10 Things I Wish I Had Known/Started Doing 20 Years Ago

Well, sometimes I think (hope!) a little bit of wisdom comes with age... So here are ten things that I have learned over the years that I wish I had known and started doing twenty years ago:
  1. Wear sunscreen EVERY day.
  2. Accept that life isn't "perfect." That means you aren't, and can't be, "perfect" either.
  3. Treat yourself at least as well as you treat others.
  4. Be thankful every day for all the blessings in your life.
  5. Focus on how exercise and eating right makes you feel (and not so much on how it makes you look).
  6. Let go of the small stuff.
  7. Worry less.
  8. Make food your friend and enjoy every bite you eat.
  9. Ask for help more often; you'll be surprised how many people are willing to help you.
  10. Love yourself. You are a wonderful human being! :0
What are some healthy habits that you have learned over the years (and wish you had known/started doing a long time ago?)

Be well,

  1. Well I've only been around for 20 years, but there are still a few things I wish I could change. Learning to treat myself well is a big one. It's something I knew when I was younger (because both of my parents are in the pediatric heath field) but somewhere along the way I forgot how to have respect for myself. I'm just glad I've figured it out now. Hopefully I can keep it up! I'm going to link this post to my post later today because I think it's great!
