Turning 50 is a huge milestone birthday for everyone. It causes you to reflect on the years that have past and re-evaluate what you think is important and what is not so that you can make the most of (hopefully) the next 50 years. And a huge part of this process is adjusting your mindset to match that which you now know to be true. It’s amazing how fifty years of experience can mold your thoughts.
For me, turning 50 means letting go of some things. Things I can not change. Turning 50 also means realizing and embracing those things that you still have time to change. It is not too late. As long as you have breath, you must live life as fully as you can.
I hope you find the benefits of the following sayings and share these memes so that other women turning 50 can realize that fifty is not a bad f word.
