A-Z List Of Life Tips

A-Z List Of Life Tips


Well, the ABC's are used for many things in life. Most importantly, the words we speak are all because of the ABC's. This time, I'm going to use the ABC's to provide a list of life tips that will surely benefit you greatly in your future endeavors.

Appreciate the small things. And the big things.

Buy a dog. Your life will immediately go from subpar to a dream. You have a fuzzy animal that is always happy and will always be your best friend.

Change is growth.

Drink water everyday. If you don't, your future probably isn't going to be too great.

Every day is a new day. Leave yesterday where it is, and take on the new day.

Family first.

God is always with you.

Happiness is multiplied by gratitude. Focus on the things you have, not the things you don't have.

If you lose money, the person who found it probably needed it more.

Just because you're at the mall DOESN'T mean you have to buy something. This lesson was learned when I found no money in my bank account.

Kindness is always needs in this world. Be the one that spreads it.

Live everyday like it's your last day alive. This one's a good one. Make everyday count, because in reality, life is short and there's no point in waiting for a good day to do what you want to do in life.

Make sure you never take the moments with the people you love for granted. You never know what's going to happen.

No cop, no stop. Do we really need to stop at that unnecessary stop sign on that side street no one knows about?

Only one stopping you is yourself.

Pay it forward

Quit worrying about it.

Remember to say "I Love You."

Surround yourself with people that make you laugh. Who else would you want to surround yourself with?

The best things in life are free. Like fresh air, and food samples from the grocery store.

Unless life hands you sugar and water, your lemonade is going to suck.

Vacations should be taken all the time.

Work on yourself before you focus on others.

X - is there even a life tip that starts with X?

You will always be your own best friend.

Zzzzzzz can fix pretty much everything.

To The Girl Who Isn't Graduating On Time, It Won't Feel Any Less Amazing When You Do

Graduating is something to be proud of no matter how long it takes you.


To the girl who isn't graduating college "on time,"

I promise, you will get there eventually, and you will walk across that graduation stage with the biggest smile on your face.

You may have a different journey than the people you grew up with, and that is OKAY. You may have some twists and turns along the way, a few too many major changes, a life change, you may have taken most of a semester off to try to figure your life out, and you're doing the best you can.

Your family and your friends don't think less of you or your accomplishments, they are proud of your determination to get your degree.

They are proud of the woman you are becoming. They don't think of you as a failure or as someone any less awesome than you are. You're getting your degree, you're making moves towards your dreams and the life that you have always wanted, so please stop beating yourself up while you see people graduating college on time and getting a job or buying a car.

Your time will come, you just keep doing what you need to do in order to get on that graduation stage.

Your path is set out for you, and you will get there with time but also with patience. The place you're at right now is where you are supposed to be. You are going to thrive and you are going to be the best version of you when you graduate and start looking for a company that you will be proud to work for. Don't look on social media and feel less than, because at least you're still working towards your degree that you are finally passionate about. You will be prepared. You will be ready once the time comes and you cross the stage, move away, and start your journey in whatever field you're going into.

Don't question yourself, and be confident in your abilities.

With love,

A girl who isn't graduating on time

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
