30 x 30: Lessons of a Trio of Decades

I’ll probably look back and laugh at this list when I am older, as I do with most things I look back on. Time, what a funny construct you are. As it were, there are a few things I’ve learned from my trips around that glowing orb in the sky. I shall dispense them, now:

  1. Travel. If you can’t travel, read.
  2. Always wash your face.
  3. Pretending to be stupid isn’t cute.
  4. You are exactly where you are supposed to be, right here and now.
  5. Everything you want is truly on the other side of fear.
  6. Being ok with being alone is just as important as being with someone.
  7. Cooking is a lost art form – take your time to learn a few signature dishes.
  8. No one is to blame.
  9. When people tell you who they are, believe them.
  10. A sense of humor can get you through anything.
  11. Finding that perfect shade of red lipstick can be life-changing.
  12. Don’t trust people who don’t like dogs.
  13. Self-love is one of the hardest loves to come by, and one of the most important.
  14. Find your people – love them fiercely.
  15. Kindness > everything else.
  16. Comparison truly is the thief of joy.
  17. Don’t be an asshole – people remember.
  18. You deserve nothing and must work for everything.
  19. If you don’t know your worth, no one else will.
  20. You’re going to have to work really hard for something you really want, be ok with that.
  21. Change hurts. Change is hard. Change is necessary. Don’t be afraid of it.
  22. Excercise kind of sucks. Do it often enough and it will suck less. In fact, you may even start to enjoy it.
  23. Making friends as an adult is tough, but put yourself out there anyway.
  24. Some things aren’t worth fighting for, it’s important to know when to walk away.
  25. Breaking up with friends is a thing too, and it’s not any less hurtful than breaking up with a significant other.
  26. Bathtime is sacred.
  27. Flowers can brighten up the dreariest up spaces.
  28. Mac and cheese may be the perfect hangover cure.
  29. Eating less dairy makes you feel better.
  30. Beauty is only skin-deep, work on cultivating other talents.
