Trust The Process

And other things I learnt when I was 28

It’s becoming a bit of a tradition to do a post on my birthday about what I learnt the year before, and 28 was huge. It was the most challenging year of my life by far — the biggest shifts, the toughest lessons and the most tears [side note: if you haven’t heard of Saturn Returns, Google it and prepare for your mind to be blown]. It’s crazy to think how radically things can change in 365 days so here it is in list form, what 28 taught me about life;

  1. Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. EVER. This is a big one. We can’t ever fully know anyone but ourselves, and nothing productive ever comes from comparison. Now that I’m staying in my own lane, I’m much happier watching the other more powerful, fancy cars drive past while I enjoy my own journey.
