Lessons Learned After Your 20s

Have you ever looked back over you 20s wondering if they had any meaning whatsoever?  The author of the following article did: 

Over the last few months, in the midst of panicking about not having a damn plan, I started to build a list of some lessons that came with my first decade of adulthood. My experiences began to feel more valuable as I considered what each of them taught me. As it grew, this list became a cozy reminder that even though my twenties seemed fleeting, they were actually full of personal growth. It helped my recent transition to 30 feel less like I had been mugged at gun point and robbed of my youth against my will, and more like a graceful step in the right direction wearing trendy, comfortable, ergonomically agreeable flats.

So, in case society is wondering, I do have a damn plan: to be too busy defining 30 to let 30 define me.

In my opinion, real lessons of life you learn after crossing 35, this is the time when suddenly it dawns on you that you are getting older and you start treasure whatever you have and become sure of the direction in which you are heading, which involves your career, personal life, kids and spiritual growth. Most of the people in the 20s take their life for granted and live in a brash manner, with out realizing long term implications.
