When I was young I used to be a carefree person. Loed to go out with friends and party anywhere. I never worry about tomorrow. On my 40th birhtday inside my room. I caught myself crying and asking myself where am I? Who am I now? What did I do with my life? Ireached more than half my life but it seems I have nothing to call my own. Nothing to passed on to my love ones. It is true that life begins at 40. It is the time wherein you assess what you have done in your life.

Hello Mister Plus. If I hadn't gone through your discussions, I wouldn't have known that I was not the only person who had something in mind about reaching forty. I had the same feeling as you had. I just had a terrible feeling at forty thinking that I was an old man. Now I am glad that I don't have that feeling again. I think that it is good to be forty and I am still enjoying my happy life with a lot of fun. I think that it is reasonable to say that 'Life begins at forty.' It is time for us to know more about what life is and how we can live a better life. We cannot always expect to be young, but if you feel young in your heart, then you are young however old you are. I hope that you are ok now about the age forty, dear Mister Plus.

To be forty is a big deal for a man to concentrate more on what has to be done.

Planning for the future is not a bad thing.
