What do you know in your 30s that you didn’t know in your 20s?
It’s Friday night and for the first time in months I had a whole evening to myself. I chose to spend it catching up on Oprah that had been recorded over the past few weeks.
The episode I just finished watching was about women in their thirties –
My favorite part of the show was at the very end Oprah asked a few women …
“What do you know in your thirties that you didn’t know in your twenties?”
These were the answers that spoke to me:
- “I think one of the things that I know now is that life is life. So, you just have to kind of go with the flow and go with your gut, go with your instincts and not hold on to bad experiences and bad people too long waiting for them to change or evolve into something else. You just need to move on and count it all as a lesson.” – DeChane
- “The one thing I have learned in my thirties that I did not know in my twenties is how valuable my friendships are … Once you are sucked into your thirties and trying to figure out where your life is going, it’s the friends that really make the difference in your world.” – Molly
- Oprah’s closing thoughts: “There is a common thread that runs between us all … We all have the same desire to be valued regardless of where we come from or what we may be going through, and to love the people most important in our lives and that is our connection to each other. So I say thank you.”
