Turning 29 & The 29 Things I Know For Sure!

It’s the Eve of my 29th Birthday. I’m pondering many things tonight. I’m worried about a lot of things in the future. Who am l? what am l doing with my life? Time passes by so slowly, seems like only yesterday that l was in high school…now l am planning things l never imagined a few years ago.

The past 12 months have been a rollercoaster, l have laughed, cried, l have been angry, ecstatic, depressed, dumbfounded and confused at times….but l have remained positive about life and l want to share the 29 things that l know for sure about my life.

1.) Friends are the brothers and sisters we chose for ourselves. If you want to keep up with your friends, call them. Don’t wait, it’s up to you to maintain & initiate contact.

2.) Sometimes say ‘Yes‘ to opportunities you’d normally say No to. See where it leads you….and the opposite works as well.

3.) I depend on GOD… I am nothing without him

4.) It’s up to you, Always challenge yourself. Do have things, learn something, explore new ideas & push boundaries.

5.) You are who you are ….Be real. Nobody wants to be around a fake person.

6.) Love as if it was your last day on earth…Tell those you love that you love them. You never know when they’ll be gone.

7.) Practice letting go of ideals, old patterns, arguments, limiting beliefs, excess, etc. Let go also means forgiveness. Forgive yourself, release the past.

8.) Money doesn’t buy your happiness.

9.) Look for opportunity to learn something everywhere.

10.) Don’t make excuses. Just do it….#Nike

11.) Listen to your haters…they will make you stronger…critics sharpen you…iron shrpens iron.

12.) Laugh…Play…Be..Love…

13.) Accept who you are & where you are. Acceptance is the vehicle for transformation….I am Zimbo

14.) Stress causes disease. It kills. Prioritize a plan to manage stress levels.

15.) Judgement is a waste of time. Comparison is blinding. Both of which will shrink my energy.

16.) The world is so unique & full of amazing experiences. So many amazing things to see. If you haven’t done much travelling overseas, find a way to go one day.

17.) Life can be taken in an instant, so do as much as you can to live each day fully. Make sure you laugh, thank, love & make a different everyday.

18.) Learn to be thankful for the things you have in life instead of focusing on what you don’t have.

19.) Time is something we can’t make more of it. It moves on whether we want it or not. So think about how you want to spend your time.

20.) Learn to appreciate the small things. Enjoy the small things we takes for granted. There are life’s little gift to us.

21.) You can’t please everyone. Just focus on the people you can please & not worrying about the ones you can’t.

22.) Believes in miracles.

23.) The best is yet to come.

24.) Always choose L.I.F.E

25.) You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

26.) Life isn’t fair but it’s always good.

27.) When in doubt, just take the next small step….life is a journey not a marathon

28.) Start saving for retirement.

29.) Do not compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is about.

  1. Hello, Bloggo,

    I want to say thanks for following me at http://www.oldspouse.wordpress.com.

    I’d like to add that if you enjoy my “This Old Spouse” column, I think you’ll love this:


    Or you can go here:


    It’s a terrifying story called The Oklo Device.

    Take a look at the story; see if you get hooked on it, e-mail me at roger.white@tasb.org, and I’ll send you the rest. If you like the story, please share with others. This is the only way good things happen today–agents and publishers are of the dinosaur era. They’re slow; they’re frightened; and they’ll eat you if you’re not careful. We’re on our own. I truly believe in this book. If you do, too, share it with someone. Thank you!

    And thank you so much, again, for being one of the faithful.

    Best regards,
    Roger White
    “This Old Spouse”
