You’re getting closer and closer to your 30s. There is this moment of dread, knowing that you’re leaving the fun decade and moving into the one where people expect you to buy houses and raise a family. However, it’s time to stop dreading time period of your life. There are a number of benefits to turning 30 that you need to remember.
Now is a great time to take your life on a new path. You see, you have gained so much experience over the last few years.
You will have learned things you never thought possible and gain interest in subjects that you possibly hated at school. It’s a great time for making decisions, and you have the life experience to know if they are good or bad.
Your teenage years and that 20s decade were the time for you to make all your mistakes.
The best thing about turning 30 is that you can learn from all those mistakes, and make much better decisions in the future. You may not remember the full details of the mistakes you made, but you’ll remember enough to help fuel your new decisions well.
You know you wasted so much time in your 20s. You spent more time than you should playing Grand Theft Auto and drinking with friends.
As you reach your 30s, you’ll have more of an appreciation for spending time with your family members and friends, and for getting on with studying or focusing on your career. Of course, doing fun stuff is still on the list, but you will appreciate the shorter blocks of time you spend on them much more.
When you were younger, you may have been embarrassed to focus on things that really mattered to you. You may have worried about how your friends viewed your sewing passion or your hobby of making jewellery. This doesn’t have to be the case.
Use your 30s to explore your passions and focus on the things that really mean something to you.
By the time you reach 30 you will have experienced the ups and downs in life. You’ll have been to funerals, and they may have even been funerals of friends. You will have met new babies and seen friends marry.
The decisions you made may have had negative impacts on people, or vice versa. Those experiences go with you later.
In history, reaching 30 meant that you were reaching the end of your life. Many people died in their 40s and 50s, so resented the fact that they were getting older. However, that isn’t the case now. 30 isn’t old.
People are living into their 80s and 90s. Some are even reaching 100 and more! Technology and medicine are advancing, and you know that 30 isn’t even middle age now.
