The big 3-0. It’s a milestone that comes with a lot of baggage. For some, it’s a time to reflect on how far they’ve come and all they’ve accomplished. For others, it’s a reminder of everything they haven’t accomplished yet. I fall somewhere in the middle. I’m proud of what I’ve done so far, but I can’t help but feel like I’m just getting started. Turning thirty is a strange feeling.
Well, I’m not going to lie, I’m feeling pretty good about turning thirty. I know a lot of people get anxious about entering a new decade, but for me, it feels like a time to celebrate. I’ve accomplished a lot in my twenties and I’m ready to take on whatever the next ten years have in store. Bring it on.
In just a few months, I’ll be thirty years old. It’s hard to believe that so much time has passed since I was born. I remember being a kid and thinking that thirty was so old. Now, I don’t feel that way at all. In fact, I’m looking forward to turning thirty. I feel like it’s going to be a great year. And so, I thought I would write about it. To document this moment in my life.
How I Felt In My Twenties
In my twenties, I felt like I was on top of the world. I had just graduated from college and was embarking on my career. I was young, carefree and had no responsibilities. I felt like I could conquer anything I set my mind to. But then, life happened. I got laid off, my relationship ended and I was suddenly faced with adulting. It wasn’t all bad though. Through these tough times, I learned that I was stronger than I thought.
I was confident and optimistic about the future. I was full of energy and ready to take on anything. I was invincible. But then, reality started to set in. I realized that life wasn’t always going to be easy. I had to work hard for everything I wanted. And, sometimes, things didn’t go my way.
However, I also felt like I was in a bit of a limbo. I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with my life or where I wanted to be in five years.
Perception of Thirty-Somethings
I’m a thirty-something and I remember what it was like to be in my twenties. I felt invincible and my twenties were a blur of exciting new experiences. Now, as a thirty-something, I have a different perspective.
I’m more settled and my priorities have shifted. I’m still young and active, but I also have a greater appreciation for life’s simple pleasures. I’m more comfortable in my own skin and I know who I am.
As a thirty-something myself, I’ve often wondered how others perceive people my age. Are we seen as being too old for some things and not experienced enough for others? Do people think we’re stuck in our ways or open to new opportunities?
I asked around and did some research to find out what the general perception of thirty-somethings is.
