30 Things I Learned in 30 Years: Lisa's 30th Birthday Week Celebration Extravaganza!

Whoops! This was supposed to post on Thursday. Don't know what happened! So you get a 2 for 1 today! 

OR: "Dear 20 year old Lisa: Here's Some Advice from a Wiser, Older You"

Life is about growth. I strive to move forward in all things in life. I hope every day that I learn something new, either about myself or the world around me. I thought it would be fun to make a list (another list! can you tell I'm a type "A" personality? lol!) of 30 things I've learned in my 30 years.

  1. Take naps.
  2. Don't sweat the small stuff.
  3. Positive thinking is more powerful than you think it is!
  4. Fake it till you make it. 
  5. Breath - in bad times it will help you see clearly, in good times it will help you enjoy the moment.
  6. An uber clean house is not the sign of a sane mind
  7. Spend quality time with yourself.
  8. Don’t live in the past, you’ll miss your future.
  9. Learn how to accept constructive criticism gracefully.
  10. When someone compliments you, don’t be negative, say “thank-you” and smile.
  11. Be happy with what you have today. There are a lot of people in the world with a whole lot less, even if there are people with more.
  12. Get a dog – life is incomplete without one!
  13. Take care of the things you own.
  14. You are in control of your own happiness.
  15. Love your family with all your heart.
  16. Don’t make apologies for your feelings.
  17. Be kind to strangers.
  18. Eat breakfast 
  19. Karma takes care of rude people, you don’t have to.
  20. If you hate your job, quit now! There are plenty of jobs in the world.
  21. The same goes for anything else if your life that makes you unhappy – change it! You have the power to change your surroundings.
  22. Pay attention! You only get to live in this moment once.
  23. Cook and Eat delicious food.
  24. Laugh! Nothing is better than a good laugh with family and friends.
  25. It’s always better to be over-dressed than under-dressed. 
  26. Your house should be lived in – you don’t live in a magazine.
  27. Walk in beautiful places.
  28. Nature documentaries are awesome!
  29. Don’t bottle your emotions. Feel them and let them go.
