Day 30: Wrapping It Up
Because this was the first time I’d ever blogged, I thought it’d be appropriate for the last day to be dedicated to reflecting on what I’ve learned from this new experience. Here were the highlights for me from the 30 days.1. I learned that these 30 days turned into about 97 because I got busy! I didn’t realize how time consuming it would be to do 30 activities and also write the blog, take pics, and assemble the entry. It’s a lot of work and I was surprised. 2. I learned that being a perfectionist is too exhausting. I’m over it. 3. I learned I’m organizationally challenged. 4. I learned that the city of Los Angeles is truly a wonderful place to live. I think I take it for granted sometimes. 5. I learned I really just hate running -already knew this, but now I’ll admit it. 6. I learned my fear of heights is even worse than I thought. 7. I learned I’m more brave than I ever knew-even a little bit of a dare-devil. 8. I learned that it’s difficult to write when you’re not in the mood or feel uninspired. Day #30 was two months late! Oh well, it wasn’t perfect and that’s ok. 9. I learned that DisneyLand has a payment plan option if you want an annual pass but it pains you to shell out $400-600 at one time for it. 10. I learned that real friends are the ones you can pick up with like no time has passed even if much has. 11. I learned that every birthday should be celebrated with the wonder and excitement of a 5 year old-especially when you’re tempted to celebrate your 29th five years in a row ;) 12. I learned that I need and want to have a mentor. 13. I learned that I really miss singing and it’s something I want to focus on again. 14. I learned I’m a terrible liar. Poker would not be a good career path for me. 15. I learned practice is essential. Beginners luck is a fluke and will only take you so far. 16. I learned coffee (caffeine) is not a good idea when you’re about to fly across the pier on the trapeze. My nerves don’t need any more stimulation. 17. I learned that it’s just as important to forgive myself for my mistakes as it is to forgive others. 18. I learned that jeans without stretch are not my friend. 19. I learned that it really is a gift to play a character in a project that means something to people years later. I’m very grateful. 20. I learned that having a strong group of friends is vitally important for me. So thankful.
I guess the most important thing I took away from this experience was the reminder that every day deserves to be celebrated. It’s up to me to slow down and make time to do what’s most important to me because the day truly is what I make it. More than ever, I want to live life to the fullest. I sincerely wish the same for you! Thank you for following me on this journey xo Lacey
