Everyone lives once only. Though all of us have plenty of dreams and goals, it usually ends up with nothing done. And a number of us end up just fulfilling what others want, but not what we truly enjoy. 50 is a critical age that we’re only left with half of the time, if we’re fortunate enough to live to 100. So why not do what you want and what can make you happy as soon as possible?

Here are 40 inspiring things that worth a try before you turn 50.

1) Go to see your favorite band.

2) Forgive someone from your past. Holding on to bitterness is like buying poison and taking it yourself, so forgive them – even if it is only for your benefit.

3) Cut out any toxic friends you have. They will never change, and you don’t need that negativity.

4) Go on holiday with your best friends. Even if it is just one night away in the country it will be memorable, hilarious and fun.

5) Travel by yourself. You can spend the day doing exactly what you want, and you will fall in love with being alone all over again.

6) Forgive your parents for any mistakes they made while raising you. No-one is perfect, and everyone makes mistakes.

7) Book a massage after a stressful day. You deserve it!

8) Buy coffee or lunch for someone who looks like they need it. You will both feel better afterwards.

9) Read the books that everyone is always talking about.

10) Go out for a meal by yourself. Wear an outfit you love, order your favorite meal and leave whenever you are ready – bliss.

11) Volunteer for a good cause that is close to your heart.

12) Watch your favorite movie once again.

13) Complete a physical challenge, from a marathon to doing 10 push-ups.

14) Quit the job you hate.

15) Make something from scratch. It feels amazing to create something beautiful by yourself.

16) Learn a foreign language. It will make traveling easier, and it will expand your world perspective.

17) Find a phrase or quote that moves you and make it your personal mantra. Say it to yourself every day whenever you feel stressed or nervous.

18) Watch the sunset. It may be a cliché, but it really is beautiful and awe-inspiring.

19) Conquer a fear that you have struggled with for a long time. Fear only holds you back!

20) Treat yourself to something you really want, like a pair of expensive shoes. It is okay once in a while – you deserve to own something that makes you feel happy!

    Life doesn’t pass anyone by. And a bucket list is more bullshit from the corporations that rule the airwaves and those addicted to the screen. You are more than a 9 digit consumer. You don’t need anyone to tell you what a good life is. God created us with a heart, a mind, and a soul for a reason. It wasn’t for mass consumption.
