Happy 28th Birthday to me!

Goodness, I feel old.

Don’t look at me that way.

Anyway, here are 28 things I have learned during my lifetime.

  1. Stop living by “rules.” Rules put you in a box. Break those rules, you won’t regret it.
  2. Dates are fun. Date as many guys as possible. Just kidding.
  3. Spend time daily thanking God for your blessings. After all, he spent all that time creating you.
  4. Fix your hair, you will feel better, look better, and you can thank me later.
  5. School is not the be all, end all of life.
  6. Fail, fail miserably. You will only learn how to pick yourself back off the ground better each time.
  7. Treat yourself. You are worth it.
  8. A good bottle of wine is a must.
  9. Go out and live. Enjoy life, you only have one.
  10. Take compliments with a smile and a “thank you.” You still got it 😉
  11. Your parents will always be correct in all aspects of life. Don’t argue with me.
  12. Open your heart and don’t be afraid for it to get broken. It will break and when it does, you will have your mom and a 1/2 gallon of Bluebell Homemade Vanilla.
  13. Money isn’t everything.
  14. You will never be good at just one thing in life. You are a chameleon, try your hand at everything in life.
  15. Don’t let anyone or anything get in the way of your dreams.
  16. Great friends are hard to come by. Keep a small circle of the ones who make time for you.
  17. Detox your life. Not as in a juice cleanse, or a vegan diet, but detox your life from the people that are toxic to it. Trust me. It’s like pulling off a band-aid.
  18. Your younger sister will always hold your hand while dragging you across the street, defend you against bar “creepers,” and be your wing-woman even when you don’t ask her to.
  19. You can wear all the makeup in the world, but it doesn’t compensate for a heart of gold. True beauty is skin deep.
  20. Never feel bad for singing in the shower and in the car at the top of your lungs.
  21. White girls can rap. Don’t underestimate me.
  22. The best birthday wishes are from your grandparents, who call and sing “Happy Birthday” to you every.single.birthday.
  23. A good spa day will bring out the best in you.
  24. Nothing makes a bad day turn great than being greeted by your dog when you come home.
  25. Mexican food, margaritas, and drunk dancing with your mom. Need I say more?
  26. The higher the hair, the closer to heaven.
  27. When it doubt, wear cowboy boots. Your feet will thank me 🙂
  28. You will only learn to love, when you learn to love yourself. Find things that make you great.
  29. (One to grow on)…eat the cake. Eat the cake, always eat the cake.
