    Turning 40 wasn't bad. I'm having trouble at 42 because of all the changes going on in my life. Not that life is over or anything I just am trying to figure where I fit into it all. Between my sis taking her life to my dd graduating to my kids just not needing me much anymore it's just a little tough at times.
    Hubby is 11 yrs older than me and hated turning 50. He just feels/felt more than half his life is over. I keep/kept reminding him of all the wonderful things that lie ahead.
    Just keep learning & growing.

    Turning 40 was not a big deal for me. I wasn't too thrilled when I hit 44 though, having the numbers match just seemed strange. But at 45 I just figure whatever age someone is is fine.

    Turning 40 was a big deal for me! I broke out in a rash and stayed in bed for two days. I think it was society's opinion of women over 40 that bothered me. I feel society tends to minimize older women and that bothers me a lot!

    I turn 40 this coming December, and I've decided like Heather was talking about that it's just a number. I've set some goals to meet by my b-day like losing some weight (on my way), eating healthier, exercising, and some other stuff. But I don't want to be one of those women who lies about her age. I just want to be healthy and look as good as I can, so that when people ask, I can answer honestly and have them say well you don't look it or something like that!!
