32 Things I’ve Learned for 32

As this March comes to end,  I am happy with how this month went. March always brings a mixed bag of emotions but this year/month was different. I’ll definitely remember this one til my last day among the other amazing birthdays I’ve had.  I’ve learned so much especially the last few years and, I wanted to share those bits of wisdom with you.

Cheers to 32,
Alex

  1. Expect the unexpected.
  2. Take time to take care of yourself. You should be the #1 priority which then allows you to take care of your tribe.
  3. Everything is about quality and not quantity.
  4. Forgiveness is more than just saying, “I am sorry” – it’s an action to let go of the anger, rage, or bitterness.
  5. People will assume they know everything about you after a few convos – they’ve only scratched the surface.
  6. No one has their “life together.” Some are just better at faking it. We’re all doing what we can.
  7. Happiness is not a destination – it’s a journey we’re all on.
  8. Dating apps are interesting and weird to explore.
  9. We all have an innate to be needed and wanted by others. We just have different ways of showing that.
  10. Family isn’t just necessarily blood relatives. We pick out our family from the crowd.
  11. Real friends don’t lie.
  12. Time is no factor when it comes to feeling like you’ve known people since forever.
  13. When you click, you just click. When you don’t, it’s ok. Don’t force it.
  14. Vulnerability is a strength and not a weakness.
  15. Home is wherever you feel 100% at your best and, you can be yourself without any sort of hesitations.
  16. It’s never too late to reinvent yourself and become another version of yourself.
  17. Some people will only see you as the version that they met and won’t embrace the new version.
  18. Your tribe should make you feel supported and not caged in.
  19. Dreams change.
  20. Relationships/Friendships take work. We get so busy but don’t forget to check in with your folks. Say hi, squeeze them, tell ‘em you love them.
  21. Some people will disappoint you and, you have to take it for what it is. For every disappointment, there’s three blessings already in your life. We just have to look for them.
  22. Trust your gut. It’s always right.
  23. The Universe/Higher powers will send signs along the journey. Lean into them. Be in tune with the wave.
  24. A good night out involves drinks, food, and convos about life. p.s I am not mad if a tequila shot appears at some point :)
  25. Major life events will always shake you up and bring some much needed clarity.
  26. The only thing that’s constant in life is change.
  27. It’s ok to look back…only to see how far you’ve come from that point.
  28. No bad situation lasts forever – it’s all temporary.
  29. In order to grow, the most important thing is to have an open mind.
  30. Mental health is important. If there’s anybody that messes with it, let them go.
  31. Don’t compare your journey to someone else’s. Work at your own pace.
  32. Be genuine with those that mean something to you. Sometimes, they just need to hear how much you value them.
  33. Man plans and, God laughs. <— extra for good luck.
