10 Important Truths Every Twenty Something Should Realize

10 Important Truths Every Twenty Something Should Realize

Your twenties are a time rich with experimentation. The transition from dependence to independence can feel like a roller coaster ride. Surely you’ll encounter some bumps over these ten years, so here are six helpful truths to keep in mind during your twenties. We have some obnoxious notions when we are going through that age but it becomes more and more irrelevant when we start becoming mature and realize that there are certain universal facts that needs to be grabbed.

Out of the myriad ‘Grand Pa’ suggestions, here are ten primary and important truths that every 20 something should realize, in order to pour the precious idealization of life.

1. You Can’t Please Everyone

Don’t get stuck in a ritual of validating other peoples’ egos. You cannot possibly please everyone around you. In fact, if you attempt to please each and every person you know, eventually you’ll lose sight of your own needs.

2. Don’t Be Too Materialistic

Do not forget that life is much more than possessions. At times, make an effort to reconnect with your friends, spend time with family, stay home and take care of your pets. Basically, spend most of your effort on making memories.

3. Focus On Building Wealth of Experience

You need money to survive, obviously. But also focus more on acquiring knowledge and become intellectually rich. Learn as much as you can. Read books, articles, magazines, meet people and establish your network.

4. Keep In Touch With Old Friends

In your twenties you will meet many temporary people who will come in and out of your life. Don’t forget about the real friends and family who stick by you. Make it a point to stay in touch with them. If they feel like you’ve taken their friendships for granted, eventually they might not bother keeping up the relationship.

5. Failures Are Okay

The ball won’t always be in your court. It is okay if your grades aren’t always perfect. What’s important is that you keep trying.

6. Your Parents Care

At times it may feel that your parents are pulling you back, or keeping you from tasting freedom. Remember, they care for you deeply, and perhaps 20 years from now you will show the same care to your own kids.

7. Solitude is Indeed Essential

It’s really not that bad when you go out alone for a walk, watch a movie alone or even go for a trip without any company. I should emphasize it’s more matured when you have such experiences as it shows you the ‘Real You’

8. Technology isn’t everything

Well, we are living in an era of mobiles, tablets and laptops where every single thing is digital and our brain follows the instructions of the machines directly or indirectly but we should always remember that it was invented just as the catalyst and not for the whole human evolution process.

9. Sleep Deprivation is Bad

While we grow up, we tend to put our efforts on our career and forget to do the very natural things. Sleep Deprivation is one of the bad things millenials fetch from the bad world’s new trendy work culture but you should always maintain the work-life balance; sleep is an important asset of life, you must know.

10. Dreaming Big can be Dangerous (Figuratively)

Yes, we wanted to be ‘Batman’ when we were 10 but then, we know it’s not real and we should be something more real. Dreaming to own ‘Microsoft’ ain’t going to make you successful but pity.

Your twenties are a thrilling time to let loose while also developing your personality and career. Try to keep a healthy perspective, and you’ll be left with amazing memories for the rest of your life. Good luck with your journey.

35 Anniversary Ideas to Bring You Closer Together

35 Anniversary Ideas to Bring You Closer Together

Every mature relationship has had a less-than-memorable anniversary. Maybe one of you forgot, or both of you got busy with work, kids, family issues, or something else. Whatever happened, the day came and went without fanfare. And neither of you seemed to notice or much care.

But for the health of any relationship, it’s important to make important days feel special. Anniversaries offer the wonderful opportunity to relive beautiful memories, practice gratefulness for your partner, and to show your love and strengthen your bond. Make this year’s anniversary with your significant other something special  — one that will bring you closer together.

The best way to create a memorable anniversary is to do something new and different together as a couple. Stretch yourselves a bit.

While boredom can silently kill a relationship, new experiences reinforce the shared bond you already have and create strong new memories. Just think back to the most significant memories you have right now with your spouse and imagine what new ones you can create!

While you enjoy your chosen anniversary activity, be sure to keep a positive attitude and make your partner happy too on that day. Leave all arguments and day to day detail behind. Just celebrate your relationship. Whether you’re going to spend the day together at home, getting away, or having a wild and crazy new experience together, you can have your best anniversary yet!

If You’re Staying In

  1. Spend an evening with no technology, just the two of you and maybe a board game. It’s hard to keep ourselves away from our computers and smartphones long enough to have a meaningful conversation. Make a rule not to use your tech and you’ll rekindle your relationship!
  2. Make wine or beer together. If you enjoy drinking together, this is a fun activity to try together. Just remember to buy the necessary equipment ahead of time.
  3. Learn something new about each other. With an open mind, try asking some of the New York Times’ 36 questions that lead to love. They’ll help spark intimacy and will lead to some really honest moments.
  4. Have a lazy day. Breakfasts in bed, spend all day in bed talking and napping. Follow breakfast with champagne and dessert! If you feel like getting more active, cook together or play some games. Here’re some simple breakfast ideas for you.
    • Learn to dance at home. This is best for those active couples who work out together and also enjoy learning something new together. Just go on Youtube to find any music with dance tutorials and learn together.
    • Visit model homes or open houses and plan your dream home.
    • Have a special dessert – champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Having an unusual treat makes a day feel extra special. If you want to make the dessert really special, try these tasty dessert recipes.
    • Create a playlist of your favorite songs as a couple. Choose songs that tell your story, and songs that you bonded over throughout your relationships. Here’re some love songs ideas for your inspirations.
      • Write your love story. Write it together or ave each of you write your own and then bring them together in an interesting, both sides of the story format.
      • Get a fondue pot. Fondue is a fun way to enjoy melted cheeses (for savory items) and melted chocolate (for sweeter treats).
      • Decorate! Turn your home into a dressed-up french cottage, a sophisticated restaurant, or simply with flowers. The different ambience will immediately change the feel of your home and make it feel like a staycation.
        • Talk about the future together. It might sound simple and everyday, but imagining how you want to spend your retirement together, or planning future trips can be exciting and romantic.

        If You Want to Get Away

        1. Take a day trip together to your favorite spot. If you live in a city, it can be incredibly refreshing to get away for an afternoon and drink in the outdoors.
        2. Go on a scenic drive and stop at a wine and cheese bar. Or, if you’re lucky enough to have lots of options where you live, try a brewpub. There are tons of small craft breweries with fantastic food options too.
        3. Go camping. Relatively affordable and, if the weather’s right, beautiful and romantic.
          • Take an overnight backpacking trip. For the more adventurous couples, backpacking is an even more intense way to challenge yourself physically while becoming one with nature.
          • Take a wine tasting tour. If you live on the West Coast or in the Northeast, take a drive to the nearest winery. Many offer relatively inexpensive tastings and deals if you purchase a certain amount.
          • Take a scenic train trip. Taking the train means less stress traveling: nobody has to drive, you don’t have to stop for breaks every few hours, and you can sleep if you need to!
          • Save up for a destination vacation. What better time than your anniversary to enjoy the beach at a beautiful resort?
          • Explore a new city. Whether you’re on a budget or have a lot saved up, you can have a great time just exploring an unfamiliar town.
          • Rent a cabin for a weekend away, in the woods or next to a lake or ocean. If you like the outdoors but can only take so much nature, try glamping.
            • Go on a retreat. Yoga retreats, meditation retreats, beautiful natural surroundings … they’re all the rage. Search for centeredness and calm with your partner.
            • Spend a day at a food festival. Many cities have fun and affordable food festivals, occasionally based on a theme. Check out your town’s (or a nearby city) calendar for inspiration!

            New & Exciting Experiences

            1. Go spelunking. Dark, damp, and utterly exciting!
            2. Go on a hot air balloon ride. Because the basket is relatively small, this can be a romantic and deeply personal – and yet thrilling –
              experience.
              • Try sky diving. If you and you S.O. are real thrill-seekers, sky diving can really push you to the edge!
              • Explore the underwater world by snorkeling or scuba diving. This may take you far away from where you normally live and work, which is an added bonus.
              • Experience white water rafting.
              • Drive or hike to the highest spot nearby for a new view of the world. America has tons of beautiful mountains where challenging hikes (or drives) can deliver breathtaking views.
              • Take a craft or cooking class. Up your craft skills or food  making skills, and enjoy something new!
                • Take a wine and painting class today. These classes are easily found these days and even a beginning painter can create a nice painting. Challenging but relaxing, fun, and you get to go home with some artwork!
                • Learn to salsa dance. Dancing is a fantastic way to actively get closer and coordinate physically with one another.
                  • Visit a nearby festival you’ve always wanted to go to. Have fun and let go with fellow audience-members!
                  • Spend the day at an amusement park together. Laugh and carry on like teenagers.
                  • Meet new people! At a restaurant, concert, or class, make it a point to meet new friends. Striking up conversation with someone you don’t know – but with whom you have shared interests – can be an adventurous and rewarding experience.

                  Whether your budget is big or small, and whether you have a little or a ton of time together, focus on each other. There are tons of options, in terms of location, level of physical activity, and cost. You can make the day special in a way that’s right for you!
