Ibinabo Fiberesima also said she thought she will be happily married by now, living on a hatch and travelling round the world.

She wrote;

“The past decade led me through a litany of lessons that defined my being. My 40s oversaw a period of struggle, failure and painful loss, but it also assured, enlightened and made me more confident and blessed. Through that time, I recognized my strength and capabilities, rediscovered myself and my potential, optimized my goals and have learned to prioritize what and who is truly important to me.

I can’t believe I am 50 (… and thriving)! It’s still so surreal to me. But I’m careful in my joy, for milestone birthdays unwittingly steer you towards a terrified list of yet unaccomplished goals, the possibility of perceived retrogression, unhealthy comparisons, faltering timelines et al. Yes, I thought I’d be happily married by now, living on a yacht and travelling the world, amidst other cares, but it’s easy to forget LIFE IS STILL AN OPEN DOOR, for many went even before they came.

So I choose to reflect on what I have accomplished in my 50 years and how fortunate I am to be rich with life, with love, with family and with friends.

There is so much more to life than the glam or an eye watering bank balance. Today I celebrate self awareness, physical and mental strength. Today I celebrate the fact that I’ve fallen deeply in love with myself and the self image from my mirror reflects a bolder, more beautiful woman.
Above all I am grateful to God for this life He has blessed me with. In 50 years, I’ve accomplished so much. I’m continuously growing, and I know I still have much to learn. I’ve waited all my life to say this and I thank God for the grace to finally say with conviction that truly…

‘Life begins @ 50!’
