25 Life Lessons

Each year a new yet old phenomenon occurs: I face the reality of aging. I’ve learned life lessons and faced fearful facts to grow into the woman I am today.

Each year I acknowledge that time flew even faster, my back aches more, and youth is ever farther from view.

This year I decided to log a few life lessons. This list isn’t exhaustive by any means. Most lessons listed below I learned in college years and rather recently.
