Turning 40 has been a major roller coaster of emotions for me, not sure why, but it’s been crazy.  Part of me is very sad and just not taking it well at all, the other part of me doesn’t know what to think about it all.  

Basically I’m in a state of wonderment, wondering when it gets not so cloudy and a lot clearer.  In reality I know it’s just a number, but I guess part of me is not aging gracefully and is not wanting to make it easy. It’s all very surreal to me.

I’m hoping to have happier thoughts about it once i get more use to being 40 now and not 30 something, but man the 30’s sure did fly by WAY too fast...UGH!

    • I find that people who have your reaction to their age are more caught up on what they think they have missed or may not be able to do anymore.  You don't necessarily want to do those things, but the lack of control or having those options are what may bother you more.  Or, "now they will expect me to ________" (you fill in the blank).  

      Figure out what you think was or will be taken from you.
