22 years ago, a show revolving around the lives of 6 friends living in Manhattan was first aired. Little did anyone know that this show would go on to become one of the most loved and watched shows of all time. Yes, I’m talking about F.R.I.E.N.D.S. The lives of Joey, Rachel, Ross, Monica, Phoebe, and Chandler kept us intrigued and excited about what would happen next. They taught us a whole bunch of things about life, friendships, relationships, and more.

Out of the lot, the lessons we got from Monica Geller on how to take on life were especially important. Here are 5 important lessons she gave us:

  • A diet can change your life

Monica is a perfect example of the fact that not everything in life comes with perfection, but you sure can do your part to make it perfect. Take her figure, for example. Being turned down by a boy because of her figure did not put her down. Instead, she took it up as a challenge and became the hot woman that every guy wanted.

  • Dance like no one’s watching

So what if you don’t have Nicki Minaj’s booty? So what if you’re not the best dancer around? Enjoying yourself is a pleasure everyone deserves, and there’s absolutely nothing that should stop you from believing that you got the moves like Jagger.

  • Everyone loves a good cook

There’s nothing anyone loves more than good food, and Monica was always the go-to person for finger licking food. Clearly, the way to everyone’s heart is through their stomach!

  • Forgive and forget

Despite not being in touch with Rachel for years and years, Monica came to her rescue when she didn’t have anywhere to live and no one to support her. No matter how much time passes, friendship trumps everything!

  • Get hammered like there’s no tomorrow!

Every once in a while, it’s okay to put your guards down and enjoy the moment you’re in.. and maybe have a drink too many. Harmomica is fun, after all.
