Things I learned in my 20s

Brains and heart > hot body

You are who you are, and it is much better than being brilliant than smokin’ hot. The best is to be both, but still you should always prefer books to botox!


Wear comfortable shoes

Your feet are yours forever, and if you bruise and abuse then every single day of your life, they will not be very happy with you in the end. No matter if heels or flats, your shoes should be beautiful AND comfortable!


Sleep. Enough sleep.


Keep your good friends close

Friends are a mirror to yourself. Friends are support system.  Friends are your reality check. Your friends know you better than you know yourself, and sometimes make better decisions than you do. And friends make you laugh, like no one else. This is important!


Prefer natural beauty to tons of make up

It is much better to have healthy skin and healthy hair, than mask it behind a make up shield. Healthy glow is better than  even the best bronzer!


Keep an eye on the trends but don’t be their slave

Make sure you have your own style, no matter what.  Find what you feel comfortable in, what makes you feel beautiful and feminine and put it in your closet!


Find yourself and what makes you happy and do more of it

Happiness is one of the most important things. Find a hobby that makes you feel great. Travel. Read. Cook. Find what inspires you and dive into it.

People’s opinions are their own, you don’t have to care about them

That is all.

dont care

Family is the most important thing in life!

Care about your parents. Keep in touch with your siblings. Blood is blood, no matter where you are and what you do.


Love will come when you stop looking

But until then it will be rough, and your heart will be broken, and your soul will bleed. But that all goes away and teaches you tons! Learn from the heartache, so you don’t hurt others.


Be open to new experiences, don’t be afraid to fail. Failure is just the opening of another door.

Learn from your mistakes. Anything barely happens from the first time in life.


Travel, move, learn

Don’t stop moving. Develop yourself. Learn something new everyday. Travel with your heart and mind open, and accept what is different.


I have one year to go… so I hope more will be learned.

Quote of the Day: So much wisdom!

“People are made to be loved, and things are made to be used. The confusion in this world is that people are used and things are loved.”

In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.

Time for Little Wisdom

I have listened to this talk so many times, and every single time there is something new I find out that makes me think, contemplate and discover myself in the words. Sarah Kay is an incredible woman, whom I admire for the endless wisdom filling her words, that are never spoken like simple sentences, but always filling a melody of a continuous breath.

“Getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air.” 

Quote of the Day More Pooh Wisdom

You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Blast from the Past

Today I started listening to the Sunscreen song, and realized that younger people have never heard of it. (and I am not THAT old)  There is so much wisdom and truth in it, that everybody should listen to it and learn from it, and maybe then the world will become a better place.

Published as an essay “Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young” written by Mary Schmich, here are the lyrics.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be
it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
than my own meandering
experience…I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not
understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and
recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before
you and how fabulous you really looked….

You’re not as fat as you  imagine.

Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing

The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm
on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing everyday that scares you


Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with 
people who are reckless with yours.


Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with

Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you
succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.


Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your 
life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they 
wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year 
olds I know still don’t.

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.

Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children,maybe
you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky
chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t
congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your 
choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.

Enjoy your body,
use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people
think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever

Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.

Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for 

Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the
people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you 
should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and 
lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you 
knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live
in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.


Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will
philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize
that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were
noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund,
maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one
might run out.

Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you’re 40, it will
look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who
supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of
fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the
ugly parts and recycling it for more than
it’s worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen…
