A Charmed Life

this getting older malarkey…

If you don’t already know it (you obviously have not read my blog from the beginning) I am 40 this year. As much as I try to not think about it, I am ever so kindly reminded of it on a regular basis by those nearest and dearest to me. So I am turning 40 – so what? What does that even mean? I feel like it is meant to be momentous but I’m not quite sure why. Maybe its because I don’t feel 40 or what 40 is meant to feel like… which according to society is some kind of old.

I have to admit I love being older. I feel healthier and happier than I ever have and more importantly I am having love affair with myself.  I love the confidence I have now being in my own skin. Its true at this age many of the adages your parents told you have come true like you really can count your true friends on one hand; but it is ability to know oneself that I particular love. I can say ‘no’ and not feel like I am missing out on something, or not fitting in AND I don’t need to compare myself to others for nobody has it all figured out.

According to Oprah my emotional age is 28. Hmmm… not sure I agree with that but I do feel younger mentality than my physical age.  I have the same energy and enthusiasm for life as I ever had. Whoever you are, you will die so you might as well enjoy every second you live. That’s the motto I have subconsciously adopted and it seems to be working just fine. So bring on 40 I say…

  1. Apparently 40 is the new 30, maybe Oprah is onto something?
