Softly Closing Doors
According to the founder of Wellaholic — a grooming and aesthetic treatments service chain — 40 is when life truly begins.

We celebrate birthdays once a year. Some prefer to host a big party for families and friends, where loved ones can come together for a festive celebration. Others prefer a quiet, non-eventful dinner with a special someone at a Michelin-starred restaurant or over a simple home-cooked meal.

They are all different versions of the same happiness. Birthdays are not occasions only meant for celebrations. Birthdays are opportunities to reflect on our beginnings and the distances we have meandered through. Birthdays are also milestones to take stock and see what lies ahead in our journeys of life.

When we turn older by a decade, birthdays seem to take on a deeper meaning — akin to formidable, symbolic milestones that cast a judgemental eye to what we have (or have not) accomplished. They carry more meaning and compel us into action.
