27 things in 27 years

I have not been great at this whole "blog every day in May thing".  I would apologize, but I am not sorry.  Life has simply been too busy, and I would rather get stuff done then stress about when I am behind.  I have found a small spinet of time this morning to type my thoughts out.  I have been reflective all day.  I am no where near where I thought I would be this time last year.  I wanted more, I wanted to do better, and to be further along in life.
But sometimes you have to stop, and look back and realize you've come along way. Today, May 18th, I turn 27. And frankly, I have come pretty dang far.

Thanks to the inspiration from a whole lot of bloggers, I’m taking this opportunity to follow suit and celebrate my 27th birthday by reflecting on what I know is true.
1. Not everyone is going to like you, and there is nothing wrong with that.
2. Showing emotion is not a form of weakness.  Knowing when to show it is a skill.
3. That thing you are stressing about that happen with that other person, 98% of the time you are the only one worrying about it.
4. The taller a pedestal you build for some one the harder they fall.  Everyone is human, show them a little grace. 
5. It's never a bad time for a dance party.
6. Boring, tedious tasks (like making a shopping list) are a million times better if you do them in a fun color.  
7. Things will always change, it is inevitable.
8. There is no "defining moment" of adulthood.  You simply become wiser and more mature as you age.
9. It's okay to be very picky about your friendships, you are more valuable than you know.
10.  Love is greater than distance.
11. You don't have to wholeheartedly believe everything that has been hand fed to you.
12.  The answer is always "more cheese".
13. You don't really need to buy that third pair of black flats..... unless they are on mega sale.
14. Take your idea of "one more drink and I will be fine" and subtract 2.  Trust me you will feel better in the morning.
15. Starbucks is overrated.  (yes, I said it)
16. Debt is bad.  No really, it is. If you can't pay for it now, than you cannot afford it. Period.  Also, points on your credit card is not worth charging a new TV.  Just a smal FYI. 
17. If a relationship has to be hush hush, get out before it's too hard to walk away.
18. God loves you because you are you, not because of anything you have said or done.  He will also never stop loving you because of anything you have said or done.
19. The best way to get something is to ask for it.
20. You can learn something from every one, as long as you have an open mind.
21. Don't deprive yourself of something better for you just because you are afraid of letting others down.
22. Money really won't solve all your problems.
23. ALWAYS remember to close your sunroof if the forecast calls for rain, even if it looks sunny out.
24. Be thankful for the difficult times in your life, because it makes you appreciate what you have now.
25. Don't focus on being rich, focus on being happy instead.  That way, you will learn the value of things, not the price.
26. Stepping away from social media will not kill you.
27. Making a list of 27 things the morning of  your birthday is difficult, especially of you just want to go shopping already!
