What I wish you learn by your late 20's

I wrote this for hello amigas,

What I wish you learn by your late 20's.

You love yourself overall, most days. You will have days in your life when you feel like a sack of potatoes. ( that's okay ). #BounceBack 

A man doesn't determine your self worth. No excuses. I refuse to let you walk into your 30's with that in your mind. This will be one of the greatest successes of your 20's. If you know and believe this you're a step ahead. #Iaintsorry 

We don't need to go out every night to live life. Life is moments, not necessarily lived only late at night. Sometimes you want to sleep early and wake up early for a beautiful hike. Your life can be poppin with some sneakers on too. #NetflixandPostmates #turnup

You don't have to be everyone's friend WOO HOOO!! You also don't have to be any one's enemy. #checkyourself  By your late 20's you know who you like to be around or not. No time for friendemies 🙄 I mean I barely have time to hang out with the people I love to waste any energy on anyone else. If you don't talk to someone you used to have a friendship with it doesn't mean you hate them either. Life takes different paths plain and simple. 

Live more than you post on social media. By this time you've figured out we post the highlights  mostly. #weonlymakingthehighlights  😎 you don't need to post everything you do. Some moments are for yourself and that's okay. We don't live just for our digital life. Thankfully we have memories. I take a lot of pictures, I have for years since I could remember. I don't post them all. If you live your life to impress others you're not living for yourself. 

Your Family Friends and Significant other are equally important in your life for balance. #HELLLOOOO #WORLDTOYOU  realize this now before you're left with no friends and your family doesn't care if you're around or not. Guess what?!  relationships end sometimes. Yup shocker, nothing is guaranteed in this beautiful life we live. If you create balance you won't be completely ALONE when one of these 3 fail. Chances are at different times of our life one of these 3 will. Every relationship needs nourishment. Make sure you are there for the ones you love in their darkest moments. Just like you were there when they're celebrating their best. 

Our Family is getting OLDER sometimes we get so busy working on our own thing that we don't stop and realize, grandma and grandpa are starting to walk slower. Mom and Dad are growing more Grey Hair. MAYBE I should call them. MAYBE I should spend some quality time before it's too late. This is the hardest lesson that is often learned too late. I want you to think about it now at least. Call them, FaceTime, send them a letter. I URGE YOU! #STOPANDTHINK 

Last but not least it's okay to fail. Yes it's okay, because failing means you've tried to do something. Failure means you've taken a chance.  By your late 20's realize that your failures are learning lessons. Never stop trying to make your dreams come true. Never be afraid to make a mistake. You will look back and realize what you thought was your greatest failure or heartache was in fact your greatest lesson.
