I’ve spent the week thinking about the things I’ve learned in my thirty *cough* years. I must admit that I felt a bit daunted putting together this list, especially after reading so many wonderful bits of wisdom from my fellow bloggers already. They’ve all imparted several bits of wisdom that I would have concurred, so I’m going to try not to repeat what they’ve already said. I think I’m the oldest of the hugs and chocolate group, although I’m not sure how many times Rebecca has turned 29, I think I might have turned 29 at least one more time than she has, but it’s never a good idea to ask a woman her age so we’ll leave it at that.
Be true to yourself- don’t compromise who you are for others.
Be authentic- People want to get to know you for you and they can smell if you’re being fake.
Books can take you more places than a pair of shoes ever could.I can buy roughly 71 books for the price of one pair of Jimmy Choo shoes.
You catch more flies with honey- Yes, it’s an old southern saying and it’s true. Be kind, ask nicely, and use the word please.
If you’re looking for a lost CD, you won’t find it. But you will find the lost shoe you were looking for last week.
Fear is the dream stealer.
No matter how mutual the decision, divorce is never easy.
You learn more from failure than you do success
Take Risks and be open to new experiences.
Never turn your back on the waves in Hawaii
Playing an online video game is an unexpected place to fall in love
You can have long and lasting friendships with people you’ve virtually met
The older you get, the less you actually know.
You can take the girl out of Texas but you can’t take Texas out of the girl.
The brain only has the capacity to hold so much information. The day you turn 30 it reaches its limit and must begin to dump old information to make room for new information. That’s why I have trouble remembering where I put my keys.
Talk less and listen more. Everyone has an amazing story to tell if you’re willing to keep your mouth shut long enough.
Never forget to tell the people you care about that you love them. They won’t be around forever.
You reap what you sew and karma is a bitch
Dream big- the only one stopping you from achieving your goal is you.
Ok hugs and chocolate community. Now it’s your turn. I want to hear what you’ve learned in life.
