I turn 30 next week and the closer it gets, the more I find myself reflecting on my 20’s. For me, it’s been the decade where I grew up and did all the things that count for being what some might call a ‘proper adult’. I found a career I like to think I excelled at, well two actually if you count Motherhood! I got married, I had a child, I became a home owner and a dog owner as well. I wonder what comes next?
Whilst my list of happy memories is endless, there were of course some very rough rides too. But I believe the bad times always make you stronger. So, after a few hours of reminiscing, here are 5 lessons I’ve learnt in my 20’s that I wanted to share…1.Don’t rush. You have all the time in the world to do the big things, there shouldn’t be any deadline to get stuff done. Putting pressure on yourself is not good for your mental health and can make you lose the person you really are. You are enough. When you want to achieve something, do it in your own time, not just because someone else is doing it too.
I still have to remind myself of these lessons from time to time and I am grateful every day that I’ve had the chance to learn them, gearing me up for an even better decade to come in my 30’s!
