50 Life Changing Realizations After Turning 50

Save this post to read later:

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.

I probably turned the big 50 before you, January 2015. I really liked "time moves on even if you don't". it's a huge reality when you lose the one's you love. and "knowing your flaws can be your best asset". I think that's what makes us wiser. I'm glad I found this post.

My favorite: The only thing that's constant is change. And that "asking for help" thing? ...that's still difficult for me to manage. ugh! Great list!

Asking for help is a tough one for me too Karen. I have always been so independent that it sometimes makes me feel like a failure but I know that is just me and I need to get over it.
