    Struggling With 40

    I turned 40 this past June. I had all these plans to eat right and exercise and go into my 40's strong. So far that hasn't happened. In fact I am doing the opposite. When will I feel motivated to make this important life change?!

    "...well it's better than the alternative...," I swear I will kill them.  I turn 40 in 4 weeks.  I would be lying to say that I'm not a little scared.  My career is ok, but the one thing that has haunted me for years is love.  I've never truly...

    I am 40. I don't act like.
