I was recently asked my age and it literally took me a full 45 seconds to respond. Was I 30 or 31? Apparently your memory starts to go in your 30s. Anyways, as I proceeded to respond the following quote from the ‘Sex and the City’ movie came to mind, “Enjoy yourself. That’s what your 20s are for. Your 30s are to learn the lessons. Your 40s are to pay for the drinks.” I can attest that my 20s were all about the fun – I graduated college, made mistakes, fell in love, drank all the drinks – the usual suspects. But according to Carrie Brandshaw this is my season for learning life lessons. So have I learned any thus far? I’d like to think so. Today I figured I’d share some of them with you!
// Everyone has something they are struggling with. It may be trivial to you but it’s not your struggle. All you can do is be there and be supportive.
// When you make a mistake, accept it, fix it and move on. The longer you stew in the failure the longer you let it run your life.
// It’s never too late to apologize.
// Normal is subjective. And according to Marilyn Monroe, it’s boring!
// Sometimes a good cry is necessary. Give into the sorrow and let it all out. You will feel better in the morning.
// Always be nice. As an adult, you’ll learn that it’s an underrated characteristic and one that is rarely genuine.
// It is better to try and fail than to fail to try.
// There’s no harm in asking. This is a lesson I’ve learned most recently in my professional life.
// If a door closes there’s probably a window opening somewhere soon. Basically everything happens for a reason and timing is everything.
// Be honest with yourself. Always.
