I’m settling into 40 and so far so good. I am working on getting myself together physically and mentally to become a better me.
For today's post I decided to call some of my celeb friends who are 40 plus (or I used Google...LOL) and see how they handled entering their 40’s. Check out what they had to say.
“When I turned 40, I was like, huh. I accept myself more now. It was much more comforting.”
“I embraced it. There’s something freeing about 40. There’s something that allowed me to walk the walk and talk the talk of being the woman that I always wanted to be.”
"I was really worried about it, leading up to the day, but now I feel really happy and content with my life. I'm excited to move into the next phase. It's much more exciting than I thought it would be."
“I’m so happy to be in my 40’s and not be in my 20’s and worried if I fit into my skinny jeans or whether I will be able to get into that club.”
“I wish I had known more about nutrition and exercise and how really good it could affect you at a younger age. Then I would have kicked it up a lot sooner.”
“Perfection is boring and I don’t want to fall into that space of being a woman in my 40’s and having the need to feel perfect and not have wrinkles and not have an extra 15 pounds. I just want to do good work and be who I am, transition beautifully, and have a healthy balanced lifestyle.”
“I am very clear and definitely a lot pickier. You know yourself better, what you’ll tolerate and what excites you.”

"For the first time in my life I'm content. I'm so excited. Getting older is the best part of life. Like, I know more than I've ever known. I have gratitude. I know myself better. I feel more capable than ever. And as far as the physicality of it-I feel better at 40 than I did at 25."
"When am I suppose to freak out? When am I suppose to feel like 'Oh, my knee! Oh, ouch! I don't feel any of those things! I've had more fun post-40 than I can remember."
After chatting it up with all my friends I am even more excited about what 40 and beyond has to offer. I'm just a little over a month in but I feel good about where it's going.
They are all over 40! #motivation
