Turning 30 is a milestone and one that needs to be celebrated! It’s a decade of new perspectives, changing careers, developments in personal life, and a whole lot of self-learning. While all this sounds stressful, everyone who’s been there will tell you it’s the best phase of your life! And sometimes, all you need is a little empowerment and a smidge of inspiration to get you excited about the prospects of a new chapter in your life.
That’s why we’re giving you 3 poems you must read before you turn 30!
Relatable title, isn’t it? Most of our 20s have passed by sitting in unmoving cars, waiting for the vehicles to move along, hoping you could be anywhere but there at that moment. Well, this poem has a different perspective on being one among hundreds stuck in stand-still traffic, that makes you think twice before wishing for time to pass you by.
Ever since graduating college, we’ve been encouraged to be one among those who pride themselves on being a part of ‘the grind’. Coffee culture, toxic workplace practices, and doing overtime – it’s all been glorified for far too long. We’re at the stepping stone of a new phase in our lives now, how long is this going to seem appealing?
Sunday mornings: sweet breakfast, undisturbed naps, mindless television. Sounds perfect right now. Late nights and loud ragers don’t sound so attractive anymore, and after a long week of work and meetings, is there anything else you’d rather to than find yourself bundled under countless comforters, snuggled up to pillows, doing nothing but enjoying the sweet sound of silence? If yes, well then, welcome to your 30s.
Do you feel like this is a new, intimidating chapter in your life that’s starting too soon? Or are you still processing the rollercoaster that was your 20s? Whatever it is, life doesn’t wait for anyone! So, buckle up, enjoy the ride and make the most of it – things are never going to be the same again.
