27 things I learned before 28

My 28th birthday is coming up quickly. A true Leo from birth, I have also enjoyed dreaming, celebrating and not being shy about being the center of attention every now and then. I love my life. I know that nothing I have now came to me randomly. It is all in God’s plan. I learn more every year and everyday. In honor of this knowledge, I am sharing 27 life skills and mottos that I have learned over the last 27 years.

  1. Cleaning the house before vacation is not a waste of time
  2. Planning is caring
  3. It is easy to not compare yourself to strangers, It is hard to not compare yourself to your friends
  4. Having back stock of every day items like toilet paper, your favorite salad dressing and birthday cards will always come in handy.
  5. You will continue to learn and for years to come. You will never know it all.
  6. It is the little things in life that make you feel like you have your life together.
  7. Make time for friends who matter.
  8. Designer bags hold their value.
  9. Singing Disney songs will always improve your mood. It is difficult not to smile while singing Part of Your World.
  10. Don’t mistake kindness for weakness
  11. Keep deodorant and other essentials in your car
  12. There should be no timeline for your life achievements
  13. Knowing your weaknesses is just as import as knowing your strengths
  14. In such a fast pace world, people still enjoy getting letters and packages in the mail
  15. Never take health for granted
  16. Buying clothes out of season is one of my favorite bargain hacks for shopping
  17. I love Audio books because I hate to read but I still want the story
  18. Over the top expectations can ruin anything
  19. Wash your bed and towels regularly
  20. Don’t worry about the size, worry about how it fits. There is no shame in going up a size for better fit
  21. You can only plan so far, then comes God
  22. I highly recommend at least one solo travel trip by yourself
  23. Be bold enough and brave enough to wear whatever makes you feel your best
  24. It is important to vote
  25. Don’t let our passport expire, it is just a pain.
  26. Never stop appreciating your spouse
  27. Never stop dreaming.

A few things that I am planning to work on during my 28th year:

  1. Quality is better than quantity
  2. Not feeling the need to be in control
  3. Take better care of myself so that I can be around for a long long time.

I hope that for all you 20 somethings out there you find this list helpful. I would love for just one thing that I have learned to help someone else who may not have realized that thing yet in their lives. Happy Birthday Leos! Let’s make this next year an even better one!
