30 Things I've Learned in 30 Years...

1.    Forgiving and forgetting doesn’t make you weak.  It actually makes your stronger and wiser than the person who hurt you enough for you to even need to forgive and forget to begin with.
2.    Life truly goes by faster and faster.  Hold onto to those precious moments and create memories.
3.    What you buy and have doesn’t make you happier...
4.    …but sometimes retail therapy is the only thing that helps. 😝
5.    The relationship you have with yourself is truly the most important one.  You can’t love other until you love yourself.  You can’t share in happy and joyous moments until you’re in a happy place.  Take care of your mind, body and spirit.  Self-love isn’t vanity…we get one body and one life to live, take care of it.
6.    Everything happens for a reason.  The heartbreak leads to meeting the love of your life.  Being laid off gives you the drive to start the business you wanted.  Work hard but trust that there’s a plan in place. You’ll end up where you’re meant to.
7.    When you’re having a sh*t day, just force a smile on your face.  It’s surprising how hard it is to hold but once you get through the initial force you’ll realize you’re just smiling to smiling and not because you’re forcing yourself to.
8.    Believe in yourself.  Believe in yourself.  Believe in yourself.
9.    Don’t compare yourself to others.  I still struggle with this daily.  But I know it only hurts me.
10.  Learn to let go.  Sometimes the plans we had or the life we imagined for ourselves doesn’t turn out that way and that’s okay.  Because once we let go we realized the life we have is so much better than the one we could have ever imagined.
11.  Age is nothing but a number.
12.  Take the risk because failure doesn’t hurt.  If anything, failure helps.
13.  Hard work doesn’t always give me what I want.
14.  It’s easy to be nice to others.
15.  Dreams change, drive and diligence doesn’t.
16.  Traveling is the only thing you can buy that’ll make you richer.  You learn more about yourself, about the world and about others.  Travel often.
17.  I can change my mind.  And that’s okay.
18.  You will lose best friends, and it’ll be hard.  But sometimes people are meant to only come into your life for a time being or just one purpose.
19.  Growth and success comes from that uncomfortable place.  You cannot grow in comfort and content.  Learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable.
20.  You can choose to see the beauty or the ugliness in everything and everyone.  Choose beauty.  Choose empathy.  Choose happiness.  It’ll only help your soul.
21.  Dry shampoo is a lifesaver.
22.  Pimples, fine lines, and cellulite are not emergencies, no matter how life threatening it may seem.
23.  Family is everything in life.  The fuel to drive you.  The fuel to make you happy.  The fuel to allow you to grow.  Choose family first, everything else is secondary and can wait.
24.  Admitting you’re wrong is hard.  But it’s the right thing to do.
25.  My sisters are my best friends.  No matter what they’re always there for me and id kill for them.
26.  You’ll meet people who will purposely steer you in the wrong direction but you’ll find our way back.
27.  G-D only tests those who can handle.  No, it’s not fair, but it is preparing you for something far greater than you could imagine.
28.  Accepting help is okay.
29.  Love is uncomplicated.  This holds true with your soulmate, your family and your friends.
30.  I can have it all.  I just need to work hard, believe in myself and be patient.

Thank you all for the beautiful birthday wishes and for being a part of my journey so far.  I’m excited to see where this life takes me and ecstatic to have you along for the ride!
