30 by 31: More Lessons

Wow, I am at Lessons 19 -21 or 30 by 31. This has been such a great journey, not just with sharing here, but all of the reflection that I have been having the past few weeks. I am not going to lie the past few weeks have been a roller coaster ride emotionally and mentally, but so much growth is happening. I know that growth is not at all comfortable. This point is brought close to home as I grow a baby in this belly of mine (who is getting bigger and stronger each day!).

Ok here are a few more lessons to share with you!

30 by 31, Lesson # 19: Cry Ugly.  A good old fashioned cry releases so much more than moisture from your eyes. Tears are a beautiful thing that allow us to let go of what doesn’t serve us anymore to make room for what actually does.

30 by 31, Lesson # 20: Say No a lot. Saying no is easier said than done. We say a bunch of yeses and then feel overwhelmed. Even if a task is small, you have total permission to say no. Give yourself more space in your schedule to just be and roam.

30 by 31, Lesson #21: Take naps. I used to be like a little kid fighting sleep and not wanting take a nap. Naps are delicious things. They let us know that our mind and bodies need rest. Sometimes the wisest thing you can do is actually give into the urge and REST.

What is 30 by 31 all about? I turn 31 next month, and want to reflect on my first year as a thirtysomething. Follow my journey here as I post my  30 by 31 lessons
