30 Things I’ve Learned in 30 Years!

I recently turned 30, and if this were Ancient Rome I would be a wise old man.

So I’ve decided to share 30 things I have learned either through my own mistakes/experiences or through those that have influenced me along the way: (In no particular order)

1. You are never too old to learn something new

2. Spend more time with your family

3. Only you can change the narrative of your life

4. If you are in your twenties, party hard while you can because the hangovers last a minimum of 2 days!

5. The internet isn’t your psychologist, don’t air your dirty laundry there

6. Take lots of “formal” photos at family events, you’ll appreciate them in the future

7. Travel as much as you can, anywhere, everywhere

8. Start saving now, it’s never too late

9. Walk around barefoot outside regularly

10. You are only as old as you feel

11. Nothing happens over night

15. Talk to strangers sometimes (not if you are a toddler)

16. Travel overnight on a train

17. Listen to as much music as you can

18. Regardless who you are, you are no better or worse than anyone…. You have just been born into different circumstances

19. Only YOU can make yourself happy

20. Exercise and eat well, healthy body, healthy mind

21. Appreciate the little things like the clouds or the smell of rain

22. Love EVERYONE!!

23. Be yourself
