30 things I learned in 30 years.

  1. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
  2. If you want to do something, just do it. Do it alone, do it spontaneously. Simply, just do what you want.
  3. Guys who you wait for texts from aren’t worth waiting for.
  4. Some of the best moments are extremely hard-won.
  5. Prioritizing your career doesn’t make you a cold fish or an un-feeling spinster.
  6. Long distance relationships can work.
  7. One of the best feelings in the world is baking something and having it turn out perfectly.
  8. The best friends who matter are those who’ve been there the whole time.
  9. Your ‘soulmate’ doesn’t come in the package you expected them to.
  10. When you’re dancing with someone who can dance when you can’t, let them lead.
  11. You don’t have to strive for perfection; striving for a realistic personal best is often enough.
  12. Speak up and ask for what you want.
  13. Runner’s high is actually a thing.
  14. Faith and belief in something – even if it’s not ‘God’ – can actually legitimately go a long way.
  15. Life would be more difficult without independence.
  16. Some of the best things in life aren’t free – but those memories are, and they last a lifetime.
  17. Once you’ve cluttered your life so much it’s insane, it truly is as horrible as Hoarders makes it out to be.
  18. I’m lazy, and messy, and disorganized and I have to work very hard not to be. And that’s just who I am. It’s okay to be who you are.
  19. The Museum of Modern Art in New York city is one of the coolest places to visit in the world.
  20. Life truly begins after high school.
  21. If you think you’re good at something, you should let the world see it.
  22. People who don’t change when you do change, won’t be around long.
  23. It doesn’t matter what other people think. Really. It doesn’t.
  24. Your idols, your favourite music, that book you read that you learned a lot from – can be your ‘constants’, just as much as the bible can be for Christians. It’s the same thing.
  25. Love isn’t enough.
  26. Take people’s recommendations.
  27. Sometimes it’s best to just say nothing.
  28. You can wait for apologies forever but most of the time, those apologies will never come.
  29. Head massages are worth their weight in gold.
  30. Animals can really be your best friends during difficult times.
