My current toyboy had a heart attack at 40. non smoker , fit, clean out of the blue. After a recuperation period, we reassessed our life. No point saving up for being old and grey, do it now. We booked a round the world trip, went and did it.
He wanted to climb the sydney harbour bridge. I was too scared to let him go on his own, so I did it too. a lot of Ibuprofen next day, but I'm glad we did it. 10 years on, he got passed fit to go back to diving, we have dived all over the world. We may be old and grey, we may be broke, we will still have our memories.
