Things I realised when I turned 40 | Life Update

I turned 44 in June, so I am not sure if that qualifies as “mid-forties” but I am certainly past 40, they are all just numbers, so who cares? BUT…. it’s very true for me that I care so much less than I did what other think about me, I worry more what I think about myself. As long as I feel good about what I’m doing, then I trust my own judgement. 

So I thought I would put together a list of things that have occured to me in the last few years… can you relate? 

  • I might be 44 physically, but in my head I am somewhere in my late 20s. 
  • At a certain point in life, there is one 2 o’clock in the day. If I am seeing 2am, I am either poorly or worrying. 
  • I can ask any woman my own age for painkillers and she will fish at least one option out of her cavernous bag. 
  • And before you ask, I don’t all carry tweezers (every couple of months someone at works has some sort of tiny emergency and asks all the women if they have some 👀) 
  • I will crane my neck to have a good nosy in someone’s house when I walk past if their lights are on and the curtains are open. 
  • For a while – I became obsessed with Rightmove. 
  • I started a job recently, where my colleagues’ average age was 27 – which was the same number of years I had been working. 
  • I always grab every opportunity to go for a wee when I am out – like some sort of incontinent weirdo. 
  • I still think of 1990 was about 10 years ago. 
  • Some people in my life will always been slightly unhappy, and I will just have to deal with that. 
  • Some people will also not listen to any advice and do their own thing, no matter what. And that’s ok. 
  • I am pretty awesome, even on the days when I tell myself I’m not. 
  • It’s important to be kind to people – you really do never know what someone is going through. 
  • You don’t need permission. 
  • Swim in your own lane. 
  • Social media is all a lie – a highlight reel. 
  • Love is real.
