27 Things I’ve Learned So Far in My 27th Year!

  1. Not everyone is your friend. Some people want to see how you do it & some just want a front row seat to watch your struggle.
  2. Not everyone has your best interest at heart, family members included.
  3. No support is BETTER than fake support. 
  4. The reality of not being able to help everybody.
  5. It’s OKAY to be selective with what you want to do and who you spend your time with.
  6. It’s not necessary to react to everything. There’s power in silence and sometimes the best revenge is to let go and literally move on.
  7. God’s timing is always PERFECT. No matter how aggravated I get, I’m not going to rush God. He’s not getting in a hurry for me. He makes His moves whenever He knows I’m ready. So anything I’m waiting for.. I’ve learned to wait well!
  8. The older I get, the more I realize how much arguing, yelling and getting the last word in with people is a complete WASTE of time.
  9. I can’t vibe with people who don’t have the same mindset as me & that’s O K A Y too!! The focus is different because the dream is bigger. I’m working towards the betterment of my future career & financially wise so I can live comfortably later meanwhile you’re worried about becoming popular on social media.
  10. Faith moves are big moves. They aren’t comfortable but they are necessary for the kind of life I keep praying for.
  11. Purpose doesn’t entertain drama.
  12. Being uncomfortable is God’s way of getting your attention. Comfort never grew anyone.
  13. I’ve learned to share my dreams with people who actually want to see me succeed. There are some real dream killers & haters out there.
  14. If you don’t invest you, you’ll soon find that no one else will either!
  15. I’ve learned to just accept and appreciate the process. Whatever I go through, I know God will get me through. The blessing is already ready! Romans 8:28 “All things work together for the good of those who love Him and who are called according to His purpose.”
  16. Being happy is really a personal thing & it really has nothing to do with anyone else.
  17. I’ve learned how to love me more! Self Love is the BEST LOVE. 
  18. It’s so important to be obedient to God. It’s critical to move & speak when He tells you to do so.. you never know who’s breakthrough is attached to your obedience.
  19. When you want different, you move different.
  20. Regardless of what’s going on, I’ve learned to always still smile and give thanks. Not everyone needs to know my struggle.
  21. Everything happening in my life is either “God Allowed” or “God Ordained” .. nothing just happens for no reason. There’s purpose behind everything.
  22. I’ve truly learned to walk away from things and people that no longer serve me growth. I don’t threaten to walk away anymore. I literally just do it!
  23. There’s soooo much power in being positive and on top of that.. it’s contagious!!
  24. Instead of retaliating, I’ve learned how to pray for my enemies more. I don’t know about that meaning that I’ve mastered the art of forgiveness but I do know that it’s a true sign of growth for me!
  25. One of my goals for this month was to stay away from conversations that aimed to tear other people down and it’s funny because I thought this would be a challenge for me but honestly it’s just something that I’ve been naturally doing for the past 3 months. Gossiping is a “hater” activity and so is listening to it. It’s so easy to get sucked into conversations like that but when you’re really focused and working on living your own dream, you don’t have time to be a hater. You don’t have time for none of that.
  26. I’ve learned & still learning how to help people without hurting myself in the process. That’s one of those important parts of self-care that I’ve abandoned for a while now. Glad I’m improving!  
  27. It’s okay to take Mental Breaks! They’re necessary to avoid mental breakdowns.

I won’t be 28 years old until September 11th but I wanted to share with you guys some of the things that Chapter 27 has taught me so far!! Lots of life lessons as you can see  !! Thanks for coming through to vibe with me!!

  1. I love these! I wish I had realized a lot of this at 27…I’m still learning a lot of it the hard way at 34! This is such a great, well written post.

    1. Thank you !! I’m still learning though just like you and honestly I wish I’d known some of this stuff sooner as well ! Probably would’ve saved me a lot of heartbreaks lol but that’s what life Lessons are for lol thanks for reading and commenting!! ♥️

  2. Those are some really good lessons!! It’s sad to say but I’ve learned most of those in my 16 years of living. I’m not bragging or anything like that I’m just saying some of us learn those lessons earlier in life, so they can prepare us for more lessons in the future. Great post!😊

    1. Thank you and it’s a blessing that you’ve already learned most of them !! ♥️ some of us take a little longer because we’re hardheaded lol thanks for reading and commenting !!

    1. Girl that’s one I still have to work on too! All the time! Because one thing is sure … GOD loves your enemies just as much as He loves you! So you have to learn to pray differently when it comes to the enemies. Thanks for reading ♥️♥️

  3. You my dear learned some very important and valuable lessons. I am 37 I am still learning these lessons and it can be heartbreaking. I used to think that everyone had good intentions, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. In my most recent job experience, I thought they were all kind and not back stabbing, but all of them stabbed me in the back . Now moving forward I feel it is necessary to not truth immediately because then I won’t be disappointed! I hope you are doing well Sweetie!!

  4. Life is a learning process, and these learnings allow us to discover who we are. Sometimes it’s hard to learn… needs patience!! Amazing post Jessica! ♥️

    1. Yess! Life is literally always teaching us something !! Never stop being a student ❤️ thanks for stopping by Kranti !! Your company is always appreciated here!!
