A lesson from each year of my twenties

I turn the big 3-0 this year, so expect a lot of reflective, introspective posts as a result.

As should be par for the course, my twenties were a time where I learned a lot of stuff. Some of the lessons are the direct result of my own actions. Others came from observing others. A few came from things that happened to me.

Here are some of the lessons I learned each year:

Age 20: Most people only truly care about what benefits them and not about the greater good.

Age 21: People who have little nice to say of anyone will have little nice to say of you.

Age 22: As much as you don’t want to be, sometimes you really are locked in to life choices. Choose wisely.

Age 23: You can do everything ‘right’ and still manage to draw people’s ire. People won’t always like you.

Age 24: It’s possible to change, but change often costs more than most are willing to pay.

Age 25: God is in control.

Age 26: Take risks.

Age 27: Believe in what you’re doing. Believe that you’re going somewhere even when it looks like nothing is happening.

Age 28: Sometimes you’re at your strongest when you are feeling your weakest.

Age 29: Bide your time; patience really is a virtue. Know when to let things fall in to place and when to push.

  1. Nice. I wonder if I can think back and come up with one word or sentence to describe each year of my 20’s so far… That would be really challenging for me. But, I love how you managed it. šŸ™‚
