As my close friends group enters the realms of 30, I thought I would begin my… decsent (?!) into my 30’s with 30 things I’ve learnt in almost 30 years Earth side.

That was way too many thirties. (yuck)
  1. Don’t worry so much. (LOLLLLL)
  2. Your childhood matters, but don’t let it control your adulthood.
  3. Being a parent is incredible. But life can still be incredible without children. It’s just a different kind of incredible.
  4. Forgive yourself and others. For the big things and even the little things, like your love for Filet o fish.
  5. Be happy with nothing.
  6. Don’t let a child shit in a Jumperoo.
  7. Your parents are human, too.
  8. Dairy and white wine are not my friend, unfortunately.
  9. Secondary school will always be awkward. For everyone. Cringing just thinking about it.
  10. Your opinion is not always wanted. Or needed. Especially when drunk.
  11. Most people are just trying their best.
  12. Soulmates happen.
  13. You will never look back on your life and think you spent too much time with your kids.
  14. Apparently there are people that eat when they’re hungry and stop when they’re full.
  15. What someone thinks of you doesn’t dictate your value.
  16. Ferngully will always be a right of passage, as will Dawson’s Creek.
  17. Listen to your grandparents.
  18. Take time out. Pull up the drawbridge, decompress and regroup.
  19. Be mindful and accountable for your actions, words and life decisions. – own that fringe fail.
  20. Speak your truth but know when to shut the fuck up.
  21. There is more than one way to do something.
  22. Don’t listen to Britney – Remove all things toxic from your life. Don’t even entertain it, regardless of who it is.
  23. Nothing in this life worth having comes easy.
  24. Google is not God.
  25. 2004 will always be one for the history books. – our last summer.
  26. Find someone that makes going to Aldi an adventure – you’ll need it for number 5.
  27. Sunsets will soothe the soul and calm a beating heart.
  28. If nothing changes nothing changes.
  29. Love each other even when you hate each other.
  30. Love always wins.

What life lessons would you add?
