What does it mean being Fifty Plus?
Life begins at fifty or fifty plus! 😉
I have contributed to the “Having it all at Fifty Plus ebook” and as a co-author I’m happy today to offer you my free chapter of the book (keep reading). You also find a list of the other co-authors quotes and a note from the editor.
Here is a short excerpt of my chapter:
“…There is nothing that cannot be changed in life. No matter what your age is, your status, your sex, your physical and mental conditions are. Change can be embraced at any time in life. Being fifty is probably the best catalyst that can help you to step forward in the right direction see things from a different perspective.
Reflecting over what you have achieved in life gives you the necessary strength to go down a path, to pursue a dream, a project, a life-changing goal. And who knows where this path is going to lead us. When you decide what you want to do, think of all the decisions, steps and actions, they are an investment in your future. The investment you make today in yourself, will dictate how healthy, happy and successful your older life will be.”
Michela Fantinel, Co-Author

A note from the Editor of Having it all at Fifty Plus
“As we go through the different phases of life our new perspective can bring about not only thought-provoking changes mentally but also physical ones too. To many of us this is frequently known of as a mid-life crisis. Often this crisis manifests itself as the fear of the unknown. An irrational yet almost tangible fear that holds us back from reaching those dizzy heights of our full potential. Having It All At Fifty Plus has been written by contributors from all over the world, and from many different backgrounds.
This book will give you an insight into their individual journey’s and some of the challenges they have had to overcome. For some a change in mind-set is all that’s needed as reaching fifty should be a time to celebrate. It’s a time to remember that there are so many that have not made it this far. Some of us use this time as ‘me time.’ Now the family has grown it may be the perfect time to start the business we have always dreamt about. For others it’s travelling and enriching our lives by experiencing other cultures.
On the more physical side, how do you cope with the changes that the menopause forces upon us? How do we cope with the changes in our strength and physical agility? Having It All At Fifty Plus answers many of these questions while, at the same time, providing valuable gems of inspiration that proves that the fifties is truly the ‘I can’ generation. If you are looking for creative ideas on how to welcome being fifty plus then Having It All At Fifty Plus is essential reading. By taking action and always being ready to learn more about ourselves the transition to this next phase in our life can be the best one yet.”
