5 Things I Learnt From The Kardashians

Oh the Kardashians ...

They will honestly most likely find their way into most of my posts in one way or another.

I love to love them.

As much as people complain about Kimmy K and how self-obsessed she is, I think there's a lot to learn from the family. Yes they may only exist because of a certain home movie but just because someone's handed the key to the castle doesn't mean they instantly know how to reign.

Success is earned and not a given.

They could have crashed and burned a long time ago. But instead they stuck around to teach us some kick ass life lessons.

1. Always Go With Your Gut

Kimmy K's relationship to Chris may have only lasted 72 days, but Kimmy has taught us a very important love lesson - if it doesn't feel right, then it's not.

When I was younger I always used to make sporadic decisions.

Most of the time I had a weird feeling in my stomach and usually each decision ended in tears. As I grew older I began to understand the twisted stomach feeling and sweaty palms.

This is your bodies way of telling you somethings not right.

Kim knew from the beginning that something was wrong in her relationship. And even though it took her 72 days and a lot of backlash and memes, she went with her gut and ended her marriage.

Now nearly 2 kids later, she's the happiest I've ever seen her (and by seen her I mean watched, because lets be honest ... I've never actually met her).




2. Bullying Happens To Even The Rich And Famous

Kimmy K openly admitted that she doesn't smile in paparazzi photos anymore because they made her life hell during her pregnancy with North.

Khloé became obsessed with getting into shape after numerous magazines weight shamed her and she's even been taunted by bullies about how "un - kardashian" she looks.

Rob has gone into hiding because people can't seem to leave him alone, Kendall has had modelling photo after modelling photo picked apart and the baby of the family Kylie has changed her appearance just to feel more confident in herself as she experiences growing up in front of the cameras.

Life is cruel.

And just because you're some of the richest people in the world doesn't mean words don't hurt.

Kylie's latest anti-bullying campaign on Instagram has raised a lot of awareness for the bullying that kids and adults around the world face on a daily basis and shows us that she's just as human as everyone else regardless of their status.




3. Bikes Cannot Be Ridden In The Water ... Even If You're In Bora Bora

On a lighter note, Scott and Rob definitely taught us an important lesson on one of their family vacations.

After a few too many beers, the boys got wild with one of the islands bike and cart duos and decided to test out it's ability to transform into a boat.

Riding a bike with a cart on the back into the water showed us that no matter how fancy the bike (or the water), bikes do not work in the water.

So before you attempt to take your trusty bicycle into the bath tub .. think twice.


4. Hard Work Pays Off

Even for people who have time to go out for every meal of the day and squeeze in some sibling wrestling and maybe even a trampoline sessions, they still have time to work hard.

The Kardashians may have scored their place in the limelight from a one of a kind home movie, but this did not guarantee them success. Just because someone has the limelight on them does not mean that they will be the topic of attention for years to come.

Staying in the spotlight takes a lot of perseverance and I find that all of the Kardashians are extremely hard working.

If I'm ever having an unproductive day at home, I'll start up a Kardashian marathon and after every episode or during an episode I will work on my current goals.

I find them to be inspiring in the sense that they are where they are because of their hard work and if they want to go on 40 vacations and own 200 cars then so be it.

They worked for it. So they earned it.

The crown does not determine the success of the queen but rather the queen herself. #queenkimmy




5. Every Once In A While You Need To Stop And ... Take  A Selfie 

Ahh the queen of selfies herself .. good old Kimmy.

From a season dedicated to her selfie taking to an actual book full of selfies, this girl is not camera shy. Kimmy taught us the best angles and the best locations.

She showed us that no matter when you are , you can and should take a selfie.

From being in the middle of a fire dancing show to being in the car on the way to your sisters admission to jail, there's never a bad time for a selfie.




And while I could have gone on to include a whole essay and possibly a book dedicated to this topic, I'll stop at the 5!
