For the month of June in 2015 I shared 30 life lessons and journal prompts in honour of my 30th birthday. These are just a few of the things I have learned in my 30 years on this planet.
At each of the links below you’ll find a short personal essay sharing what I’ve learned, and some journal prompts to encourage reflection.

I think I subscribed to the newsletter to get the journaling prompts but the page didn’t change.
