I am glad to be turning 40 in a month. My first 40 years were filled with anxiety, depression, regret, etc. Now I feel more relaxed, and accepting of what life brings. Not so scared as I was before, and def not a doormat anymore. I hope there are others out there who feel the same way I do. Growing up in a tough childhood makes it hard for later years, but now that I am older, and have read and learned so much more about me, I feel ready to dive in unafraid.
