30 THING I’VE LEARNED BY 30

30 THING I’VE LEARNED BY 30

Happy First Day of Summer! And Happy Birthday to me! Today I am 31 and embracing this year as the best year yet. The first year of my thirties is in the books and was a great year.  I got up the courage to start my blog, visited Ireland and Scotland with the hubby, took a sibling trip to Nashville and welcomed TWO nephews into the family. Overall I’d say it was a success.

I started this blog as a 30-something to document adult life and hopefully share some tidbits to make it easier for others trying to adult. For today’s 31st Birthday post, I came up with a list of 30 things I’ve learned by 30. This list is what I have learned by my 30’s and what I think are important tools, and it is not meant to insult anyone! It’s simply meant to be an inspirational guideline for other 30-somethings out there learning to adult in this crazy world!

The list covers the basics life, beauty, etiquette and more! Enjoy!

  1. NEVER SHOW UP EMPTYHANDED: Like, ever.
  2. HAVE MANNERS: thank you, please, you are welcome. Easy peasy.
  3. DON’T WEAR WHITE TO A WEDDING. Seems obvious, but there’s always one.
  4. DON’T WEAR BRIGHT COLORS TO A FUNERAL…again, there’s always one.
  5. BE CONSIDERATE: everyone is going through some sort of struggle.
  6. BE CONFIDENT: or at least fake it til you make it. You got this!

  11. HE’S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU: If someone wants to be a part of your life, they will be.
  12. KNOW HOW TO DO LAUNDRY
  13. KNOW A GOOD ADULT COCKTAIL: You don’t want to be the one at the crafty cocktail bar ordering a pina colada…unless of course pina coladas are in fact your drink.
  14. LEARN TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE: Not every situation in life is comfortable, we should all learn to be ok with that.
  15. DON’T LIE: It’s not a good look.
  16. BE KIND: at this point you know everyone is going through some sort of hardship. Don’t be a jerk.
