I was just twenty years old a minute ago. Or so it feels like it... Now I'm just days away from turning twenty-NINE. The last of my twenties! I used to think that my twenties was a time to get my life together so that by the time I turned thirty everything would be in it's place. Just as I planned. Funny, right? I've learned so many life lessons throughout the past nine years, specifically, of my life. One that continues to stand out is- Find the beauty in EVERYTHING. It may be difficult in the moment but with time it becomes easier to learn, accept, and even love everything that's become.
Here are 29 lessons I learned throughout my twenties...
