32 Things.

Well Hello 32 Years! Once upon a time I was terrified of hitting my 30s. Turning 30 meant I was no longer 20 (duh, obviously!) but 20 symbolized still being young to me, and I was afraid to leave it behind. You know though, I’ve now been in my 30s for two years and although it’s been a rollercoaster, I am loving every moment of it.

So here are 32 random things, lessons, forget-me-nots, whatever’s:


  1. Mom was right! Keep a good credit score.
  2. Social media first thing in the morning can set the tone for the rest of your day.
  3. It’s okay to use the dishwasher.
  4. You’re not a bad Mom if you find yourself hiding in the bathroom closet from time to time for just a moment of quiet.
  5. If you aren’t using it, stop paying for it.
  6. There is plenty of time to become an extreme couponer. Cut yourself some slack.
  7. It’s alright if the recipe didn’t turn out how you anticipated.
  8. Don’t go grocery shopping on an empty stomach.
  9. Drink more water. It is great for your hair, skin and nails.
  10. Don’t hold grudges.
  11. Tell the people you love, that you love them..more.
  12. Karma is real. Try your hardest to put positive energy out there.
  13. Be kind. You never know what someone is going through.
  14. Never underestimate the power of a night in watching Hallmark movies
  15. Listening to an audiobook, is reading a book, and I’ll never believe it not to be.
  16. Time flies.
  17. Get pictures developed from your phone. Future you will be grateful you did.
  18. With a really good playlist, you can kick your morning run’s ass.
  19. Get to the coffee shop when it first opens. The chill music and delicious latte as the sun rises is a great way to start the day.
  20. Do better at finishing things you’ve started.
  21. Write more in your journal.
  22. Once upon a time it was cool to be “one of the guys,” but you 100% need a crew of girlfriends.
  23. It can feel as though you give and give so much of yourself. Treat yourself. Restore yourself.
  24. Going to the DMV will never not suck. Bring a good book with you.
  25. Strolling through the book store at night can be very therapeutic.
  26. Never underestimate the power of a well spoken Ted Talk. Sometimes some motivational speaking is the kick in the butt you need.
  27. There are still amazing people in the world. Appreciate them.
  28. Random acts of Kindness are the best. Pay it forward.
  29. It is never too late to start over.
  30. A friend once told me, “Never waste your time on anyone who isn’t absolutely crazy about you.” I’ll never forget that.
  31. Your happiness is up to you.
  32. You’ll never know when you’ll need to break out the emergency flash light. Keep a stash of batteries.
