For many of us, the closer we get to thirty the stronger a feeling of loss takes over. The realization that our lives have flashed by. What have you accomplished? How much have you grown? All throughout our twenties, we struggled to find a balance between adulthood responsibilities and trying to keep ahold of our passions. The twenty decade was a time of self-discovery and exploration. Building a foundation for the rest of our lives. Learning to be independent, build meaningful relationships and a career to support a future family.
