I’m 30, Now What?! is a discovery through the perception of women born between 1977 - 1987. At the time of writing this book, we are in our thirties. There is something about our generation that never quite fit in a traditional sense. Our authors are from, or have lived in, Canada, USA, Turkey, Germany, Barcelona, and Europe, yet there is a common feeling of displacement across the globe within our “lost” generation. We were the first generation to have vast choices around education, career, and our role in the household. We were able to stumble off the traditional path, and survive. We were raised in a very transitional phase from single to dual income households, and grew up during the rise of broken-homes. We saw war for its true colors - an industry and not an act of “freedom,” the creation of the internet and watching it “burst,” followed by an economic, banking, and housing crash. We also saw positive change: rapid gentrification, spirituality, equal rights, gay rights and same-sex marriage, the-everyday-feminist and females running the workplace, male nurses, stay at home dads, and moms to mompreneurs to childless-women-by-choice finding commonalities outside of mommyhood. As adults, we view diversity and open-mindedness as our way of life. We didn’t start all these trends, but we are the outcome. We were born to be a generation of change; a generation of options. Maybe instead of being the lost generation, we were the born - Choice Makers. Yet, we don’t fully own this… We CAN choose a life outside of a cookie cutter mold, and we have the right to be unapologetic when doing so. This book is a heavy, controversial eye-opener, while being a tool for healing, growth, owning your power, and embracing choice.
