Look Who's 40

Last week I turned 40.  Not really much to say about that.  I wasn't sad or depressed in any way. 

Actually, I found myself announcing it to everyone.  I also felt myself walking just a little bit taller... kinda tough to do since I'm only 4'11".

I also found myself not giving a shit about what anyone thinks.  I'm short.  I'm over weight.  I'm broke ...and I don't care. 

I love me, faults and all.  I'm no where near perfect but I'm no scumbag either.  I love me and if you don't like me I don't care.  Say it to my face.  Say it behind my back.  I just really don't care.

A friend asked me how I felt about turning 40.  I said, "I'm not dead so I'm pretty happy about it".  I guess that about sums it up.

I'm complicated.  I've had my share of difficulties.  I've had my share of blessings

I'm 40 and I couldn't be happier.

Happy Birthday Woman!

40's are nice arent they? The right to be who we are and no one's opinion really matters anymore...

My motto in life became "love it or lump it" when I het my 40's

Happy 40th last week. I felt the same way about turning 40, like I had somehow graduated to a higher level of maturity. I felt almost 'wiser', lol.

Now I am almost 50 and I must say that my 40's have been pretty darn great. In part because when I was turning 40 I vowed to not spend my next 40 like my last 40...I was going to do what made ME happy. The kids where grown and gone, I had only me to think about and that was very different.

I hope your next 40 brings you as much happiness!
