30 Is Not The New 20


Hey all you 20 somethings, watch this video. I even watched it (ahem I'm no long a 20 something and am now 31) and I'm like yeah, that's a good video. Plus, she's talking to you. 


It just might inspire you to look at things a little differently. Boyfriends, jobs, how you spend your free time. I totally related to a point she made about dating a guy "just because" even though you knew he would never be "the one". I broke up with that exact guy on our 1 year anniversary because I hated that I had wasted a year with him (that sounds bad, he really wasn't a bad guy). But 2 months later I met Josh. Not that everyone should meet their true love at the ripe age of 24 like I did, because I don't necessarily think that at all. But just consider what Meg Jay has to say.

What a great message…even for us 30-somethings! :) Thanks for sharing!

I'm a 30 something too but I thought this video was awesome. I think its the message a lot of 20 somethings need to hear. I have quite a few friends who have made bad decisions just to fit in a major milestone before 30 and now regret it.

This is an excellent video for all of us 20 and 30 somethings-- so glad you shared. I will be sharing with some of the girls in my life as well!

I DID cry! I love this. I had watched half of it when a friend posted it on Twitter, and now I can say I've watched the whole thing. And, I am so happy I did. This was amazing. Thanks so much for sharing!! I've now tweeted it as well :) Hopeful that more 20-somethings will watch this and be inspired.

Thanks for sharing this. I'm afraid it made me a bit panicky as a 29 year old, but it also inspired me!

Ahh this video scares me. I'm 22 (almost 23) and I've been trying to put everything together like she says but sometimes I just feel paralyzed! She's not lying about it being a pivotal time of change, but change terrifies me! Here's hoping I can figure it out.
