30 Things I’ve Learned In 30 Years About Life

2014-09-05-16.42.51It’s funny how time flies, I remember when I turned twenty five and now today I turned 30! I feel like I have grown up so much. My views now are completely different from when I was in my early twenties. I feel like you don’t truly grow up till after your twenty five and sometimes not even. Here are 30 Things I’ve Learned In 30 Years About Life.

  1. If you have to fight for, be confused about, or more upset than happy with your significant other then he is not the one for you. Sorry but when they are the one, you seriously will know without a doubt. There won’t be any confusion!
  2. You really do stop caring about what people think about you once you know and truly accept that you have one life to live. Who cares what others think, its what you want to accomplish and enjoy in life that matters to you, not others.
  3. If you truly want something then go for it. Don’t think about it, you might regret never doing it.
  4. Your eyebrows is the one thing you need to fix in order to feel like you have your look together. If you got bad eyebrows, then you are a hot mess.
  5. You must always have goals to feel like you have accomplished something in life. Goals force you to do things out of your comfort zone and to remember to get things done! Instead of living just to live, live for something.
  6. There really are a lot of stupid people in this world. Sad ignorant people that you would otherwise not have noticed until you got older.
  7. It’s honestly okay not to share sometimes. If it’s yours don’t feel obligated to share it, it’s yours! Now if it isn’t then sharing is caring.
  8. Negativity is toxic,  I believe if you feed into negativity you become negative as a person. You only live once so why be negative.
  9. You cannot control how someone else is feeling or what someone is doing. Everyone has a mind of their own and there is no point in driving yourself crazy if the person will still feel the way they choose to feel or do what they want to do.
  10. Don’t own a credit card until you are at least 25 years of age, or at least have a set income and are responsible with money. I believe the older you are the more responsible you are with money and I feel like if you are trying to establish credit at a young age hand it over to your parents and only use it when it is an emergency.  A lot of young people get into bad financial situations at a young age. Educate yourself about credit before jumping into a shopping spree. I read this book and it changed my views on credit completely.
  11. Give people the benefit of the doubt. Even if you are a stubborn hard headed person, don’t live your life not giving people second chances. Forgive and move on or let someone else explain themselves. You might have jumped to conclusions and it’s not good for your health to be so uptight and hold grudges all the time.
  12. Take pictures every day! Life is beautiful and memories captured is beautiful too. You don’t want to regret not taking a photo of a special moment.
  13. Be polite. Smile, say good morning, excuse me, just be nice. You will feel better and you may actually make someone smile just by smiling at them and saying good morning. If not then screw them.
  14. You can count your best friends in one hand or maybe two and 1/5th lol (that’s for me). Seriously though, you have those friends that are your good friends and then you have those friends that you know will be there for you no matter what unconditionally. You learn in life that not everyone is your true friend, that you are happy with the few close friends that you do have. You know they will bend over backwards for you just like you would for them.
  15. The things that are stressing you out at the moment won’t really matter years from now. It’s just the truth, you won’t be stressing about it five years from now, so take it easy. Just leave it in gods hands.
  16. Don’t lie, you will get caught eventually and just be completely honest.
  17. Everything changes in life, don’t keep sweating the small stuff, don’t expect things to stay the same. As life goes on things will change and you either grow with it or you just grow apart from it. Change is the only constant in life.
  18. The future is what you make of it. Don’t complain if you haven’t done anything to change it or make it better.
  19. Don’t worry about the future, you can’t control what might come at you.
  20. Life is never fair, so stop being a wimp and complaining about it. Instead be grateful for what you do have and accept it and just try to make it better.
  21. Life will fly by in a blink of an eye, live life like it is your last day. Don’t stay bored, do something to make that day count.
  22. Never walk away upset or mad with a loved one. You never know what could happen, resolve the issue and move on.
  23. Karma is real, what goes around comes around. You get what you give out to this earth. So be nice!
  24.  Everyone needs their “me” time. You cannot be supermom, super wife, super friend if you don’t have “you” time. Learn to enjoy your own time to yourself, so you could feel refreshed and ready for whatever life brings you :).
  25. Travel more, take vacations and see what the world has to offer. Life is beautiful and there are so many wonders in this world to see. Go on vacation and relax!
  26. Don’t compare yourself to others, just when you think someone is going through a happy life or are perfect, you don’t know whats really going on in their life. Not everyone is perfect and everyone has their own problems.
  27. Giving is honestly better than getting.
  28. Slow down, everything in life is so much rush, rush, rush how do you expect to enjoy life if you’re always rushing!
  29. Listen to advice from people who truly understand the situation, but truly follow what you feel is right.
  30. Never stop learning. Life will continue to throw things at you that you never knew. Push yourself and educate yourself. Failure is the best way to learn.


  1. Surrendering to the fact that you can’t control other people’s emotions is a daily struggle for me.

    You are so right about brows. I look at pictures of me in high school and college and am distracted by how horrendous my brows look. Why did no one tell me?
