32 Things I've Learned This Year!

Time has a way of showing us what really matters. For her 32nd birthday, The Caroline Doll, CEO of POSH PR®, shares 32 things 2018 has already taught her! 

Yesterday was my 32nd birthday. Instead of throwing a big birthday bash, Costa and I spent the day doing things I love, just the little things. Dolls, this was probably one of my favorite days of the year so far! We were intentional with the little things, which meant the world to me!

I was lying in bed, trying to think of something creative and clever to share on my Instagram post for the day, and then I decided to list 32 things that I’ve already learned this year. Sometimes it’s easy to look at the time behind us as a foregone experience we have no control over, something we’ve let slip away. Sitting down and being attentive to this list, however, quickly brought the truth to my attention that time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters. It’s up to us, dolls, to slow down and acknowledge these things. 

These are 32 lessons that have really mattered to me so far this year and I hope you can learn from them, too!
