What I’m learning in my 30s

In the last years, I’ve been reading many articles about reaching 30s, things to do before and also, what and how you should feel about that milestone. It seems like a tough subject, but I believe it isn’t.

Two years and a few months later, I consider my 30s much greater than my 20s. Hopefully, I will feel this way as years pass by, but for now, let me tell you why:

  1. Cherishing my life. Always thought I will get married by the time I’m 30 but I’m grateful to the universe it made me understand some preset milestones are not my cup-of-tea. This is how I got the time and opportunity to discover my true essence, to develop myself. I know now what I stand for, what my values are, what I look for in people around me and what I appreciate in strangers. Also, I don’t envy others for raising kids, having various assets or gaining different experiences. They have their path, I have mine.
  2. Being more relaxed. All my life I felt the need to deliver, to never let myself or the others down, to do my best in every situation. But with all this constant effort, I felt like I wasn’t doing enough. I found the answer later and it had to do with different optics. If you have a different scale value than mine, my effort could mean nothing to you. So I learnt to relax a little and this is when my mind found a special kind of peace.
  3. Being less interested in spending time with people out of my path and appreciating people I care about. I know by now life is short (I’m not in my 20s, to have all the time in the world) and time should be cherished. So free time is my time to connect with my inner self and people meaningful to me. No need to prove anything to anyone, no need to please others, just time to elevate soul and energy level.

Not suddently but at a slower pace, I grew to become more aware of myself and these changes occuring. Hopefully more improvements to be telling you about in the future. As time passed by, I got to realize my mind was quieter, more confident, more in charge of the whole story. My story. My advice? If you feel overwhelmed, take a deep breath, look at the sky (hoping for a sunny day!) and smile. Don’t get dragged down by your temporal thoughts. Appreciate what you have in your life and always listen to your inner voice.
