30 lessons at 30

It’s been one hell of a year!

There was a flu outbreak, Toys R Us closed down almost 200 stores which made me question why anyone would want to bring children into this cruel cruel world. Oh, and Kanye West forced me to take a Twitter break with his relentless and mildly concerning outbursts.  From one human to another human, I do hope he’s okay.  My twitter comeback is still pending though.

But this isn’t why I’m here!

I’m here because I’ve learned some big lessons at 30, and as I head into the next year with these lessons in my back pocket and adult bangs that have given me a hint of natural botox, I’d like to share some of the things I’ve learned at 30 that’ll hopefully serve as nuggets of insights as we all head into the next year.
