30 Things Working Moms Should Know By The Time They Hit 30
Work is important, but it is not your identity.
For the first time in your life, being a student didn’t define you. For a while, working and paying off those student loan debts may have. It can take time and a serious amount of effort for young women to establish themselves in professional careers, time and effort that can feel like it’s taken over every aspect of life. Your friends were co-workers. Your nemeses probably were, too. By the time you’re 30, you’ve learned that you are not your job. In fact, your job would go on without you, with someone else taking your place, if it all went sideways. It’s something you do, but it’s not who you are. It’s just one piece of the greater puzzle.
