Turning 30 means I get to give you advice

  1. You’re kidding yourself if you think you’ve finally figured “it” out.
  2. Everything is always easier said than done.
  3. Nothing beats a face-to-face chat.
  4. Anything can become an addiction. Spend some time learning how to deal with addictions, it’ll come in handy.
  5. Walking can be a pleasurable healthy exercise if you do it often and long enough, and in good company.
  6. Shame is a human waste product. When we use it as a tool to control people, we’re just piling shit on top of each other.
  7. The closer you are to someone, the more capacity you will have for joy.
  8. And also more opportunity to experience deep misery, sorrow, and suffering.
  9. Which goes to show, everything has a consequence.
  10. Spend some time alone with nothing but your thoughts, you might be surprised at how much you enjoy your company.. or not.
  11. Good posture will save you years of constant agony.
  12. As society becomes faster, it becomes counter-intuitively more imperative to increase focus and patience.
  13. Put weight on your heels more than the balls of your feet, you might still be able to squat without groaning by the time you reach my age.
  14. In this path of life we share with so many others, some are lucky to have paved roads while others rocky terrain. It’s just how reality is. Life isn’t easy, but it’s not trying to be extra difficult for just you.
  15. Don’t expect feelings to last, even though the circumstances are the same. But that doesn’t mean that certain feelings can’t be rekindled.
  16. In fact.. don’t expect anything to last.
  17. People usually pay more attention to what’s wrong than what’s right. It’s the easy thing to do.
  18. The more you wash your hands, the less likely you’ll get sick.
  19. Only action changes reality.
  20. Try not to eat till you’re full, you’ll be happier that way.
  21. If you really want something, be prepared to fail and fail till you get it.
  22. There will always be someone better than you, so get over your insecurity some other way than trying to beat everyone.
  23. MOST of the time quality is better than quantity.
  24. Question everything, especially the things no one else ever thinks to question.
  25. When you chase power, you are ruled by power. When you chase happiness, you’re ruled by happiness. Which would you rather serve?
  26. And whatever you chase will flee from you. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t chase it, or else you will never catch it.
  27. There is a right and a wrong.
  28. Eating colorful natural foods feels better.
  29. You gotta work really hard before you can achieve a life of luxury where you don’t have to work at all.
  30. Just knowing any of this will make no difference. You have to live it.
