I turned 30 last year and I was very naively hung up on all the things I would have to give up once I made it to the big 3 – 0. Now that I’ve been in my thirties for almost a full year, however, I realize that getting older isn’t all about what you can’t do, say, wear, etc.; it’s really about all the amazing knowledge and experience you gain. For example, this year I finally mastered the art of straightening my hair. And I’ve also gotten myself on the road to being financially responsible. Last year, I was terrified about 30 meaning life was all downhill, but this year I’m jazzed about another year of becoming a better me.
So in honor of my 31st birthday next month, I’m sharing 30 things every woman in her thirties should know how to do. If you’re still in your 20s, it’s never to early to start checking these items off. And if you’re in your 30s like me, how many do you already know and how many do you still have to learn? Share your thoughts–and anything I may have left off–in the comments.
