30 Things I’m Glad I Know Before I Turn 30: Part 5
21. Public speaking.
Not only do I actually excel at this, I look forward to it! I love going over things with people, presenting materials, reading, whatever. It gives me a rush!
22. Persevering self awareness and self perception.
I know who I am and how I fit into the world. I am a snowflake, a butterfly, a grain of sand. I am a speck in the universe. I am stardust. It’s okay.
23. To always say yes.

24. When to say no.
Just because someone else thinks they know what I should be doing with my time doesn’t mean I’m going to agree. You think I should get rid of x, y or z in my home? You think I shouldn’t be wearing what when? Haha. No.
25. How to cook.
