It’s funny how when we were young, we thought 30 was SO old, right? Now that I’m past the big 3-0, it’s not so bad. In fact, when I turned 30, it didn’t really bother me. Although there are times that I’m like, where did my 20s go?! Anyone else?
I’ve often heard that the 30s are when you really start settling into things, and have a better grasp at life. I’m not 100 percent sure on that one. Maybe it’s because I don’t feel my age. But I often find myself looking for an “adult” to help me with something… Like I’m still a child! While my life isn’t fully “together” by any means, I’ve definitely come a long way since my twenties. I made a lot of stupid decisions, and didn’t always take the best care of myself– physically and mentally.
But, you live and you learn. That’s life. And then you stumble upon a “Guide To Turning 30,” and it is a little bit of an eye-opener. Even though I’m past 30, there are definitely some things on this list I need to work on.
VICE put together this great “turning 30” list, and I just wish it had been around for me before I hit that milestone! The author of the list did her research… meaning she asked around, and gathered knowledge from many friends and strangers online. So, don’t take this TOO hard! She also highlights that she’s turning 30 this year and describes it as “terrifying.”
Maybe it’s because I’m “old” but there’s nothing terrifying about 30. And you DON’T have to have your life figured out by now. Because I promise you… I don’t. But sometimes that’s what makes life FUN! A new adventure every day. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely want to get to know myself better and be the absolute best version of myself- but that’s a practice!
