37 things

This week marks another ring on my tree of life. Today I hit 37, a little closer to 40 yet most days I don’t feel like a grown up. In my 37 years I’ve gained some knowledge and want to share it with you. And to be totally truthful? Some of these things I don’t always do. But I’m working to be better. And to help me branch out I plan to do little videos to talk about each item in a little more detail. Be sure you are following me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so you don’t miss out!

  1. Always be yourself.
  2. Music is good for the soul.
  3. Dance, even when there’s no music.
  4. Do what you love, even if the pay isn’t that great. 
  5. Travel.
  6. Forgive.
  7. Always have a BFF.
  8. Have a pet. Bonus points for a dog.
  9. A clean house feels great but isn’t always necessary.
  10. Read for fun.
  11. Organization and order have their place.
  12. But spontaneity is a good every now and then too.

  22. Laugh as much as possible.
  23. Try to ignore those voices in your head.
  24. Find others you have things in common with.
  25. Wear what you want, not what’s “in” or for your “type”.
  26. Build your family.
  27. Color outside the lines.
  28. Spend time outdoors.
  29. Do art, be creative.
  30. Write. Journal. Blog.

Birthday drink!

I am terrified of videos and hate my voice so I am going to go outside of my comfort zone and make these little videos. They will debut sometime in September, as soon as I get a few recorded and decide the best way to distribute them. I am open to thoughts and suggestions. I don’t think I will do Facebook Live or another live platform.

What would your number one piece of wisdom you’ve gained over the years be?
