Okay 40 it is, and so it begins.
First of all, it is just a saying because it is assumed at this age, you have gained enough experience, learned from the past, and (probably for some) financially stable.
So, what did I learned? I have listed some personal quotes, if I may say, to describe (??) things I have learned in the past, and will probably be learning as time goes
Every person is special and unique, so don’t be sad nor frustrated if you’re not like them.
It is normal to admire or adore other people, their looks, their actions, how other people “like” them. But let it be just an admiration, don’t be a trying hard to be them. Most of the time, trying to be NOT you, put you to a more embarrassing situation.
Not everything you wished for will be granted to you… exactly the way you wanted it. You’ll be surprised its more than you bargain for
Many of us wish and pray of something (or even someone), but ending up to something (or someone) we didn’t expect. Be thankful still, ever thought that something (or someone) is not really meant for you to begin with?
You may see them smiling and living life at its best, but looks can be deceiving… You’ll never know what lies behind those smiles – a long list of debts; a life-long loan payments.

It may have seemed they are successful than you are, don’t be jealous. God has a different plan for you.
I’m not that of a religious person, but I do believe on this… You should too.
Ok you’re hurt, it sucks! you made a mistake, so? Cry. Cry harder if that will help you… then ACCEPT. It is only then you can move on.
You are a human, just like anyone else. You get hurt, you make mistake, sometimes you even fail… all those pain is what will make you become strong, to be a better person. It is better to experience and know the pain of losing, that way, you know when and how to get up and move on.
