27 Life Lessons for 27 Years

27 Life Lessons for 27 Years

Birthdays are a great time for self-reflection and an opportunity to remember all of the exciting things you have accomplished over the past year. I can’t believe another year has come and gone and that I am that much closer to the big 3-0!

This is one of the first years I can say that I fully embraced the person that I am and leaned into that weird, uncool and creative side of myself. I have never felt more confident in who I am and where my life is headed.

These are the life lessons I learned over the last 27 years:

  1. Sunsets get better with age.
  2. Embrace your uncool and own it.
  3. People are always going to talk. You may as well give them something to talk about.
  4. Your body physically starts hurting at this age.
  5. Never take a single second for granted.
  6. That bag of all dressed chips is going straight to your hips.
  7. Getting outside your comfort zone is the secret to exponential growth.
  8. Comparison is the thief of joy.
  9.  The news is a dark hole of negativity.
  10. Music has the power to change your mood.
  11. The sun will always come up tomorrow.
  12. The rainbow is a smart functional system, it’s orderly, and it’s really beautiful to look at.
  13. Start every day with gratitude.
  14. You will forever be hoping that you can shop in America again for a reasonable price.
  15. You will get over the end of Hannah Montana and love Miley Cyrus again.
  16. Marrying your best friend is one of the coolest experiences of your life.
  17. Sleeping in gets harder as you get older. But naps get better.
  18. Your friend group gets smaller but the bonds with your friends get tighter.
  19. It gets harder to get back into routine if you fall out of it.
  20. Being kind will always be cool.
  21. Be happy you didn’t grow up as a teenager in the age of Instagram and Tik Tok
  22. You will see what you choose to see; shift your perspective.
  23. Sunscreen and water are your best friends.
  24. Dogs are good preparation for children but you won’t be able to leave them outside for five hours when you need a ‘break’.
  25. Family is forever.
  26. Disconnect often and enjoy the moment.
  27. Today is the youngest you will be. Make the most of it.
