30 things I've learned in 30 years

a few years ago (4 to be exact) I did a post entitled 26 things I've learned in 26 years. since I just turned the big three-oh (this morning!), I decided it would be fun to do another post of this sort. only this time I came up with 30 things I've learned in 30 years! I didn't read back through the post I made four years ago, so it will be interesting to see if I have similar things on each list! although, this time I made each point a little shorter (& lighter), because it takes a while to read through (and type up) 30 things!

obviously this picture was taken during winter lol cause I'd burn up in that jacket during August in the south!


o1; time goes by SO FAST!

o2; sharing your struggles & weaknesses will help others share theirs too!

o3; there is always something to learn from every experience that you have!

o4; life is better when it can be spent with people who get you!

o5; your entire life can change in one instant (one doctor's appointment, one wreck, one phone call)

o6; spending the day in nature can help put things into perspective!

o7; procrastination never pays off! (if you just bite the bullet and #doworkson, then you can enjoy your downtime without the work looming over your head!)

o8; it stinks to be sick as an adult (because you still have to do everything you would normally do!)

o9; you have the ability and the "okay" to change your mind if you want to!

1o; marriage will not fix the problems you have (if anything, it will complicate them further!)

11; you have a lot of opportunity to get free food during your college years - take them!

12; always have a pet! they make the bad days a little brighter!

13; you cannot do everything you're asked to do (and that's okay!)

14; it's okay to cry (and if you live long enough, you will have plenty of occasions to!)

15; don't assume you know someone's story or intention, just be kind!

16; you feel so much better when you get a full night's sleep!

17; take chances when you're young (it's better to know than to wonder "what if?")

18; you do use math in everyday life (at least, if you budget!)

19; forgiving others will set you free!

2o; college is not the best 4 years of your life (there are so many more freedoms as you grow older!)

21; laughter is the best medicine (it can heal your heart & stop an argument!)

22; Hanson's "Snowed In" will always be the best Christmas album!

23; always take pictures (you will be glad you have the memories!)

24; children really do grow up so fast!

25; the more money you have, the more money you're apt to spend!

26; men and women think so, so differently (like, SO differently!)

27; you should try weird things... you may find out you like them!

28; your body will always let you know when you need to slow down!

29; you can find something you admire in every person you meet, if you look hard enough!

3o; thirty is really not that old! ;) but you do start feeling the aging process hit you! (for example, it takes me a looooottt longer to get up off the floor than it used to, haha!)

sadly, I still don't know how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop, though!
what is the most important thing you've learned thus far?
