Seriously? Is It Just Me…

Seriously, what do I know?

Posted on: October 30, 2009

Yesterday I celebrated my 35th birthday, and honestly this isn’t where I thought I would be at this stage in my life. As I prepared mentally for the big day, I started thinking about what I know now that I wish I knew when I was 25 years old. Granted, I’ve gained quite a bit of wisdom over the years, but here are ten things I would have told my younger self:

  1. Just Breathe
  2. Check in with God often
  3. Broken hearts do heal, if you let them
  4. Fake it ’til you make it
  5. It’s okay to be you
  6. You can’t help those who don’t want to help themselves
  7. “They” don’t know what they are talking about
  8. Being perfect doesn’t guarantee a perfect life
  9. Fear will be your biggest competitor
  10. You’re smarter than you think you are

Bonus Tip: Start a shoe savings account now!

Of course, knowing myself when I was 25, I wouldn’t have listened to a word I had to say, Seriously?

Seriously if I had taken these 10 steps I would have saved myself a lot of “which I hadn’t moments”.

I’ve always followed the shoe collection part, if nothing else.

Such words of wisdom – you are an awesome woman! Oh – and Happy Belated Birthday! Love, Renee

Thanks Renee for the birthday wishes! Hope all is well.
