I turned forty last month. And in the months leading up to it, I began to reflect on who I was, who I wanted to be, and the things that bring me meaning and contentment. (I think my January column evidences these sentiments.)

One of my best friends also turned forty a couple of months ago. She was nonchalant and serene about the milestone. In her mind, fifty is the big milestone—the one where hopefully you have realized your potential and have achieved many of your big goals, but where you still have much to look forward to. Indeed, for most people, happiness tends to be higher earlier and later in life. Researchers found that for women, life happiness hits a low around the age of forty and then begins rise after that (for men, life happiness hits a low around fifty and then rises again).1 So, hopefully, the best is yet to come!
