Best advice for turning 40?
My 40th birthday is a week away. I am not mourning turning 40 at all, but I do realize that there is not enough time to do everything. What do you wish you had done, or what was the most gratifying thing you did, when you were approximately this age?
It is time to count your chickens by seeing how stable you are in life and how you can,...make your mark in this world.(The things you have decided to do with tour life).
So far, 40 is the best age I've had in a while. It beats 30 by a long shot. At 30 you're like, "Damn, this sucks. I'm not in my 20s anymore. No more light and cheery romps with energetic and experimental-minded 20-year-olds." (Of course, that turns out not to be true, at least until you get married.) Thirty is actually sort of a drag, though the decade itself turns out OK, at least until the last few months of it when you're like, "Woe is me. She's really bailing. I'm about to be that cliche -- the 40-year-old recently divorced drunk."
Don't think about your age and continue to enjoy your life! Try to be even more happier than before!
I agree with Arlecchino, don't worry about age. Some people are young at 70 and others old at 30. Do worry about your pension and getting it together for your old age. It seems far away in youth, but time speeds up as you get older and other people are very keen to write you off at 50.
Advance Birthday Wishes to you NCBler. Have a blasting day and be happy always.
Live for the moment and you will never regret it :-)
I felt turning 40 was actually turning adult. I felt more comfortable with myself and my decisions. 20's and 30's were rife with insecurity so I can only guess it just gets better from now on. Of course there are things you can never do now - study violin from birth, follow the childhood dream of being an Olympic athlete - physical things. But mentally - go for it! And enjoy.
