They say nothing goes away until it teaches us what we need to know. Well, call me a slow learner but there’s a few things in life that have taken me a little longer to get a handle on than others. I’m talking about the things that annoyingly keep showing up and showing up until the penny – for the love of God – finally drops.
Of course, there’s no beginning or end when it comes to our learning, it’s obviously a lifelong process. You don’t know what you don’t know – but you sure know it afterwards.
So, in the interest of saving anyone else out there some time or frustration, I’m going to share a few of the things that have personally taken me the longest to learn.
Watch: The horoscopes working out. Post continues below.
1. Exercise regularly but find something you enjoy.
Consistency is everything with exercise, but ya gotta find something that feels good to you and your body, otherwise it’s just not going to be sustainable. One of the best things about getting older is that you get clearer on what is for you and maybe even more importantly, what really isn’t.
There’s a lot of experimenting and trying things on in your 20s and 30s – people, jobs, homes, and hem lengths – but by 40 I can confidently say, you couldn’t pay me to do another boot camp fitness class.
