Why 30 is Not the New 20 – TED Talk

This TED Talk has been making the rounds on Facebook and Twitter, but I didn’t get around to watching it until this morning. Its message feels very timely for me, since I am a 20-something, and since I officially received my undergraduate degree yesterday afternoon, surrounded by my beloved family and friends. I’m so excited but so nervous about what my 20s will hold, and before you ask – no, I have no real plans. Her talk really resonated with me: I’ve got to consciously, carefully craft the life I want for myself, and I’ve got to make it all count. Last year at this time, the idea of graduating positively sent me into a panic. But right now? I feel like it’s all going to work out just fine, eventually. I’m going to be (we’re all going to be) okay.
