The only time you really live fully is from thirty to sixty. The young are slaves to dreams; the old servants of regrets. Only the middle-aged have all their five senses in the keeping of their wits.
There is something about the 4th Decade of our lives – that period from the day we turn 30 to the last day of 39.
In this project, 6 people share their journey into the 4th decade and through it. They share their fears, regrets, worries and concerns but even more, they share their victory, joy and learnings. They share hope. It ropes together, the stories of different 6 Nigerians living in Nigeria, and how they are navigating life, through their 4th Decade.
The 4th Decade Project is made to start up conversations about this phase of life and dealing with the pressures that come with disappointments and expectations.
