Turning 30 is something that is often met with panic and a lot of mithering over what’s just another number. However, it seems significant because it’s a round number and the start of a new chapter in your life. Here’s how to have a positive mindset about turning 30.
Everyone’s Timeline Is Different
Just because a friend is succeeding in their career right now, it doesn’t mean you or millions of others in the world should be too. Everyone has a different timeline, and therefore, the stages you progress in life may come differently to others. You may have earlier successes and milestones that you pass like getting a property or having your first child. There’s really no right or wrong time to achieve anything, so don’t start comparing what you have and haven’t done as you turn thirty. There’s so much more time left for you, and who knows what’s coming just around the corner?
Don’t Live In The Past Or Have Regrets
Living with regret or reflecting painfully on the past is no way to live and in fact, it actually impacts what’s going on right now and in the future. Whether you had a stint in a drug rehab facility or you lost friendships that could have worked out differently, these all happen for a reason. They help us build, grow, and evolve ourselves as human beings. So try to avoid having regrets and pay attention to what’s going on now and what is to come further down the line. Remaining in the past is only going to drag your current situation back to that state of mind that you were in at the time. No one wants to backtrack, and it’s important not to allow that to happen.
Age Really Is Just A Number
A lot of us will be scared of turning certain ages because we usually associate it with being a time in our lives that we no longer can live out or get back. Turning twenty-one and not being a teenager, turning 40 and thinking that your life has a lot all of the fun out of it. When in fact, age is merely a number, and it’s more so about how you feel that actually counts. It’s always good to remember this and to provide yourself with that mantra of saying ‘age is just a number.’
Focus On All The Good You’ve Achieved
Focusing on the good things is important because it can help to distract from any negativity in your life. When turning thirty, you want to be feeling good and positive about what this next chapter in your life might bring. It’s exciting, to say the least, so have that celebration for all the great things that you’ve achieved in your life because those certainly matter.
Having a positive mindset in life is important, and so turning thirty shouldn’t be something to worry about or loathe. Enjoy this next chapter in your life and live it to the max!
