Most people think that reaching the age of 30 is something to be dreaded, but it’s actually something to be excited about. Here are some reasons you should look forward to being 30.

You know who you are.
You probably spent most of your 20s trying to figure out who you were and what you wanted in life. Now that you’re about to turn 30, and after a few wrong turns, you finally know what you want and have established yourself well enough. You have mastered your style and have understood how you deal with certain things or people around you.

You know what you want when it comes to dating.
After a series of great and not-so-great dates with different kinds of people, you’ve figured out what you’re really looking for in a guy. You’re way past the uncommitted flirting here and there and are actually thinking of settling down when you’ve found The One.

The stability it gives.
When you’ve achieved a certain level of stability in your career, finances, or life in general, you’ll feel more grounded and will be able to handle things better compared to when you were in your 20s. You have enough life experiences to help you get through anything that comes your way.

It’s a chance to start over.
You shouldn’t be afraid of turning 30; it’s a brand new decade to start a brand new you. If you weren’t happy with the things you did when you were younger, now is the time to set things right. Meet up with an old friend, apologize to a "frenemy," or spend more time with your parents. It’s the perfect time to make things right.

Being more mature.
Because of the things you’ve gone through in the past, you are now wiser and stronger. You know which things are worth worrying over and which are worth letting go. We're talking about unnecessary things at home, toxic relationships, or office politics. You have no time for drama since you’re too busy with things that really matter.
