There was a time when I thought 40 was really OLD! Seriously, people who were 40 were considered to be "out of touch" and past their prime. Now I love telling people that I am 40, because I don't feel or look (thank you genetics) "OLD." Some have said to me that "40 is the new 20," but I can honestly say that I have zero desire to be a 20-something again. Forty is empowering and I will enjoy my fourth decade of life and see what wonderful things it brings.
