30 in 30

We’re getting closer, my friends.

In my wise old age, I feel it’s my duty to bestow some things..if not wisdom upon you, the readers of this blog. This wisdom does not come lightly and shouldn’t be taken as such but rather to be pondered over, reflected upon and implemented into your own lives as I have every confidence, it will enrich them fully.
When I thought of doing this at the beginning of the month, I didn’t realize how hard it would be to think of 30 pieces of wisdom. Guess I’m not as wise as I figured myself to be, so we’ll start small. Sound good?

~ I heard it in my teens and in my 20’s and the whole time I thought, ‘I’ll have plenty of time.’ Moisturize the neck! Don’t skip this vital step in your beauty regimen! I did my face day and night but always thought I didn’t need to focus on the neck and ladies, let me tell you, I’m noticing those neck lines coming through. And while you’re at it, move on down to the décolletage, because that shouldn’t be skipped either.

~ There is a chance when your career ends unexpectedly before you’re 30, there may be a very good possibility you won’t know what you want to be. And as hard as it is to believe, its ok. Keep trusting God.

~ It is more than okay to NOT believe a Doctor when he tells you something’s wrong. You have cavities?? Don’t believe him, go to another dentist and get checked out without saying a word and see if HE finds cavities. We already know about my surgery issues from the ‘bad dr’…get a 2nd opinion and a 3rd!

~ When alone eating dinner, its ok to use your accent pillow as a table when eating on the couch.

~ No matter how sharp you think your brain is, write everything down! If its not written down, it will never happen! I live for notes, lists, calendar reminders, anything that will get me to remember that I was supposed to do something these days!
~ Money will never buy happiness. I was miserable when I was making loads of money. Now making barely a fraction of it, I haven’t been happier. Do what you love and what you want. Don’t let money or the idea of the perfect job (in everyone’s eyes) stand in the way of yours and your family’s happiness.

~ As the years go by, you will find yourself having more and more mannerisms like your mom and when you do them, you’ll stop surprised but see that it’s ok because you love your mom and honored you do things like her.

~ Allergies for foods will all of sudden surface where they didn’t before. Avocados, spinach and melons will give you reactions without warning.

~ Its actually considered cool (and safe) to look over your shoulder before getting in the other lane. You know, the look all the way over your shoulder thing? As opposed to just darting your eyes to the left… believe it or not you won’t look lame doing it.

~ Stop crossing your legs! Crossing your legs will give you varicose veins! It cuts the circulation off and that’s the last thing we ladies want are those deep blue bulging lines! I learned this in my early 20’s and haven’t crossed them since. Hard habit to break but absolutely worth it.
