25 Life Lessons As I Turned 25

Jansell Iris SimbulanOla from your Tita! We’re now on the third month of the year (check out my 2018 faith goals and 2017 year-end review) and I do hope everything is going well for you. And as I turned 25 last month, I jotted down some lessons I learned [and words to live by] at this time of my life.

  1. Our beauty, worth and confidence are found in Jesus. No amount of makeup, filter and number of likes can top that.
  2. God has a purpose for every season of your life.
  3. Don’t let social media take full control of you. Life offline is so much better than your feed.
  4. Be the kind of person who loves to share the Word of God than spread gossips.
  5. Budgeting is important.
  6. Being alone doesn’t mean you’re lonely.
  7. You don’t have to show up to every argument. Choose your battles wisely.
  8. There is no better time than now to let go of negative thoughts, toxic friendships and unhealthy habits.
  9. A good night’s sleep is a must.
  10. It’s neither too late nor too early to prioritize saving.
  11. Whatever and whoever caused your past hurts, let go, forgive, look to God and move on gracefully.
  12. A simple act of kindness can brighten someone’s day and even change someone’s life.
  13. Always be grateful.
  14. Pray more, worry less.
  15. Singleness is a gift. Enjoy and maximize this season to the fullest.
  16. Focus more on becoming the right person than finding the right one.
  17. Faith in God also means faith in His timing.
  18. Allow yourself to grow. Travel. Read good books. Learn a new skill. Make new friends.
  19. Don’t chase men. Don’t rush on a relationship. Don’t settle for less than God’s best. Allow Him to take full control of your love life.
  20. A cup of coffee and desserts are always a good idea.
  21. Don’t waste time complaining about today and worrying about tomorrow. Make each day count.
  22. You lose nothing in giving back and tithing. Enjoy it!
  23. To avoid impulse buying, try to sleep on it and wait for a day or two to evaluate if you really need the item or not. Or stay away from the mall at all. Haha!
  24. Embrace your weirdness.
  25. Be yourself. Stop trying hard to be someone you’re not. You’re not someone else’s carbon copy, by the way. You’re amazing just the way you are. 😊
