23 Things I learned from Being 23

By: Rachel Scruggs


As some of you may know I went to Paris for my 24th birthday. It was quite the experience. Now, on the 9-hr flight back from Paris to the United States I decided to write down my reflections on everything that I had learned within a year from moving to Houston, attending graduate school and just LIFE in general. My “Jordan year” as people would call it didn’t go so well, but from 2016-2017 I can honestly say that I have grown as a person and learned so much about myself. All the bad I experienced were learning lessons from God himself and for that I’ve gained an appreciation for the bad days. I decided to share my reflections with you all as I feel they can help someone through whatever difficulties they find themselves in. ALWAYS REMEMBER THE DARK HOUR ONLY LASTS 60 MINUTES.
