I used to say as a teenager that I couldn’t wait to be an adult. I couldn’t wait to reach my twenties and finally be free to do big girl things! I’m sure I’m not the only adolescent who wished time would speed up so they could get to adulthood sooner. For some reason, we imagined that once we reached our twenties, everything would be extra special and easygoing. Those of us in our late twenties were in for a rude awakening when we arrived at the 20-somethings’ and discovered it was packed with bills, bills, and more bills! Hahaha.

Although our parents encouraged us to take our time and enjoy our childhood, most of us didn’t understand what they meant and raced towards adulthood. If you’re in your early twenties, or even late twenties, there are certain important things to keep in mind, so we don’t repeat the same mistakes we did as kids and teenagers.

I recently came across a social media post that inspired me to write this blog post. The gist of the piece was on key decisions you should make in your twenties that will improve your life. I wish someone had told me some of these things I read in the post when I newly entered my twenties. That is why I’m sharing it with you all because it’s never too late to make decisions that can change your life for the better.

Here are the 20 Best Decisions to make in your 20s:

  1. Understand you have time.
