30 Things I’m Glad I Know Before I Turn 30: Part 6
26. Being nice.
It’s the trick to getting through anything, whether it’s international travel, getting caught in a bad spot or calling customer service. I am happy to say that I am really freaking nice and I know how to not be an asshole. Hooray!
27. How to form a habit.
If I want to do something different, I know now how to adopt a change to a behavior. That used to be really hard for me. I used to just say, “Nope, I could never do that.” But it’s all in the baby steps.
28. The definition of marriage.
Life thus far with my husband has been awesome, and it’s because at some point in our relationship, we decided that we just weren’t going to listen to anyone about how to do things. Just because other people are married doesn’t mean that it’s the same in every other couple. I’ve learned how and when to break the rules, and in what cases to say, “That’s awesome you think that, but we’re doing this our way.”
29. How to get the most out of a bad situation.
Smile. Laugh. Take notes. Put the story out there asap.
30. Where adventure is.
Everywhere. Every day. If you’re willing to look for it.
Here’s to another amazing 30+ years!
