Are you by chance in your 30’s? If so, think back to your 20’s. They weren’t the greatest, right? Probably filled with life lessons, and perhaps a margarita-too-many on occasion. If you’re currently in your 20’s and are feeling the stress of trying to figure it all out, just know that that’s pretty common — it can be a super fun decade, but it’s also emotionally rough. And if Kelly Clarkson thinks this is true, it must be true. I mean, we knew Clarkson best when she was in her 20’s. She was 20 when she won the first season of American Idol!


Now our fave singer is 34, and has a husband and children to look after — River Rose, and her new 5-month-old son Remy, to be specific, as well as two stepchildren. And supposedly the lessons she’s learned through motherhood have really helped put things into perspective for her.


Huh. We totally get it, but don’t want her to forget that she penned the anthem of many heartbroken women, “Since U Been Gone”, during this timeframe. If anything, she made our 20’s a little easier with those powerful vocals!

The good news is, Clarkson thinks that things just get better and better the older you get.

So, whenever you’re feeling down or out-of-control at the age of 23, just remember — they can still be productive years. Just look at Kelly Clarkson.
