Woman Turning 30 (The Ultimate Guide + Image Quotes)

My 30th birthday will be sometime next year. In my opinion, this is a new high point. Despite being energized by the prospect of turning 30 and planning to celebrate in style, there are a few things that we, the soon-to-be-30 women, should keep in mind. It doesn't matter if you are married with children, a successful entrepreneur, single, or a housewife; whatever you are, you should always remember that happiness should never, ever leave your life.

I know some women who are still under the age of 30 who experience “depression” as a result of their age. If you remind them of their upcoming birthday, they will respond, “Thank you for reminding me of my age!” Grr!” I would tell them that age is just a number. What matters is how you prefer to live your life. And to them (as well as the rest of the near-30s women around the world), I'd add, “Here are 10 lessons on happiness that you should know before (and maybe after) you turn 30.”

1. Place a high value on your relationships

You're more or less settled in life by this point. You have a fantastic job, pleasant coworkers, and enough money to live comfortably. Alternatively, you have a house full of playful, tiny members running around, and your time is spent cooking, cleaning, babysitting, and doing everything in between, leaving you completely exhausted at the end of the day.

Regardless of whether your day begins at 6:00 a.m. and ends at 10:00 p.m., don't forget the important people who have shaped you into the person you are today. Call your parents, talk to your siblings, and stay in touch with your friends. Make an effort to do so on a regular basis. Talking to them can help you relax. Remember that they are the ones who will stick by you through thick and thin.

2. Don't rush; instead, take it slowly

This applies to everything in your life. Don't be hurried. If you're dating someone, take your time deciding if your partner is the right one for you and if you want to spend the rest of your life with them. If you enjoy doing something, go ahead and do it.

For example, don't change your job just to make more money. Do the thing you enjoy the most. Allow yourself time to grow into your chosen path, even if it takes some time. Being 30 does not imply that you have solved your life's puzzle. You're still quite young.

3. It's not all about your work; you have a life, too!

This brings me to the point of molding your career and life. There are many young people out there who would devote their entire lives to their work. And I'm not just talking about office-related services here. It could be household chores or anything else that is monotonous.

There's an old adage that says “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” Every now and then, we all need to have some fun. Plan a day out with your friends on one of your weekends. Watch movies, explore the outskirts of your city, and travel. Various activities will help to clear your mind.

4. You can't buy happiness with money

Women, you may argue that shopping is your source of happiness, and that you require money to do so. This is unarguable. Is happiness, however, entirely dependent on money? No, not at all. There are some things in life that are more important than others.

For instance, a lengthy phone call with your bestie. Those sluggish vacations you take with your family at home. Or simply relaxing in the sun while reading your favorite book in your favorite park. The silliest laughs and the most inane jokes. And no, just because you're a “adult” doesn't mean you can't enjoy all of these things over and over.

5. Nobody is picture-perfect

The models you see in glossy magazines have been photoshopped. So don't worry about trying to imitate the supermodels. They, too, have flaws. They're also quite lovely. You, too, are. Accept yourself and your flaws.

6. Base your life on your experiences

The best way to learn new things in life is through experience. It is believed that through experiences, one can learn firsthand lessons that are more important and valuable than what one learns in school or from books.

Traveling is a type of firsthand experience. The more you travel, the more you learn about the world. The more you try different cuisines, the more you learn about different cultures. The more you interact with people, the better you will understand human nature. The more you show interest in various topics, the more you will be able to broaden your knowledge. So, the next time you want to learn to dance, go ahead and do it. Don't put a stop to it.

7. Comparisons add unnecessary stress

This is something that those of us who are about to turn 30 do naturally. We make an effort to compare ourselves to others our age. To be honest, that is completely incorrect. It simply puts a lot of pressure on yourself, leading to depression, frustration, and other negative emotions.

Why should you care if your friend is wealthy enough to spend thousands of dollars per month? Or if she has a family with a husband and children? Everyone has their own set of priorities. Every person creates their own life. You, too, are doing it. Don't bemoan what others have or do.

8. Failure is a necessary component of success

Strive for success, but don't expect it to knock on your door the first time. You will always fail. This will show you where you went wrong. That lesson will help you in your future endeavors. Recognizing your failures will eventually lead to success.

9. Allow your heart to speak every now and then

You're probably tired of seniors telling you to “use your brain rather than your heart.” However, it is sometimes preferable to use your heart rather than your brain. For example, my daughter had a fever the other day early in the morning. Her fever had subsided by the time she had to go to daycare, and she was enjoying herself.

My mind was telling me that she was fine and that you could go to work. But my heart refused to leave her. I ended up listening to my brain (which is wise, isn't it?). By the fourth hour at my office, I received a call saying that my daughter's fever had returned and that I needed to come in right away. Little decisions like this in life necessitate the use of one's heart as well. If your heart tells you to do it, I believe you can. Take a chance and see where it takes you.

10. Do not forget to laugh aloud (lol)

Making jokes and laughing until you snort is an important part of life. You have more than enough time to enjoy life. Being 30 is never regarded as being old enough to take life seriously. You can easily be silly in front of your peers. Do something that makes you laugh and makes you fall in love with life. We are still young enough to enjoy life to the fullest!
