Giving the Cold Shoulder & What I'm Most Looking forward to Turning 30


Happy Tuesday! 

I am officially ending the last few days of my 20's - Saturday is the big day. Although I've been dreading the number, I have to admit that I'm excited to ring in the big 3-0. All of my friends are older then I am, and without a shadow of a doubt, they all agree that their 30's have been/were their favorite. Here are some of the thing they've told me, and what I'm most looking forward to!

Being more confident in who you are. 
From embracing your faults, and your positive attributes, to not taking no for an answer, there's no better time to start being unapologetic for who you are. 

Creating strong and lasting relationships. 
You'll have fewer friends, but that's because you've gotten rid of all the acquaintances or those friends that weren't adding to you life, and instead formed strong, lifelong relationships. 

Finding your niche. 
Whether that's work, philanthropy, sports or a hobby, you'll truly give what you love your all, and enjoy every minute of it. 

Making plans for the future.  
From travel plans, to career goals, getting married and having kids, there's not time like the present to make a plan. 

Being older and wiser.  
This makes me laugh because I remember how smart I thought I was when I was in college, and boy, I knew nothing. With each year comes life lessons, and I'm looking forward to becoming that much smarter. 

 Enjoying financial stability.
All that hard word pays off, and although mom and dad aren't paying for you anymore, there's nothing more liberating then knowing you earned it. Start saving and investing, not to mention your 401(k)

Family first.
I've always believed that blood is thicker than water. With every passing year, you, your siblings and your parents are getting older, so nothing's more important than snatching up any and all opportunities to be with them. 

I'd love to hear things you've learned, or are looking forward to with every passing year! Until next time!
