I can't believe I'm 29! I've loved living in New York for the last 7 years and I'm so blessed to be where I am now. I decided to list 29 things I've learned in my 29 years of life. 
  1. You definitely cannot make everyone happy. 
  2. But you can work to make yourself happy. But you have to work to choose that happiness every single day. 
  3. Work hard and be nice. It's the best advice.
  4. Focus on the things you love about yourself. Remind yourself of them every single day. 
  5. Education is a lifelong process. Don't stop when you finish 'school' keep working to improve yourself. 
  6. You do not have to accept advice. You hold the power of your choices. 
  7. The only person you have to live with for the rest of your life is you, so prioritize that relationship above all else. 
  8. Make time for your friends. 
  9. Call your mom and your dad, too. 
  10. If it seems too good to be true, look really closely because it might, in fact, be too good to be true. 
  11. Trust your gut.
  12. Listen, ask questions and engage with those around you. 
  13. If the subway car is empty, someone may have pooped in it. Steer clear.
  14. There’s nothing wrong with saying no. 
  15. But don’t be afraid to say yes to things that challenge you
  16. A good book can move you. 
  17. Keep your passport up to date.
  18. Pay your taxes on time
  19. Pay your credit card on time every month.
  20. Ask for what you want. Always ask.
  21. Sometimes it’s better to ask for forgiveness than permission. 
  22. Never stop exploring who you are, where you live and what you want. 
  23. It’s your life, do what you want not what you think you’re ‘supposed to do’ or what others tell you to do. 
  24. Put your phone down at dinner. 
  25. Let that cry out. 
  26. Ask for help. 
  27. You’re a boss bitch. 
  28. Fake it til you make it, I swear this one is so true. 
  29. Say thank you and show gratitude.
