20 Life Lessons I've Learnt Adulting Into My 40's

I don't feel like an adult but here I am, going a little grey and running into my "cough" "cough"...... 40's.

Looking back I can't say its always been easy but I wouldn't change a thing..... The lessons I've learnt have led me right here and here is where I'm at my happiest.

I hate to say it but the lessons my parents would say to me as a child about growing up and wiser...... well they're true and I'm not that happy about that to be honest (sorry mum).

Realising this though made me think about what others lessons I've learnt in my life. I'm not talking about the stuff we tell ourselves on the daily but the things we learn that suddenly change everything.

Well there's been a couple of these moments and I'd like to share a few with you if that's alright..... So here they are - 20 life lessons I've learnt adulting into my 40's

  • You can be richest and kindest person in the world and some people will still think your a loser. Don't worry about though, you can't please everyone.

  • If you need to be in a relationship, it's probably the exact reason why you shouldn't be in a relationship. I spent so long looking to others for validation but what I realised staying single for 5 years was, was that I was really looking for validation from myself..... I realised that I was enough on my own and when I did chose to be in a relationship it was my free choice and not a demanding need.
