    20s are awesome, 30s even better. I'll let you know how the 40s are in another decade or so.

    Marriage, kids, grandkids. And, statistically speaking, you are making less money now than you ever will in your life. IOW, it only gets better from here. Enjoy yourself.

    Well, by the time you are sixty - you would spent twenty years in bed and over three years eating!

    I barely remember being 25, that would have been Sept. 1981. Lower insurance rates for male drivers was a good thing back then too. I was single, had a fairly decent job and was drumming for a local Country/Rock Band.

    Milestones?

    I remember turning 30 in 1986, by that time was married (never thought I'd do that, working on my second one) had a son and had purchased a home (working on third one of those.) Different job, in and out of the music businesss.

    Age 40 came and I wondered if I'd survive it. Was going through the pain of a divorce, moving out, had changed jobs and was really not looking forward to the future.

    Then I hit 50. Living in an entirely new century (saw it turn at age 43.) Had remarried to a wonderful gal, sold my 2nd house and purchased the third one we currently reside and was doing music in two bands and having a blast with life.

    At age 55, I think I am hitting my stride, both wifey and I go shooting, I have added bass guitar to my other musical ability and we are just living La Vida Loca.

    Milestones are measured in how you look at them, while looking back. You can't forsee what you will be doing at the milestone, just what is going on along the road to them.

    Good luck, stay safe and enjoy life to it's fullest!

    One year behind you. By the time I hit that milestone my youngest will be 19 and maybe mom and I can downsize and enjoy life some.

    Now every day is a milestone for me. It takes a lot longer to count my blessings. The kids are in a band. The grand kids are learning how to play the guitar. All the earth shattering problems of youth now seem insignificant, if I can vaguely remember. Spiritual strength waxes as the physical wanes. You diversify your portfolio by storing more of your treasure in heaven. Volunteer work is more rewarding than all the jobs you had before retiring. True value is in relationships, with God, family, friends, community, and country. You get better at point shooting.

    Well, I've found that life gets better after the milestones.
