30 lessons in 30 years

I made a list of 30 lessons I have learnt in 30 years. The lessons I have learnt in my short life is largely because of the shoulder of giants that I stand on, piggybacking on the experiences of the older women and men I hang around and I am so thankful for these people in my life. Here are my 30 lessons.
