So I guess it is kind of a big deal to many people. Though one of the major milestones in our life, Turning Thirty is not really all that exciting. Hell there are a ton of mile stones in our life most revolve around our birth
Your 1st Birth – proof your parents aren’t the idiots you later believe them to be
your 16th birthday – proof you aren’t the idiot your parent believed you to be
your 18th birthday – You can make choices that affect the world
your 21st birthday – you can make a choice that effects your world
your 30th birthday - ???
Turning Thirty doesn’t really give you any major perks.
No you’re not the billionaire you thought you would be as a kid
Yes you have less hair on your head than you did in your teens
Yes you have more debt than you did in your early twentys
on the surface Turning Thirty seems like Its just a sign you are getting older. However its not the end of life you thought it would be when you were little. Its not even the middle of life you thought it would be when you were a teen. Turning Thirty is still very much the beginning of life. You now have the knowledge and experience of living life on earth for thirty years. Chances are you are working on a career and growing a family.
It is a point you will take notice of, but it s also a point where you can choose a direction to take. The rest of your life is still ahead of you. Its not to late to pick a new career, get back your high school body, or even make that billion dollars a reality. Nothing is more true in life than the statement you get out of it what you put into it. The last year a crazy amount of things have happened to me here is a short list:
I Watched my son grow in to a little boy
Been to more parties than when i was in college
learned relationships get better as you get older
Got in Better shape than I was in my early twentys
Started Building a successful business
Final Thoughts on Turning Thirty
Guess what i am trying to say is. Though we may have viewed our lives as ending by the time we hit thirty. The fact of the matter is we had no idea what was planned for us and we still don’t. Everyday we meet new people and try new things. The future is what we make of it and Turning Thirty may be A milestone but its not our last mile stone.
