    Turning 40!

    I expected to feel a little twinge here, like I did when I turned 30. I haven't really, I feel grateful and happy. Life is good and I intend to celebrate this up!

    I know there are plenty of others here close to this age and past it, I'd love to know how you are feeling about the Big 4-0 or how your 40s surprised you!

    40 is in my rear view mirror, but I have to say 40's were the best years.

    I learned to stop caring what others think so much. I learned I had a voice and how to use it, respectfully and responsibly. I think that comes with not caring so much about another persons judgment, you can speak your mind more freely.

    Mostly it was about accepting myself, with all my faults and quirks. Because after all, that's what makes me human.

    It was liberating after years of being a people pleaser and trying to be perfect. (whatever that is?!)

    Happy Birthday!

    Pretty much what Reinvent said. Except for the part about it being the best years. I'm turning 42 on Monday and it hasn't been the best as far as career goes. Working on that right now though. So I'm feeling optimistic about the next chapter of my life. Happy birthday It's!

    Thanks all!!

    I feel that way too, reinvent. More comfortable in my own skin, less worried about what others may think.
