My twenties: A review

My twenties are officially over and I've accumulated a list of the ten things I learned during the last decade.

  • I learned that when I apply myself I can do almost anything I want to do.

  • I learned that the work it takes to accomplish a goal is worth more to me than the paper its printed on.

  • I learned that making good friends is not easy to do and becomes much harder as you get older.

  • I learned that I will probably never live close to some of best friends ever again, so I have to work hard to maintain those friendships.

  • I learned that it is all about who you know, and personality counts.

  • I learned that sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs before finding the right guy, and sometimes he shows up in unexpected ways.

  • I learned how to adapt to new and uncomfortable situations.

  • I learned how to spend time alone.

  • I learned that even if it takes a few years, your ex will always contact you when you are truly over him.

  • I finally learned what the saying, "you have to love yourself before you love anyone else" means. It means that people who love themselves don't put up with other people's shit.

Hello 30's.

i have come to learn that its true what they say: your 30s are the best years of your life. so far, i couldnt agree more, as i am more fulfilled than i have ever been (at age 31).

and im glad that you referenced me in item number 4. ;-)
