Reflection is a HUGE part of growing up and getting older and we all do this. We find (or at least me), ourselves “reflecting” more and more as the years go by especially if you are not at the place you thought you would be at the age you are now. For example I pictured myself married, starting a fab career, with a nice car, and maybe a house or at least something I “own” by 30 and I don’t have any of these things. I am unemployed, with a small apartment (rented), no car, and no husband or kids; living and stuck in one of the most expensive, ruthless, and competitive city in the country and maybe the world. Yes I know you know but I will say it again, New York City!
Trying to keep positive vibes, stay focused, and not get frustrated so I think and reflect. These are things I realized at 30 years old that I didn’t at 29:
1. Hard work is underrated and under-rewarded.
2. Just because you want something doesn’t mean you will get it.
3. Persistence is key.
8. Being more aware of my health then reckless.
9. Start dressing for comfort other then “fashion”.
1. Start from the bottom at a job you love or can tolerate, stay there, and grow.
3. Don’t worry or care so much about what other people think or say. You only matter in the end.
5. You can only help others after you helped yourself.
Read, learn, reflect, and grow into a wiser more aware human being. No one is perfect and life is about thinking, doing, reflecting, and learning, without this what is the point of getting up everyday.
