25 THINGS YOU’LL EXPERIENCE ABOUT LIFE AFTER 25

Every decade has its own set of happy moments and challenges, and as you near your 30s, not only will you feel excited about starting a new chapter of your life, but you’ll feel some sadness as you wave goodbye to one of the most epic decade of your life, your 20s, while being appreciative of all you’ve learned.

Here are 25 things you’ll experience about life after 25:

The world is not at all rosy, or fair, or completely good or completely bad

Words and ideas have consequences, and realizing this makes you more mindful of what you say or think

You probably won’t have it all figured out, but you’ll be comforted by the knowledge that everything will work out

You’ll be more settled in who you are

You’ll have a clearer vision of what you want to do with your life

You’re a professional with valuable work experience. High 5!

You’re either thinking about pursuing that second, third, fourth degree, or you’re doing it already

You’ve probably changed careers as you’ve let go of fear and started pursuing your dreams

And doing this is quite the costly exercise as you experience a a cut in salary and the perks of a comfortable and steady job

You’re either an entrepreneur or on the road to pursuing entrepreneurship

You take calculated risks and less haphazard ones as you realize that you have actual responsibilities

Life becomes more expensive as you grow older

Your days of paying rent are either over or coming to an end as you become wealthy enough to be a home owner

Attending baby showers, bridal showers, bachelor parties and weddings are a norm

You’re probably married with at least one child

And if you aren’t, you’re in a stable relationship with someone you’re building a future with

Breakups are even more horrible because you prepare yourself to be with someone that you love for the long run

You read a lot more parenting blogs and websites now

You’re okay with your friendship circles being small because you value quality relationships over having millions of people in your life

You value chilled out weekends, either by yourself or with family and friends, over partying and drinking all night

You actually use weekends to recuperate from the hectic work week, which is now a constant feature in your life

Leading a healthy lifestyle is your priority as you realize that being healthy is important

You discover the awesomeness of solo travel

You begin to value experiences over material things

You realize that success is so much more holistic than having lots of money. It includes mental, physical and emotional health, family, friends and content with work and who you are.

  1. I can totally relate to to the part about following your dreams. I’m at a point where I really need to decide if what I’m putting my energy into is actually worth it!

      1. I feel you! For example, working really hard on blogging! It takes a lot of dedication and effort. Unfortunately, sometimes we can’t fully know our paths until we’ve made a few wrong turns.

  2. These two items rang true for me: You’re either thinking about pursuing that second, third, fourth degree, or you’re doing it already and Breakups are even more horrible because you prepare yourself to be with someone that you love for the long run. It’s amazing how quickly time passes. I’ve taken great lengths to force myself to slow down and be present.

  3. Great read! All of these are true because I can relate! Thanks for sharing Ladylebz!
