30 Things for Turning 30

I'm 30.  I know 30 things.
My 30th birthday was a month ago.  I meant to post sooner for this however, tomato, tomahto, September, November.

I am compiling 30 things I feel pretty certain about.  You know, since it's legit that I'm like a wise adult officially.  I mean, all my cousins who are at least 6 years younger than think I'm 35+ already so there's that.

1. My fave: Water. Drink it, live it, love it.
2. Smile often.
3. Eat breakfast.
4. Read fiction.
5. Don't eat a cookie because it's there. Enjoy treats as just that; a treat that's special and one you can't have any old time.
6. Faith and sweat even a playing field.
7. It's not bad to have 1 credit card for those crazy moments that can come up.
8. Buy the shoes.
9. Eat eggs.
10. Meditate. It's mind, eye, physically opening to much more.
11. Go the distance with education.
12. Laughter is so good and so necessary.
13. Give time to people more than gifts.
14. Traveling really is worth any expense over material purchases.
15. Workout some where, some how, some way.
16. Don't forget where you come from.
17. Work hard, be nice. End of story.
18. You can't unring the bell; think before speaking.
19. Wear the "wrong shade" according to Cosmo if you dig it.
20. Eat clean more than not.
21. Share with a friend. Bring an extra breakfast sandwich for your office buddy.
22. Ask for forgiveness and grant when you can.
23. Stay in touch with your family/friends not in immediate distance.
24. If you can make a living off of a passion do it.
25. Spend time as a server.  You'll meet all kinds of people and learn how to hustle.
26. Organize ambitions.
27. Just drive sometimes.  Windows down, music up.
28. Send thank you notes.
29. Hug hard and full.
30. Wake up every day and start with gratefulness.

To the next 30, friends.

Until we meet again,
M

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
