and out) which is honestly what makes them perfect
♡ It's okay to feel hurt. Let it all out, but always remember to get back on your feet when you're done
♡ In this world where true friends are so rare, cherish those friendships that speak to your soul and never let go
♡ Call your mom and dad occasionally and tell them you love them; there is nothing like family
♡ Stay safe and cautious when you're walking outside alone in the dark, you never know what's lurking in the shadows. Remember to listen to your gut when something doesn't feel right
♡ If you don't agree with something, then speak out. We need more change and open-mindedness in this world
♡ Self-love isn't taught in today's education system so make it a priority for yourself
♡ Do everything you can to take care of your health early on. You'll save those regrets when you reach the old age
♡ Kindness is beautiful! You'll never know what wonders kindness can do unless you experience it for yourself
♡ There's a simple rule we should all follow: if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say it. There's a fine line between constructive criticism and just pure hatred
♡ You don't need a man (or woman). Being single is so underrated yet so important. Take that time to work on yourself towards becoming a better person
♡ Start by romanticizing your life. Believe that every sip of tea you're having is magic because it is. Us humans get so caught up in life that we forget to slow down and realize that just the state of being alive is true magic
♡ Change your mantra from 'I can't do this' to 'I can do this' and you will become unstoppable
♡ Take inspiration from everyone around you. There is always someone that's better than you, so take a look at what they're doing differently and put it into practice in your own life
♡ The key to confidence is getting outside your comfort zone. The more you do this, the less you will care what other people think about you
♡ Don't lose hope. There are still good things out there
♡ When you love, love hard. Remember to fall in love with the beautiful things in life
♡ Never lose sight of who you are. You are loved, strong and worthy no matter what anyone else tells you
♡ What matters to you now might not matter to you in the future. Have no regrets
♡ Comparing yourself with somebody else is completely useless because somebody else's beauty or success does not detract yours
♡ It's okay to feel. Your emotions don't make you any weaker or stronger than you already are
♡ The people who aren't nice to you need your love the most, so help them out
♡ Don't judge other people if you don't know everything about them. Sometimes, you think you might know someone when in fact there are things happening in their life that you don't know about
♡ Don't worry about when you will have your first kiss. Your time will come and it will be worth the wait. Make it special
♡ When you make a mistake, apologise. And do it with sincerity. Maybe you'll find someone else to blame but the bravest people always take responsibility for their actions
♡ Karma will always get back at you in its own miraculous ways. No ifs, whats or buts
♡ Let go and trust the universe. The things that happened in your life were meant to be

With love,
~Amy, from my heart x
