Why age of 30 is crucial for everyone's life? Is this the time of turn and twist?
I think that this is the age when many people begin to believe they are no longer young, but it is all in the mind and your choices. Life throws twists and turns at us all and it can only get better or worse depending upon our choices, preparation, and how we react.
For some people, 30 is the age of a shift in thinking, goals, and attitudes, for others, it could be years or even decades later. For others it might be years younger.
I think there are a number of reasons why 30 marks a turning point for adults' lives.
By that age, most people have been a part of the workforce for about ten years, and they may be discovering that they're not as successful as they'd dreamed they'd be. They're no longer feeling excited about joining the world of "grownups" like they did as teens, and the excitement of their new career has worn off as their responsibilities (and debts) have grown. It's a time when they may feel stagnant and wanting change, but haven't figured out how to make that happen.
An interesting sidenote is that in astrology, the planet Saturn takes about 28 years to complete its orbit around the sun. That means that it's near the same position when you're 30 as it was when you were born, which astrologers would say produces a sobering effect that lasts for several years and places a lot of focus on responsibilities, restrictions, and duty.
I personally believe we place way too much significance on turning 30. I believe this so intensely that it was the second Hub I ever wrote. I think ultimately it just comes down to social constructs. If you look at most other cultures you will see a wide range of significant ages and very few of them mark 30 as terribly important or life changing. And why should it be? Turning 44 can be just as amazing as turning 14. Certainly turning 30 can and should be even better than turning 9. It’s about the freedom and optimism you give to the years of your life, not imaginary self-imposed restrictions and limitations. “I’m too old to (fill in the blank)” should be erased from our vocabulary.
