Lessons From My 20s
Yes, your girl is 30! Thank you for all the birthday wishes, it's much appreciated. Life has been WILD since I last wrote a dating post. Just a quick recap for those that are new here. My relationship ended beginning of August, with an upcoming trip together planned for the end of the month. A trip that we had planned together and already paid for, no less.
Your girl is a pivoting queen and instead booked a fabulous, solo trip to Ireland. Since returning from that trip I was traveling almost every weekend. Las Vegas, Hamptons, D.C., Denver, Miami, Boston, Manhattan - it was a whirlwind of work, crazy nights, and never-ending laughter.

Unquestionably, it was exactly what I needed to fully heal from the breakup. One important thing I want to emphasize to you all though about my healing from my breakup... I let myself feel the emotions of it. Which is something I hadn't done with previous breakups. I would try to push down the emotions in order to function. This time it was totally the opposite.
There were countless nights I would just be awake going over moments in my mind. What did he really mean when he said this? What a waste of time. I wonder how he's feeling. You know, those thoughts *sigh*. But I'm so thankful I allowed myself to ride that emotional rollercoaster. If I didn't I wouldn't be 100% over that period of time and be open to connecting with someone new. If you're going through a current breakup and can relate to this, I promise it gets better!!
Now, why you're really here...I wanted to share some of the biggest lessons I learned in my 20s. Some are more serious than others, however, they're all important so whip out your pen & paper!

Overall, this past year was the best of my life. I have never had so much fun and learned so many lessons at the same time.
