When I turned 40, I wasn’t bothered. Actually I was gladestatic. Until one day I read and article about turning 40, about how your body changes. Then it stated “middle aged“, NOOO, this can’t beohhhh, I honestly though that was when you turned 50. So what’s 50?  I’m not looking forward to that. I don’t like being a grown up anymore.frown

When you watch a movie and see an actress the same age as you, who’s had surgery, it makes me sad for our generation. What’s wrong with growing older? heartbreak

Now my daughters are becoming teenagers, have just started their periods, and I am now getting closer to mine stopping. WHY and WHEN did this happen, what was I doing to miss all this.

What does the future hold, I have no idea, but I’m thankful that I have a caring husband and two wonderful girls.estaticheart

    • i only just felt this way when i 4 days ago turned 50.  great upsetting shock for me, very strange.  i started to think of mortality, my health, my relationships, my life.....etc. i was teary, i was regretful, i was many things.  so after what i call a bit of much need self bashing i have promised myself to take best care of myself and interests and let other things fall into place around that.heartestatic

    • I welcome being older, it does not bother me, nor do I regret anything.  Age brings many new experiences.heart

      I am 51, and keep myself healthy and fit.

    • The family support you have is wonderful. I’m 52 next week and sometimes I feel strange in my own body. I’m working through it and my husband is supportive, saying he finds me as beautiful as the day we met. estatic I went through a difficult perimenopause and gained stubborn weight around my middle so I’m learning all over again what clothing fits and looks good on me. It’s a process - but I like that you have a good solid foundation at home for whatever the future brings for you as your body matures.estatic

    • I am very lucky, my husband & daughters are my best friends. But I don’t have any English female friends living close and really miss not having girlie chats, & extra support. Since moving to Italy 10 years ago, it’s just been us 4, no family close. But I’m lucky. Thanks for your comments happy x
