Turning thirty for me like most people was so scary accompanied by mixed feelings. What makes it more difficult is how Society displays hitting thirty without accomplishing certain things in life as missing the deadline. If you are thirty and are not married yet or at least in a serious relationship if you have no children or still haven’t been promoted, then there is something wrong with you and you need to hurry up before it’s too late.
I believe that each stage you pass through has its beauty and lessons that you learn from.
Every stage sure is different, but it’s not different in the chances, opportunities and time to do many things. There is no time limit to get married, have a child, get your dream job, house…etc.
Every stage requires certain decisions to be taken to have a prosperous future:
When hitting your thirties you need to decrease parting and start making different decisions that will positively impact your future.

There are myths related to being in your thirties, one of the famous ones is that you will make fewer mistakes during this time. This isn’t necessarily true, each stage has its lessons that you learn from and participate in your evolution and development.
Enjoy your life in your thirties gain more control over your life to a more secure and happy future.
