32...and counting!

August 26, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Happy birthday to me! 

I wanted to share 32 things I've learned in the past 32 years. [in no particular order]

  1. Be you. Blue hair and all!
  2. Love the people that love you back.
  3. Those blue grip-helper things don't help when you're broken, just ask for help from someone stronger. 
  4. Most stuff doesn't matter, don't worry about it.
  5. If you only focus on crappy stuff/people/weather you'll only get more crappy stuff/people/weather.
  6. Take naps whenever it's acceptable.
  7. You don't need 783 'friends', you need a handful of cheerleaders. 
  8. Make plans and then be ok with those plans changing.
  9. Sometimes it's '2 steps forward and 1 step mulligan'  
  10. There is nothing more wonderful than a perfectly ripe avocado. 
  11. Mom's are not appreciated until their children are at least 18, hang in there.
  12. If you don't like it: unfollow, unsubscribe, ignore it, avoid it or shut up.
  13. Take a butt-load of pictures. [then you can pick which ones will go on your 'board' and you don't have to reply on everyone else's crappy photos of you!]
  14. Print your pictures, don't rely on technology to share your memories 30, 70 or hundreds of years from now.
  15. Try new things unless you think you might throw up, then maybe you should skip that one.
  16. If you're in a bad mood, hold the door open for everyone you can- they're always so smily, it's bound to rub off!
  17. Don't keep using a pillow you don't like. 
  18. Buy the safest vehicle you can. #mushybrain #2014triedtokillme
  19. Learn to write with your left hand, you never know when you'll need it! [still working on this but I got pretty good last year!]
  20. "Organizing" doesn't mean "rearrange" it means "get this crap-pille under control before it takes over the whole kitchen!"
  21. Get off-the-grid once in a while.
  22. If you haven't worn it/used it/looked lovingly at it in a year, it's just taking up space for something that you might wear/use/look lovingly at.
  23. Finding 32 things you have learned is hard.  Assuming I can't write stuff like "2+2=4" 
  24. Learn new things. Old tricks are just that.
  25. Watching TV shouldn't be a 'favorite pastime' or hobby. [exemption: Shark Week]
  26. Be kind. Even when you want to be a dick. Kill them with kindness if you have to!
  27. People evolve. Priorities change. It's ok, life goes on.
  28. Pick your battles, do you really just want to battle your whole life?!
  29. Don't drive with just one arm on the top of your steering wheel [10 & 2 people!] #trexarm
  30. Laugh with your kid, more often than not.  You can still be a "parent" while having fun.
  31. Do nice things for your cheerleaders, you might need them someday!
  32. Don't cry when you leave the house with only 1/2 of your makeup done, you're a hot mess and it's ok.  And don't laugh when you see someone with only 1/2 their makeup done.  You never know the whole story.

 Happy 32-and-counting to meeeeeee!
