This past Tuesday I celebrated my 32nd birthday.
Consider this: By the time you’re 30 — assuming a lifespan of a typical human — 40% of your lifespan is nearly over.
Well. That’s kind of sobering.
I started this off with the intent of writing one of those ‘x things I’ve learned in the last x years’, but quickly realized I don’t know if I can articulate 32 things and condense them into bite-sized knowledge, and that a lot of what I’ve learned is so subjective and contextual to myself and my environment anyway.
Still, let’s keep these maxims that I try to live by. Short and simple.
- Kindness > niceness
- Growth and progress, however slow
- Anticipate change and be grateful for it
- Do things that make me feel happy
