30 in 30 part deux and a half

Time has definitely ran out for my life’s 30 pieces of wisdom. If by some strange occurrence you missed the others, catch up with part 1 and part 2 as we wait.
I’ve always been in awe of those who can spout off a quote or a nugget of wisdom that was passed down to them. Those ones where you sit after hearing it and say, I’m going to remember that. But then walk out the door and never think of it again.

That’s always been me.

I hear them, sometimes I apply them, but I never have them at the ready to share with others. It can take weeks, if not a couple months for something wise to come to me, and often times, the moment has passed and its forgotten again because it isn't needed at that moment. Of course I have all the important ones ingrained…

..don’t eat yellow snow
..look left, right then left again before crossing
..don't judge others quick to apologize

Throughout my life I've learned quite a few valuable lessons. Some actually made sense for me, others were merely words being spoken but I know I've come a long way in my 30 years of life. I've grown up in a way I never thought I would. Seeing things, experiencing things, learning things that have molded and shaped me into who I am today. A person I've come to quite like.

So, if I was only allowed to give one piece of wisdom over all other pieces of wisdom, it would be to talk. Communicate. Understand nothing will ever be resolved or accomplished or laid to rest if you don't communicate. Its scary and nerve wracking and it even might make you break out into a sweat at the mere thought of being honest with the one you love but its essential to ever truly be happy and free from the constant barrage of thoughts, doubts and inner anxiety that will go on inside you.

Because it will go on inside you. So just embrace it my friends, you'll feel better for it.

Yes, communication is important. Good advice. Learning this lesson in being honest with some people in my life. Its not always easy but worth it.

Oh, you are so wise. Communication is so key, especially now, when technology is taking so much of it away from us. It's so important to just talk to people, especially the ones we love, in PERSON, face to face. I've loved reading all these bits of wisdom and of course I'm glad that you retained the "dont eat yellow snow" bit.

You forgot "never pee against the wind"

That one is important too. And floss daily.
