absolutely love my 40’s!

in Personal

The truth is my grandfather was right when he told me that by the time I turned 40 I would be fully mature. I would add that approaching 40 makes me feel fulfilled and happier than ever.

I have only one issue with myself so far: if I have enjoyed my life between 30 and 40 so much, what lies in store for Vivi in the future? Am I just going to become even better at managing every minute of my life and enjoying life as it is constantly? Or am I just going to collapse on my couch, burying myself in work on the computer? Very tempting, both of them, I must say.

For all of you who are too young to understand, let me tell you a secret that people do not share fully: 40 is a great age. You are proud about your achievements, you are stable and balanced, you are not completely depressed about the way you look (in my case I have always seen myself as barely presentable, so why bother?), you are definitely not looking for new people to share things with (because you already have a life, and you have people you know very well and love dearly in your life), you have an income and you excel in something (so you are not desperate to find the right career anymore, in fact you don’t want to change jobs unless you have hit 40 and never had the right job!), you know all your minuses and pluses and you live with them, you are not looking for recognition as you are more inclined to offer it to the young ones. Above all, if you are lucky as I am, you have a wonderful family, awesome job and fantastic friends!

Barely presentable? Vivi, you must be kidding or fishing for compliments. Well, here is one: You are a beauty.

Cu drag.
