31 Days of Lessons Learned by Age 30

1 Oct

This month I am taking on the challenge of  writing for 31 days straight on one topic. The Nester hosts this event over on her blog and I was inspired to take part. I know writing for 31 days straight will be tough but I am going to try my best. I felt with my 3oth birthday quickly approaching that I would write about all the lessons I have learned in the past 30 years. The lessons will come from various times throughout my life. Some will be funny, sad, silly and thoughtful but I hope to use this as a way to improve my writing and also to capture some great stories I have stored in the memory bank.

Last year, over 700 people took part in this challenge and wrote on a numerous amount of different topics. Check out The Nester and all the cool topics being written about this year.

I am really excited about this and hope that you will read along. Below are the topics I will be writing on each day.

1. Don’t page your mom 911 unless it is a REAL emergency.

2. Always put your car in park.

3. Take the time to enjoy the small things.
