Genitiv -pronomen

Hi, just a quick question. Is it possible to say "seines schönen Lebens" or adjective can't be with "seines, ihres, meines etc." and then only ways to say something like this are "des schönen Lebens" or "seiner schönen Lebens" Thank you!

You can absolutely use the possessive adjectives or any other determiner in the genitive. Just remember your example translates as 'of his beautiful life'. 'Die Länge seines schönen Lebens war kurz.'
