The BIG 4-0

So, here I am with a little more than a week left of the 30s. I am definitely thinking more about hitting 40 than what I did when I hit 30. 40 is middle aged. The 30s decade was a crazy one. I worked four jobs with hopefully, the one I'm at...being the one I can stay at the longest. I also started work on a Ph.D....first at Kent State and then on to BG to finish up some day.

I was married for four years and divorced. Enough said.

I'm just happy to be physically and mentally healthy. I wish I had the energy I had when I was younger but I still stay active enough to not become a total slob as I hit 40.

If you are over 40, please leave me some advice for hitting 40 and moving beyond. Also, how did you feel when you hit 40? Was it a big deal?

40 kind of came and went for me without me taking much notice. It was a busy time for me, and I just didn't really have time to worry about my age, I guess. My sons were 10 and 5 at the time, and it seemed like I was always on the go. Hitting 50 bothered me a little more, but there wasn't much I could do about it except roll with it.:-)

You'll be fine. I don't think you look 40 at all. You seem younger than that to me. You are intelligent and healthy and fit, and have a sensible head on your shoulders. Those are the things that matter much more than how old you are.
