Having come this far where life matters are concerned, being in your 50s could mean finding most of life’s financial struggles behind you. This is because you have likely accumulated a financial cushion to give you the freedom to pursue your interests.

If this is not the case for you, your 50s is an ideal time to start making progress. For instance, turning 50 could mean taking advantage of catch-up contributions to boost your retirement savings since you now have fewer responsibilities.

12. Saying No Becomes Easier

Hitting the five-decade milestone means that you get to live life on your terms. This is regardless of whether the people around you are supportive or not. As a result, how and when to say no is clearer and easier.

Similarly, saying yes to things also becomes easier. With 50 comes a “why-not attitude.” Allowing yourself to live life on your terms is the best gift you can ever give to yourself.
