A note to the reader:
If you are among the 50 million North Americans who will turn 50 during the next 10 years, Fifty Things To Do When You Turn Fifty might just be the thing that enables you to approach the experience with optimism rather than dread. In fact, after reading it, I would go so far as to say no one should attempt to turn 50 until they’ve read this book! I should know. I turned 50 several years ago, before the book was available, and the experience almost caused me to come unglued.
The artists, pundits, and experts who contributed essays have offered a wealth of practical information, to be sure. When taken collectively, the book comprises a veritable instruction manual for how to turn 50, everything from how to readjust your stock portfolio to how to readjust your underwear (to allow for more breathing room… wearing comfortable clothing is, after all, a privilege that you have more than earned by now).
But the practical information, as useful as it is, is not the most valuable aspect of this book. Rather, it is the hopeful, upbeat feeling you are left with after reading what each of the authors has to say about his or her big 5-0 experience. The underlying message is: relax, now that you’re 50, you don’t have to prove yourself anymore.
Take care of yourself, get your house in order, and these will be the best years of your life. I think you’ll agree that this is a message anyone turning 50 will find both soothing and encouraging!
