Adjusting to 40s

I am turning 40 in a few months!  And, just the sound of saying 40 blows my mind.

Both of my parents are now in their 70’s, and my older siblings are also approaching their mid-40’s.  I guess I should say all of us finally have grown up!

Looking back at my 30’s, I love every moment of it.  I’ve given it 110%, and truly have lived my 30’s for myself, not for others.  I’ve experienced love, happiness, joy, heartbreaks, loss, grief, anger, anxiety … You name it. I’ve experienced them all!

Since earlier this year, I began to observe that my wellbeing has begun to change – body, mind, and soul.  My skin has become borderline dryness.  My metabolism has also slowed down.  Unfortunately, my patience has also thinned out and time just seem going by faster than ever.

Rather you are turning 20’s, 30’s, 40’s or even 50’s, every milestone can be a turning point to “pivot” yourself for a more fulfilled life.  Now, I am putting the best version of myself forward into my 40’s.  And, for the next 6 months, I am planning to share how I am adjusting to turning 40’s and being a 40-year old woman, from many aspects, such as lifestyle, wellness, skincare & beauty, and healthy mind.

Look forward to the next milestone!

    Take pride in it! 40 is the new 20 I feel. In my 30’s I was lost and scared of death. My wife divorced me at 40 and it forced me to define who I was. It sucked because I learned that I hated myself and had no identity outside of my marriage. 2 years later i live myself and have better relationships with my sons and family and in the best shape of my life. I believe the answer came form the wisdom of the 40’s that taught me to focus only on that which I can control. Thanks for sharing your post definitely courageous!
