It’s currently 11:08pm May the 13th, as I type this..In about 40 minutes, I will be turning 22. No , I never thought I’d be sitting down blogging right before my birthday, but earlier this morning I wrote this in my diary and I thought I’d share the 21 reasons I loved being 21 =]
1: I got to grow, not only as a person, although I got to explore different ideas, theories and thoughts
2: For my 21st I saved my own money and travelled to New York, LA and Vegas with my mummy and best friend
3: I lost a few friends, although I gained a few more
4: I was taught to appreciate the smaller things in life, to enjoy the seconds in between
5: In a few weeks time, I will be graduating from University, in my BA in Media
6: To follow up on Number 5…I fell in love with University…<– Blew my mind away too
7: Each day I grow closer to those I love, to those who surround me.
8: I have become wiser in the sense, that I know working hard…Will get you places
9: I have engraved in my soul, to keep on Smiling, no matter what life throws at you…You can do
10: I was sent to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, front row…To Blog, write and Review
11: YouTube allowed me to learn and appreciate the places all over the world and to meet amazing people; I would never have met if it wasn’t for my channel
12: Being 21 has allowed me to grow up, although still have the feelings of an inner child at times
13: I loved the fact that I grew closer to my sister
14: It still seems crazy…that I not only met Zayn and Harry, but I spent a few hours with them dancing and speaking
15: I love the fact that I want to continue on with studying and get my Masters
16: I have learnt to love the changes made in life, some deliberately and some surprisingly
17: I have continued to pray…Daily
18: My faith and trust in God has remained strong…If not, stronger
19: I have learnt that life is given to us, as a blank canvas…It is what you make of it..And that NOTHING is impossible.
20: I have become stronger and wiser
21: I will continue to stay positive, focused..To Smile and to Love.
Adore you all from the bottom of my heart
Love Lilian x
I believe pursuing your dreams & doing what you love with every inch of your body. Some people think they choose their dreams, however your dreams choose you. So never let them die, instead give them life!
