Does Life Begin at 30? 40? 50?

As a nation, we tend to make a big deal out of age. When it comes to milestones, we’re supposed to have achieved certain things by certain ages and sometimes this seemingly tick-box exercise can be really draining. If you don’t have a mortgage, or children, or a career by certain ages then the media will have you believe that you’ve not achieved what you are supposed to have done; and that is enough to leave anyone feeling bad!

When Does Life Begin?

One of the big things we do is concentrate on life milestones – life begins at 30! You really know yourself when you’re 40! Wait until you’re 50, you won’t look back! However, I’m not sure I’m a big fan of this way of thinking, because really life can start whenever you want and you can achieve whatever you want, when you want and there are no rules.

The truth is that, if you are in the right mindset – life begins today! If there is something you want to change, or something new that you want to try – today could very well be the day you make that happen!

Making The Best Of Your Life

Whether you’re considering life after 50 years old, you’re approaching 40 and you’re not sure what to do next or you are about to turn 21 and are scared about the prospect of a whole life in front of you, the best thing you can do is simply embrace life and live your best one.

As most of you will know, I’m not a big fan of rules and therefore I simply am an advocate for doing what you want and when. If this does mean that you embrace a big milestone birthday like turning 50 and use this as an excuse to try a new hobby or go on a new adventure, then I say go for it! However, if you’re no where near a milestone birthday then why put it off? Go get that new adventure today! You have nothing to lose!

Finding New Things To Try

If you are at a stage where you want to try something new then why not get some inspiration online? Pinterest is full of crafting ideas and hobbies that you can try. Instagram is full of holiday destinations if you want to travel somewhere new and bloggers are always talking about their latest hobbies and adventures. Thanks to the internet and social media, we have a whole world at our finger tips full of ideas and inspiration so make sure you make the most of them!

So, although I am not one for New Years Resolutions, and we’re well on the way to being done with January (YAY) if there is something you have been considering trying in the future why not make 2019 the year that you make it happen? It doesn’t have to be your 50th birthday this year, you don’t have to be turning 60  - just embrace it and make it happen, what are you waiting for?
