“The great thing about getting older is that you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been.” Madeleine L’Engle
I love that quote. Any other Madeleine L’Engle fans?
So today is my birthday. In my last post I wrote about what I’ve learned about millennials since blogging about them. I thought about making this post something like “10 things I learned in my 20s” but since I have one more year left in my twenties, I think I’ll skip that.
One thing I have noticed though about turning 29 (and looking 30 right in the face) is that I feel incredibly young. But I no longer feel like a kid. And that’s a good thing. It makes me feel like I’ve used the last decade well.
Which leads me to share this great TED Talks by Meg Jay “Why 30 is not the New 20”. Some take-aways of the “talk” are:
1. The urban tribe is overrated.
2. Get some “identity capital.”
3. The time to start picking your family is now.
Check it out! It’s great advice. I can say that now as someone who is 29.
