Default Feeling a little depressed.

I'm feeling a little depressed these days with a side of fear and some nostalgia.
And I absolutely know why.
And I also know it's no big deal. But, it's bugging me anyway.

I have only a month left in my thirties.
A month from today I will be 40 and, honestly, it's bothering me a little.

40 is nothing. Before you know it, you'll be 60 and 40 will look great!

Forty was just this past december for me - felt a little wierd, especially with my wife still in her 20s and a lot of her friends just breaking into the 30s, but ya know what? It's no big deal.

You're only as old as the women with whom you sleep.

I'm turning 40 next month too - apparently before you! I heard 40 is the new 39 so I'm not even gonna blink when it comes. I find I'm really in a good spot now with my wife and kids, and I've got my health, my home, my job, and money in the bank and I'm just thankful to be where I am. I could not care less what the calendar says.

Thats almost exactly what my wife says..


"You're only as old as the women you feel "

I've said this since High School (dated much older women at the time)


AGE is only a Number
Maturity comes from Experience
Youth Comes from the Heart.

It will pass quickly...

Then you'll have ten years to worry about turning 50...

Im 48 and looking forward to getting older , it beats the alternative just think of all your buddies that did not make the 40 mark just except it and grow old graciously I think it is kinda cool.

I always said it was an uphill struggle to my 40th and after that I eased off and just cruised
