As I count down the days left of being in my thirties (December 26th, 2012), I honestly thought I was going to feel panicked and struggle with turning the big “FOUR-O!” But, exactly the opposite is happening….I am filled with excitement, pride, and anticipation of what this new decade holds for me. I really do believe, even more than ever, that age is just a number. It sounds so cliche, but it’s true! Hello, have you seen Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford, Jennifer Aniston, and Cameron Diaz, just to name a few??? These woman are more beautiful now then when they were in their twenties; and the confidence “older” woman exude is something to aspire to.
So, from my soon to be forty year old ass to yours (no matter your age), don’t be afraid of getting older. Embrace who you are, where you’re at in life and be grateful for the lessons you’ve learned and the laugh lines you’ve earned….after all, forty is the new gorgeous. ; )
