Your 20s matter. Don't waste them.

I'll admit, I've been putting off watching this video. There was just so much else to do, what with a baby coming any day now! But when I finally did, I knew all of you needed to see this, if you haven't already.

Meg Jay: Why 30 is Not the New 20

If you're in your twenties, don't put it off like I did. Watch it today or this weekend.

Why? 

Because your twenties matter. A lot.

They can make the difference between a mediocre life and an exceptional adventure. They're not ten years to get through before you really start living in your 30s. 

Claiming your twenties can actually be one of the most transformative times in your life for work, personal growth, and love.

All the relationship talk that takes place on this blog isn't for you to store away for "Someday," for when you're ready to "Settle Down." It's for today. For helping you learn to be intentional in your dating and relationships now, because it will matter down the road.

Meg Jay happens to agree with me on this one:

"The best time to work on your marriage is before you have one."

Whether you've just hit 20, you're fresh out of college, or looking at only a couple of years left to this decade, claim it and make something of it. Take risks at work, be intentional in your relationships and start living the life you want. 

Who says we have to wait until 30 to start living?
