I am 38, and in few time I will be 40 years old. I cannot think how much time I have lived so far, but me fear is to become old before I can enjoy my life. What do you think about this, do you think life really begins at 40?

I really do believe that life begins at 40. Although only if you keep yourself fit and healthy. When you know more, and can still do what you have been doing up until now, then I believe you can be your happiest. It's a matter of being willing to live life to the fullest. When you keep active and your basic needs have already been taken care of there's just nothing you can't do when your 40+. Trust me, I'm 53 and I wouldn't want to go back to a time when I didn't know then what I know now. Keep going strong.

I might sound a lil philosophical but there is no age bar for enjoying life..For me there are still many years to get to 40..but 40 is also pretty young and you can actually take charge of your life and do all those things that will give you joy and happiness..

I'm 21 right now and I think that I've already had a lot happen in my life. Too much has happened to me to say that my life will start when I am 40. Maybe my real life and all the good stuff will start happening to me when I'm 40 (but hopefully before then).
