Turning 30 can be exciting but also cause the most anxiety. This year I will be officially 30! (Gosh I can’t believe I just said that). There is so much that runs through your mind when you are about to hit the big 30. Like did I do everything I wanted to do in life (as if hitting 30 is the end of our lives, lol)? Am I where I want to be in my career or love life? I’m sure most of us had dreams of being married with kids by the time we were 30 and that just didn’t work out that way. But hey, it’s not the end of the world. 30 is the new 20!
So instead of throwing yourself into a full on panic attack why not make the beginning of this new decade as productive and fun as you can. For me, that is doing a 30 before 30 list. In this list I wrote down 30 things I wanted to accomplish before I turned 30. Now these have to be things that you know you can accomplish and/or push you out of your comfort zone. It can be as simple as read more books, volunteer, work, or backpack through Europe. Anything that will make you feel excited and ready to start off this birthday being the best YOU, you can be. Let’s change our attitude and be the person we were working towards in our 20’s. Now get started with those lists and welcome 30 with open arms! Until next time..
