7 Awesome Things about Turning 30 That Will Get You Excited ...


With my 30th birthday coming up, I’ve been trying to focus on the many awesome things about turning 30, rather than the slight sadness I feel about leaving behind the “youthful” days of my 20s.

Do you also have a milestone 30th birthday on the horizon?

Since everyone’s life experience is of course unique, these seven awesome things about turning 30 might not apply to each and every person.

Even so, they are definitely true for me and just might ring true for you, as well.2

1. Being Older & Wiser

As bittersweet as it can be to kiss your 20s goodbye, I believe that being older and wiser is by far one of the most awesome things about turning 30.

Remember all the lessons of your early 20s that you had to learn “the hard way,” whether they concerned relationships, work, finances or any other major area of life?

I know I definitely do, but now that I’m about to turn 30, I take comfort in the fact that I’ll never have to go back and repeat various past mistakes.

2. Feeling More Confident

Along with being wiser about life in general, another great thing about turning 30 is the fact that I find myself caring less what others think of me, refusing to let negativity or ignorance derail my confidence.

While some people might misinterpret the phrase “not caring what others think” as an excuse to be rude and disrespectful, I take it to mean living a positive life on my own terms.

3. Knowing Who You Are

We all have different strengths and weaknesses, and now that I’m about to turn 30, I have a much better understanding of my own best (and worst) qualities.

In addition to no longer struggling to “find myself” as much as I did back during my early 20s, I’ve also moved beyond making decisions simply to please others.2
