Thank Me Later: 28 Life Lessons For The Black Millennial Chick

0 0 0 No comments

As I bring my 28th year to a close (next month) I am reflecting on some life lessons that I have learned in this time. It is good to reflect on life and see how to improve and what to pass on to the next generation.

  1. You are responsible for your life.
  2. Fairy tales aren’t real! No man will come rescue you. Not from your uneventful life or financially. You have to throw the life vest out to yourself.
  3. Confidence is your best accessory. Wear it well.
  4. Make good connections and maintain genuine relationships.
  5. It is not selfish to put yourself first.
  6. Your goals are attainable. Pursue them.
  7. Believe that you are able and then others will believe it also.
  8. Someone else’s opinion of you has nothing to do with you.
  9. If you settle for less, don’t be surprised at what you get.
  10. Set your standards with boos from the start. Let him know what your expectations are in your ACTIONS not just your words. No Netflix and Chill. Don’t let him stop by the house just to chat until he has taken you on a few dates.
  11. Experience the new. Stay away from people who tell you what they won’t ever try.
  12. Stay in your own lane. Don’t worry about what others are doing and what they have done to get it.
  13. Don’t talk about another woman’s vagina. What she does with hers is her responsibility, not yours. Keep up with your vagina only.
  14. Speaking of: make sure to get your check ups down there!
  15. Start doing something about your financial future now.
  16. No one should be able to guilt trip you into anything. Sex, favors, loaning money, nothing.
  17. It is ok to have a small circle of friends. You don’t need a big entourage, because best believe there is a hater somewhere in there.
  18. Set strong boundaries for yourself.
  19. Whatever it is that you do, put 110% into it.
  20. Sometimes, it is best to do nothing.
  21. Assess the energies you allow into your life.
  22. Make travel a priority.
  23. Date men who DO what they say, not what they SAY they will do.
  24. If he disappears once and then tries to come back, don’t let him back. That usually means she didn’t want him and he is coming back to someone that he knows does.
  25. Look at your circle. If you are the only one making boss moves, you need to expand to find others doing the same thing as you.
  26. Learn how to say no and not be afraid of hurting anyone’s feelings.
  27. Stop waiting for the perfect time to do something. The stars won’t align unless you take action.
  28. Continue to use contraceptives until you are absolutely able to take care of a child.
