22 Lessons Learnt from 22 Laps Around the Sun

Twenty-two laps around the sun have taught me so much about myself, others, the world and the universe. Even reflecting on the last year, it’s insane to think how much growth I have done and how much my life has changed. And it’s all about to change again as I enter a new chapter post-graduation, move to a new location, start a new job and experience what life has in store for me.

Here is a list of twenty-two things that I would love to tell both my past self and you, dear reader. I hope these lessons speak to you in some way and help guide you to live a happier, healthier and more sustainable life. I’d love to know the biggest lesson you’ve learnt so far (let me know in the comments)!


  1. Life is all about learning.
  2. Invest in experiences over things and quality over quantity.
  3. Everything in balance.
  4. Time heals all.
  5. Connection with nature is so important. All life is interconnected.
  6. Always be kind, especially to yourself.
  7. You are the creator of your own life. You have infinite potential.
  8. Manifestation is real. But sometimes things don’t always work out the way you want them to because there are important lessons you need to learn.
  9. Listen to your intuition and gut feelings above all else.
  10. Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things.
  11. Relationships are so important. Value your friends and family. Express gratitude and make time for them.
  12. Travel opens your world.
  13. Be yourself. Don’t care about what others think of you.
  14. You will find your tribe.
  15. Do what makes you happy.
  16. Dancing is happiness in physical form.
  17. Going vegan is one of the best things you can do for the planet, your health and all life forms on Earth.
  18. Exercise regularly for your body, mind and soul.
  19. Become educated and aware of what your money is being used for and conscious of whether you wish to support that. Money is just another form of energy that we release into the world. And what better way to use that energy than to help create a more enlightened positive future?
  20. You can live a plastic-free life.
  21. Buying clothes from op shops is so much fun, steers clear of fast fashion and saves innumerable clothes from going to landfill.
  22. Be the change you want to see in the world.
