27 Life Lessons I’ve Learnt Along the Way

This past week it was my birthday, and as I approach my thirties, I’ve been thinking about the most significant things I’ve learnt so far, my major realizations so to speak, and by the end of the list I made, I knew it could really be inspiring material for an article!

Birthdays are so full of magic, there’s something special in the air, anticipation and a breeze of nostalgia. I think that birthdays have a special smell, though it’s probably something that happens only in my memories. Be as it may, they are a great moment for remembrance and also for contemplation.
