Last weekend I turned 29—in other words, I’m that much closer to 30.
I used to dread turning 30. Growing up, we often believe 30 is the age that you become a true “adult.” If you didn’t have your life in order by 30, then by society’s standards, you were seen as a failure or a screw up. It’s why if you google ‘turning 30,’ you’ll find questions and blog posts filled with fear, anxiety, and questions.
Yet I’ve met countless people my age or older that have been struggling not only to find a job—but their path in life. For many, life begins at 30.
