28 Things I’ve Learned In 28 Years

Today I turn 28! Of course I never thought I’d experience a pandemic in my life time and I think I learned more in the past year than I have in a majority of my life. Here’s 28 things I’ve learned in 28 years!

  1. Your late twenties are the perfect time to start doing the things you enjoyed in your childhood
  2. You don’t have to act or dress a certain way as you get older, if you want to stay on trend then do it. If you want to side part your hair then do it.
  3. Literally, who cares? In my 28 years I’ve learned that no one’s opinion matters as long as I’m happy and not hurting anyone.
  4. Best laid plans never freakin work out.
  5. So go with the flow, life will take you where you need to be.
  6. There are no rules. You don’t have to be married with kids by a certain age.
  7. You will always be replaceable in your career, so do what’s best for you.
  8. But also try to make your circumstances work for you, you hold more power than you think.
  9. Don’t be afraid to shake things up. If you’re constantly thinking about that trip or making a change, just do it.
  10. I learned the word panacea this year.
  11. I also learned that the uterus is like really small????
  12. Take up a hobby that you don’t feel the need to monetize. It’s so satisfying to learn something new with no pressure.
  13. It’s okay to not be good at everything you try.
  14. There’s no point in hanging on to old personality traits, I used to be an avid reader and still say I’m a reader but if you asked me my favorite book I would have literally no idea how to answer.
  15. SPEND YOUR MONEY! There is no reason to take it to the grave with you.
  16. Success is defined by happiness, so do what you have to do to get there.
  17. Your body changes as you get older, you will never look exactly as you did when you were a teenager. Embrace it!
  18. Let go of the people that are holding you back.
  19. Love isn’t hard, but it does take work.
  20. Don’t text your ex. Especially if he’s not texting you back.
  21. Find ways to make your body healthy and happy without being too hard on yourself. We’re not all meant to look the same.
  22. Speaking of, almost no one looks like their photos in real life.
  23. You’re not old. I would much rather be 28 today than a high schooler again.
  24. Do you guys know how kangaroos are born………….they are born as embryos and crawl into the pouch!! Truly wild.
  25. The grass is almost never greener on the other side. This is for jobs, relationships, everything.
  26. The people worth keeping around in your life will make it VERY obvious they’re worth it.
  27. A handful of great friends is better than a bunch of meh ones.
  28. Your family can be friends and vice versa.

  1. Happy Birthday! I read some blog a while back that was an anti-bucket list (or something of the sort) that instead of listing things you want to accomplish, it listed things they have already done that were once in a life time kinda things… surviving a world pandemic I would say would make the list!
