It’s a new day, with a new number.
I leave all my fellow 30-something girls behind,
to step into the fabulous world of 40.
Yep, I’m 40 today!
They say that “Life begins at 40″, well I think I’m pretty sure that was in the old days,
when women looked and behaved much older then the women my age today.
So I couldn’t help but wonder…
Besides growing up, going to school, working, making friends,
falling in and out of love or having children,
what have I been doing all the other 39 years?
Time really flies!
And the funny thing is, I don’t feel older,
or wiser for that matter,
than a couple of years ago, say when I was 36.
Forty just sounds older.
I actually like saying my age now,
because of the reaction most people give me
after hearing how old I am (“What? No way!”).
I just laugh about it.
Like Oprah once said, “I’ve earned these years”,
well that’s my point exactly!
