30 Things To Do When You Turn 30 - Making The Most Of Your Milestone Birthday
30 Things To Do When You Turn 30 is part of a successful series of books focused on milestone birthdays. Each book in this series offers musings, reflections, and advice from well known contributors intended to make the milestone birthday it celebrates more meaningful (and fun). Turning thirty is, without question, an important milestone . . . a time when many decide it’s time to get down to business and figure out what the rest of their lives should look like. Better than just a bunch of balloons, this book offers meaningful advice and insight from those who've been there, on getting the most from the days ahead.
The various contributors to this book offer their insights, guidance, and honest admissions about their own processes and experiences of turning 30.
"As I write this review, my 30th birthday is less than 2 weeks away and I have been dealing with a plethora of emotions. It seems as if this book made its way to me at just the right time. The essays were short, but to-the-point, and while I didn't agree with the perspective of each person by the close I felt comforted and encouraged. Ready to embrace my new identifier.
It's not particularly deep and I read it in an afternoon curled up on my couch. But I'm glad I picked it up.
There were two essays that spoke to me in particular, "Take Stock" by Leigh Standley and "Leave Behind Traditional Ways of Thinking" by Tamara Conniff. Both women speak on being open and confident and allowing yourself to be present in your 30s. If I only take one thing away from this book I hope it is that lesson--to learn to enjoy life as it unfolds instead of living in a constant state of "what if."
