I am completely floored right now as I sit and think about turning 35 years old tomorrow. Like seriously, where has time gone? What have I been doing on Earth all this time? Have I accomplished anything? Do I even know what life is all about yet?
Those are some of the questions that run through my mind quite often and honestly I have a different answer to those questions every time that I ask myself these questions.
This post is going to give you the top 34 things that I have learned or still learning along my journey of becoming. I am going to pause and take a deep breath because just thinking about these things have my very emotional and overwhelmed by God’s love and by the love of every person that I have ever come in contact with whether it be via in person or on social media.
