Birthdays can make you emotional and reflective of your past. Last week, I turned 23 and had a lovely time celebrating with family members and friends in the evening. However, when I woke up in the morning I needed extra inspiration and began to list things that I learned about myself and others at 22.
22 Things I Learned at 22
