Turning 23

Last week I turned 23, and to be honest I was not all that excited about it. I know, I know, it is just a number, but I took this birthday hard. There is really nothing special to look forward too once you hit 21, but my friends and family made sure that I had a happy birthday!


The day after my birthday, I began to think about everything I have learned so far since turning 23. After thinking for a little while, I came up with 23 things I have learned so far in life that have gotten me to where I am today.

23 Life Lessons That Have Made Me Who I Am Today:

  1. Don’t be so quick to judge
  2. It is okay to make mistakes
