21 things learned at 21

Today is my birthday, so I thought I’d do one of these lists that make their way around the internet. 21 things learned at 21, here we go.


1/ People who want to be in your life will make an effort

2/ But you need to put in effort too

3/ Go to church when you don’t feel like it – you’ll get something out of it

4/ Get that small job done; it’s not as painful as you think (looking at you, quilt clasps)

5/ God is for you regardless of how much you see Him in a situation

6/ Read the recipe before you start cooking

7/ It’s okay to try something and decide it’s not for you

8/ It’s okay to cry

9/ But let yourself laugh too

10/ Would you rather buy the object or keep the money?

11/ When you see two of your old high school teachers in one day, don’t feel awkward about wearing tracksuit pants; they’re wearing some too

12/ There’s nothing wrong with being early

13/ Write everything on your calendar or you’ll forget about it

14/ God completely understands what you’re going through

15/ I will forever be a morning person no matter how much I want to play Sims at midnight

16/ Writing won’t always be easy

17/ Write anyway

18/ Celebrate the small victories

19/ Don’t pressure yourself to read Wuthering Heights

20/ But you really should get cracking

21/ Look back at where you used to be; you’ve grown more than you realise


Let’s enjoy the last few hours of my birthday with much needed sleep,

Sarah xx
