5 Tips on How to Grow as a Person

Good Morning! I hope you guys all had a great weekend! Here in Houston the weather was beautiful and I could accomplish many things.  Today’s post is all about how to grow as a person and some tips to make it easier.  I’m not an expert at this AT ALL but I do have some tips on how I make it easier in my life.  Growing up is never really easy or fun but it’s a necessary part of life.

This topic is so different to my blog and I’m hoping it will be something I can continue talking about.  I’m not going to lie I’m quite nervous posting this because it’s very personal to my life and me.  So please just take some of these things with a grain of salt because I know everyone is different.  Let’s jump right into how to grow as a person.

#1 Question everything.

I know most people just like to accept whatever is thrown at them but I say don’t just accept it, think about it.  Trust me I’m not an overthinker by any means but sometimes it doesn’t hurt to sit back and reflect on what’s happening.  If you do that and trust whatever decisions you are currently in then great! If not it might be time to start making some changes.white denim, light blue button up, henri bendel, denim heels spring outfit, spring inspiration, spring colors, what to wear during the spring season, outfit inspo, blue top, white jeans,

#2 Don’t get too comfortable.

Guys we live in a day in era where everything is constantly changing and more means of life are available than before! Don’t sit back and waste your time doing something you don’t love.  Yes I’m totally referring to jobs here! I recently quit a steady job not because I’m crazy, but because I was getting comfortable and could see myself never leaving.  I love finding places that I love to work at but the work itself wasn’t what I wanted in my life.  I’m sure many of you could relate to this since most of you are full time bloggers.  For those that aren’t make moves and find what you love.  You won’t regret it.white jeans, blue shoes, pink purse, kendra scott earrings, blue top, pink purse

#3 Explore the world.

This one is probably my favorite one because who doesn’t want to travel!? But I don’t just mean I travel I mean with every accept of life, explore it! Never tried that Japanese dish? Give it a try! Want to try that new makeup look everyone is obsessed with? Slap that new obsession on your face.  Remember it’s all about exploring and finding what you love in the is world and how you can make it your own.blue top, blue shoes, white jeans, spring outfit white jeans, blue pajama top, pink purse

#4 Don’t be afraid to fall in love.

Not going to really get to sappy about this here but just want to say do it.  Go out and find that special someone and don’t be scared.  I know meeting new people is SO scary but I’ve met so many people and trust me many of them don’t bite.  (I was a bitter as a child but I SWEAR I’ve grown out of this phase 🙂 ).  Love is one of the greatest things that this world can offer.  It is also one of the hardest things.  Just trust your heart and go with your head.  That’s all you can do.blue pajama top, white jeans, blue shoes, pink purse, henri bendel, target, steve madden blue pajama top, pink purse, spring 2017 trends

#5 Make memories and plan less.

Okay this one is SO weird for me to type about because I’m a planner.  Trust me every day I try to take my life minute by minute, hour by hour, and if it doesn’t go as planned well… AHH!  I want to be a TOTAL control freak of my life sometimes but learning you can’t has been quite hard for me.  I mean we grew up with our parents waking us up at a certain time every morning.  Leaving the house at a certain time every morning to go to school.  Had a school schedule and got off at the same time every day.  Why can’t life continue to have this?

Well I don’t know why it can’t but I’ve learned to look past it (sometimes) and make the most of my situation.  Okay so my phone might die in the middle of the day.   Well that could be a good thing (Trust me) because now I’m able to breath the air and look at the world face on.  So I’m not glued to this phone of mine. Well now I can drink some coffee and read.  So many things can happen that we aren’t planning but making the memories and cherishing them is the best part.

I hope you guys could relate to some of these tips! Growing pains are seriously the worse but are totally normal.  Don’t worry if you aren’t where you want to be right now.  You will find a way to get there on your own time and pace.

I would love hear any tips you have on growing up!

XOXO,

    I had to snap out of being too comfortable because I saw that is wasn’t benefiting me at all! I ended up pushing myself to try new things and even though I was nervous, it’s been great and has taught me new things!

    I absolutely love this. I’m all about planning but sometimes I just let plans take a back seat and create awesome memories. And I agree on finding what makes you happy! I see people who hate their job but don’t do anything to make a change. What a shame!

    One tip I have for growing up is embrace change. Change is inevitable so the less we fight it the better things will be. It’s just learning to navigate them is the hard part. Great article! Really enjoyed it!

    Amazing post! I definitely agree with #2. Life is too short to settle for careers and experiences that aren’t a challenge or what you really want to do. That’s a lesson I’ve recently learned as well.

    I agree with them all! But I don’t think I could ever plan less xD Planning actually makes me grow as a person so I plan on keeping that part of myself 😉
