Does Life Really Start When You’re 30?

Hey everyone – today is Veronica’s 30th birthday! YAAAAYYY! I’m leaving in an hour to go meet her for dinner, but before I leave I wanted to share my thoughts on getting older (I’m 30 in September) and the whole concept of “my 30’s were the best years of my life” – which I’ve been hearing more and more from people around me.

In my personal opinion – YES!  I totally agree and have always been excited for my 30’s.  I don’t know if it’s because being in your 20’s is still considered “young” or if 30 years is what it takes to really understand what’s necessary to succeed in life, but I definitely think turning 30 is where the party is at.

Here’s why:

  • My 20’s was primarily occupied by self discovery, confusion, experimentation and laziness.
  • Being a 20-something sucks, and society considers someone who is 30 to be more experienced than a person who is 29.
  • The best stories anyone older than you tells are about something that happened when they were in their 20’s. Turning 30 automatically makes you an awesome storyteller!  Well, it hasn’t been scientifically proven yet, but this is what I believe!

Anyways – I have to go hit the subway!  I’d love to hear your thoughts.
