This April I turn 35. It’s crazy that when I started this blog I was 25 and here I am about to turn 35. I feel like my 20s were a time I was really getting to know myself and what I wanted. My 30’s have been a time of really learning to love myself more. It has also been a time of learning what I need to let go of. These are 11 things to let go of in your 30’s you may want to think about.
11 Things To Let Go Of In Your 30’s
The number on the scale: This is something I am still trying to let go of, and honestly I think until I just get rid of having a scale this will haunt me. I wish (and I challenge you) that I could just focus on how I feel in clothes instead of the number.
Anyone who brings you down: This is something I think covers a variety of areas. I think on social media you can’t follow people who bring you down or make you feel less than or bad about yourself. I also think that in your life you can’t surround yourself with people who bring you down. If they aren’t cheering you on they don’t belong in your life.
Stuff you wore in your 20s that you would never wear again: Recently I did a MAJOR closet clean out (more on that soon) and could not believe that I had a dress from 2007 that I had not worn in at least 8 years. Thank you, next.
College t-shirts: If you’ve been out of college for a decade maybe, say goodbye to the sorority and fraternity shirts.
Sleeping with makeup on: This is something we should NEVER do in our teens, 20s, or 30s! But especially in your 30s. It is HORRIBLE for your skin!
Not eating veggies: We are too old to pull the whole “I hate veggies” thing. There are so many delicious ways to cook them! Find one you like.
Trying to be a people pleaser: I am the worst about saying no. My motto for 2019 is “if it’s not a f*** yeah it’s a no.” You can’t please everything and you can’t pour from an empty cup!
A career that makes you miserable: If you hate your job, start looking for a new one. You are still too young to be miserable!
Debt: I am not talking about a house payment, car payment, or student loan. I am talking about racking up credit card debt. If you can’t pay for it right now you don’t need it.
Negative self-talk: I wish I could be perfect at this. I wish I could do this all the time but one thing I try really hard to do is not be too down on myself.
Unhealthy habits: Not sleeping enough, not eating healthy, not having balance, not exercising, spending time with the wrong people. Terrible habits like these need to be gone!
