I once heard about a survey where people basically said each subsequent decade of their life was their happiest; the elderly were happiest and thought their most recent years were their best. I guess once you've racked up accomplishments, seen your kids grow into real people, and gained a lifetime of insight, things get pretty rad.
I'm about to turn 20 and I already feel relatively accomplished and happy and fulfilled, although I have immediate plans to do more with myself. But at this rate, I'll be happier than Santa getting laid on his birthday when I'm an old man
Reflect on your 20s and motivate yourself to a handful (maybe 5-10) of positive, healthy life-changes you could make. Not just daily details... think big about where you've gone and plan to have a better, more enjoyable entry into your 40s.
I'm turning 30 this month. Not sure yet how I feel about it. I remember panicking about turning 20
I've dealt with a lot of past baggage stuff in my twenties, had a depression, job-hopped a lot, not really knowing how to make things work for myself. The only thing I really feel that I did (which I did when I was 18) was build a life with someone. I've been working on the groundwork of changing myself for 3 years now. Man, does it take a lot of work. But..this year, I'm seeing the results. I quit my job, organized a move abroad(me organizing?!), and am starting a new life in a different country. I also did all the legwork to start my own project/job and I'm also preparing for a personal project...one I've been struggling with on how to get a handle on it for over 10 years. Let's hope that 30 *is* that magical age everyone says it is where you get this shit finally DONE.
