21 LIFE LESSONS

21 LIFE LESSONS

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

when Charles Dickens said this he was probably talking about being 20. Don’t get me wrong, I’m so grateful for all the positive things this past year has brought me. Most of all: a tremendous amount of personal growth emotionally, mentally, spiritually, creatively and in business. But year 20 was really hard. I hit my lowest of lows dozens of times. Yet I got back up. And here I am at year 21, excited for life and ready to embrace each day for what ever it may bring. I don’t fully believe in holidays or ‘new year new me’..but I do believe in milestones, and moving forward with a fresh mindset and the truth is: it’s taken a lot of real work, HARD work, over the past several months to become the person I am today, and i’ve come to terms with the fact that the growth never stops. 21 is a big year in itself (I mean, I no longer have to book a flight for a glass of wine. cheers to that!) But on this birthday in particular I celebrate. I celebrate hard work, hardships, new beginnings.. and I celebrate life. Let this serve as your reminder not to wait for a special day to be your best self and to always do your best to celebrate the present.

That being said, I found it appropriate to share a super cliche yet very accurate list of 21 life lessons i will take with me for years to come.

1. your time is now

2. the answer is always coffee


3. bubble baths are also probably the answer


4. the higher the heel the better you feel

5. shit happens

6. good days are temporary

7. bad days are temporary

8. there is no finish line

9. you are your only validation, regardless of how other people judge you.

10. it’s all probably in your head anyway

11. it’s okay to let others help you

12. you can’t rely on everyone

13. self care is only truly successful from the inside out

14. physical health begins and ends with whats in your head. take care of your mental health first

15. home is whatever/wherever you say it is

16. whatever is written on paper (or in my case, not written) can’t define you

17. your dreams aren’t waiting on you to ‘do it tomorrow’ or ‘finish that thing’

18. risk taking is always rewarded

19. you have to give love - UNCONDITIONALLY- to get love

20. age, weight, clout..whatever it is, a number doesn’t define you

21. I really love wine 

thank you for your kind words today.. here’s some for you. cheers to the next 365. xo 

SINCERELY, ZAHRA
