Top 10 Reasons Women Over Forty Rock
My birthday is fast approaching and my twins, the youngest of my four sons, asked me how hold I was going to be. When I told them that I’m going to be 43 years old, their eyes widened and then they quickly recovered and said, “That’s not old, Mom.”
It was cute because they were clearly horrified by my age and I can’t blame them. When I was eleven, I also thought that anyone over twenty was old. I thought for sure that I’d have it all figured out when I was a grown up.
Not so much.
I’m still working on it. I haven’t got it all figured out and doubt that I ever will but there is one thing I’m sure of, getting older has its advantages. Don’t get me wrong, I could do without the crow’s feet, the lines around my mouth and my dwindling eyesight but there are a good number of perks for women that come with age.
Here’s my Top 10.
- Once menopause hits (I’m not there yet but in the grand scheme of things it’s not that far away) we don’t have to worry about getting pregnant. Bonus!
- We don’t compare ourselves to twenty-something girls anymore because we’re not twenty-something girls. In fact, we don’t compare ourselves to anyone. We’re comfortable in our skin thank you very much.
- We don’t get carded at the bar or liquor store. (Hey, it’s one less thing to worry about.)
- More often than not, we’re in a better financial position in our forties than we were in our twenties and if we’re not we’ve got a plan on how to get there.
- We are far less concerned with what other people think. Don’t like me? Okay. I’ll live.
- We don’t settle for anything less than what we truly want and we’re not afraid to say it.
- We are in our sexual prime. We know our way around a man’s body and our own.
- We’ve learned to pick our battles. Life is too short for drama.
- We now know that our mothers are brilliant and we should apologize every single day for being so horrid when we were teenagers.
- We know that there’s always more to learn, that we never really grow up and that age is a state of mind.
