25 Lessons I’ve Learned in 25 Years

It’s hard to believe that in less than two weeks I will be 25 years old. As a child I always thought being an adult was filled with glitz and glamour…unfortunately thats not exactly true. Moments of adulthood are absolutely glamour filled, but as a whole, not so much. So in honor of my age milestone, here’s 25 things I have learned throughout my journey thus far. Cheers!
