Answer for question 4530.

Benjamin Franklin said "Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five." Do you think this sentiment is true -- that a lot of people are just existing in their life rather than really living it? Has this ever been true for you? What things do you do to try to bring new things, people, and experiences into your life?
There is an element of truth in that statement. I think many try to follow the pattern of settling down, having children etc.

I think it is when you challenge yourself that you become alive. For instance, in my early forties, I went to China for a package tour; mid forties I restarted my education and eventually begin a degree etc. Doing things that would be unthinkable in my teens, twenties and thirties because either I had family obligations, or was just plain too scared.

In some respects, as you get older, things can only look up :-)
