28 Things Learned In 28 Years

Back in mid June I officially entered into my late 20s, which is a little crazy to me, sometimes it honestly feels like I just graduated college. At any rate with age comes wisdom, a little bit more grace, and of course more advice gained to share. So here are 28 things, some fun, some serious, that I have learned in 28 years.

1.      No matter what anyone says leopard can always be used as a neutral
2.    Time takes care of everything
3.    Even though it may not feel like it sometimes you are in the right place at the right time- I like to think each experience, good or bad, leads you down the path you are supposed to be on
4.    A good red lipstick is a must
5.    Enjoy the moment you are in. Each stage in life brings something different, don’t wish time away
6.    Learn not to take life too seriously, it’s an experience that’s meant to be enjoyed
7.     Glitter makes everything better. Fact.
8.    Do the things you are passionate about
9.    A Little Black Dress is perfect for any occasion
10.  According to some plaid is the new black
11.    Often times you learn more from your failures than you successes
12.  The older you get the more you realize just how right your mother really was about things
13.  Time flies is no longer a saying… time really does fly
14.  The right song can turn a bad day in an amazingly wonderful day
15.  Being positive and optimistic will bring good things your way; you get out of life what you put in
16.  Once you are no longer “required” to do reading for school it becomes much more enjoyable.
17.   The older you get the more comfortable you become with yourself and being who you really are
18.  People and things can make you happy or more happy but at the end of the day you are responsible for your own happiness
19.  The beach is one of the best places to be; it heals the soul
20. In today’s world the phrase “don’t stop, can’t stop” is applicable a lot of the time, but one needs to make the effort just to stop for a moment appreciate where they are and have some fun
21.  When in doubt of what to wear for the day pixie pants and ballet flats will always be a classy, can’t go wrong look
22. The older you get the more you realize just how important a good relationship with your family and friends are
23. Leggings can pass as pants, which in my opinion is a pretty awesome thing
24. Disney movies are enjoyable at any age
25. It’s the small things in life that lead to the larger things
26. Making contacts is one of the most beneficial things you can do for yourself
27. Always go with your gut, it is the best internal compass
28. Ice cream can make basically anyone feel better
