29 Lessons Learned Before The Big Thirty

Hey Love,

It’s a bit surreal that this would be my final year in my 20s, a period that has taught me numerous lessons along the way. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could invent something so birthdays would only occur once every two years. If you happen to know where I could find that, please do let me know. Ha-ha

Throughout my 29 years on Earth, life has taught me valuable lessons that have shaped me into the individual I am today. Life is a classroom, and every day brings new lessons that need to be learned. Those experiences have allowed me to uncover things I otherwise wouldn’t have, let go of what I was reluctant to release, maintain faith when it seemed out of reach, and appreciate the undervalue.

Here are twenty-nine things life has taught me thus far:

  1. “No” is a word, and it’s fine to say it.
  2. Don’t change who you are just to be like by others.
  3. Different is beautiful.
  4. Let go of the past.
  5. Live life on your own terms, not someone else’s.
  6. Only you know what you’re capable of.
  7. Fear is just an illusion.
  8. If they don’t like it, oh well.
  9. Forgive, but don’t forget.

  1. Don’t hold back or change just to fit into the status quo.
  2. A few good friends are better than a ton of okay friends.
  3. Speak your mind, even when they don’t listen.
  4. Consistency is key to achieving what you want.
  5. Learn to take risks, because that’s what life is all about.
  6. Trust, but not blindly.
  7. Don’t take the little things for granted.
  8. Scars are a sign of strength.
  9. Learn to accept ignorance; you can’t change a perspective that has been around for centuries overnight.
  10. Now is the only thing guaranteed because tomorrow is just a promise.
  11. Don’t go out of your way for people and expect the same in return.
  12. Risks are scary but so worth it, as the adrenaline is a reminder that you are alive.
  13. Put yourself first because you owe that to yourself.
  14. Being vulnerable is also a sign strength.
  15. Expect more, not less.
  16. Be open to change and to new opportunities.
  17. Laughter, goofiness, and happiness are the best medicine for the soul.
  18. Everything has a solution except death.
  19. Bitterness and negativity won’t get you anywhere.
  20. Don’t overthink; just do it.

Can’t wait to see what other lessons life has in store for me in the years to come!

Stay Beautiful XoXo
