“40 is the new 30″…I keep hearing that over and over.
I turn 40 this year, it’s a big milestone birthday and I’m excited. Everyone keeps asking me what it feels like, and honestly I don’t know how to answer that. (?) What is 40 supposed to feel like? I’ve never been hung up about my age.
When it comes to aging I feel like Benjamin Button. At a tender age I was very focused on my career and education. While other students were partying and having fun, I liked working long hours and stacking money. My peers liked to feel “buzzed” but I liked the feeling of getting a nice fat check at pay period. I got wifed early and while most girls were out clubbing, I was home baking casseroles. I’m not complaining. I enjoyed it. I’ve always been a homebody.
Ironically, now that I’m older, I feel more spirited and alive than ever. Happiness truly is the key to looking and feeling young. I’m excited about the next decade of life. Perspective, confidence, character, and happiness have been the best birthday gifts.
I’m in good company too. Lots of Hollywood hotties turing 40 in 2014.
