A Call for Advice Before I Turn 30

I have exactly three weeks left of being 29. Which means I have exactly three weeks left of my 20’s. Which is…well, I haven’t decided yet.

I’ve never really been afraid of or concerned with my age—mostly because I’ve learned that every age has the potential to bring you both good and bad things—but the milestones always feel different. They ask you to reflect, to prepare, to predict, to manifest. They ask you to notice. (And slightly panic.) But mostly notice that you have made it this far.

I look forward to breathing in that milestone.

I also look forward to basking in the vast wisdom and grace I assume arrives at midnight.

But if I happen to be wrong, I figured I’d send out a small request for any advice you might have.

Note: you do not have to be 30 (or older) to provide this advice, as I think we all learn different things at different times in different ways.

So, let’s truly let age just be a number here, and, if you’re willing, give me some advice that has inspired you. Something that you take with you into each day or something that reminds you everything is going to be okay or something that has taught you how to rebuild when things are not okay or something that makes you smile or cry or just helps you breathe.

My 30’s thank you. (As do these last three weeks of my 20’s.)

  1. The 10 years from 30 to 40 will be WAY shorter than the 10 years from 20 to 30. Decide to stop wasting time doing things you don’t love, you have less time than you think. You can decide to start from scratch at any time if you want to and 30 is a really good time to do it because you’ve probably figured out what you like and what you don’t like by now.

  2. To borrow from our good friend, Papa Wooden, “Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” From the outside looking in, you seem to be on your way!
    “Make each day your masterpiece” is another good piece of advice… although really hard in my opinion!
    Just keep being curious and adventurous and kind.. your 30’s are going to be amazing, I can feel it!

  3. I think you are a shining example of what our younger generations should aspire to ❤️

    I have a couple things that I start most days with:
    “I can do all things through Christ who is my strength”
    And, I ask for His grace and mercy to get through whatever the day brings 🙏

    An attitude of gratitude is also a good way to start the day

    You future is going to be amazing, I just know it 😘
