12 Things I've learned In 12 Years

For those of you who don't know, I am a senior in high school. That means that I have been in school for 12 years. Throughout those 12 years I am pretty sure it is safe to say that I have learned some things along the way.

I graduate in May #classof2018 which means that I will soon be turning the page to my next chapter of life. I am excited but nervous to say the least.

Growing up and going through school can teach you a lot of things especially at that age. The ages of 5-18 is prime growing time for a person.

With that being said, I am going to share 12 things that I have learned from these past 12 years.

  1. Change is inevitable.
  2. The lows in life don't need to trump the highs.
  3. Putting others before ourselves is really the only way to live.
  4. God is not going to change even when things around us do.
  5. We should embrace the small things not just the big.
  6. When things don't go as planned it is not the end of the world.
  7. Not everyone is on the same page as you and that's ok.
  8. Comparison is the enemy's poison.
  9. You shouldn't cover up your God-given talents and abilities but instead use them the way He wants.
  10. Wanting to improve yourself is not a bad thing. It just means you have the intuition and diligence to do so.
  11. Joy and kindness can go a long way.
  12. Regularly talking to God and reading His Word is the best decision to make.

How have you grown within the past 12 years? Have you learned anything along the way?

It was really hard to narrow it down to 12 things because there have been so many things that I have learned and I continue to learn new things on a daily basis. I am very thankful for the people that have helped me grow and taught me things along the way. I know that I have a lot more learning to do and I know that within the next 12 years this list will be growing every day. ♥
