28 Lessons for 28 Years

Yep. Yesterday I turned 28. Here are a few things I’ve learned along the way…

  • A new year equals new beginnings.
  • Laughing is the best medicine in the world.
  • Yelling will lead to nothing but tears and disappointment.
  • Take a chance with love. You will regret it if you don’t.
  • Eat more vegetables + drink more water. Daily.
  • It’s ok to let your guard down when someone makes you feel good.
  • Be passionate about what you do and you will never have to work a day in your life.
  • Life is too short to drink bad wine.
  • Relationships take work. A lot of work.
  • Cherish your time with your grandparents + parents. They are a part of your history and legacy.
  • Seek a mentor in your professional career. New insight and perspective is valuable + refreshing.
  •  People make mistakes. Listen to their side of the story before you shut them out of your life.
  • Never stop reading. Our brains are only as good as what we digest intellectually.
  • Do something that challenges you {everyday}.
  • Work hard and play harder.
  • Exercise as much as possible. The older you get the harder it is to loose weight.
  • Never cheat. Not on exams, taxes, or on your boyfriend/partner.
  • You can never own too many dresses. Treat life like a runway.
  • It’s ok to splurge on yourself once in awhile. You deserve it! (hello, Chloé bag).
  • Random acts of kindness are always appreciated and never expected.
  • People will come and go in life but family + best friends will always be there for you.
  •  Girls night out motto: Be sexy not sloppy…
  •  Smile more often and people will notice.
  • Ask for help when you need it. Being stubborn and proud is not a good thing.
  • Education is the best investment in life. Taking out student loans shouldn’t make you hesitate.
  • Drink more green tea & less coffee.
  •  A true best friend will support you and be there for you no matter what.
  • When in doubt, pop champagne and dance on the table.

Some of these were easier to learn than others {and it’s still a work in progress} but I’m grateful for each experience. Have a great weekend!
