31 Things I Have Learned in 31 Years

Today I am 31 years old and I can honestly say that I love life more today than ever before. Getting older is so underrated. As each year of my life passes I become more and more comfortable with my small place in this world. Each day I feel the increased power of experience and wisdom. It excites me to think of all that I will learn in the next 31 years. 

So in honor of aging and growth...these are 31 things that I have learned in 31 years:

1. A few great friends are better than a bunch of average friends
2. You don't HAVE to do anything
3. Every year you should do something that scares you
4. If you want seconds, you should have seconds
5. Money does not buy happiness
6. True happiness is the moment you stop carrying about what everyone else thinks
7. Pets are powerful

8. YOU make your own bed
9. If you don't like your can always build a new one
10. Someone is always watching... every day you have the chance to inspire
11. Scars are a beautiful symbol of survival

14. If you aren't happy with progress you will never be happy
15. Worrying about the future hinders your ability to Live Life Now
16. Seeing someone you love succeed is far more enjoyable than succeeding yourself
17. A little bit of dirt never hurt

18. Not much beats the joy of a passionate high five
19. Having your own style is more important than being stylish
20. A simple smile can change everything
21. In the end things always do work out
22. The car heater makes an awesome blow dryer
23. You are so much stronger than you will ever know

24. The friends that join you in your darkest moments, might not be ones you'd expect
25. You can solve all the worlds problems on a 10 mile run
26. Your home is not the 4 walls around you, it is the beauty that's inside
27. Your mom will always be your mom

28. It's good to get over things fast
29. There is nothing quite like a brand new pair of socks
30. If you want to hug someone...hug them
