Season 4 – Episode 8: 25 Things I learned While Being 25 In 2017

Updated: Jan 18, 2021

This past year has been a world wind, not bad but also not good. Wait that’s kinda a lie there have been some wonderful good parts this year as well. I am very excited that 2017 is over though. I wanted to share some things I learned this past year and pass them on to my lovely readers. These Lessons range from work, personal to everyday life and in no particular order. These are things that I feel everyone should know if you haven’t experienced things that are similar to these lessons. We all have different experiences and those experiences teach us life lessons on any scale range.  Its important to spread knowledge and lessons in life to all around because we can all learn from each other.
