20 Lessons In 20 Years - Honestly Hannah

20 Lessons In 20 Years


Happy Friday everyone! This Friday is a special one for me though, since it's my 20th birthday! It may sound a little cliché, but how am I 20?! As I say goodbye to my teenage years, I wanted to share with you guys a few things I've learned over the years. I hope you enjoy! :)

1. Try not to care what others think of you. If something makes you happy, the opinions of others shouldn't matter.

2. Find friends that make you happy and make you laugh. Positive friendships are amazing.

3. Don't be afraid to do things that scare you.

4. Hard work WILL pay off.

5. Be with someone who brings out the best in you, and you bring out the best in them.

6. Find hobbies that make you happy.

7. Confidence looks good on everyone.

8. Your family has always wanted the best for you.

9. Try to eat healthy, but don't deprive yourself of the things you love. (i.e. mac n' cheese)

10. A bad day doesn't mean a bad life.

11. College goes (is going) way, way, way too fast.

12. Don't pretend to be someone you're not just to please others. People who really care about you will love you for you!

13. Caffeine is your best friend..

14. Take every opportunity that you can.

15. Be curious. Learn as much as your can about as many different things as you can.

16. Kill em' with kindness. There are so many bitter people in this world who just need someone to be nice to them.

17. Always keep your resume up to date, because you never know when you're going to need it. (Of course I had to throw a little student wisdom in there)

18. Take care of yourself. 

19. Find ways to relieve stress. Worrying about things that you cannot change takes up way too much space. 

20. ALWAYS be grateful. Thank God everyday for all the things that you've been blessed with.

I wanted to add that I'm so grateful for all the opportunities that blogging has brought me so far, and I'm so grateful for everyone who reads my blog! 19 was a great year, but 20 is going to be even better!


  1. I love these kinds of posts! All the best for your 20s, Hannah :)
