40 years is a significant milestone. 40 in human lifespan theories is often associated to a trying time most known as mid-life crisis. However, in Chinese philosophy, there is a beautiful adage that goes: “si-shi-bu-huo”, which means at 40, people can handle all crisis and difficulties steadily without being overwhelmed and confused given enough life experience.


Let me take this chance to congratulate Singapore Association of Counselling for achieving this great milestone. We look forward to SAC creating more impact, as it continues to care for our nation, and building communities of carers.
