27 Things I have Learned In the Past 27 Years:
*Real love takes time to develop. It doesn't happen overnight. But when it does, it hits you like a ton of bricks.
*It's okay to be different. Being different is what makes you special.
*Don't hide your true feelings. Speak up.
*Not every day will be a good day. You may wake up and want to crawl back under the covers. Fight that feeling.
*Chocolate and Bacon taste SO good together.
*You don't need a million friends. You only need the ones that care enough to stick around.
*Laughing is the best kind of medicine.
*A broken heart can only heal itself. No one else can do that for you.
*I like to be alone. More and more the older I get. I don't know what this means.
*Money is best spent on traveling. See the world.
*I like my pasta with butter and cheese and my steak cooked mid-rare. That's just me.
*Sushi is probably the most amazing food ever. ever ever.
*Dreams do come true. Only if your eyes are wide open.
*You can do anything you want to. Create your own life.
*Family is important. They may drive you up the wall but in the end, they're the ones who will always have your back.
*You should try something new every single day. Mix it up.
*I have a shopping problem, but that's okay. Someday I will give it up. At the moment it makes me very happy.
*I believe in embracing an emotion completely. If you need to cry, CRY. Sob it out. Let it go. If you want to laugh, LAUGH. Feel that moment one hundred percent. And then move on.
* Music can make your soul come to life. Music can make or break your day. Without my world wouldn't have been the same.
*A good book in your lap is better than chocolate. True story.
*Hiking is NOT a nature walk.
*In Vino Veritas.
*You really DO become more forgetful the older you get.
*Learning from your mistakes is the best lesson life can offer. Don't ever feel bad about anything you've done. Just promise yourself you'll learn from it. And then stick to your word.
*Macaroni and Cheese is amazing at every age.
*Singing loudly in the car is totally acceptable. So is beating on your steering wheel like it's the drums.Just make sure you're alone or with someone who loves you very much. Chances are you may not be the best singer in the world...
*You never stop learning. Life keeps going. Every single day will be different from the last. And that to me, is the BEST part about being alive.
