There are certain life lessons that only experience can teach you. It’s what makes us better at things, more prepared and more interesting people to be around. As children, we have to learn lessons by falling off, making mistakes, and coping with a few bruises. But as we get older the lessons aren’t as easy or as simple as learning how to ride a bike or not to touch a hot pan. I wanted to share a few lessons that I’ve had to learn the hard way, and yet have made the biggest difference in my life. But ultimately, these lessons are what shape you as a person and encourage you to grow in new directions. Check out the full details below!

Whether we’re falling behind in classes, or finding that sitting down with our phone at the end of the night is our new ‘relaxing’, a lot of us seem to fall into a nasty routine with these wonderful devices.

Mothering is hard - there is no doubt about that. However in the hustle and bustle of feeding, clothing, changing, picking up from school, and managing a household with your partner, it’s easy to see how self care and a little ‘me time’ can fall through the cracks. Personally, although I’m not a mother myself, I’ll be the first to agree that out of all of us it’s truly the mums out there who deserve the most self care of us all.
