If you just turned 30 or you’re in your thirties, you’ll be glad to know that you are in the best years of your life.
It terrifies some of us to get older, but little do we know that we are entering a beautiful phase in our lives.
When you’re in your 20’s, you are still exploring your horizons. You are fresh out of college, still finding your career path, just started a job, and still paying your student loans.
You haven’t met “the one” yet or maybe you did but for most of us, our 20’s are full of trial and errors, bad dates, mistakes, setbacks, and confusion.
But that’s part of life. In your 30’s everything will be clear. There will be an awakening.
Personally, I was quite terrified when I hit thirty. Saying goodbye to my 20’s felt jarring and bittersweet. But to my surprise, being thirty is AMAZING.
1. You have this “connection” to your higher self
It is the new age for meditation, yoga, sound baths, moon baths, and walks with nature.
When you’re in your thirties you suddenly feel connected to the Universe.
It’s like for the first time in your life, you are awake, your eyes are wide-open, and you know your place in the world.
2. You find out who your true friends are
In your 20’s you probably had ten best friends and you all hang out together or have coffee and go to the club.
In your thirties, you will value your peace and you will actually enjoy solitude. And not all your friends will get that.
Your true friends will understand if you can no longer attend your weekly margarita Sundays because you’re beat-up from work or that you just wanted to relax. This peer pressure will have no effect on you.
And by this time, you may only have three best friends, who turned out to be the best ones out of the ten.
3. You finally know what you want to do with your career
In your 20’s you have just started in the workforce. You may have had different jobs before finding out what your passion is or where you’re really good at.
In my 20’s, I used to be a real estate agent, then a CRM data analyst. I quit both jobs because I was terrible at them.
It was only recently that I discovered that I have skills in writing and that I love doing it. I didn’t even know that I could write before!
My point is: don’t be afraid to try or to dream. Because nothing is impossible.
If you haven’t found your passion at thirty, go ahead and find it. Just do what makes you happy and what you enjoy doing. As you become more mature, you make smart decisions.
Your thirties are also supposedly when your hard work and sacrifices pay off. According to a recent Payscale analysis, women’s wages peak at age 39.
4. You are full of self-love
In your 30’s you fully accept yourself for who and what you truly are.
This means you have embraced your curves, your freckles, and your curly hair.
Skincare is your best friend now compared to makeup. You’re more focused on taking care of your skin than buying makeup to cover up your flaws.
Also, you’d rather stay in on a Friday night for some beauty rest than to go to a club. That doesn’t mean you ditch it totally but if you have to choose between the two, you’ll choose the former in a heartbeat.
You’re excited for yoga and Zumba sessions more than anything because you want to take care of yourself and it feels so good to sweat!
5. You know your worth in your thirties
If you’re single in your thirties, you won’t waste time with meaningless relationships.
You crave a deep and meaningful connection and you know that if they like you, they will get in touch. And if they don’t, it’s their loss. You’ve got other important stuff to deal with. Thank you, next!
6. Flaws don’t bother you as much as they did before
You used to be a smaller dress size and now you’re a little bigger. Back then, your world would crumble but now, you choose to accept and do something about it – in a healthy way.
You’re loving every inch of your body because this is what mother nature designed you.
Best of all, you don’t deprive yourself. You consume healthy meals as much as you can.
7. Your thirties are your most authentic version
You have no time for nonsense, you know what you want and how to get it. You are confident to voice out your opinions about politics and your decisions about what you want to do with your life.
Whether you want to get married and have kids or stay single, your peace matters more than what other people have to say.
You finally get to know yourself and figure out who you really are and you love yourself for that.
You no longer live to please everybody and you do what makes you happy.
8. In your thirties, you see the bigger picture
Yes, the future can still be terrifying, but now you have to courage to approach it face-to-face and prepare for it.
As early as you can, you want to take a look at investments and insurance. You are more conscious of your spending
9. Experience taught you well
From the most basic life skill of preparing the most perfect al dente pasta to choosing the best red wine and cooking the perfect medium-rare steak, to more complex matters such as investing and negotiating, you know how to do them well.
You gained experiences about life and the world and as a result, you are more confident and relaxed because everything is under control.
