30 Things I Know At 30

UNFINISHED POST

With my birthday arriving tomorrow, I can safely say I still know nothing about life, but I'll happily lay out a Buzzfeed-esque list of things I've learned at the age of 26.

  • 1 - Spend less time thinking what you want from life and more time knowing what you want.
  • 2 - You can't force someone to like something. Don't let anyone say you shouldn't like something.
  • 3 - You don't notice, but your parents are ageing. Go and see them.
  • 4 - Don't compare your worst moments to someone else's highlights.
  • 5 - Time in your mind isn't relative. Days and weeks can feel long, but your life may still feel short.
  • 6 - Leave things better than how you found it. This applies to anything, but I find it's most useful when cleaning up. Just make it a little better than how it was and everyday you'll see a gradual improvement.
  • 7 - Be prepared.
  • 8 - Plan.
  • 9 - Say yes to more things. No matter if it's out of your comfort zone. You'll most likely regret not doing it when you're sitting at home alone.
  • 10 - Stop caring what people think of you. Only what you think of yourself matters.
  • 11 - If someone is annoyed by you, they aren't constantly thinking about it. People have their own problems to think about.
  • 12 - Don't stop doing something because other people don't want to do it. Just do stuff by yourself. You'll be more committed and it'll show.
  • 13 - Fake it til you make it.
  • 14 - Take a break every once in a while to look around and be 'in the moment'.
  • 15 -
  • 16 - ?
  • 17 - .
  • 18 - ?
  • 19 - ?
  • 20 - ?
  • 21 - Need to do something? Do it now. You will feel a whole lot better about yourself.
  • 22 - ?
  • 23 - ?
  • 24 - Leave things better than how you found them.
  • 25 - And most importantly, 'Honesty is the best policy'. Not saying I was a serial liar, but if you constantly tell the truth, you'll feel a whole lot better about yourself.
