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!!'

Best Answer

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!

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!

Best Answer

I was really fine with it - it was 30 that was the problem with me, ha! Did not want it to happen!! lol

Best Answer

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.

Best Answer

I'm not even thinking about 40.....I have more time as I will be 32 on Saturday!

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.

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.

Best Answer

I felt a year older than 39
