It was like a weight had been lifted....I had spent my whole adult life worrying about 'getting old'....and I thought 40 was it....but once I got there, I was like "This is what I've been so worried about??? Really???" Now I say 'Bring it on!!'
Well they say life begins at forty, then when I turned fifty they said...fifty is the new forty...whatever! Age is just a number to me....your as young as you feel!
I'll let you know when I get there.
I felt fine. It was just another day. Life gets better as you get older.
I was afraid lmao! i vowed to never reach this age, now i'm 44 so its all good!
Hey, 40 is just a number ablford - a very large number at that! It didnt feel any different for me than 39 did...In fact, aside from a few aches and pains, I still feel like a young man, but I've had to cut back on my consumption of chocolate cake - doctors orders, no more than 2 a day!
I was really fine with it - it was 30 that was the problem with me, ha! Did not want it to happen!! lol
It was a big turning point in my life. I had the most wonderful birthday week, one like I'd never had before. People kind of came out of the woodwork to be nice to me and were so generous with both their time and giving me gifts etc. Noone wants to turn into a new decade but this has to be the best decade so far in my life. So, how do I feel? I feel great....a few more eye wrinkles and lots of white hair coming through but I still feel great.
I'm not even thinking about 40.....I have more time as I will be 32 on Saturday!
No biggie, no age has ever really affected me.
Great ... 30 was much harder for me.
40 is a good age .. you're usually more settled in your life and career and still young!
My pleasure ..
Is it your birthday??? Come on, I wanna know! :)
I was like, OK, where is my mid life crisis? I sure didn't feel like I was 40. I still have the drive from my college years, which leaves me wishing I took more advantage of the opportunities I was presented back when I could act on them. But I still feel I've done well so far in my life with the important things.
Pretty much exactly the same. As my much older brother says, its just a number. He's a crane mechanic and says he can climb to the top of a tower crane with a lot less huffing and puffing than most people half his age.
Happy... got my health and few regrets
26 months away
I thought am l going to live on my 40th birthday l was in itensive care
40 didn't bother me much, 50 was hard. 60 holds a lot of promise for me now
i m only 36
Happier times ahead I hoped, boy was I wrong!
I am sure it will be better for you. :)
They say that's when life begins.
I am sure your life is wonderful
I felt many things. I felt surprised I had lived that long. I felt that 40 seemed young when I was 39, but had seemed very old when I was 19. I felt that I had seen and experienced so much in my 40 years, it was exhausting, and I couldn't even imagine lasting another 40.
