There comes a time when you truly realize how insanely short life can be.
Summers used to be so much longer when we were younger, but now the long-awaited warm months seem to be nothing more than just a short blip in time.
Many of us fear well look back on life wishing we had done more, traveled more, loved harder, and checked off more items on our bucket lists.
Needless to say, none of us want to look back on our lives with regrets, so the time is now to surround ourselves with people and things we absolutely love.
Lets do this thing called life right, in every single aspect.
Here are 20 tiny habits to break up with for good if you want to be happy by the time you hit 25.

And lets be real here: It feels freaking great letting people miss you a little bit, ?

Youre only given one life to live dont waste it.
