17 Lessons I Learned During My 30s
Over the Memorial Day weekend, I turned 40. Given that I am currently pregnant, there was no wild party or big trip. My husband and I journeyed 45-minutes from our home for a spa day and a nice dinner. I thought this would be disappointing, but honestly, it felt nice to relax and not make a big deal of things.
And as I sat on the balcony of our hotel room staring out at the lake below, I started thinking about the ways that I had changed since my 30th birthday. In particular, I thought about the lessons that I had learned (often the hard way). Here are some of those lessons.

Eventually, it’s just time to quit. That doesn’t make you a quitter.
