27 Years Of Advice – And How Its Worked Out For Me
With 27 years under my belt, time will continue to pass by so I offer you 27 years of advice in this short extract from my life experiences.
What Truly Is Life?
There is never a right way to guide someone through life, and no matter how much you care and try to educate them they will not listen. I was, and am a prime example of that “someone”.
Here is a short timeline of my life and what I have picked up along the way, yes its silly yes its pointless but if you really sit back and think about the things you have learnt and come away with something fulfilling you can thank me later.
Age 1 – Walking is a piece of cake with bumps and knocks along the way
Age 2 – Following mother around gives you a great perspective on life
Age 3 – Throwing tantrums won’t get you anyway, get back up on your feet and take it like a man
Age 4 – Eat what your mother tells you, it’ll put hairs on your chest
Age 5 – Competing with friends and their toys isn’t going to make you happier no matter how shiny Thomas the Tank Engine is.
Age 6 – Leaving your mother for school isn’t fun but it’ll help you become less socially awkward
Age 7 – Life is not about jealousy, my brother is born, learn to love
Age 8 – Why hello there Sky TV, you will be the one thing that ruins my life
Age 9 – Climbing Trees and making forts will help your creative mind blossom

Age 23 – Don’t take your life and its health for granted it will bite you in the ass… Literally
Age 24 – Alcohol makes you do silly things… After waking up with a broken wrist thinking I knew better
Age 25 – Don’t move out, its the beginning of adulthood and doing things yourself
Age 26 – Travel more, there is plenty of the world to help open your mind
Age 27 – Life is about friendship and the people that matter, not poor work ethics.
