25 Lessons at 25 on Life, Faith, Love, Food etc


It feels so weird writing this but today I turned 25 years of age. In other words, your girl has been living on this plant for 25 years! Like I've crossed a quarter of my life! It's my silver jubilee yall and I couldn't be more excited.

I'm so thankful to God and quite content with where I am in life right now. Sure things didn't quite go as I had planned but God's will is the best always. So today it's all about the 25 things I've learned in my 25 years on this earth.

1. God's way won't always make sense but trust him regardless (Psalm 34:5)
2. Your body will not work for your the same way it did when you were 20.
3. Eat right, flee from fried food and do your workouts
4. Adulthood is hard but you've got this!
5. God's word won't make sense when life is hard but it will eventually.

6. We all have our time to shine so be happy for others when it's their time knowing that yours will come.
7. Sleep more, it's good for you.
8. Good friends are hard to find.
9. God comes through for you when you least expect it.
10. Don't be scared to say no, if anything it makes your life less stressful.

11. In life, sometimes you've got to pick a lane and stick to it but also don't be scared to move to a new lane if it's not working out.
12. Mommy is right (for most things)
13. Having love and being loved is a beautiful thing.
14. The 9-5 life is not so bad if anything you get consistent pay and learn discipline.
15. Your breakthrough, growth is on the other side of your laziness and procrastination.


16. Sometimes a closed door is God's way of leading you to your purpose.
17. Never compromise on your beliefs, values, for a situation or person, never! Nothing and I mean nothing is worth it!
18. God loves us regardless of what we have done and is always ready to forgive us.
19. Passion trumps money always but money is still great too.
20. Your support system can either make or break you. 


21. Money looks better in your bank account and investments.
22. Honesty will always be the best policy but people will hate you for it.
23. Change is good, great even but not always.
24. It's okay to be silly, do stupid stuff and laugh at yourself!
25. A lot goes on behind the scene of a person's growth and success that most people seem not to know or even care about.

So that's 25 things I've learned at 25 years. I could definitely add more but I'll leave it at this. I just wanted to use this occasion to thank you guys for being here and supporting your girl. You are part of the reason why life is sweet. Most importantly, all praise be to God. It has always been my desire that my life will be an instrument to showcase his glory and I'm so thankful for all he's done and is still doing in my life.

I'm honestly so excited for this new year, I've got a good feeling about this one. It's even more exciting that I'm starting it out with no dirty clothes lol, spent all of yesterday getting my laundry done.

As for these pictures, I usually don't bother doing shoots for my birthday seeing as I'm always taking pictures, but given the milestone that this birthday is, I thought it appropriate to do something different. And Jimishoots was cool enough to shoot me, simply because he has several family members who have birthdays in September. So thank you Jimi. These photos are amazing!

Over to you, how old are you? What life lessons have you learned so far? Happy Birthday to all my September babies!

Till next time guys!
