Yep, I turned 40 this week. WTAF? I can’t let it pass by without recording my thoughts on the matter. I feel 26. My friend says this is my ‘celebrity age’, but it can’t be. I feel 26. How can you not feel any older?
I’m more grown up obviously, and happier now with who I am as a person. I’ve reached a level of self acceptance that I definitely did not have in my 20s. I’m more confident and self assured, I worry less about what other people think. I generally think that I am fantastically lucky and I regularly pray to the universe to give thanks for everything I have. I’m not ashamed of anything. I am true to myself. I enjoy my work more than ever before and the imposter syndrome only rears its ugly head momentarily, because I am more experienced and with the experience comes confidence. I used to worry that my life might be mediocre (how awful!) but now I know that it is extraordinary!
Oh look, I’m a grown up! Maybe I do feel 40 after all…
