For many women, hitting 30 sounds like a disaster, and they believe that the best part of their life is over. However, being 30 is not that bad after all. Many have survived it. You need to embrace age with grace, and make sure that you are prepared for the challenges ahead. In your 20s you can do things that might not be appropriate for 30-something. You will need to become more responsible, achieve financial and job security, and have a long-term plan that will improve your life every day. Below you will find a few things you should take care of before you hit 30.

Our 20s are going down in history as the years we were the most careless, foolish, and had the most fun. Enjoy this time while it lasts. Go to concerts, see your favorite player in the theatre as many times as you want, and party through the weekends. After you hit 30, you might not have the time or the energy to do it. While in your 20s you are less responsible, you will learn a lot from the friendships you make and the experiences. The good news is that your 30s brain will be more careful.

  1. Weed Through Your Friends

You will have to look through your friend’s list, and see whether or not you can still connect with individuals. Chances are that you have some friends you haven’t seen since college, and you have drifted apart. You might be still holding on to them, instead of looking for people you have more in common. As your values change you will need to change your friendships gradually, too.

  1. Choose Your Personal Mission

In your 30s you will also need to develop your personal mission statement. You need to have a clear direction in life, and choose your career. By the time you are 30, you might have long term career goals; whether you are a marketing assistant and would like to develop to become an executive in the next few years, or set up your own business. Take a step back and reflect on the various paths ahead.

4. Build a Social Circle

You will also need to be more careful who you associate with in your 30s. Choose people who have the same values and personal missions, and are able to give you useful advice. Get rid of people who simply want to take advantage of you, and choose your circle according to your interest and your qualifications, future goals.

5. Have Your Finances In Order

It is also crucial that you shape up your finances before you hit 30, so it will be easier for you to get on the property ladder and settle down. Get out of debt and consolidate your accounts, so you can budget in a more responsible way.

Whenever you think of hitting 30 as an end of your youth, think about the opportunities ahead, and get ready for the challenges of real adulthood.
