How do you feel about turning 40? Welcome to our site, by the way!
Well, it was traumatic as i approached the age but rather anticlimatic in the aftermath. I equate it to the Y2K event we experienced at the turn of the century with our computers. WB
I have a few years to go, but honestly I'm really looking forward to it. Especially as a woman, there's that significance of this age, the journey, but most of all feeling comfortable within oneself.
Well I turned the ripe old of FORTY, back in November. I feel like could run a marathon, plow the back 10 acres, but you know,I'm just not into it right this very moment... But I'll feel better tomarrow - HAHA :-)
I felt great turning 40! More confident, more independent. I was more upset turning 30, don't ask me why.
not fun anything else you want to ask. you can ask anything you want im all ears.
The roller coaster kind of life immediately stopped and starting all over again...towards contentment!
Hello, great to be here, I loved turning 40! In your 20's you listen to other peoples opinions and start to form your own very quietly! In your 30's you know what your opinion is but make very conscious decisions as to to who hears them! But by you 40's you know what you think, you say what you think and the rest of the world can make their own decision!
It is the freedom that comes with age that gives us the freedom of thought!

Well , it will be an age when everything will still remain monotonous as always .
I didn’t feel anything, it wasn’t a big deal. Just another age! I can’t say I liked it so much though, because it reminds me of the fact that I have lived about half my life! But on the other hand I feel more secure now than when I was around twenty or thirty years old. It is like everything has fallen into place, I know who I am and what I want! I am happy with myself and know what is important in life.
But I don’t recognize the person I look at in the mirror every day as myself. In my mind I am still young and without wrinkles. I wonder if my mind ever is going to be at the same level as my age:) Probably not, but that is OK too!
I thought 40 was easy, 45 I am having trouble with. All I can think of is in 5 years I'll be 50...then only ten more years and I'l be 60! I guess I shouldn't think about it too much! But when I was 35 I was thinking about being 40 and it wasn't bad once I got there....I think you can soften the blow by taking this approach. Hope it helps!
I did not have much problems turning 40,but when I hit 50 there was a bit of a panic for a short period since there was so many things I have not experienced yet in my life.

Sounds like there are lots of changes going on, and it seems that many Hubbers are discouraged. If you were starting from scratch on the site, would you still put in the effort to build your portfolio of hubs here, or would you write primarily for other sites?
