The Life of a Fortysomething

When I was 20, I never imagined what my life would be when I reach 40. I just want to work and have a decent compensation to afford retirement by 30. Well, I did retire from the corporate as planned and then my life started to get more exciting (or challenging). 

Turning 40 made me question my place in the society. Am I still young or should I consider myself old? Should I live a healthier lifestyle? Should I start a beauty regimen? Layer my face with anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, anti-oxidant, and what have you creams. 

Most women avoid revealing their age. I don't feel ashamed about aging. Growing old made me brave and bold. I am no longer afraid of failure and I can give up the things that made me feel shit. I have perfected the art of "deadma" and I can leave people who don't deserve me. 

My life as a fortysomething is awesome. I am living life on my own terms. I am not stuck in a job I hate. I pursue only the things that matters most to me. I surround myself with the people I love.
