24 Life Gems I Learned By 24

By: Kacee Marie

As my 25th birthday approaches next month (where my Libra ladies at ?!) I look back and think, where has time gone? It’s crazy to think that I’ll be 25. I take my birthday very seriously, I know I'm not the only one who looks at their day as a mini holiday all about you right? For my 25th birthday, I wanted it to be very over the top with a lot of people and lots of life and love. However, my plans will most likely not happen because of Corona virus.

Since quarantine, I had nothing but time to reflect on life, and all the gems and lessons I was able to be blessed with over this 24 years of life. Reflecting is such a necessary part of the growing process, and although reflecting may be hard because you don’t agree with everything that you did or allowed yourself to indulge in, it’s the only way to grow from the past. So instead of dwelling on what may or may not happen in my birthday, I decided to to write down and share the 24 things I've learned so far in my 24 years of living:

1: budgeting and saving are your best friends

2: heartbreak is normal and helps you get stronger

3: do not procrastinate

4: the people you hang around are a reflection of you

5: you are worthy 👑

6: partaking in therapy is OK

7: self discipline = productivity and results

8: love yourself before you go seeking it from others

9: you are your own validation

10: you will hear more no‘s before you hear yes

11: believe in yourself, or it won’t work

12: you are the only one who can get in your way

13: its okay to forgive

14: travel travel travel

15: your friendships are just as important as your romantic ones

16: preparation is key to success

17: never be scared to be YOU

18: crying and expressing emotions doesn’t make you weak

19: take care of yourself before you take care of others

20: you are beautiful even when you don’t feel like it

21: Life is short, don’t take it for granted

22: it’s okay to walk away from something or someone who serves you no more purpose

23: it’s a Marathon not a race 🏁


Has anyone else been reflecting during this quarantine? What’s a gem or lesson you’ve learned so far? Who else birthday plans have been canceled? It’s okay, we all going to get through it... We Got This ✨
