Thanks for stopping by. I hope my blog brings some knowledge and light to your life. 

Life's Lessons (So Far) at 30!

Life's Lessons (So Far) at 30!

  1. Friendships change, and that’s okay. Some friendships end, and that’s okay too.
  2. There really isn't a timeline for your life.
  3. I now know that we are all out here...needing adultier adults way more than we will admit. 
  4. Someone will always have something to say about what you choose to do with your life. Ignore them.
  5. People really make time for who and what they want to make time for.  
  6. Just because you are starting from the beginning doesn’t make you any less adequate. 
  7. It’s okay to say “no”. Be mindful with who and what you choose to give your energy to.
  8. Cats have WAY more personality than many think. Also, have you ever seen a cat catch a fly? It’s impressive.
  9. Relationships take a lot more compromise and patience than people say.
  10. It is ridiculous that men’s pants are buy one pair, get a pair or two free, but women’s pants are just buy one….and buy another. It’s not fair. 
  11. People would rather show their success than tell you how they succeeded. 
  12. There’s a fine line between being nice and being walked all over. Don’t get comfortable with disrespect. 
  13. Always speak the truth, even if it isn’t easy or popular. 
  14. The most formative years of my life were not 18-22, or 22-25. The most formative years were from 28-30….so far. 
  15. When you’ve told friends/people how their actions (or lack of) make you feel, and they continue with those same actions, know that’s a choice, not a mistake. It speaks volumes about how they value you. Don’t put up with it. 
  16. Debt to income ratio is a REAL THING. The consequences of having student loan debt are not talked about enough. 
  17. It’s okay to not be in control of everything.
  18. Accept the fact that it really does take your body three times as long to recover from a night of drinking. Pedialyte and Excedrin are still the real MVPs, though.
  19. Mama really does always know just what to say.
  20. Deleting negative people from your life is important. It doesn’t matter if other people don’t see them as negative. They’re just not for you.
  21. Men cannot multi-task.
  22. God will give you what you think you need, just to show you it’s not what you needed at all. Later on, you’ll say “oooohhhhh….!"
  23.  Far too many people think reverse racism is real. Guess what? It’s not real. 
  24. History is something too many people just do not know, and do not want to know. 
  25. Your wedding day will come and go much faster than you could’ve ever expected. 
  26. Eat the bag of chips. Or the cookie. Or the donut. Go back for seconds and thirds. 
  27. Sometimes you’ll have to put things down without understanding why. 
  28. Don’t settle. 
  29. You can’t grow AND be comfortable.
  30. Black lives matter. All day, everyday. (This is something I’ve known, but I just had to include it in this list.)

Sincerely,
Lettie
