Our 20s and 30s are not easy. Our early 20s start with us starting to take on more responsibilities and being independent. As the years pass, the responsibilities are more and harder, which makes us feel that like these years are nothing but difficult and so we want them to go by quickly. However, how many times have you heard someone older say that regret not enjoying their 20s and 30s? I've heard it a lot! In fact, I saw a video on Facebook featuring women in their 60s, wishing they could go back in time just so they could do and enjoy the simple things in life, the same things we all overlook today. Always remember to enjoy the little things in life and to live life to the fullest. So, as a reminder to live a happy life, here are 25 things to do in your twenties and thirties to help you fully enjoy life.
